Steampunk Photoshoot Opportunity

If you are not attending the Central Regional Convention in Whanganui you are welcome to attend the Steampunk Express event at the Glenbrook Vintage Railway, Waiuku on Saturday 29th September and mingle with the Auckland steampunk fraternity and photograph them against the backdrop of the GVR steam train, the GVR station or their workshops and yards. This is a private event and will run from 9.00am to 3.00 pm.


Steampunkers go to a huge amount of effort to create their costumes and props and love to have their photos taken and are very happy to try out any creative ideas you may have. By holding this event at Glenbrook, you have the station, operating steam train, carriages and the extensive workshops available that will add additional impact. Two makeup artists on site will ensure the women are looking wonderful!


A feature of the day is the train ride at 1.30 from the station to the workshops and return. Beware: some steampunkers are armed and may attempt a hold up (but they are kind enough to pause for a photo). As a bonus check out the railway workshops and yards which are full of interesting artefacts. This day provides plenty of material for future competitions: Portraits, abandoned, creative and landscape.


The fee to cover the the Glenbrook site, the train and makeup artists is $40 payable on arrival at the site.  Registration for this event will be on arrival.
