What are Steampunk Hats? Well, the steampunk movement can be described as the intersection between industrial-era technology and romance. The aesthetic of steampunk fashion is equal parts science fiction, Victorianism, western pioneer spirit and anachronism. Following the imaginative blueprints that were laid out by H.G. Wells, Jules Verne, Mary Shelley, etc., a place for creative expression was born - without the restrictions of time and place. Village Hat Shop's variety of Steampunk hats encompass a range of styles and price points and are a great way to get your foot in the door of this popular fashion subculture.
