Haunted ghost girl

blank

Goodness gracious, the days are getting darker! Today I wanted to try something a bit different with my photography. I’ve recently been inspired by a lot of Jess Woods’ photography: it really

captures the ominous feeling of November for me, and I wanted to try something similar with my own photos. I wanted to pull off some pieces that were more lucid in feel, almost like as if one were slipping through consciousness. There is a kind of intimacy you gain with the subject and the person behind the camera – and also a subtle hint at horror, as if one had fallen in to a different, lonely kind of realm of mind altogether.

Here I am wearing my beloved Gunne Sax dress – I posted a peek of it here. I love all of the intricate details of it. It fits a little tight so I might see if I can make any adjustments. I wore it to our bonfire evening at the castle on the hill, although we found a perfect watching place in the graveyard, which was better lit. It looked beautiful: the eeriness of the old ruins succumbing to the dusk of another approaching evening. Now it has only trees for company. “The woods are lovely, dark and deep; but I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep” -Robert Frost

I had my hair trimmed shortly after taking these; traily hair = good for lonely ghost girl look but difficult to care for or make nice in real life! I’ve had an inch or so off so it just reaches to my ribs now and is a lot thicker at the ends. We had a lovely walk with Oscar during the taking of these photos, although it rained so much and I had to hitch up the hem of my dress. We were perfectly warm in coat and cardigan: I’m so happy it’s scarf season at long last! I would love to find a veil to pair with this outfit, I found many a cheap wedding veil at bestweddingveil.com, and maybe shoot it again in the summertime at dusk.
