The other weekend some friends and I had organised to do a little fashion shoot and have a picnic at the Piranda Gardens. It was a little way to travel and we absolutely got lost at least once but it was just a really lovely day out~ Our theme for the day was 'forest girl'. I decided to look back at the little deer coordinate that I had planned some time ago- though in the end I think only the dress and the antlers stayed the same!
In the second portrait you can see the ribbon and pearl details as well as the pink streak I sewed in. I used this technique to try a hot water perm on my wig. I think it came out okay but I probably should have left it to dry naturally instead of fussing with it. The pearl and ribbon chain is usually part of the dress but is detchable and so I decided to pin it to the wig to hide the base of the little antlers.
Here is the test I did on the mannequin in preparation- I was really excited to wear it. It was a lot of fun to dress to a theme with an idea in mind and to try completely restyling a wig. I wish that I had paid a little more attention to how the bow was sitting for the photos but they came out cute anyway, I think. It has a pin (though in this case I threaded a ribbon so it could be tied under the collar without damaging the blouse with its weight) so I should be able to pin it to headband and wear as a ridiculously large headpiece- it actually looked really cute when Thali and I were playing around with it!
Here is a small collection of some of the other photos of the other girls- clockwise from top left; Jordi, Thali, Lizzy and Cortnee. Isn't everyone so elegant? I'll have to take tips from them! ♥
Thanks for looking~
