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

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

It was the next area of the task 2 Faces of Winter, and whereas the very first one, Desolation, had been exactly about the bleakness regarding the period, that one, Polaris, would be to be exactly about the glow for the freshly fallen snow, peaceful, fluffy and cool, reflected either in the poor sunshine, or, on top of that, within the cool moonlight on a night that is starry. Backlink to my motivation board right here

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

After the base ended up being ready ( white cotton sateen, interior boning, bound in silver), it absolutely was time for you to begin in the decoration…

Tinkering with various textures

Layering the bling…

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

First – the bottom, trying out the form

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

Every thing ended up being prepared, but we’d a small issue… no snowfall in England. None forecast either for the following couple weeks, plus it had been the termination of January… Whenever we wanted snowfall we either needed to think beyond your package – or travel.

Luckily my moms and dads reside in Oslo – and snowfall will there be aplenty. After a fast glance at spending plan air companies and timing, we had been scheduled from the trip to Norway. A trip that is short 2 times, must be sufficient to do a shoot, meet up with my folks and possibly do a little skiing!

We arrived on Saturday afternoon along with a brief watch for my moms and dads 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 snow. When you look at the afternoon we simply were able to get enough light to shoot one the main Polaris the results below…

For anyone wondering what footwear ended up being used, 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 sorts of the snowfall had been gone through the woods, but there is still sufficient to snatch some appropriate images within the daylight.

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

Therefore the working work done, we’re able to flake out. Alas, as a result 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 approximately 2.5km and comes to an end at a stop. Extremely convenient, while the train holds you all of the way up – to your begin for the sleigh route! It was fun that is great the drizzle and thick fog: -) a few photos below: -)

After several hours of sledging enjoyable, damp and achy ( the path has plenty of moguls tossing your sledges in 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 within the neighborhood restaurant: -)

The restaurant… very cool

The inner design didn’t disappoint…

Neither did the cake…

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

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