Steampunk is a subgenre that incorporates a style of design and fashion combining historical elements of the 19th-century with anachronistic technological features inspired by science fiction.
In Luxembourg you can join one of the most huge Steampunk events: Anno 1900 - Steampunk Convention Luxembourg. Lynn Schockmel got invited to this beautiful event since their first launching in 2011 to create Steampunk inspired body paints in front of the public.
Below you can see all art works from the most recent to the very first body paint I've done during this amazing event:

Brave women and men also members of the association ALPADOC decided recently to get painted by Lynn Schockmel to express their pain and emotions thru Art.
In Luxembourg the Halloween tradition and celebration is becoming increasingly popular in the last few years. The costumes and makeups are usually modeled after supernatural figures such as vampires, monsters, ghosts, skeletons, witches, and devils.
Halloween is always a very busy and successful day for Lynn Schockmel. Each year she enjoys creating zombies, creatures and all that ugly stuff. Her makeup booth is installed at the bar "Rock Box" where she paints each stuff member of the COM1 group bars in the Rives de Clausen. Here is a selection of some creations:
Lynn Schockmel did commercial Bodypaintings on a female and male model for JIMS Fitness Center in Beggen. Afterwards the models were walking in their painted promotional clothes in the streets of Luxembourg City to distribute flyers of the fitness center. It's an interesting social experience to observe the reactions of the people walking by. Some people don't notice the models being painted, some are surprised and look closer and others are impressed or even shocked.
Air TV came to Lynn Schockmel's makeup and bodypainting studio to talk about her passion and to watch her live painting a model.
Model: Harlay Brétéché

Lynn Schockmel and her team are often looking for models for a variety of events, creative body art projects or fine art photography projects that might include full or partial body paints, face paints or creative makeup.
Commercial paid projects and public shows require stricter criteria in terms of body types, experience and skills.
Depending on the theme of our fine art projects we might be looking for any body type, male or female, who are interested in participating in this amazing and unique art form.
We are also interested in people with unique or exotic physical characteristics like different skin types, twins, dreadlocks... or special skills like ballet dancing, gymnastic, fire-breather and more.
