A Damsel in This Dress. 2 Faces of Winter: Polaris

A Damsel in This Dress. 2 Faces of Winter: Polaris

This is the 2nd the main task 2 Faces of Winter, and whereas the very first one, Desolation, had been exactly about the bleakness associated with period, that one, Polaris, was to be exactly about the glow for the freshly fallen snow, peaceful, fluffy and cool, reflected in a choice of the poor sunlight, or, on top of that, into the cold moonlight on a night that is starry. Backlink to my motivation board here

I experienced a dress, all in feathers, and a coat that is bridal our Winter Bride collection lat year – but needed an effective wintery corset and headdress to choose them.

After the base had been ready ( white cotton sateen, interior boning, bound in silver), it had been time for you to start in the decoration…

Trying out different textures

Layering the bling…

The headdress ended up being the next thing – and because the layer appears a little Russian I decided to go with the conventional Russian headdress called tiara that is kokoshnik.

First – the bottom, trying out the form

Once I ended up being satisfied with the design, i stabilized it, included accessory points and covered every thing in white linen first, then silk. The bottom ended up being trimmed with marabou feathers, and silvery white ferns had been arranged at the top. Then simply added bling, as well as the strings of pearls…

Every thing had been ready, but we’d a slight problem… no snowfall in England. None forecast either for the following couple of weeks, and it also had been the conclusion of January… we either had to think outside the box – or travel if we wanted snow.

Happily my moms and dads are now living in Oslo – and snowfall will there be aplenty. After a fast have a look at spending plan airlines and timing, we had been scheduled regarding the journey to Norway. A trip that is short 2 times, should always be sufficient to execute a shoot, meet up with my people and perhaps do a little skiing!

We arrived on Saturday afternoon along with a wait that is brief my moms and dads have been away in the language college, learning Norwegian. We tried it constructively – bought gloves, cap, and began creating a sledge from the snowfall. Within the we just managed to catch enough light to shoot one part of the Polaris the results below afternoon…

For anyone wondering exactly just what footwear ended up being utilized, wonder no longer….

The clear answer is – reasonable footwear. ??

The morning that is next a modification of weather – thaw: -( it had been raining a little and all the snowfall had been gone through the woods, but there is still adequate to snatch some appropriate pictures within the daylight.

Dusk norwegian daylight is sort of more of a UK…

Together with work done, we’re able to flake out. Alas, because of the climate conditions, no skiing for people – but luckily sledges remained game! We hired sledges towards the top of one of many hills – the route winds down for around 2.5km and stops at a stop. Extremely convenient, once the train holds you all of the way up – to your beginning of the sleigh route! It was great enjoyable despite the drizzle and thick fog: -) a few pictures below: -)

After several hours of sledging fun, damp and achy ( the path has plenty of moguls tossing your sledges to the atmosphere – and sometimes you land okay in the sledges, often you don’t… impressive bruises had been gained thus…) we got warm and soothed copious amounts to our pains of tea and dessert into the neighborhood restaurant: -)

The restaurant… very cool

The inner design did not disappoint…

Neither did the cake…

Next it was time to get back home – tired, bruised, but happy with the pictures morning! ??

Thanks to my parents for placing us up for the weekend: -)
