There’s nothing steampunkier than sipping wine from an Octopus wine glass while wearing your favourite steampunk clothes! Today I have scouted out the best Octopus wine glasses on the internet! But first of all, why are Octopuses so steampunk?
Why is the Octopus Steampunk?
Octupuses feature heavily in steampunk literature and design. The steampunk fascination with them probably stems from one of the most famous steampunk novels 20,000 leagues under the sea. The Octopus also influenced the Lovecraftian novel ‘Call of Cthulu’ although this is more fantasy than steampunk.
If you take a look at the Octopus, it naturally looks like it should be wearing goggles! But what is important to note is the ingenious way that it moves and expels water — almost like a steam powered machine. The Octopus was also the symbol of the Industrial revolution — an integral aspect of the steampunk era. Steampunk is all about invention and creation, and this is probably one of the most inventive creatures on the planet, and so it’s no surprise that Octopuses have become an integral steampunk animal.
