Visitors to the Krewe of Sea SaveYours immediately can tell this is a different kind of masquerading pirates.

The costumes they sport vary in style, but they all reflect the spirit of an action-seeking adventurer or air warrior powered by steam. Imagine Jules Verne, Captain Nemo meets RocketMan and Indiana Jones all rolled into one

See, that's different.
