Travel theme: Costume

I love costumes, I love dressing up for some special ocassion and I really love taking vintage photos.
A few years ago we visited Bulgary, we travelled around the coutnry and several days we spent by the sea at small town Pomorie. I really enjoyed the atmosphere there, specially evening walks on promenade and by the sea. Fortunatelly, the first evening I found a special stall, where they had a lot of beautiful colorful dresses and they were doing vintage photos.


Promenade and colorful dresses

We were looking in astonishment how a family with small girls were carefully dressed up, every little detail was handled.


Family getting ready for the shot

And finally I made my husband to go for a photo as well.


Choosing the right costume and dressing

The next day, as we went for the final photos, we were watching another family being taken, really great again!


Great family shot

So I made my husband for one more photo!


Our two shots, my husband is astounding in uniform

And as a result we have two beautiful photographs taken hundred years ago :-).

    I’ve always wanted to take a photo in a period costume. These are wonderful.

    Such fun ,I”m glad that they cut the photos off at the knees, the flip flops would have ruined the atmosphere! 🙂

    These are great! I love photo dress-ups, they always reveal a side to our families we did not know was there!
