I have some photos to post today! Finally the weather conditions were perfect for photographing my Christmas Angel costume. My dad and I went to a Christmas tree farm in December and photographed it, but it was so bright out (even on an overcast day) that you couldn’t tell the dress had lights in it! And the lights are the key feature of this dress. So I decided that the only good environment for photographing it was a stormy, snowy day.
We’ve had a few of those in NY this week. Last week we got thirty inches which was a little bit too much snow to walk about in a ball gown. Luckily a lot of it has melted and iced over, which makes it easier to wade through.
Yesterday we got six hours of icy rain – but just before the light faded it turned to gorgeous snow. Which led to a mad dash of trying to put on makeup, a wig, and a huge dress is less than half an hour. I succeeded…kind of! I had lipstick all over my teeth and part of the dress was stuck in the waistband and the petticoat looks lopsided, but we did get some photos before it got dark!
I think the photos I took inside are a better representation of what this costume looks like, but these ones certainly have a nicer backdrop and atmosphere!
Big thanks to my dad for taking the pictures for me!
Thanks for reading!
