Princess for a Day

Just quickly stopping by to wish everyone a merry Christmas, share some recent, slightly Christmassy photo work with you and avail myself of my new-found “back to the roots”-spirit!

I took these pictures of my friend Michelle as part of her Birthday present: a baroque photo shoot. Quite some time ago, she told me that she’d once like to wear one of those 17th/18th century dresses, with hoop skirts and all the frills, so I felt called to make that wish come true. Fortunately, my godmother started working at the Theatre Constance this year and was able to borrow a couple of costumes (pointer: this is not the only outfit we shot that day) from their costume stock for us. Although we didn’t get to photograph this green velvet mass outside, since it was too heavy for Michelle to stand up wearing it, we managed to put an artsy touch on it by deconstructing the traditional dress code towards the end of the shoot. Thanks for a – I’d say well-spent – Sunday filled with laughter and hoop skirt tugging, Michelle!

  • What a gorgeous photo shoot, Lary! And also, you’re the sweetest friend ever. Michelle looked like she had a blast. I love the green princess costume, so very theatrical and fun! I hope your Christmas was good and your 2017 is starting on a positive note no matter what! :D x

    • Thank you!! (as much for the compliment about the photo shoot as for telling me I’m a sweet friend, haha!)
      When she put the dress on and wasn’t devoured by the wig (which is absolutely awesome, btw) yet, I thought she looked like Fiona from Shrek for a second!
      Hopefully, your 2017 has been great so far, too!! :D

      Stay fash!
