I am new to steampunk but did tell my daughter about the fabulous gear I saw at Lincoln Castle. She now wants a steampunk wedding. At last I now have the excuse I need to get a full outfit. I was dreading buying a new suit but now can't wait to get some great gear!

All we have to do now is start planning Smiley

A steampunk wedding just screams out for a period photographer complete with a plate camera....

On a related note, this gives me an idea for a SteamPunk mod.

Make a period camera enclosure that holds and operates a modern camera inside.

Thus it looks old-timey, but works on the new-tech that gets the job done.

Is there a colour scheme / pallet you have to stick to?

Most "wedding suits" already look quite Steampunk as they are based around Victorian / Edwardian designs.

Be grateful that as best man you at least won't have to wear a corset (probably)!  My advice, for what it is worth, is to ask the bride and groom what sort of look they want and take it from there.

I hope to give this a go at some point -I have a small bellows-style camera body (circa 1920s or 30s) that I would like to integrate with a old digital model. The fact I haven't done so yet is due to the fact I want to ascertain how to do this without any permanent modifications to the vintage piece.

I have to agree - usually the best man follows the groom's lead, so what planned there probably needs to be clarified.

Yours,
Miranda.

It might be as easy as find out what the colors are, get a 3 piece suit of a victorian-compatible style that matches and add a few Steampunk gadgets ( a cane, goggles, or techno-wrist band or arm/leg brace) and you're in the club

Hopefully we're not side-tracking the thread.  I see the camera-shell idea as a way to embed a steampunk photographer so they stay in character, but you get the fancy photos you'll want.

For Miranda's old camera body, consider instead using that as a model to make your shell.  Thus, you don't damage the antique, but use it as a design guide for the prop.

On aspect I considered, is the old timey cameras had that cloth drape over the back that the photographer hunched under to take the shot.  This means you can hide the entire real camera in there with an open back, so you can get to it's controls. Just mount the camera near the front of the box, in alignment with the external aperture, and the back of the box is empty for you to see the LCD screen and stick your hand in there to take the shot (or push the button if you have a quick-release rigged up)
