    You could try taking the bottom part off a pair of binoculars and gluing it to a lensboard. If you have a focal plane shutter, you're good to go. I don't know if all would have great swirly stuff, but it's cheap enough to try.

    I'm dreaming of a fast, Brass, and French model with nice engraved cursive writing already expertly mounted on a black Graphic board with no fuss, no muss...
    You can probably find a nice Cinephor for $50, then have it engraved for another $50. I'm not sure what having it brass plated will run...

    Maybe a rental? This is just a phase, right?

    What's next, a wooden camera for your soon-to-be "vintage lens collection"?

    Magnifying lenses from Walmart or Target might give the desired "look". I saw some very interesting work high school kids did with this approach using a view camera.

    Try a 67mm +2 and +3 close-up lens stacked on top of each other.

    Looking for something cheap and easy to play with on a 4x5 Speed, cult $$$ lenses need not apply.
