Wiggleskirt: sewn by me from a vintage pattern. Blouse H&M. Gloves from grandma. Hat from Tradera/Ebay.
Sunday me and Kajsa had a little adventure: "Model for a day" at TheStudio. It's a package offered by a studio, they do the make up and then you take a total of 45 pictures in a studio, with three different outfits that you bring along for the day.
It was a nice day in many ways, it was fun to do this with my sister, and I liked posing for the camera =) It was great to discover new angles, I sometimes find that all my pictures are taken from the exact same angle.
Hair is done with hot rolls the same day. Sailor dress from Beyond retro.
On the downside: This was a sort of free event, "we'll do the make up and take pictures, all free, and then if you like some of the pictures you can buy them", which meant there was a ton of people. Everybody had an appointement, but they seemed to have booked everybody at the same time. So hours of waiting in a hot, air-deprived room, people everywhere. Not so glamourous, but quite like I imagine modelling would be. Of course, after spending all that time you'd want to buy at least some of the very expensive photos, and so you'd anyway spend as much on the "free offer" as you would if you'd just booked their usual package. You've just had to wait around a great deal more.
My advice if anyone's interested in one of these events, just book a usual appointement instead.
Nevertheless, it was a fun thing to do, and I'm quite happy with the pictures I bought (yes, I know they failed a bit with the shade of the foundation... ah, well...)
I've had a bit of a shopping spree on Tradera/Ebay (a nice 40s dress for example), check in later this week for pictures =)
P.S. I just realised this post has a very negative tone to it, please excuse me! I had a great time at the photoshoot, and I'm very happy with the photos! The negative tone is mostley due to this cold that I just can't seem to get rid of =( Note to self: don't blog when sick! =)
