1900s Winter sports – photoshoot

I’d intended to go to the yearly 19th century ice skating meeting, in the capital, the first week of the new year.

But even though life happened, and I was unable to attend, I still had a vision of how cute my outfit would look. So I made plans for doing a ice skating photoshoot instead.

Well, despite three weeks of daily snow, the ice haven’t settled on the river by my house.
So, no ice skating, but at leas I managed to get a winter shoot of the costume.
Maybe I can go skating next year instead….

Ice skating – inspiration

As you might have guess, my main reason for making the fur hat was not to prance it around in my appartment – But to go ice skating in it.

The 19th century group comes togeter every january for some historical ice-skating in the capital, and I had made planes on going.
I didn’t had time to make a whole new outfit, but some accessories to spruce up an old costume was just the right amount of work for the in between christmas nights.
