Tales of the Fae Lands

Go Right to the Rose; Go Right to the White Rose (for me)

This is another photo contest entry blog, but I will have some amazing things to talk about soon!

This year, I’m going to be blogging for Hair Fair for the first time, and I am over the moon about it! In honour of finding that out just yesterday, here’s my first entry into this year’s Hair Fair Photo Contest.

Under The Ivy BLOG - 1
Go Right to the Rose

I was working on a much more complicated photo when I decided I had to do this one instead. It suddenly struck me that I needed a smaller posing area so it was apparent that my avatar was posing there with all those animals because the place provided shelter from the rain. I moved the avatar into one of the smaller arches and realised she was Under The Ivy. 

Some of my roleplaying friends know what a huge KaTe Bush fan I am, and that I can talk your ear off about her and what a genius she is, but I promise not to do that right now! The video is short, only two minutes and change, and the one I’m linking here has the lyrics.

Under The Ivy

If you’d rather just read the lyrics, here they are:

Under The Ivy

It wouldn’t take me long
To tell you how to find it,
To tell you where we’ll meet.
This little girl inside me
Is retreating to her favourite place.

Go into the garden,
Go under the ivy,
Under the leaves,
Away from the party.
Go right to the rose.
Go right to the white rose
(for me)

I sit here in the thunder,
The green on the grey,
I feel it all around me.
And it’s not easy for me
To give away a secret—
It’s not safe,

But go into the garden,
Go under the ivy.
Under the leaves,
Away from the party.
Go right to the rose.
Go right to the white rose
(for me)

It wouldn’t take me long
To tell you how to find it.

So, yes. Totally chuffed to be blogging for the 2016 Hair Fair! And totally chuffed to tell you all about the competition you’ve just seen my entry for, as well.

Here is a link to the rules for this year’s Hair Fair Photo Contest! This year’s theme is “Whatever The Weather”, so despite the KaTe song, my initial desire was to successfully do a shot where it was raining, the rain was visible and obvious, the hair looked good, and there was an underlying line and theme that I could get into. That said, I also figured that everybody and her blogging sister would do a rain photo, probably with Argrace hair, since they do a great job with windblown hairstyles. I haven’t delved into the Flickr Pool for the Hair Fair Contest yet, I’m sure that when I do I’ll see a lot of rainy photographs. Still, this was the photo that wanted to be taken, and I enjoyed taking it and working with it until it looked the way I wanted it to look. 🙂 You can enter up to five photographs, so maybe I’ll choose a less popular kind of weather for the next one. 😉
