Looked it up (somehow) on Wikipedia one day. ...No I'm serious.
I think it was because I was looking at Lolita fashion, which I'm also interested in. Lolita and Steampunk were both under the neo-victorian category.
Anyway, read it on Wiki. "Oh this is cool."
Google imaged it. "Oh this is really cool."
Started doing some research and stuff here and there.. It seemed like I've always been in Victorian-like fashions for a while.
About four or so years of admiring from afar.. I joined an airship with a friend's help and made my own outfit xD
