Dunedin Steampunk enthusiast Peter Fleury's styling included goggles, a top hat and a heavily waxed moustache.
The uniform the 57-year-old wore was for escorting tourists on intrepid lunar safaris, he said.
"To take paying customers to the moon and back."
Kirsty Lewis-Bleakley, from Dunedin Steampunk group the Gasworks Guild of Gadgeteers, said the ball was a sellout and 110 people attended.
Steampunk was how Victorians believed people would be living in the future, she said.
"Tomorrow, as it used to be."
However, the dress code was open to interpretation and could often be Gothic or post-apocalyptic, she said.
The ball was planned to go to the early hours this morning with live music, dancing, supper and a fashion show.
The informal fashion promenade allowed people to flaunt their fashion for prizes, she said.
