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

This is the next an element of the task 2 Faces of Winter, and whereas the initial one, Desolation, had been exactly about the bleakness for the period, this 1, Polaris, was to be exactly about the glow for the freshly fallen snow, peaceful, fluffy and cold, reflected in a choice of the poor sunlight, or, better yet, into the cool moonlight for a night that is starry.

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 ended up being ready ( white cotton sateen, internal boning, bound in silver), it absolutely was time and energy to begin regarding the decoration…

Tinkering with various textures

Layering the bling…

The headdress had been the next step – and since the coating appears a bit Russian I decided to choose the conventional Russian headdress called kokoshnik tiara.

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 base ended up being trimmed with marabou feathers, and silvery white ferns had been arranged at the top. Then simply added bling, plus 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 of weeks, plus it had been the conclusion of January… we either had to think outside the box – or travel if we wanted snow.

Luckily my moms and dads reside in Oslo – and snowfall can there be aplenty. After 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, should really be adequate to do a shoot, meet up with my people and possibly do a little skiing!

We arrived on Saturday afternoon and polishhearts had a wait that is brief my moms and dads who have been out during the language college, learning Norwegian. We tried it constructively – bought gloves, hat, and began building a sledge out from the snowfall. Into the afternoon we simply was able to catch sufficient light to shoot one an element of the Polaris the results below…

For anybody wondering exactly just just 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 ended up being gone through the trees, but there is still adequate to snatch some appropriate photos into the daylight.

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

In addition to work done, we’re able to flake out. Alas, as a result of climate conditions, no skiing for all of us – but happily sledges remained game! We hired sledges towards the top of among the hills – the route winds down for approximately 2.5km and comes to an end at a place. Extremely convenient, since the train holds you all of the way up – towards the begin associated with the sleigh route! It was fun that is great the drizzle and thick fog: -) a few photos below: -)

After a couple of hours of sledging enjoyable, damp and achy ( the path has lots of moguls throwing your sledges to the atmosphere – and quite often you land okay in the sledges, often 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 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 placing us up for the weekend: -)
