New York Steampunk Fairytale Photoshoot

Hello everyone!

Couple on months back my friend [info]dreamshadows and I posted about taking our childhood fairytales and making them into steampunk versions of them photoshoot. After a long time of talking and just coming up with details of how everything will work and where it will take place we came up with the following...

New York Steampunk Fairytale Photoshoot

Date: April 25th 2009 If it just happens to rain on that date and I do hope it does not. We will make May 2nd 2009 the week after the default for the photoshoot.

Time: 10am

Location:  Brooklyn Botanical Garden. It is very beautiful there and I think it will be a perfect place for all the fairytales that we have. here is the link to the Garden if anyone want to see it.   


Fairytale: When we first posted this idea and the response we got we were leaning towards Alice in Wonderland, Cinderella ,Little Red Riding Hood, but because we could not decide which fairytale we really wanted to do. We decided that we will not just do one but just take all the fairytales that we love and combine them.

Now to be able to accommodate all the characters from all the stories (and we know there are a lot of them) we will need to know who wants to attend and we will also need to know what character you would want to be. The reason for this is that the character you choose will be reserved just for you, no one else will be able to have that character but you. The character is reserved by first come first serve method. Post the character you want to be and that you will be coming I will update this post with the reservation to make sure people see what is taken and what is not. When you choose the character and have an outfit for it, it has to be steampunk and has to resemble the character in some way.

Considering we do not know how long the photoshoot will last we thought that we will bring some food so we can have a picnic. So if you want as well bring anything that you think you might want to eat you are most welcome.

Photographers of course are also welcome!

I'd really like to take part~! Especially as Alice or a Prince. But since I'm a girl I might make a better Alice ^_^;

I have to check my availability, but this sounds awesome and I'd love to do it! I'm leaning towards the Cheshire Cat but I don't want to claim anything until I know if I can make it or not.
Mar. 2nd, 2009 03:20 am (UTC)
I'm working on a Queen of Hearts steampunk costume RIGHT NOW but I don't think it will be done in time =( I may want to come out and take pictures anyways though, if I can make it - sounds like fun!
Mar. 2nd, 2009 03:47 am (UTC)
Wow This sounds like do much fun! Great idea!
Mar. 2nd, 2009 03:49 am (UTC)
I with loch_nessie and I was working on Cheshire Cat for myself.
I think we'll be able to get it done in time.
thatjazz, I think (especially with the Cheshire Cat), multiple interpretation shouldn't be a problem, but I'll let organizers make that call.

Ya, he convinced me I can finish it in time - or at least, get it good enough for photos - so I'll do a Queen of Hearts

Oh! this sounds delightfully fun!

This is great! Now I am even more excited about this photoshoot than I was before! I already made the list for all the possible characters to be taken like -Alice and the Queen of Hearts- As for multiple interpretation situation, We are trying to stay away from that and as was said in the post we want to try not to do that and reserve a one character per person. So please give me a day to sort things out a bit.^^

My wife is a big fan of floral photography and loves botanical gardens. We visited the Montreal botanical gardens in late May last year and there wasn't very much in bloom yet. Of course, Brooklyn is a bit farther south and much closer to the ocean, but are you sure the flowers are going to cooperate with your schedule? (Best photos we ever got were in Halifax, NS in early August)

Just a fleeting thought as I'm typing this post...a steampunk photoshoot on the Brooklyn Bridge.

Wow! What a fantastic idea! I would love to do a Steampunk Snow White or Sleeping Beauty! But I live in Australia, so I won't be making it to your picnic :P But it does give me some interesting Steamy ideas!

that's a wonderful idea. Sadly, I'm too far. *sighs* If I could have gone, I would have been the woodsmanwoman.

*really just wants the excuse for a giant steam powered axe*
Mar. 2nd, 2009 11:28 pm (UTC)
How far are you? Its always the steam powered axe that gets to people!^^

This sounds like an awesome idea, but I must note that while traditional fairy tales are in the public domain, Lumiere is a Disney character not original to the tale and they're bastards about copyright infringement. I don't know if you were planning on showing or selling the pics, but I thought I'd give you a heads-up.
Mar. 2nd, 2009 04:06 pm (UTC)
I know Lumiere in a Disney character. However, the person who is doing it loves the him as a character so its okay because we are not plannig on selling these pictures.
