Didn't you know, deer, that I'm fawned of antlers?

Yeah... I know it's not even funny, but I couldn't resist that oh-so-punny title.

Anyway, James and I recently did an awesome deer-lolita photoshoot! I wore one of my favourite Bodyline dresses with Innocent World socks, Axes Femme boots and, of course, a pair of antlers decorated with lots of flowers. The shots turned out great, and I wanted to quickly share my few favourites.

I was incredibly happy with how my make-up turned out. It was my first time doing this look, and my first time ever really doing anything costume-y at all. I was so proud I managed to do such a good job, and it didn't even take that long to do. I followed this youtube tutorial though I didn't do false lashes and had to change up some of the products she uses, because I don't own bronzer and my white eyeliner is awful. But I view make-up like cooking; substitutions according to circumstance are nearly always fine as long as you vaguely know what you are doing.

The park where we shot these is one of our most recent location finds, which we discovered via Jen of The Emerald Ruby who always has lovely photos that make me ask, with embarrassing frequency, "Where did you shoot that?"

I really loved the vibe we got on this shoot with the lens flare and everything, and if you want to see the rest of the shots they're up on both my facebook page and James's photography page.


  1. I normally just get your blog posts by email but I just HAD to come here and tell you that the title is amazing! Got a good chuckle out of that.

    1. Yay! I'm really glad it made you laugh ^__^
