Miss Horse

These pictures are from a picnic at Viikinsaari on Saturday! The weather was great, sunny enough to be warm but with a light breeze from the lake to keep people cool.

First some oh-so-artsy posing on a rock in the lake...


I'm wearing a dress by Tiina of Rogue clothing, with a print designed by me. It's a short dress and I wanted something longer for the day, so I just put a skirt on top of the dress and added a peplum belt there too. The long flowing skirt is really great for staying cool on a hot day.




And then comes the traditional horse mask that appears in each Lumous! I added sunglasses on top, mainly because I had no other place to put them and it was tricky to balance yourself on the rock when you can't see anything ;D


With Mikko, master of the horses!

The picnic is not part of the official Lumous program, but for many years people have still gone out to chill at Viikinsaari. There used to be Die Dunkle Seereise on Saturday, where drunken goths were packed on a boat and cruised on the lake drinking wine for a few hours. The picnic is sort of a remnant of that, because the same boat now goes to Viikinsaari. On some years it's been rainy, but this year the sunshine was great!
