Steampunk Travellers Collection






  A few pics from our first steampunk collection, shot last autumn, at the Milton Keyness Museum. The collection was a first , but certainly not the last forray into the exotic world of Steampunk, and this one was inspired by  the notion of travel and exploration, plus  some great music from the famous steampunk group, Abney Park.

 I have published the articles on the inspirations and creation of the collection on The Wardrobe Unlockd site (, so will keep this entry here just to the day of the shoot.


 Our team on the day: 


Jez, from

Paul, from


 Lucas – my husband, amateur snapper:-)

  Stylist: hair and make up :Sarah from

Costumes – me! so prior Attire, though in this case the branch:

 Models, me,  Lizzy (< Cathy Hay and Sarah in her double role as a stylist and a model.

 We had 7 characters to portray so it was a long day, fortunately, the venue, Transpiort Museum Hall was entirely at out own disposal – a perfect location for the shoot, so many thanks to MK museum!
