Snowy Sneak Peek

Here's a few snaps from the Snow Queen photoshoot! We went to Hämeenlinna to find some snow and to have cool backgrounds. Aulanko and the kaupunginpuisto have cool follies, faux ruins that were constructed to beautify the parks in the past. Click here for my first pictures of the Snow Queen when the outfit was only coming together.


It took three people to get me up there and get my shoes on ;D These are of the first set we took, when my crown was still going strong. It fell off and broke after some time, I guess hot glue is not one of the recommended materials to use for crowns ;P



The stairs lead to a tower of the Graniittilinna at Aulanko. It was super bright in the sun, but the white clothing really works against the dark stone.


The shrug is by Artifice Clothing, everything else (well, except the boots) is made or modified by me. The corset started it's life as a regular off-the-rack overbust, which I traded for an old black underbust with a friend. I bought some lace appliques, rhinestones and tulle and glues/sewed it all to the corset. The skirt used on be a pair of Ikea curtains and there's one extra curtains tied on top of the skirt and one was made into the sleeves.


On top of the tower the wind was excellent for letting the sleeves flow around me. There was also a lovely puddle through which I dragged my hems, but luckily they dried fast in the wind!


The last shots were done with some coloured powder Helena, the photographer, had made. It's light pink and floats around. It was a bit hard to work with, but maybe there were a few usable shots, and if not, we will try again with more experience.

It was great to spend a Monday away from the office, on Tuesday the game I've been working for is released and it's gonna be a busy day! So winding down on Monday is very much needed.

  4. Älyttömän hyvän näköstä. Just sen näköstä, että tekee melkein mieli skipata illan Igda, ja sen sijaan viettää ilta kotona ompelukoneen ääressä ähräämässä.

    1. Kiitos! Ompelukoneet on pop, paitsi sillon kun ne vetää häröpallokohtauksen alalangan kanssa ;D Mä uhkailen omaani käyttämällä ne vieressä kangasliimaa, se tietää ettei ole korvaamaton niin pysyy kurissa. Täytyy taas joku kerta hilautua Helsingin Igdaan, siellä on aina niin kivaa!

  6. Oijoi, hieno kuvauspaikka. Nuo on lapsesta saakka kutkuttaneet mun mielikuvitusta ja vieläkin :). Aulangolla kun on vielä niitä kaikenmaailman huvimajoja, torni, joutsenlampi sun muuta.

    1. Aulanko on kyllä upea! Mä olin viimeksi käynyt siellä tooooosi monta vuotta sitten, mutta edelleen muistin tekorauniot, ne on niin upeita ja Suomessa tosi uniikkeja! Rakastan myös Pälkäneen rauniokirkkoa (Pälkäne, ainoita paikkakuntia jossa jengi on niin ulalla että jättävät vanhan kirkon raunioitumaan kun saavat uuden ;D) ja teen reissuja katsomaan kalliomaalauksia!
