Just an ordinary Sunday stroll with Hanna, a sweet friend of mine. Cruising in the time machine and all that, something that all normal folks do on Sundays. ;)
Well actually we just took some pictures on this little wooden bridge by the riverside and later on we took a walk in the city. For a moment we pretended to be travellers lost in time (you know, gasping at auto vehicles, modern people and such) and somehow I felt so deeply alive. At some point I laughed so hard that I almost cracked a rib in that tight corset of mine, in other words we had the most wonderful day!
The hat is vintage, the resin skull from MoonRavenDesigns, the brooch from Hyde's Vice, the shirt is Princess Coldheart by Lip Service and strangely enough, the skirt was made by me! And I'm pretty proud of it! I had no instructions, patterns or expertise in this kind of clothing, but all you really need is a reference picture, an ounce of enthusiasm, some conception of skirt's patterns, logic and a great deal of fabric. But confidence is the main ingredient in the process, anything is possible if you trust your own skills in something.
(Except maybe with flying, I really wouldn't recommend jumping off high buildings just because you believe you can fly.)
Frankly my dears, I wish I could dress up like this every day, but the modern world and time schedule is too difficult and hasty for this kind of attire. And I like my more modern style way too much to let it go for good, so this is more like fantasy, an ideal of how I could look like. For a long time I've thought that I'll start veiling myself with Victorian outfits more when I'm older, somewhere between 30-40, but now I think I might do it occasionally at this age too! You never know how much time you have in this life, so planning too far in the future is altogether silly.
And here's another silly thing; little giddy gif animation to show the mood of the day! I hear the call of the train again and I probably won't be back until next week, so I wish you all a lovely weekend!
