Photoshoot at the burnt-out school

The sun has come to Scotland! Kerry and I decided to make the most of it, by going out for a picnic and photoshoot.
The location was a beautiful abandoned building, the burnt-out Ferguslie Half-Timer's School for Girls. So called because at the time (1830s) the girls would work half-time in the nearby Mills, and spend the other half of their time in classes there. It had various purporses in it's time, one of them, ironically as a base for the fire-safety team for the mills...
It was a night club in the 90's, until 98' when it burnt out completely.
Now, it's just a shell. Full of ghosts and behind a chained gate. Naturally, we got in by asking a group of local kids how. They showed us the part of the wall that was easiest to climb over!

                                                 Once upon a time, it looked like this;

Now, it's a ruin...

 Of course I took a short series of film clips of our exploration!

Outfit Planning (5 Co-ord Challenge?)

Next weekend, there is a big meetup that will involve being filmed for a fellow loli's project. Of course, I want to look my best for her! This is also an opportunity to really show off my favorite dress (vampire forest, elizabeth) So I've been planning outfits!
Let me know what you think?

1. With white - I've only ever worn this dress with black and red in mind, however I wear a lot of white in other outfits and wanted to incorporate that with my VF jsk.

2. Oh so Goth - it's goth with a capital crucifix.

3. Blood and Gold - named after the anne rice novel, because this co-ord is all red and gold!

 4. Vampire Princess - Chandelier necklace, patent and button boots and a tiny tiara.
I'd wear it with big hair and lace tights, and go for a Hime gothic vibe.

 5. The usual, with a side of bonnet - This is the exact way I wore this dress before, but with a bonnet as well as roses. I just love bonnets so much, but if the weather stays the way it is just now, it'll be too warm!

And the 5-co-ord-challenge? Well, making several outfits from one dress is a popular game that comes up every so often on the EGL Comm. One of my favorites from the past was a 7-days challenge, to make 7 different outfits out of a select 7 pieces from your wardrobe for a whole week. This is also a theme in many japanese magazines. there's often pages showing one wardrobe item, and 7 day-marked styles you could wear it!

So, I challenge you! Choose your favorite piece from your wardrobe, and build 5 outfits out of it! or 7, if you want to play hard mode ;)
