Steampunks at Lincoln

Last weekend, 12/13/14th September was the BIG Steampunk Meet at Lincoln. Three of us met at the do and it was nice to meet Jim + partner, and Ben, for a walk round.

There was lots to photograph and we all probably took hundreds (literally) of pictures - I know I did.

Some of them are posted here for your perusal (and comments) with a few more in my Gallery.



Most were happy to be photographed, although I preferred to either 'join in' and take the shot with others or simply take 'candid' shots on my own, as you will see.


There was a lot of work put into some of the outfits ...



Even the younger set were represented.



And complicated get-ups.



Others just enjoying themselves.



Detail can be important.



Variety is the spice of life.

Hope you enjoyed this lot, sorry it is 'picture heavy'.

David

Looks like the event fullfilled it's promise of being a great spectacle, with some fascinating characters and wonderful costumes. I'm really sorry to have missed it.

Re: Steampunks at Lincoln

Great stuff David.

What a great variety of elaborate costumes and all ages too.

I love No 2, the steam flying machine (see it amused Jim too ) and No 4, the helicopter.

Wish I could have been there.

Thanks for sharing.

AS others have echoed, a wonderful event and soem great captures of the characters. This would never happen in China, I'm afraid to say; I miss this sort of stuff.

Great pictures, Jim, you found some real characters and it's nice to see that Steampucnks are represented by people of all ages.

Well I never knew there was any such thing as a steampunk event (quite like the genre in literature though)! Nice set of photos.
