We must bring before your attention the newly released details of the BBC’s explosively popular feature, “Sherlock”. The first season aired in 2009, and the second in 2011. However, the reason for our recent expenditure of smelling salts is due to the fact that THEY ARE FILMING SEASON THREE AS WE SPEAK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Very sparingly have details been released, per Moffat’s usual. We have been given a set of clues for the titles of the three 90minute episodes which will constitute season 3.

What is this “Steampunk” of which you speak?

Unknown-200-612x612

Steampunk is an art form. An expression of those souls old at heart. Of all the arts in which it has manifested, it is quite possibly literature that receives the most attention. It utilizes late Victorian era aesthetics (Clockwork gears), fashion (top hats and bustle dresses), and general cultural influences, and superimposes it with futuristic technology. (And zombies. Sometimes zombies.) It is generally agreed that Jules Verne is the father of the Steampunk movement, as he was the most popular of those who mused on the future of technology while living in the prudent and picturesque 19thc. Some others who unknowingly contributed to this neo-victorian revival are H.G. Wells, Edgar Rice Burroughs, and, to some degree, Edgar Allen Poe (though less in a inter-species, time travelling hero sense as much as a dark literature way).

But ultimately, we must show rather than describe this phenomenon:

Etsy for accessories

Polyvore for entire ensembles

Barnes and Noble for literature (be sure to look into Arthur Slade’s “Hunchback Assignment” series, as well as “Monstrumologist” by Rick Yancy)

Pinterest is an excellent place to view artwork

You may be interested in films like “Around the world in 80 Days”, and “Treasure Planet”, which exhibit steampunk tendencies.
