I freely admit I’m not the biggest fan of Steampunk, and that’s nobody’s fault really – it’s just not my bag, baby. But, that said, I’ve always had a soft spot for the Steampunk Ghostbusters, ever since they first popped up on the cos-play scene.
Now some of those clever wonks have gone and made themselves a fantastic, silent-film era version of Ghostbusters – in their own way, they’ve matched and occasionally exceeded the last retro-imagining of Ghostbusters.
Here now – rescued from an old steamer trunk in someone’s dusty attic, no doubt – is The League of S.T.E.A.M. (Supernatural and Troublesome Ectoplasmic Apparitional Management). Big ups to Colldier.com for the original story.
When your seance moves from floating trumpets to angry spirits, who are you going to telegram?
And for those curious, the rag-time cover of Ghostbusters is courtesy of Scott Bradlee – you can (and should) check out his album of 80s covers, in piano rag-time of course, on iTunes.
But wait! There’s more!
That’s just their parody of the Ghostbusters TV commercial – they actually have a web series!
