Other Influences The influence of many other subcultures can also be witnessed on these dresses. Gothic subculture is one of the cultures, whose influence we can find most on these dresses. The elements of the Gothicism are very much similar to those of the steampunk. The modern Goth culture also started flourishing in the Victorian Age in the form of literature. Similar to steampunk, it also believes in vampires, ghosts and the extreme capabilities of science and technology. Steampunk is also based on almost similar themes, but with some differences. Gothic culture focuses a lot on the negative traits of humanity through its metaphors, which is not part of steampunk. Because of the negative traits, most of the gothic dresses are available in dark shades. You can get both dark and light shades when you buy the steampunk costumes, and the influence of Gothicism can be vividly witnessed on many of them. You can see that a number of the dresses on this page are available in the gothic-style dark colors. As a matter of the fact, sometimes the term gothic and steampunk are used synonymously; however, there are the differences as mentioned above.
Apart from Gothicism, many other subcultures also put a great influence on the steampunk costumes. Lolita culture of Japan also influences the steampunk culture in various ways, and designers have added its elements also on the punk dresses. Moreover, the youth movement named hippie also impacted the steampunk subculture up to some extent.
