Steampunk calendar photo shoot

This past Wednesday, I had the honour of being part of a photo shoot for a steampunk themed calendar. It's to raise funds for a local show about subcultures in Winnipeg called Subgenres Winnipeg. As such we don't want to leak any of the shots, but I have some photos from backstage.



Me getting ready.



The beautiful Tiffany trying different outfits on.



I can't remember this young lady's name unfortunately, but I love this outfit.
The shoot was at The Prairie Dog Central, an old steam train, that you can ride in the summer time. Right now it's in storage. Here are some of the trains.






Last month we also did a photo shoot at the Dalnavert House, a museum which I've written about before in past blog posts. Again here are some of the backstage shots.



Tiffany dressed in here finery.



Me and Natasha, the lovely host of Subgenres. :)






One of the participants, Athena is pregnant and has tiny goggles for her new addition! So cute.

Both shoots were lots of fun! I'll post a link to the calendar when it's finished.

Spring!




The first day of Spring was on Wednesday, although it doesn't really feel like that here on the prairies. On Monday we got a March snowstorm, with 10cm of snow and -20 temperatures. Here's what it looked like.






Not very spring like. It usually doesn't feel like spring here until April though. Oddly though, there are some buds popping up between the snow and the house.



On Thursday I celebrated Ostara with friends. We feasted and celebrated even though its cold and snowy out.



Our spring chocolate chickens.



Me dancing with the smarties chickens.



Our feast! We tried to balance out the candy with vegetables.

I hope everyone is having a good spring with better weather than us. :)
