The League of S.T.E.A.M.

We like this very cool and stylish Steampunk theater performance group from Southern California. S.T.E.A.M. stands for "Supernatural and Troublesome Ectoplasmic Apparition Management" which is why they are also known as "the Steampunk Ghostbusters." They design and make their own costumes and props... they've got the Steampunk aesthetic down perfect. I can't do better than provide this little excerpt from their own description of their mission:

"Our talented group of inventors and actors take the audience back to a time of scientific adventure; a common ground between the paranormal and the Pythagorean. We are monster hunters from the Victorian era. From up on the stage to mingling the crowd, our members engage the audience with proton packs capable of firing blasts of “steam,” zombie manservants on chain-leads, net guns and titillating electro-shock packs and ethereal glowing ghosts. Every piece of machinery is meticulously designed, detailed, and fully functional, from the steam cannon to the extendable “Punchy Fist”..."

Their Ghostbusters parody is hilarious... "Whom Shall You Telegram?"
