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

This is the next an element of the task 2 Faces of Winter, and whereas the very first one, Desolation, ended up being exactly about the bleakness associated with the period, that one, Polaris, was to be exactly about the glow for the freshly fallen snow, peaceful, fluffy and cold, reflected in a choice of the poor sunlight, or, on top of that, within the cool moonlight for a starry evening. Backlink to my motivation board right here

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

When the base ended up being ready ( white cotton sateen, interior boning, bound in silver), it absolutely was time and energy to begin regarding the decoration…

Trying out various textures

Layering the bling…

The headdress ended up being the next thing – and because the coat appears a bit Russian I decided to go with the traditional Russian headdress called kokoshnik tiara.

First – the bottom, trying out the design

It, added attachment points and covered everything in white linen first, then silk when I was happy with the shape, i stabilized. The bottom ended up being trimmed with marabou feathers, and silvery white ferns had been arranged at the top. Then simply added bling, and also the strings of pearls…

Every thing had been prepared, but we’d a problem that is slight no snowfall in England. None forecast either for the following couple weeks, plus it had been the finish of January… Whenever we wanted snowfall we either needed to think away from package – or travel.

Happily my parents are now living in Oslo – and snowfall can there be aplenty. After a look that is quick spending plan air companies and timing, we had been booked in the trip to Norway. A trip that is short 2 times, should always be sufficient to execute a shoot, catch up with my folks and possibly do a little skiing!

We arrived on Saturday afternoon together with a wait that is brief my parents who had been away during the language college, learning Norwegian. We tried it constructively – bought gloves, cap, and began building a sledge out from the snowfall. Into the afternoon we simply was able to get sufficient light to shoot one an element of the Polaris the results below…

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

The clear answer is – reasonable footwear. ??

The next early morning brought a modification of weather – thaw: -( it was raining a little and all sorts of the snowfall had been gone through the woods, but there is still sufficient to snatch some appropriate images when you look at the daylight.

Norwegian daylight is kind of a lot more of a British dusk…

As well as the task done, we’re able to flake out. Alas, as a result of climate, no skiing for people – but happily 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, while the train holds you all of the way up – to your beginning of the sleigh route! It was fun that is great the drizzle and thick fog: -) a few pictures below: -)

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

The restaurant… very cool

The inner design didn’t disappoint…

Neither did the cake…

Next early morning it absolutely was time for you to reunite home – tired, bruised, but satisfied with the images! ??

Thank you to my moms and dads for placing us up for the weekend: -)
