Scary History

It’s that time of the year again.
When people goes crazy splurging on unnecessary things, clothes and decoration for the homes.
Of course I’m talking about – Halloween!

This year I decided to try something I’ve never done before – A Halloween photoshoot.
And since I couldn’t decide which one of my costumes I would use, I decided to use all of them…
No not really, but there where a lot.

The whole idea started when “American Duchess” announced her Instagram photo contest.
I started collecting inspiration pictures to decide what kind of picture I wanted for the competition – and from there it grew.
I decided there was no way I could model all the outfits I wanted to photograph, so I put a questions for models out on my private facebook – And you guessed it – I got lots of answers.

So this weekend I packed all my carefully ironed, sorted and packed dresses (shoes, corsets, hats, jewelry ect) in the car on top of the box holding all my Halloween decoration and masquerade make-up, and drew to work.
Yes, Since thee was now about 10 of us to get styled, dressed and photographed, I’ve decided to hold the photoshoot at the theater. And the fact that I had access to lighting, smoke machine and a wonderful huge “Dollhouse” as a backdrop really made the decision easy.

I will show you the pictures as soon as they are ready – just need to do some sorting, editing and finishing first.

In the meantime here are some of my inspiration pics:

    • Oh, Thank you so much for you´r concern! (blinking away trears of movment/sentiment :-)).
      I´m Ok, but due to some recent change in my life I´m exhausted and in need of a break from just about eveything.
      I do plan to continue both sewing and bloging but it will have to take the backwather for a while.
      Thanks again for your kind words, and you´r thoughts.
