It might be possible to modify a commercially made hotshoe extension cable...

i was thinking of a polystyrene plate with selfmade connections
Use a stronger plastic, but sure. You could use small brass finishing nails as contacts.

what kind of plastic do you suggest?
i thought ps was going to be strong enough if i make another brace thats sits on the lens
From the Nikon D3100 page's tech tab (under Accessory Shoe) : ISO 518 hot-shoe with sync and ata contacts and safety lock. Wiki page for that will show you the pinout.
