Four years ago, I turned twenty-one.
I turned a year older than twenty, four years in the past.
If you were to subtract 970 days off my age now, that was the time I became one and twenty years old.
When I was one and twenty, I was mad about anything medieval and I loved photography. So it was only natural to get a photo shoot with my medieval dress (which was a birthday present from my mum and aunt) to celebrate my – er – twenty oneness.
The dress is from Armstreet. They make the most gorgeous medieval dresses. Actually, they make everything from real armor to head dresses and boots.
Every now and then I go on their site and drool over their latest creations.
I was very serious on the day we shot these photos. The lovely lady who took them could hardly get a smile out of me.
I was feel the seriousness of art.
We did most of the medieval shots outside in a field behind her house.
In this one, she made me run down the grass several times while her camera snapped away.
Ever run in a linen medieval dress and heavy tunic?
The fact that I’m even smiling tells you how relieved I was to stop gallivanting around a field in a medieval dress.
This one’s interesting. It’s like I’m leaning with the Earth’s rotation.
Guess I was feelin’ the Earth that day too.
Themed photo shoots are a lot of fun.
I’d do it again tomorrow.
And when the photographer’s cat joins in the funness (much to the surprise of the photographer herself, but what can I say, animals adore me), it can be even funner.
Okay, I’ll stop.
xx Lots of love,
Weird Medieval Girl
