My girlfriend is deeply into "Steampunk." For those of you who are not "in the know," Steampunk is what you get when you take regular punk and cook it in a pot of boiling water. This causes the punk in question to dress like a nineteenth century coal miner. Or something like that. I generally encourage this hobby, since, like my own Wonder Woman fandom, it is at its heart an excuse to look at pictures of very pretty people in ridiculous outfits. I suppose it was only a matter of time before the two worlds collided.

I give you: Gaslight Justice League! "Sillof's Workshop" has created these titans of the 1800's. Normally, I would make some snide comment about him having WAY too much free time on his hands, but these are kickass enough that I can't bring myself to do it. You may notice that in a display of bipartisanship between the Silver Age Justice League and cartoon Justice League, Sillof has included both Aquaman and Hawkgirl. However, as with any rendition of the Justice League, the highlight is the Wonder Woman.

Holy crap! She is totally about to kick contemporary author Friedrich Nietzsche's ass! You may wonder why certain liberties were taken with the colour scheme of her outfit. The simple explanation is that in the 1880's, Wonder Woman didn't give a shit about America.

I'm getting into this Steampunk stuff now. Of course, making Wonder Woman look good is like shooting fish in a barrel. I think I'll create a Steampunk version of someone like Starman (Left, fighting bear). Oh shit! Someone beat me to it!
