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 initial one, Desolation, ended up being exactly about the bleakness for the period, that one, Polaris, was to be exactly about the glow for the freshly fallen snow, peaceful, fluffy and cool, reflected either in the poor sunlight, or, on top of that, when you look at the cold moonlight for a starry evening.

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

When the base had been ready ( white cotton sateen, interior boning, bound in silver), it had been time and energy to begin regarding the decoration…

Trying out various textures

Layering the bling…

The headdress had been the next thing – and because the layer appears a little Russian I decided to opt for the conventional Russian headdress called tiara that is kokoshnik.

First – the bottom, tinkering with the form

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 white ferns had been arranged on the top. Then simply added bling, while 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… If we desired snowfall we either had to think beyond your package – or travel.

Luckily my parents are now living in Oslo – and snow will there be aplenty. After having a look that is 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 adequate to do a shoot, meet up with my people and perhaps 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 school, studying Norwegian. We tried it constructively – bought gloves, hat, and started creating a sledge out from the snowfall. When you look at the we just managed to catch enough light to shoot one part of the Polaris the results below afternoon…

For anyone wondering exactly 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 had been raining a little and all sorts of the snowfall had been gone from the woods, but there is still sufficient to snatch some proper images into the daylight.

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

Plus the work done, we’re able to flake out. Alas, because 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 around 2.5km and comes to an end at a stop. Extremely convenient, because the train holds you all of the way up – towards the begin regarding the sleigh route! It was great enjoyable despite the drizzle and thick fog: -) a few pictures below: -)

After a couple of hours of sledging enjoyable, damp and achy ( the path has lots of moguls tossing your sledges in to the atmosphere – and quite often you land ok in the sledges, sometimes you don’t… impressive bruises had been gained thus…) we got hot and soothed our problems with copious quantities of tea and dessert into the neighborhood restaurant: -)

The restaurant… very cool

The inside 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 placing us up for the weekend: -)
