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

It was the 2nd an element of the task 2 Faces of Winter, and whereas the very first one, Desolation, had been exactly about the bleakness of this period, this 1, Polaris, was to be exactly about the glow for the freshly fallen snow, peaceful, fluffy and cool, reflected in a choice of the poor sunshine, or, better yet, within the cool moonlight on a night that is starry.

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.

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 had been the next thing – and since the layer appears a little Russian I decided to go with the conventional Russian headdress called kokoshnik tiara.

First – the bottom, tinkering with the form

Whenever I had been pleased with the design, i stabilized it, included accessory points and covered every thing in white linen first, then silk. The beds base had been 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 problem that is slight no snowfall in England. None forecast either for the following couple of weeks, and it also had been the termination of January… Whenever we desired snowfall we either had to think beyond your field – or travel.

Happily my moms and dads reside in Oslo – and snowfall will there be aplenty. After having a look that is marriagemindedpeoplemeet price quick spending plan air companies and timing, we had been scheduled regarding the journey to Norway. A trip that is short 2 times, must certanly be sufficient to execute a shoot, meet up with my people and possibly do a little skiing!

We arrived on Saturday afternoon and had a brief watch for my moms and dads have been out during the language school, studying Norwegian. We tried it constructively – bought gloves, cap, and began creating a sledge out from the snowfall. When you look at the afternoon we simply been able to get sufficient light to shoot one part of the Polaris the results below…

For anybody wondering just exactly what footwear had been utilized, wonder no longer….

The clear answer is – reasonable footwear. ??

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

Dusk norwegian daylight is sort of more of a UK…

Therefore the working task 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 among the hills – the route winds down for approximately 2.5km and finishes at a stop. Extremely convenient, since 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 photos below: -)

After several hours of sledging enjoyable, damp and achy ( the route has lots of moguls tossing your sledges to the atmosphere – and often you land okay regarding the sledges, often you don’t… impressive bruises had been gained thus…) we got hot and soothed our problems with copious amounts of tea and dessert within the regional restaurant: -)

The restaurant… very cool

The inside design didn’t disappoint…

Neither did the cake…

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

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