Something they called horror

Quite a hectic and kind of full weekend is behind me. I was busy doing all kind of different tasks like reading some law text which is fairly exhausting (yeah, I'm dreaming of making the second uni degree, but I'm quite insecure if I have time for that. At least I try although right now it feels I'm mostly struggling. I'm not sure if there is any sense when I'm already over educated, but I like to develop myself and learning new things is rewarding). I'm very good at arranging more things to do although the time is very limited affair. 

But not all weekend passed with studying. On Friday evening we finally watched the Vvitch with my beloved. That film was released in 2015, but  only now we managed to watch it. And I liked it. The atmosphere was magnificent and also it was visually to my dark taste. I'd actually re-watch it even immediately. However my beloved said that there was overmuch Holy Spirit in that film. Whatever, now I can cross out one film from the list I have "movies you should watch". 
On Saturday a bunch of awesome burlesque performers entertained us in the event which was sold out. A few beers (literally only a few) and loony nuns and devils made our night. Awesome show again and quality performers. Definitely worth every penny. 
 I was dressed in this age-old skater dress which is partly worn out, but I haven't done any new party dresses in a long time. Perhaps there would be a need for one new? I do like to wear quite simple dresses these days even in the party and there are a few favorite models which I nearly almost pick up. The skater dresses are nice, but also a  sleeveless slip dress works. Long satin gloves and hat give a festive look when the dress is simple and even workaday. There was a horror theme in the event, but like always I didn't have energy to put effort into my look although some zombie look would have been very charming. 

Sometimes death do not us part.

Can you hear the breath of trees?

The autumn runs forward and I'm worried it goes over too quickly. The best "orange phase" is right now and I've tried to capture it through the lens as much as I can (not enough though). I spent time in the forest last weekend and it felt super comfy place to be. Finnish nature is one of those best things in this country in additions to the changing seasons.
This sweetie occurred to say hello. I was hoping to see some deers or mouses and I started being already quite desperate while sitting in the bush. I was about to leave until this only one appeared from the woods. (And I do hope to get the new better lens at some point. I'm saving up for that all the time)
The new dress was on for the first time. I made it some weeks ago. It's made of the stretch and white lace piece which is a part of the second hand top. I'm quite happy with the result. 

The week has gone very quickly and it's again the weekend... The coming weekend will include some burlesque after a break.

Art worshipper

We paid a visit to the church on last Sunday, not because we wanted to praise the lord, but we were interested in hearing the game music when it was played by using the organ of the church. The organ is the fine instrument and the acoustics is always special in the church. In addition the church is very magnificent, it keeps inside an artwork from my favorite artist (or one of them) : Hugo Simberg. I definitely recommend to visit here if you are around the corner.  I'm not at all religious person, but the churches represent me the art pieces in itself. 
I was dressed in the trench coat, suede boots (from Vagabond) and beret. The coat is many years old and I have not worn it much in recent years, but now I brought it from the basement and I've started wearing it again. It has been the very chilly weather and the warm clothes are quite much needed. 

The Garden of the death and the Wounded angel are my favorites. 
I love the shape of the roof. The church is not that big, but it is very elegant. 

A life of mine has been quite busy (what a surprise) and the blog has spent again some silent days. I have a lot of material and I hope to find the time to share them with you. I have a great inspiration to photograph and I've spent much time in the nature. Also the sewing machine has stolen the time which is of course awesome. Creativity is blooming and I'm not ashamed of that at all.

Inside the blouse

Hello. The autumn makes headway and the weather gets colder a day by day and if I'm honest it feels that I have lost my cold resistant completely. In the morning while going to work I have trembled crazily, but the good thing is that I have still managed to keep myself healthy. Many other people around have suffered from the cold like my beloved so I've tried to isolate myself from the disease nest in my best way.  

One outfit which I have worn a lot recently is the huge dress or shirt and it's very lovable and easy to wear. It needs just tights on and some heels and looks good enough. I especially like those sleeves which are enormous. Material is fairly thin so the dress needs some pullover with it now when the temperature is close to zero. It's a shawl that the period, when it was possible to walk outdoors without wearing a overcoat went over so quickly. 
It seems that the simple graphic garments have come to stay in my life. I would lie to say that I miss more sophisticated clothes into my life.

Art experience

On Sunday evening we were adventuring around my old corners and stopped by this art center which actually was very unfamiliar location to us both. I lived close to it before and have passed by it several times, but I didn't know what that place really keeps inside. It's an old mental hospital or at least I have heard a legend of that. These days there seems to act an art center and they coincidentally had an exhibition going on. I was just going to see the coffin which was filled with the books ( a new kind of library), but people there invited us to see also inside. And so we got a tour which revealed a time machine,  famous toilet and art workshop to name a few. Awesome  place. I do hope that the city won't ruin this. 

 Typical clothes which I have worn recently. It starts to be quite chilly weather especially in the mornings. An old false leather jacket is still one of my favorite coat and huge knitting under it. Both are many years old.
This character greets you every time while walking on the street. 
 The coffin was to my taste and obviously it catch an attention from others too thus there was people wondering it with us.
