It's summer and I can be a green pixie!

~ Pagan Princess ~

Last weekend I went to the cosplay convention Desucon 10. On friday I went as my self, wearing my drinking horn, my bottle of fairydust, and a little bit more jewelry than I normally would wear, and my sweet friend Ardis Margrethe Gjerding took these lovely photos :) Hope you like them as much as I do! ^_^

 

On saturday I went as Éowyn (I wonder if I'll ever get proper photos of her...), and on sunday I brought Briar Rose, who was amazingly popular :) That was really fun! Photos to come!

~ Midsummer's Eve, 2015 ~

Last week Midsummer was finally here. My mother, my sister and I went to celebrate my aunt and uncle's Silver Wedding, 25 years of marriage. It took place on the same date, in the same place as 25 years ago - our family garden :)

It was such a nice evening, the weather was amazing, I ate lots of watermelon, and had a great time just how the magical Midsummer Night should be <3

My sister, my mother and me :)

Look at this view!

I spent a lot of time in this playhouse as a child ^_^

Candyyyy <3

There was even a bunny there! :D

I made a raw vegan cake, and when we removed the foil cover,
a dragon revealed itself! :O :D

Hahaha *munchmunch* (I think we kind of look like the 'evil stepsisters' in Cinderella :3)

Priska :p

Kida <3

My aunt and uncle, 
wearing the same as they did on their wedding day 25 years ago!

- Have you been to a Silver Wedding before? :) <3

~ Autumn Faerie ~

In October I went to Desucon: Cosplay & Japan here in Oslo. For the occation I found some of my favourite items from my wardrobe, and put together a Faerie outfit :) You can't see it in the pictures, but I'm also wearing a pair of small fairy wings made by Enchanted Atelier :) For more details about the garments, click the little Lookbook image at the bottom!

~ Return of the Daughter ~

Summer has returned and so have I, and I finally have time and motivation to blog again! :D It's been a long time since I shared some love and light here,
so it's about that time I start again.

With that said I don't really know where to start, but first of all I can say that I just finished the first year of my kindergarten teacher education :) Time really flies!

My life took a very different turn in February and a lot of new people has entered my life since then. Some better than others, but I wouldn't be without the experiences :)

The purpose of this blog (as well as all my other spaces online) is to find likeminded souls and friends, and experiencing that in the real world is a real gift.
I am very grateful :) I am also very grateful for my readers and all my brothers and sisters who want's to co-create a better world :)

Thank you! <3

I'm finally back, and I have quite a few things to share, (like HobbitCon, my Éowyn coat, photoshoots and even the adventures of last summer!) but I also want to know if there is anything special you want me to blog about :D So...

- What would you like to see or read about on this blog? :)

~ Daenerys Targaryen, photographed by Nils Katla ~

I realised I never really shared any photos of my Daenerys from Desucon 9 last summer. The reason is as simple as there are almost no photos, but I have this beautiful shot by photographer by Nils Katla :)

- Do you think I should have a proper photoshoot? :)
Well, I'm going to anway, just don't know when yet ^_^

~ Game of Thrones Season 5, premiere party ~

On saturday, like last year, I got the chance to go to the premiere of the new season of Game of Thrones :) This year it was a much bigger event, and it included a cosplay competition. When I got there, I got to know that I knew all the contestants :D In the end it was Lise as Asha Greyjoy who won, and she really deserved it! <3

It was all great fun, but I enjoyed it more last year when it was more intimate, and finished at a reasonable time (I had to wait for a long time for the bus in the middle of the night, in the rain, this time :# )

Ida as Daenerys and Elise as Ellaria, and me just being my own princess self :3 <3

Hivju and I made friends, like :D Front row, you know ;)

- Have you seen the new episodes? :)

At Desucon Fantasy I met photographer Nils Katla and had a little photoshoot. It's such an honor to be photographed by talented artists, and it gives you motivation to make more cosplays and improve the ones you already have :)

- Have you been photographed at events before? :)

~ Desucon: Fantasy 2015 ~

Last weekend I went to Desucon Fantasy in Oslo!

I've been really bad at taking photos this year, so I've been relying on my friends
and their cameras when it comes to documenting our common adventures :p

As mentioned I made and wore my Arwen cosplay,
and here are some photos by @ardismargrethe :)

I adore Branna's Éowyn, which is the prettiest I've seen <3

Fili: @reiilynn, Éowyn: @brannalaurelin, Arwen: me and Kili: @ingridbeast <3

And last but not least: #elfie!

~ Cosplay: Arwen's requiem cloak ~

I also decided to make Arwen's requiem cloak to go with 
the dream gown in my last entry (even if they don't belong together) :)

My cloak is a lot simpler than the one she wears in the movie, but I am really happy with the result and can't wait to wear it to a proper photoshoot :)

- Have you made a cloak before? :)

~ Cosplay: Arwen's purple dream gown ~

Before I had finished, or even started properly, on Éowyn's travelling coat, I decided to make another cosplay :) Like I mentioned before, I love all of the female characters in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, and I want to make
at least one costume of each character.

As I am a pretty new cosplayer I also wanted to start with one of the more simple costumes. I decided to make Arwen's purple dream gown, which looks really pretty and comfortable. I also realised that I like and look good in soft purple colours, so that was another good reason to make it ;)

And here you have my dress, draped on my mannequins :)

Above: Work in progress. Below: Finished dress.
Different shades in different light :)

And here's a sneak peak of me as Arwen,
that I've worn to both Desucon Fantasy and HobbitCon Drei. :D

As this is not my favourite of Arwen's dresses, I still have another to make ^_^

- What do you think? :)
Which of Arwen's dresses is your favourite?

~ The Hidden Florist ~

Quite some time ago, while I was on my way home from somewhere, I walked by this beautiful florist. It's placed in a little hidden alley, and it looks really magical! Almost like a overgrown house with lots of mirrors and old furniture.
It could easily belong to a witchy herbalist :)

Here are som photos :) What season does this selection of plants remind you of?
I'm not sure myself! A mix of all of them? :)

~ Afternoon Tea ~

Lately I've been obsessing over Tea, Teapots and Tea Parties. Luckily I can nurture that obsession with these lovely photos from last fall :)

In september Ingrid and I went to celebrate Branna's birthday, all dresed lolita inspired for an afternoon tea. We went to The Palm Court Restaurant connected to Grand Hotel in Oslo, where they had the tiniest, (most pricy) food I've ever eaten, and it was so delicious :3

The staff was very service minded and made me exclusive vegan alternatives! It was such a nice day, with beloved friends in a wonderful atmospheric place. 
A once in a lifetime experience :)

~ The Purple Fairy ~

A few weeks ago, my dear and talented friend Alice Bandit came over to do my hair and make up for a photoshoot. We were originally going to have the shoot outside, but as it gets dark very early in the winters in Norway, we had to take the photos indoors instead.

Despite poor lighting, we were very happy with the results :) This was our first collaboration, but it was definitely not the last! :D

~ The Geological Museum ~

A few weeks ago I went to Oslo Geological Museum. It was their last day open, as they are going to renovate for quite some time ahead. I went there by myself, and it was very enjoyable to walk around looking at and photographing different minerals, crystals, rocks and fossils. Even dinosaurs! :)

They had quite the collection, so sorting out the best to share with you
has been a challenge ^_^'

Here it is! Hope you enjoy :) *warning: wall of photos*

I love old, classic museums like this. They have so much soul.

<3

So glorious!

The white looks like mould :o

- Do you like geology?
Have you been to a geological exhibition before? :)

Ps. Funfact: About a year ago I studied geology for a semester and passed the rocks- and minerals exam. Yay me! ^_^

~ Song of Norway (1970) ~

Yesterday I went to the movie theater Cinemateket in Oslo to see the musical "Song of Norway" from 1970. It's a film adaptation of the successful operetta of the same name, and it was an attempt to capitalize on the success of "The Sound of Music", which you clearly can see both in the title and the aestetics of the movie.

The movie tells the story of composer Edward Grieg and his attempts and struggles to develop an authentic Norwegian national music. Grieg is played by Toralv Maurstad, and he came to talk about the movie before the screening yesterday.

I've wanted to see this movie since the first time I heard about it, but it was not quite how I imagined. I turned out to be a very silly movie, and opposed to the music Grieg actually created, this was horrible :3

Through the whole movie, I was like:
"Where is this talent they're talking about all the time?"

Luckily it was visually lovely, with amazing costumes and many great shots :) Unfortunately still photos are very hard to find, and this is about everything I could find. I wish I could show you the extremely National Romantic scenes with people dancing in their Bunads all over the place! <3

- Have you seen this movie? Or similar ones like "The Sound of Music"? :)

Photos from Cinemateket's facebookpage.

~ Éowyn Cosplay, Part 1: The Brooch ~

My Éowyn cosplay has barely started, and the first thing I've made, is the brooch. Above you can se a close up of the one she wears in the movies.

I didn't find any replica anywhere online, so I hade to make something similar myself. I found a cheap bracelet in a store, and when I
got home, I started attacking it! :D

 I flattened it out, got my pliers and started cutting out the middle section. It was a lot harder than I thought, and the muscle in my hand was sore the next day :3

Piece by piece. Almost done now!

When I was done cutting I found a bead, painted it with blue nail polish, and glued it onto the brooch. The only thing left is the safety pin on the back.

And here you can see the finished result! 

I've placed my my brooch on a picture of the real one, to compare it. I'm pretty happy with the result if I can say so myself, and I can't wait
to get started on the dress/coat! :)

- What do you think? Have you made jewelry before? :)

~ Éowyn's Travelling Coat ~

The character I am going to cosplay at HobbitCon is Éowyn :)

Ever since I was a little girl and saw The Lord of the Rings, I've wanted to make
the "Travelling Coat" :)

Now that I'm going to HobbitCon I've finally got a good reason to make it! :D

It's probably my favourite outfit from the movies, but I don't know exactly why. Maybe because you could wear it every day? It's so earthy,
and perfect for a norse elf and Hulder like myself :)

Below you can see the fabrics I'm going to use (hope I've got enough...)

I'm not going to use the same pattern as I used to make this dress, (because I am not happy with it), so today I've been trying to make my own pattern :o Ish... 
This could be interesting! Wish me luck! :D

- Do you like the costumes of The Lord of the Rings? :)
(of course you do :3 )

~ I'm going to HobbitCon! ~

That's right! In April I'm going to HobbitCon in Germany with a big group of friends! :D This means I've got to make cosplays! But who to cosplay? :o
I want to make one of the female characters from the Tolkien universe,
but it's hard to choose as they're all so amazing <3

- Who do you think I should cosplay? :)

I've actually just started on one, but I want to hear your thoughts before I reveal it :) I can say that it's a character from The Lord of the Rings, not The Hobbit, but I think I'll make more than one cosplay so nothing's set in stone ;)

- Are you going to HobbitCon, or any other fascinating events this year? :)

~ Close of Day ~

I'm overwhelmed by the amount of positive, beautiful and thoughtful comments I got on my last entry :) Thank you <3

Today I started on a new creative project, which I'll show you tomorrow :D Tonight I want to share something beautiful. The last day of last year was blessed with a beautiful pale, pink sky, white snow and a rainbow. On that special day I got of the bus before my stop, just so I could gaze at, and absorb the beautiful view :) *sigh*

- Have you seen any beautiful phenomenons lately? Are you enjoying winter? :)

~ Come of Day ~

Hello, sweet friends and fairies :)

A new year has begun, and I've been having a rough start.

Not that anything special has happened, but I'm having troubles with dealing with my emotions. I'm stressed, anxious, nervous and worried about
everything and nothing.

My motivation for anything has been non-existing lately. I have a lot of inspiration, but turning that inspiration into action is just... impossible.
I can't seem to get things done.

Not my hobbies, not my duties. I'm always procrastinating, worsening my own situations, not improving any one elses.

My technophobia is getting worse, and so is the thought of others judging me. So I'm almost not blogging anymore, neither here or on instagram or anywhere else.

So today I want to change that.

Yesterday I had a long and cleansing walk, and both yesterday and today I've been talking to dear friends I haven't seen or talked to in a long time. It has really helped me, and I feel much better :) Friends are the best medicine! <3

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Like last year, I'll make a little list of personal goals for the year, so here it is:

- From now on, I'll blog whenever I want, and about whatever I want :) Earlier I obsessed with posting entries in chronological order, and when I couldn't, I felt like a failure. How silly is that? :p

- I'm going to dance more often! In my living room! :D Move my body, every little piece of it, wake it up and shake it off. Sweat and make my heart rate rise. It's fun, and it's exercise :)

- Last year I wen't "no poo" and this year I'll make my own deodorant.

- I'm going to buy/eat more local and organic, and less imported and processed foods.

- I want to be more creative, and I'm going to sew more!

- Last year I tried cosplaying for the first time, and this year (this month) I'm going to sew my first cosplay from scratch, and generally cosplay more. :D

- I have too much stuff, so I'm generally going to get rid of things.

- But I'm going to buy a new camera! I keep telling myself that everything will magically arrange itself as soon as I get a camera! :3

- I need an income, so I have to get a job!

As well as all of the goals above, there were a few goals from last year that I would like to give a new try, like collecting garbage and meditating regularly :)

- Last but not least, I'm going to unleash my inner Fairy Princess, and wear more jewelry, bindis etc. in everyday life, spreading the magic and be myself :)

- Do you have any goals for this year you'ld like to share? :)

Ps. If I  more goals come to my mind after this list is published, I'm not afraid to add them :3

~ 2014 ~

The year is soon over, and it makes me sentimental. I always get this strange feeling I can't describe. Do you get it too? It's like leaving something behind that you can't ever get back, and entering a new epoque you know nearly nothing about. It's weird, because that actually happens every day, but it just feels special because it's
"a new year".

For me, 2014 has been a fantastic year :) Mostly because I've spent so much time with my dear friends, and because I've made many new ones! <3

I am healthy, intelligent, determined, successful, beautiful and loved <3 I am experiencing a great period in my life and I'm flourishing! :D This year has been better than I had hoped for, and I have a good feeling that 2015 will bring
even better things!

Here is a little flashback of what this year has been like for me :)

 ~ January ~

It was a beautiful, snowy winter, and I was positive about the new year!

I had a list of personal goals for the year, but did I achieve them?
Keep reading and you'll find out :)

in the middle of the night! ^_^

I had an amazing journey to Europe!
And turned 23 years!

First to Hungary with Janne and Ruben <3
(A lot of photos to come! Be patient! :D)

~ August ~


...And in august I traveled to Belgium and Netherlands by myself,
and got a new sister, Nina <3

I celebrated my 1 year vegan anniversary :D

We'll see when I'll have the time :)

~ September ~

I went to Gjallarstadir Vikingmarked.

I spent a lot of time in nature with all the mushrooms and beautiful colours,
and celebrated Mabon.

And I went to London to see Kate Bush <3 <3 <3

~ October ~

I went to the release party of Siri Pettersen's second book, Råta.

The Pre-Raphaelite Muses calendar was published, 
and my photo was featured in Fae Magazine!

And my blog turned 1 year :)

~ November ~

I went to the alternative fair.

I fled from schoolwork to my family's cabin in the woods <3

And collected money for water in developing countries.

~ December ~

In december I had my exam and got A! :D

And finally I got a well deserved holiday!


(Ps: With this photo I won NOK 1000 kr in a contest, great end to the year! :D)

Last but not least, my goals for 2014:

- Drink more water.
I'm still not drinking enough.

- Drink more tea. 
Yes, I have been been drinking tea more frequently :) 

- Stop using shampoo and use the "no poo" method instead. 
Yes! I started on the no-poo method in june! :D

- Collecting litter whenever I'm outdoors. 
I haven't done this as much as I wanted to, but I have done it a couple of times.

- Read more books. 
Unfortunately, no... or... does curriculum count? :3

- See more new movies instead of re-watching old ones. 
Yes! Mostly series, but still! :)

- Worry less. 
This is a big character flaw in me, and really hard to change, but I think I did ok...

- Make more lists! 
Yes! Though I'm not always good at completing the things on it. Like this one...

I did not:

- Write a journal of gratitude. 

- Start doing yoga... :(

- Start meditating regularly.

But I did

- Seek guidance in my Fairy Oracle cards. At least for a while.

And most importantly,

I Spent more time in nature <3

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My wishes for the new year is for all of us to achieve our goals,
for all beings to be free from unnecessary harm,
and for love to grow <3

✫*¨*Happy new year!*¨*

~ Jul 2014 ~

I hope you are all having a wonderful holiday! :D <3 My yuletide has been very calm and I'm really enjoying the free time with my family, as well as Opus the cat, great vegan food, sweets, snow and presents! :D

This year's theme was 'bling', with only golden, silvery, white and sparkly decorations on our yuletree .✶*¨.✫*

Icicles, birds, mushrooms and fairies! Do you see Tinkerbell? :D
And the bird I thought was a Unicorn the first time I saw it? 
Let's just pretend it's a Unicorn <3

Like every year we watched the ultimate yulemovie "Tři oří?ky pro Popelku" / "Drei Haselnüsse für Aschenbrödel" / "Three wishes for Cinderella" / "Tre nøtter til Askepott" <3 No yule without it!

We have been 'catsitting' Opus for so long, I actually got him to cuddle on my lap for the very first (and last) time! :D <3

This year I got the biggest present, which my mother had hid at our neighbours until the very opening! I had no idea what it was, and with a hole on the side, I joked and asked if it was air holes for "the cat inside" :3 I had to feel inside the hole with my hand, and I instantly pulled it back, and screamed in fear, as something soft stopped my hand! For a second I thought my mother had become mad and actually given me a wrapped cat! Hahaha!

Luckily it was a dressmaker model! :D And now my childhood dream is slowly coming true :3

And here are some of my other presents:

An elephant tea pot, leaf plates, Elsa mug, necklaces, yule decorations, sea shells, incense, flowers, crystals and tea for the pot <3

- Do you celebrate yule? Did you recieve any nice presents? :)

Ps: As the year is soon to be over I'm preparing a summary of my 2014 for you, which I hope you'll like, so stay tuned :)

As promised, here is the results of our Art Exam :)

Artwork by Monika Borgan, Shabana Ghani,
Camilla Snekkerhaugen and myself. Photos by Monika Borgan.

We called the project "Small houses, great possibilities". The sculptures are made of play-doh and clay, and we placed them in all different sorts of places; 
inside, outside, on buidings, in nature etc. We wanted to inspire children to make their own toys and work with these materials in unlimited places :)
We were pleased with the result, and our examiners really liked it too! :D

- What do you think? Would children be inspired by and like this kind of art?

~ Waiting for winter ~

Hello, fearies and dearies! :)

As you might have noticed, I'm having a little break from my blog these days. I'm almost halfway through the first year at my new studies, but I'm still trying to get used to being a full time student! :3 It's a lot of work, and things I've been wanting to do for a loooong time, gets even further back on my to-do list.

I haven't answered my Q & A yet, as I want to answer some of them in separate entries (which means you still can ask questions, wee! Keep'em coming!), and I haven't celebrated the birthday of this blog, which was in October(!), either :O Now I'm in the middle of my exams, which fortunately are fun :)

We've just finished our music exam, and we're currently working on our art exam, so here you have a little preview :)

~ Wish you all a magical December! <3 ~

See you soon!

~ The Alternative Fair ~ 2013

Every November, the biggest Alternative Fair in Norway takes place, right outside of Oslo. Last year the theme of the fair was "Green and Ecological Living", and I went there with Ruben and Janne Eikeblad and we had a stand for Natursamfunn <3

I had an amazing time and SO many of our friends 
from all around the contry was there too! From the left:
Me, Janne, Ruben, Frøydis, Marita Tathariel and Camilla Rose <3

This year's theme is the same as last year, and I'll be there representing Natursamfunn again! :) Come over and say hi if you see me! :D

- Have you been to an alternative fair before?

~ Magical Fairy in the Enchanted Forest, Gaiadóttir fanart animation ~

Today I found out that I got my first fanart!
The photo and animation abowe is made by Frank Wilhelmsen, and is based on this photo from the Spring Faerie of Equinox photo series I made this March :)

- Have you ever had anyone making fanart of/for you,
or have you ever made it yourself? :)

~ Outfit, Sparkling Brown ~

Sometimes I like to sparkle like pixiedust :)

I love it when the sun hits the sequins and turns into tiny light all around me ^_^

- Do you ever wear sparkly garments? :)
