Dreams in Newsprint

I walk alone, in a castle of dreams, wearing a paper dress. The paper envelopes me, it makes me beautiful. It sweeps the floor when I walk, and crinkles when I sit. 

It is the most beautiful dress I have ever worn.

Sometimes you create things so amazing, you didn't know you had the ability to! That is just what happened with this photoshoot. A friend and classmate of mine, Upasana, dreamt up of this surreal project, and made it happen! We sat up till late, making paper fans and pasting it to the dress, planned the hair, makeup, and locations beforehand. 

It took me about an hour to get into costume, and another, posing in the dress that was taped tightly on-to me, but it was totally worth it! I need more such fairytales in my life :)

Remember that first thread of e-mails from a couple of weeks ago? (winks) This made me smile, ever so hard! I love the theme, and this is so apt for your blog. So much fairy dust all around me, and I'm just storing some of the extra particles in a tiny bottle for luck! Lovely work, girls. :-)
