Steampunk city

December 7, 2011 | by Ken

Oamaru, New Zealand is a curious town. As Karen noted, the locals have embraced their Victorian history. But they’ve also embraced the pseudo-Victorian, thoroughly modern art form of steampunk.

It’s delightful to see cultured, costumed townspeople against a backdrop of clunky, fantastical machinery. I love a town that doesn’t take itself too seriously.
