League of S.T.E.A.M episode 4 Here Comes the BrideThe Adventures of the League of S.T.E.A.M. web series continues with “Here Comes the Bride” – in this fun short, a duo of eccentric inventors decide to construct the perfect woman for their lovelorn colleague… but of course, hilarity quickly ensues!

The series is known for its enthusiastic references to pop-culture classics – look for nods to Weird Science, Star Trek, Bride of Frankenstein, and many more.  Milynn Sarley from Team Unicorn joins the cast with an elegant Steampunk-inspired take on the classic Bride character, brought to life in an over-the-top mad science sequence set to a Dubstep track by Johnny Atar of Klaypex.  The episode also features some great music by punk-bluegrass band Larry and His Flask, and Steampunk favorite Steam Powered Giraffe.

This is the fourth episode of The Adventures of the League of STEAM: Season 3 – a Kickstarter-funded adventure/comedy web series, and the longest-running Steampunk web series online.  You can check out the rest of the series here!
