Hallelujah praise the lord! My prayer was answered!
And to add to that there are variations of steampunk. Diesel punk is basically 20's to 40's era clothing with "diesel" technology, and Atom punk is Cold war era with that technology, and Cyberpunk is anything past like... the 80's and future I spose with cyber tech. Don't quote me on cyberpunk... it's a little weirder.
