Geist Goggles

I’ve finished off the steampunk goggles now.   I’ve added a light in the goggles and (not pictured) the fan on the power plant now moves.

Today was spent taking pics of my brother in full steampunk get-up.

There will also be a vid so I’m not quite done with this one, but the build is all finished at least.

Update: having thunk about it for abit I reckon these could be called ‘Geist Goggles’, for spotting specters, spooks and spirits ;0)

Here’s a photoset on Flickr.


Been having a go at adding various photo effects to images in preparation for taking some pics of the steampunk goggles  this weekend.  I don’t have much of a background to shoot against so I figured trying to stylise some of the images might be a good bet.

I’ve also been trawling for various steampunk images.  Ophelias Overdose on Deviant Art has some good ones.  I particularly like this one.  My brother isn’t quite that attractive unfortunately, but we’ll do our best ;0)
