Steampunk pictures taken at the Charles River Museum of Industry and Innovation on Halloween, 2011. (17 pictures)

The Charles River Museum of Industry and Inovation had a Halloween event to celebrate the opening of their new exhibit, Steampunk Form and Fashion-II, so I deciced to make a new disguised camera.

I started with a drug store plastic pumpkin, and used an xacto-knife to cut an opening for my E-P2's 14-150mm lens to stick through where the nose used to be. I then took one pane out of a candle lantern I got from a Hallmark store so I could thread the flash cable through, and put in my FL-36 flash, which barely fit. The latern fit on top of the pumpkin, almost as if was made for it.

One of the hazards of going with a disguised camera, is a lot of the pictures you take is that of people taking your camera.

Here are some pictures of the pumpkin camera. You can see more build pictures here.
