Snow Queen

Recently I have attended an event with a “Winter Wonderland” -theme. Hans Christian Andersen’s Snow Queen has always been one of my favorite fairy-tails and I have already posted some Snow Queen imagery like this in my blog before:

But now, I actually had a chance to dress up as a Snow Queen. I have always wanted to illustrate that story, I think I just might as well do so in the near future. Look at this inspiration! There was everything – the frozen swan, the iced trees, the snowflakes and… the crown.

Florence and the machine

Florence has an amazing voice… and style. She is very inspirational and talented. I love her videos, they are always like fairytales and dreams. I decided to make an illustration of her wearing a dress by Mert Otsamo, the most promising and my favourite Finnish designer. I cannot of course be sure whether Florence knows him, but I am sure she would like this feather dress. It is absolutely astonishing. It makes me think of beautiful swans. What do you think?
