Beauty & The (Mechanical) Beast: Disney Steampunk

This is a series of steampunk Disney characters by DeviantARTist MecaniqueFairy. Now there's been some argument about whether they're actually steampunk or not, but if you're spending your time arguing whether something is steampunk or Neo-Victorian, well, that's probably the saddest thing I've heard all day. God, go crash a holiday party or something, shit! Per the artist:

Recently I received a note telling me that my disney steampunk should not bear the term "steampunk", because steampunk is first and above all the concept of steam power to achieve modern levels of technology, not corsets, gears and goggles.


I apologize to those I have insulted when I calling my fanarts Steampunk, but personally I love them! Maybe my costumes are not 100% steam power, but they are largely inspired by this style. I believe there are hundreds of ways to interpret a style and my disney fanarts are my interpretation of steampunk.

Look at that -- this poor girl actually had to defend herself from a deluge of "this isn't steampunk, dummy!" comments. That's the problem with the internet -- the people. "Even me?" You're one of the worst! You'll read Geekologie every damn day and still call me a brillo-tit dumpcharmer in the comments. I'm mad as hell and I'm not gonna take it anymore!

Hit the jump for a whole bunch more of the nobody cares about your professional opinion on steampunk. The fact that you even consider your opinion professional already speaks volumes.
