If you haven't heard of steampunk yet you're missing out. It's origins started out as sub-genre of science fiction and it's moved it's way over to fashion. Think of it as an edgy mix of Victorian romance, goth, gypsy with an industrial age nod.

The fusion belly dance troupe Torque recently unveiled a new choreography with costumes to match. These ladies make every bit of their costuming by hand! We're talking pleats, ruching, fringe and more—literally hours of sewing goes into each costume. Here are few detail photos of some of their handiwork.
