Steampunk is such an awesome category to browse through on Etsy. You can steampunk anything it seems! Here's how Wikipedia defines it...

Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction and speculative fiction, frequently featuring elements of fantasy, that came into prominence in the 1980s and early 1990s. The term denotes works set in an era or world where steam power is still widely used — usually the 19th century, and often Victorian era Britain[citation needed] — but with prominent elements of either science fiction or fantasy, such as fictional technological inventions like those found in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne, or real technological developments like the computer occurring at an earlier date.

It's quite random, but a lot of fun. Here's a selection of fun finds on Etsy.
