~ Dark Forest, Photoshoot with Klaudia Lech ~

Almost exactly a year ago, I met the incredibly talented photographer Klaudia Lech, and we had this amazing photoshoot together. Since then some of her photos has been featured in The New York Times, Marie Claire and many other international tabloids, and I'm sure we'll se a lot more from her in the future!

~ The Tea Party ~ The 150th anniversary of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland ~

This year it's 150 years since Alice's Adventures in Wonderland was published. I've always wanted to have aproper Tea Party, and yesterday I hosted the most wonderful Tea Party in honor of the works of Lewis Carrell, beautiful tea pots, sugar, spice and everything nice.

Our table was filled with all kinds of treats and drinks. Bread sticks and my home made cashew dip, gluten free cucumber sandwiches, bisquits, chocolate soymilk, coconut cubes, blackcurrant juice, turkish delight, rose lemonade, grapes, lollipops, sweets, teas, teas and teas.

I was joined by Annette and Ada and her dog Mina aka. Fluff :)

My March Hare and Mad Hatter :D

Fluff being fluffy :)

*taking photos*

Can you see the little heart in my chocolate? ♥

I finally got to properly use all my pretty, lovely
and beautiful tea cups and tea pots!

Glitter and pearls in my tea <3

- Have you ever hosted or been to a Tea Party before?
What is essential to your ideal Tea Party? :)

~ Silken Green ~

This summer a friend and I had some fun trying out some new things with his camera. I wanted to wear my beautiful silken green skirt. And twirl. 

*twirly twirl*

I should twirl more. We all should.

~ Pre-Raphaelite Muse ~

It's already been over year since I had the photoshoot for the Pre-Raphaelite Muses Calendar 2015! And I think it's about time I share the photo series with you! The photo in the calendar is obviously left out of, as I hope people want to buy the calendar ^_^ (Even though the year is nearly over... :3 )

All though none of these photos are edited, (as they were taken by my ex who's not a photographer), I really like them and the atmosphere we managed to capture :) I would really love to do more Pre-Raphaelite and nymphy shoots in the future :)

- What do you think? Which is your favourite? :)

~ Gifts of the North - my new shop! ~

Hello, everyone! I'm so happy to announce that I'm finally opening a shop on Etsy! I've been wanting to do this for over a year (maybe two...:s)
and now it's happening at last!

It's called Gifts of the North, and I'll be selling self made, vintage and pre-loved items, mostly with a romantic, fairytalesque quality,
like everything else I do and share :)

One of the things I'm selling is the Pre-Raphaelite Muses Calendar of 2015!

Go take a look! :D


Ps. Prices on shipping might be wrong at the moment, as I'm still very fresh in the game! I will update the shop on prices, and more items when I get the chance :)


~ Poldark (2015) ~

Yesterday I started watching the tv-series Poldark,
and I'm completely sold! <3
Movies and series with romance, stunning nature and costumes to die for is my absolute favourite kind, and Poldark is now added to the list! :D

I've only seen two episodes so far, and even though it 'starts' like this^, we all know where this is going to end :D <3 :D <3 (At least we think we know)

Earlier this summer I saw the BBC series The White Queen, which was o.k., and from that series I fell in love with actress Eleanor Tomlinson! As you can see in this little 'photo rant', she's the one I'm obsessing over :3 (I seem to do that every time I recommend a new series here... obsess over the leading female character and her wardrobe...)

I need this coat.

- Have you watched Poldark? :D

~ Victorian Picnic in Oslo Botanical Garden ~

A few weeks ago, I went to my first Victorianesque picnic in Oslo :D

Of course it took place in the most perfect place - the Botanical Garden :)
I wore a 1700s inspired rococco dress, bought second hand by a larper here in Oslo, and I was honored to be photographed by Danarki! 
I love the result <3 More photos here.


~ Roman Holiday ~

Tomorrow I'm travelling to Rome for a week with my sister and mother :) The photo is from our trip to Crete in 2012 ^_^

When I come back, I'll start on my second year of my kindergarten studies, and I promise I'll share photos and thoughts from my awsome trip! Bot this and the epic one I had last year! :O Me so slow! :3

Hope you're all enjoying the summer! <3
(I never get used to the fact that some parts of the world has winter when we have summer, so I never know what to say xD )

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!

For more info about the outfit, click the image below:


~ 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 ;)

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 :)

~ 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.


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"? :)

~ 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 )
