Steampunk is the aesthetic of an alternate Age of Steam, where fantastic technology straight out of HG Wells and Jules Verne is commonplace, and wonders beyond imagining are possible.
This stunning seductress, straight out of the pages of any number of steampunk opuses, is courtesy Russian cosplayer Irina Pirozhnikova and photog Aleksey Vododokhov.
A mischievous grin, with the promise of a whirlwind romance and a broken heart.
Waiting for trouble at the station.
Two guns. All trouble.
Pirozhnikova, otherwise known as Captain Irachka, can also be found on Facebook.
