By beckas  
A few months ago I started collecting the pieces for a steampunk style shoot. I will be the first to admit that I am not an "arts and crafts" type of person, so it took a couple of glasses of wine and a hot glue gun to get through the clockwork portion of the outfit. So this is a custom hat band, belt, and goggles by "yours truly".

Aye, the things that I will do for a photoshoot! Smile

The model is Virginia Petrucci. She was quite happy to wear this outfit. I think that she wants to borrow it for next Halloween, LOL.

I appreciate the effort you have gone to, to achieve your vision,
which you have executed superbly. lovely lighting, a great colour palette and very nice composition. I've never heard of steam-punk but its a great look, has a kind of surreal look to it.
My only niggle, and its purely personal, I find the signature distracting and wonder what its purpose is.
Well done on the awards.

Thanks! Do you mean to tell me that I could have borrowed the props from you, as opposed to making them? That would have saved me a whole lot of trouble and I might still have that bottle of wine if I had! Wink

Well I'm not sure about "borrowed" lol Maybe an EPZ discount Tongue

You wouldn't have had the satisfaction of creating your own and by the way that hat is a stroke of genius.

If you are anything like me the wine would not have survived long one way or another

Wow, wow, wow!

I headed out very early for the airport this morning for the start of a holiday, but I took a quick look at my BlackBerry and noticed quite a few e-mail notifications for UA's on this image. Then I read an e-mail from an EPZer who had e-mailed to congratulate me for the POTW. Quite frankly, I had a hard time believing that this image made POTW, but now I can see it for myself. Thank you so much Pete for the POTW award! I can't begin to express how incredibly happy I felt after reading the news. I am truly humbled and honoured.

So, after a five and a half hour plane ride today and spending most of my day at the airport, seeing all of your UA's and comments has made this a perfect day for me. I am still so overwhelmed by it all. Thank you all so much for your UA's and thank you for the encouraging comments!

I will be in Hawaii this week and will probably will not be online very often, but I have scheduled three shoots for while I am here so I will hopefully have an image or two to post from this trip.

Aloha and thanks again to everyone. It truly is such an honour and it gives me a reason to celebrate. Smile
The colours in the background really shine. They caught my eye and I really love the outfit! Grin well done for winning
