reference1 - tree leaning by Gwenthyr reference1 - tree leaning by Gwenthyr
As I browsed trhough resources, looking for some good pose for my character picture I realized that it can be good idea post some photos as a repay reference for others.
So this is photo of me in my wedding dress. First of a small series I am willing to post.
The photographer who took it was my husband's friend Richard. All glory comes to him ;)

Free for use as stock as long as you send me a link of your finished work.

That is a beautiful dress! Reminds me of the one that Jennifer Connelly wore in the opening scene of Labyrinth. You are very fortunate to have worn that for your wedding. Thanks for showing it. =)

:aww: You are right but it was actually based on Eowyn's wool dress from LotR ;)
And yes I am :D We found out that it's not that easy to find someone who is confident enough to tailor it.
Thank you for the :+fav: :hug:

oh yeah...I'm not much of a LOTR fan, but she was really pretty in that dress too. I wore my sister-in-law's wedding dress and it was more of a princess style with puffed sleeves. I've always liked the Renaissance style of dresses though (like the ones that Drew Barrymore wore in Ever After).

You're welcome! ;)

It was the closest thing to my idea which I found on the internet, there are very detailed photos of this dress. I am not so hot on LotR either ;)
Well, this "Ever after" dress looks very nice. :aww: But I am afraid I wouldn't find a tailor outside movie industry to sew it up and it would cost me life-time expenses :XD: But maybe it's easier in US, it's a big country.
I wanted something very simple yet elegant. But I think I would do even with bed-sheets wrapped "artisticaly" around me :XD: Just to be as much "me without add-ons" as possible.

If you are crazy and hardheaded enough you still can come up with ocasions for wearing Renaissance dress ;) Even if (I guess) it's not so easy for a teacher. (Which is most honorable job in my opinion, I must say :thumbsup: :nod:)

I don't think it's much different here in the US to get a dress like in Ever After. I think it would still cost a lot to find someone to tailor something like that. =)

Most wedding dresses here are expensive! Even the ones on re-sale. Believe me, I looked! That's how I ended up borrowing my sister-in-law's dress. ;)

Thanks for the comment about teaching. I really appreciate that and there is actually a local renaissance fair, but I have not yet gone to it.

I believe you. My dress was second most expensive thing on our wedding - aprox. 480USD But I think it wasn't that much considering how much it gets to just borrow some wedding dresses...

Teachers and parents shape the future :aww: Child mind is fragile and bendable so I honor those who are able to do this job right and don't misuse it. :nod:

It was :) I am glad that it all went really well. And I love my wedding dress, I am going to color it and wear it on some LARP actions. It would be pitty if it just laid at home without use ;)

i was wandering about in deviant looking at costumes and references when i came upon your picture! while i do not pretend by ANY stretch of the imagination to be any kind of expert, i really do enjoy browsing and giving opinions according to my own personal taste. here is what this photo of yours makes me think.

you have just such the body type to pull off the cut and style of this dress! i'm quite jealous!:) the fit is excellent, through you said it was freezing that day, the weight and texture of material are excellent as well! the color is also not another one that as many people as think they can are able to pull of, yet you do it beautifully. the neckline is very flattering to your build and shoulders. and the fact that you kept both your jewelry and hair simple but very beautiful, it makes, on the whole, for a very striking outfit and overall effect!

congratulations on your marriage! you looked beautiful for the occasion:) (not that you do not look beautiful when in other things) *lol* :)
