A Damsel in This Dress. 2 Faces of Winter: Polaris
This is the next area of the project 2 Faces of Winter, and whereas the very first one, Desolation, ended up being exactly about the bleakness for the period, this 1, Polaris, would be to be exactly about the glow for the freshly fallen snow, peaceful, fluffy and cool, reflected either in the poor sunlight, or, better yet, when you look at the cool moonlight for a starry evening.

I experienced a dress, all in feathers, and a coat that is bridal our Winter Bride collection lat year – but needed a suitable wintery corset and headdress to go with them.
Once the base had been ready ( white cotton sateen, interior boning, bound in silver), it absolutely was time for you to begin regarding the decoration…
Tinkering with various textures
Layering the bling…
The headdress had been the next thing – and since the coating appears a bit Russian I decided to choose the conventional Russian headdress called tiara that is kokoshnik.
First – the bottom, tinkering with 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 beds base had been trimmed with marabou feathers, and silvery ferns that are white 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 snow in England. None forecast either for the following couple weeks, plus it had been the termination of January… we either had to think outside the box – or travel if we wanted snow.
Happily my parents are now living in Oslo – and snowfall will there be aplenty. After a fast have a look at spending plan air companies and timing, we had been booked regarding the journey to Norway. A trip that is short 2 times, must be adequate to perform a shoot, meet up with my people and possibly do a little skiing!
We arrived on Saturday afternoon together with a wait that is brief my moms and dads have been away during the language college, learning Norwegian. We tried it constructively – bought gloves, cap, and began making a sledge from the snowfall. Within the afternoon we simply been able to get sufficient light to shoot one area of the Polaris the results below…
For anyone wondering exactly just what footwear had been utilized, wonder no longer….
The clear answer is – reasonable footwear. ??
The morning that is next a modification of weather – thaw: -( it absolutely was raining a little and all sorts of the snowfall ended up being gone through the woods, but there is still adequate to snatch some appropriate images into 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 climate conditions, no skiing for all of us polish hearts card game – but luckily sledges remained game! We hired sledges near the top of one of several mountains – the route winds down for approximately 2.5km and concludes at a stop. Really convenient, since 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 fun, damp and achy ( the path has plenty of moguls throwing your sledges in to the air – and quite 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 when you look at the regional restaurant: -)
The restaurant… very cool
The inner design did not disappoint…
Neither did the cake…
Next early morning it had been time and energy to reunite home – tired, bruised, but satisfied with the images! ??
Thanks to my parents for placing us up for the weekend: -)
