Steampunk

A somewhat obscure genre even within geeky circles, steampunk combines Victorian-era nostalgia with tech flair, imagining a world where, say, gear-driven analog computers became wildly popular in the late 19th century. Steampunk outfits tend to thus be particularly retro-cool, and, for many fans, there's the added benefit that they kind of dress like this all the time anyway. Potential pitfalls: You may remind people of steampunk's highest profile moment in recent pop culture, the Will Smith-Kevin Kline bomb Wild Wild West.
