We had a rather impromptu shoot for this and then suddenly... RAIN. On that day the weather was super cloudy and borderline about to pour but rather than take refuge inside we decided to take advantage of the clouds! That being said, it was super cold that day and I had a billion goosebumps on my skin...
There's this empty(?) house off the side of the road that is either abandoned or rather disused... it didn't look so bad in the daylight but the gloomy weather and dead trees totally didn't help with its image. We chickened out on going further in beyond the fences plus neither of us were dressed to make a run for it if anything had happened
like at the end of the game GO PLAY IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY
All parts of the outfit that required sewing were done by me. I made this with leftover material from my fabric cabinet upon randomly coming home for the weekend. The skirt is a circle skirt with an elastic waistband and inseam pockets. There is horsehair braid in the hem for more flare to the skirt. There are three soft petticoats under the skirt that made up the floof of it. I had two brown shoes to wear with Viola but I decided to go with the brown leather boots that had a bit of blue detailing on them because they were the only things that could withstand the mud. It was a good choice because the dirt roads were SUPER muddy. @_@ My poor boots...
