If anyone has peeked at my instagram account, they have probably noticed that I really love creepy photography. I also love Halloween. The two blend together into a perfect duet. I’ve wanted to do a ghost photo shoot for a while and I finally got my chance yesterday 🙂
Little Miss was originally going to be a wind up doll…last year. I did a self drafted pattern based on this photo I saw online. It’s a Victorian dress with lace insets all down the front and broderie anglaise trim. I was in love the first moment I saw it. There are more beauties at the Bowes Museum website.
I started with lace inset in the front. I pieced it together from lace I bought on etsy. The two I used on the front of my dress are from mingmingworld. They seem to still carry them here and here. The anglaise trim is vintage and it’s beautiful. So so beautiful. I had a rough time cutting it up. Once I had the lace inset done I couldn’t wrap my brain around how to add it to the rest of the dress and then Miss decided she wanted to be Rapunzel anyway so the project sat until I picked it up last month.
|The group of kids last year. My oldest made his own costume and I made the little one’s. My poor chicken terrified all the kids in the neighborhood.|
I have a couple in color, but I think the prefer the mood of the black and white
I think I’m going to grow up and be a ghost photographer!
