Wow, what an absolutely amazing steampunk costume! These photos are taken by Josh Reiss, and the costume was made by Mark Becknauld.
Putting the “punk” back in steampunk, indeed.
Mark Becknauldsays that his outfit for the event wasn’t based on any existing characters. Instead, his intention was “keeping the actual punk portion in steampunk.” Becknauld, who reserves his steampunk outfits for special events like San Diego Comic-Con, Bat’s Day and theme parties, made his armband out of brass, leather and copper. It took about two months to complete.
RobotVsBadger.com put together a collection of photos paying tribute to the gorgeous women of the steampunk movement.
Steampunk continues to pick up speed as more and more people catch on to the super sexy sci-fi movement. This post is dedicated to the lovely ladies of the steampunk movement. Some amazing costumes and cool photography. Enjoy!
I posted a few of my favorites below. Head on over to their site to view them all!
Someone should make a sexy steampunk calendar, don’t you think?
He calls this the Doomsday Machine, perhaps aptly named because it’s actually quite dangerous. It’s so dangerous, in fact, that he refuses to explain how it’s made. But apparently it can process sound through lightbulbs, which then gives music a steampunky effect. Interesting!
This is my diy project "steampunk doomsday machine". it is a fuzz /compressor like external effect .But i made it with decent steampunk influences. So with a lot of wood and brass/ copper .At the top you see two 230 volts DC driven lightbulbs . [very dangerous]. Through the burning lightbulbs i send a audio signal . [this trick was contructed with transformers] The 2 brass tubes at the top sides are fatt condensers /elco. And the 2 brass plumbing tubes hold a couple of ldr for the optical compressor.The switches and potentiometers are input/balance, compressor, thru bypass,sence/impedancy,gain/output. I discribe no schematics here on this project, because the whole thing is lethal.
See and hear the Doomsday Machine in action below!
