Received a message this morning from Mr. A. Fogel, from the notorious League of S.T.E.A.M., who elaborates on Panic! At The Disco’s newest video, The Ballad of Mona Lisa. In it, he says…
Panic! At the Disco s new music video The Ballad of Mona Lisa features a bold Steampunk aesthetic. To create this unique look, the production collaborated with LA-based performance group The League of S.T.E.A.M., who are known for their elaborate Steampunk props and costumes. In addition to providing pre-production design and story consultation, the group comprised nearly all of the background performers in the video, supplied featured props and gadgets, and outfitted several additional characters in bold Victorian-inspired fashion. The Leagues involvement throughout the many aspects of production helped to realize the authentic Steampunk atmosphere the band wanted.
Most certainly an outstanding video, and it encouraging to see a growing awareness of Steampunk continue to expand! (After indulging in the aforementioned video, please do consider a visit to the League of STEAM!)
