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

It was the next an element of the task 2 Faces of Winter, and whereas the initial 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 in a choice of the poor sunlight, or, on top of that, into the cool moonlight for 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 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 from the decoration…

Tinkering with various textures

Layering the bling…

The headdress had been 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 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 ended up being trimmed with marabou feathers, and silvery ferns that are white arranged on the top. Then simply added bling, in addition to strings of pearls…

Every thing had been ready, but we’d a problem that is official site slight no snowfall in England. None forecast either for the following couple of weeks, and it also had been the finish of January… Whenever we desired snowfall we either needed to think beyond your box – or travel.

Luckily my moms and dads reside in Oslo – and snow will there be aplenty. After a look that is quick spending plan air companies and timing, we had been scheduled regarding the trip to Norway. A trip that is short 2 times, is adequate to execute a shoot, meet up with my people and perhaps do a little skiing!

We arrived on Saturday afternoon together with a brief watch for my moms and dads have been away during the language college, learning Norwegian. We used it constructively – bought gloves, cap, and started building a sledge out 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 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 absolutely was raining a little and all sorts of the snowfall ended up being gone through the woods, but there clearly was still sufficient to snatch some appropriate photos within the daylight.

Dusk norwegian daylight is sort of more of a UK…

Plus the working task done, we’re able to flake out. Alas, because of the climate, no skiing for people – but fortunately sledges remained game! We hired sledges towards the top of one of several hills – the route winds down for around 2.5km and comes to an end at a place. Extremely convenient, while the train holds you all the way up – to your begin of this 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 lots of moguls tossing your sledges in to the atmosphere – and often you land okay from the sledges, often you don’t… impressive bruises were gained thus…) we got hot and soothed copious amounts to our pains of tea and dessert within the regional restaurant: -)

The restaurant… very cool

The inner design did not disappoint…

Neither did the cake…

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

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