~ 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 )

~ 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
