Last weekend after finishing all the 19th century underwear for the HSF 12 and 13, I talked my boyfriend into helping me take som photos.
He agreed on condition we waited until there were breaks in the fotball games on Tv.
This turned the photoshoot into 3 hectic periods of shooting and then 45 min of down time in between (where I took the time to change clothes and re-arrange the settings), making the whole process drag out through the evening and not being finished untill midnight.
Anyhow here it is – And a warning: This is a picture heavy post.
I started by arranging some settings in my bedroom.Shawl, petticoat and skirt.
And some boxes, juwvelry, glowes nad fans on my drawer.Then we were ready.
Starting with the 19th century chemise.
Then I put on my 19th century corset and the new 1880s bustle.
Then it was time to re-arrange the settings, and time tavel back another 30 years to 1850s. I hung my plaid green 1840s dress combined with a shawl and petticoat on the wardrobe door.
And placed my 1840s velvet bonnet on the table together with a lace fan, some faux flowers and juwvelry.
I keept the basic underwear like chemise and corset, but changed my shoes and stockings. And then I put on my new 1850s cage crinoline.
And lastly I put on my new cotton petticoat.
So there you have it, 4 HSF items in one photoshoot.
Well actally the corset, brown bonnet, and green plaid dress are HSF items as well.

Great photoshoot! I love the background props and you’ve done well with indoor lighting and an interesting time schedule! 😛
It’s not always easy to find good places to take photos.
