    We know exactly what Victorian kiltwear was like, thanks to MacLeay.

    But though Steampunk mens' outfits rely on Victorian clothing styles in general (frock coats, top hats, etc) for some reason when it comes to kilts the Victorian genre is thrown out the window and they rely mainly on 20th century Highland dress, using 20th century sporrans and even Utilikilts.

    As far as metalwork is concerned, note that Victorian outdoor dress is generally free of it. Note that there's no metalwork on the sporrans, and not even a badge on the Glengarry.
    Victorian military uniforms would probably my basis for a kilted steampunk costume. There’s more accessories for modding and the red coat has a nice pop. Pith helmets are also popular in steam punk.



    Give this fellow a ray gun and some welding goggles and you’re halfway there. ;)
