The suggester says this about League of S.T.E.A.M. by ~brainwreck: "The main issue with taking outside pictures of such specifically themed characters is finding a place that they fit into and that would look like they're in their own universe. These people fit the setting so well in full steampunk uniform, they're heroic, determined, confident, ready and geared up for the worst, or the best." ...This photo, and all others from the same series (and artist, for that matter) are amazing and I have to say that these guys are my new heroes.

"The League of STEAM (Supernatural and Troublesome Ectoplasmic Apparition Management) is an organization comprised of Inventors, Scientists, Adventurers, Craftsmen, Monster and Creature Hunters, and Paranormal Researchers!"

You can find out more about them at www.leagueofsteam.com
And I highly recommend scoping out the youtube videos. They get up to some pretty wacky hijinks.

HA thats pretty awesome, steampunk ghostbusters. i will have to poke around to see if they threw in a Stanley Steamer(the car not the carpet people that yoinked the name!) Ecto-1.

id say great setting, looks like the typical disused New England factory(and i know from living there all the old factories and power plants date back to eras of steam.)

Haha, of all the weird coincidences, I saw that at SEMA! [boyfriend is an automotive journalist so I shoot for him frequently] It was on the back of a similar bedecked flatbed. So awesome, but the area was so kind of cramped. I don't think I got a shot as clean as yours. Very nice.
