New Year’s Day in Philly: You’ve Never Seen Steampunk Like This

Woohoo! It’s the Mummers! My favorite thing in Philly!

After 2013’s apocalypse anxiety ridden presentations, several of the 2014 Mummers Fancy Brigades went down the fantasy road with steampunk, classic fantasy literature, and Atlantis.

MyPhl17 is the only TV station that covers the annual Mummers Parade and Fancy Brigade competitions and it’s to my endless irritation that their video embed codes don’t bloody work. So, here are some photos and links to video!
