Does such a thing exist? i know cybergoth does, the combination of cyberpunk and gothic, but does steamgoth?  If not, then i'll be creating a new niche.  Does anyone know of any clothing that would suit a steamgoth?

I intend to pull off that style anyway once I get an outfit sorted. Wether it exists or not.

I think that that style does exist, although it's not referred to as that. I know a lot of people who are into the "goth" subculture (whatever it may be) are also steampunks.

I think that "Steamgoth" would focus on more Romantic clothes, or whatever they may be called. Things like velvet blazers, pinstripe pants. Then again, I don't know much about gothic fashion...

I am pretty sure it already exists, lots of younger steamers come from goth. Goths love goggles almost as much as we do. Many of them love Victoriana as well. The lolita style works in goth and steam. Goth frequently involves altering and making your own outfits too (esp. before Hot Topic.) I could go on with the overlaps, but suffice to say that if I show up on goth night looking steamy I fit right in.

There is nothing new under the sun. But you can be the first on your block ;-)

Ah, very good then, as my personal belief is that nothing is original!  Grin  So now, all i need is a leather coat, gears, rivets and those soviet nuclear goggles i saw...

Definitely a steamgoth over here, but I'm actually actively trying to shift away from my entirely black and white wardrobe... not that I don't love it, I just feel the need for a change now and then.

And come on! Who's going to tell me that Bauhaus, Sisters of Mercy, etc. doesn't work (at least a little) with steampunk? Come on!

It totally exists, though I'm not much for goth myself, I couldn't resist sharing one of my latest creations, which seems to fit the part.

The first steamgoth was probably Queen Victoria. She wore black mourning clothes for years after her husband died.

-Laughs- BRILLIANT!

I guess my wardrobe is considered "steamgoth". Once I wore my white skirt and blouse with a fire engine red corset. With matching fishnet gloves. The outfit was then topped off with my black veiled bowler hat. I also had my dark lipstick and black eye liner on at the time.

When I got to my friend's B-day party she told me I looked like I popped out of a Marylin Manson video.

Personally, I really wasn't that surprised. I was kinda going for the whole dark look anyway.

You can say I'm classified as a  "gothic anime kid" at school basically.

My feelings for Manson and Anime aside; Steam's really quite flexible. A darker, more dystopian Steampunk (Unhallowed Metropolis; check it out) is pretty much what you're after. I mean, victorian goth is pretty much just steampunk with a different dominant colour scheme and popular materials; and vice verca.

I remember me trying to explain Steam as a fashion to a friend at school.

"So, think of how Heather dresses, right?"

Heather is my girlfriend, and dresses loli/victorian goth.

"Yeah..."

"Okay. Now picture that. But boy clothes. And instead of black, use brown. And instead of silver, use brass."

"Ohh..."

I would say the primary difference is that steampunk focuses on the anachronistic technology, whereas victorian goth is a little more... like a victorian horror story. Sans the mad science, though.

Also, I feel that unfortunately a lot of goths(not all, of course!) have lost the spirit of punk rock-esque rebellion, whereas it's still vibrant in steampunk.

lolita i view as more a japanese interpretation of the rococo period in france,
but that said, my wife is working on a lolita steampunk costume, and while some have bashed upon her that it is impossible and 'stupid', its nice too see that others actually see the similarities.

Klockwork is correct about lolita; I was a lolita for quite some time, albeit mostly in spirit because those incredible outfits are so expensive! I do have two custom dresses and a blouse though. I was a sweet lolita. :3

people generally think "Victorian" when it comes to lolita, and certainly victoriana has a lot to do with influencing the style, but the decadence and the elegance and luxury associated with lolita have their roots in the Rococo. Marie Antoinette is a practical goddess to lolitas, same as Alice from Alice in Wonderland (which is probably where the Victorian comes in...)

I think that lolita and steampunk can definitely overlap and really look cute together.

that said, since lolita is often connected to gothic styles, steamgoth is in existence and looks quite nice. I saw some photos on flickr labeled with an "Unhallowed Metropolis" tag, which seems to be a steamgoth sort of game. don't know too much about it though.

Unhallowed Metropolis.

I'm working with a few of my friends who are in the whole loita scene to create some outfits inspired by steampunk which will deal with brass, leather, and movable parts.

 Smiley A friend and I were going to start a store called SteamGoth.
I'm an oldtymer, the only reason I have so much black in my wardrobe is that the good cuts, come up in the second hand stores more often. Though, our attitudes are more punk than goth. For what ever that's worth.

i do believe this exists. i have been calling my self steamgoth for several months now. though i do add other colors besides white and black such as faded purple,olive drab, and dark browns. for me steampunk is how i view the world its a movement... but i do so adore darker humor,clothing,and movies as well as i will be a die-hard goth rock fan til' the day i perish! so there you go. i first saw the term coined by Mr. Ian Stone. and sort of hijacked it Tongue sorry Mr Stone!

Yeah, I suppose I could call my self that. I am a morbid Victorian Goth at heart. Although I love brass and science and progress just as much.
It's the two sides of my personality and its nice how they fit quite well into the many aspects of Steampunk.

Another steamgoth here. At least, I suppose that's what you'd call it. I'm interested in steampunk and goth, anyway, and like to dress in both fashions.

Actually, before steampunk was a word, goths were dressing up in 19th centure and earlier clothing anyways, so I'm gonna go with yes.
