I was happy to be asked to be a part of a new tv series about blogs and bloggers. It's called Blogistania and it will bw out next month!
The camera crew came to my home and to my atelier. It was a bit stressful, since my home is a very private place to me... My cats Bix and Cecil are in almost every frame, i'm sure. My little tv-stars! They were very exited.
On the street where i live. I'm wearing self made capelet and hat.

At my atelier with friends, Miia Magia and Bettie Blackheart
This marvelous 30's dress is one of the dresses i found while dumpster diving a while ago. I told you about it in this post, remember? I'll post pictures of other dresses i found later, when i'm wearing them. Ofcourse not all of them were my size, some of them i gave away or sold.
One of the most handsome movie stars of all time!

There is SO MUCH snow out there right now so i thought it would be time to post few photos from last summer. We took a trip to Nummi. That's where my family comes from (i was born here in Helsinki and so was my mom, but my grandmother [i miss her so] was born there).
This is a wonderful place called Kasvihuoneilmiö (greenhouse effect). It's a second hand store and a cafe. And it's filled with plants and stuff!

Parrots and mailboxes
I LOVE books!

We visited my grandmothers grave. The small semetary is a very peaceful and beautiful place.
I brought her some flowers from a nearby meadow.
On our way home we came across a funfair.

What a perfect housewarming party! They had faux mustache (and Optimus Prime masks!) for all the guests and a creepy Mexican chocolate cupid filled with tequila.

So, have you seen this trailer? What do you think? I was one of the lucky ones to be a part of this movie. I made the costumes for the teaser and was working in the costume/costume props department.
For a low budget movie (about 7.5 million€ [comparing to the Amazing Spider Man that had something over 200 million dollars]) it looks pretty darn good. And no, Hollywood had nothing to do with this. It's a Finnish-German-Australian co-production.
