Ballet by the sea and a church

Say no to sunlight.

 The murder victim...

 My ship has sailed.

Where's the sea witch that exchanges hurting feetsies for fins?

 have wated to see some jeellyfish in the wild for a long time. And here I was happily watching three of them jelly around.
Thank you for watching my wobbly jelliness!

Smell of autumn begining

Today I wore a mori girl inspired outfit for a walk in the woods.

I am the white ghost of the winter that's coming.  Or maybe a white mushroom.

The mandatory arabesque picture.

Because my Infanta JSK has pointeshoe lace. Which I will try to show with my pointeshoes.

The ribbons even seem to come from the right place, unlike in some of Baby's prints, which always annoys me so much.

Shopping at Ofelia Market

I had a lovely time, both on stage at the fashion show and off. Thank you so much all the lovely people! At the moment I'm overflowing with gratitute to have such friends from this hobby. OK pics or it didn't happen, right?

Here's what I wore that day :
The bonnet is new and from Mary Magdalene. It's been my long time dream to own something from MM and now it has come true. My new dream is to own a dress from them. (Because a girl has got to dream and my heart belongs to this brand.) And the colour of the bonnet matches so nicely to the colour of my VM JSK.

And then bye money. What I bought:

Another brand I finally have a representative of in my closet: Juliette and Justine. The beautiful Angel of Music print, which I also modeled in the show.

The faery cameo, because I've been madly in love with faeries ever since I was born.
"Sylinalle" headress from Essin maailma modeled by my Pinkie Pie:

The "make up for not waking me up in time in the morning" presents I got from dear hubby:
Also from Essi the cookie monster bracelet. (And suddenly I'm having an awful craving for my favorite Ben and Jerry's icecream-cookie dough. This piece af jewelry is going to be responsible of me getting these cravings and eating so much of it in the future.)

And this "Versailles" hair clip.
I'm also crazy about cameos.

Medieval festival in Hämeenlinna.

I love my new VM OP. I'm definitely going through a classic phase at the moment. I think I'm a bit before my time for the event as the outfit was more rococo inspired.

I'm the maiden of the castle in her balcony. Dear husband the knight can we take over and keep this castle?

 A more primitive lodgings at the excibit as the castle take over failed.

Hopefully I will meet many of you tomorrow at Ofelia Market.

The war with the pointe shoes and dancer's weapons

Today was sow and break in the new shoes day. As my pointe shoe hammer happens to be kinda roricredible I though I'd make a really random post about it. (Because even I am tired of only seeing my stupid face around here.)
the bigger Rose flower faery bow is my sewing kit and the smaller one contains raisin. (Used to make them less slippery.) No the special hard boxes are not wood, I hate that urban legend with a passion. The tip of the shoe is a rigid box made of densely packed layers of fabric, cardboard and/or paper hardened by glue. Yes you have to sew the ribbons and supposting elastics yourself. Sometimes it's even good to remove the slippery satin from the point and sew around it. Then the real war begins. Yes, I hammer them, bend them, bang them, step and  stand on them, do a funny run and jump around on demipointe to break them in. Sometimes even jam them between the door. Now the funny I do when they get too soft is put shellac on them or put them in the frigerator. They aren't that long lasting. One is lucky to get about 10 hours of dancing from one pair.

Then to the popular among dancers meme: What's in your dancebag?  Here are Elfie's the contents for todays class and repertoire.

 On the towel which is also a content, The bag, keys and wallet, small sweat towel, toetape, deodorant,water bottle, all squished protein bars, small shower gel,the too soft pointe shoes (too old),  pen, scissors, cellphone, sunglasses, muffin earplugs, lipbalm, Massage ball/ stress toy, footsie roller (also for massage), more toetape, bus ticket, compeed, rosin box, soft ballet shoes,wooly socks, navy leotard, tights, the too hard pointe shoes (too new), ouch pouches (used to protect toes in pointeshoes), the green theraband. (rubberband used for strenghtening), T-shirt, tights, scarf I use for warm up for my achy lower back, pink sweat pants, stripy wooly warm up shortssewing kit (needle and thread), the red/ black deuserband a rubberband I use for stretching, and a book to read on the bus. I'm sure I've forgotten something.

Close up of the random small stuff:
And I'm off to class with all of this weighing heavily on my back now.

I can never get over how pretty Kata's house is and she's a wonderful cook too, Not only does the food look pretty, but it was delicious too.

If you are feeling hungryright now I'm sorry. I certainly am.
