Victorian Snow Lady

I’ve been reviving a tradition I started last winter, that of making a historic snow sculpture. Some of you may remeber that I did one last year, a Regency snow lady. And now I made another one. It snowed here a few days ago, it was a real snow storm, in November! And this snow was just perfect for snowballs ad for forming. So I decided to try another era this time; Victorian.

I was quite pleased with how she turned out. Gabi, our friend who is a photographer, took these first four pictures and let me use them here. Thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚

These pictures I took myself, hence the not so good quality… It’s a bit hard to see, since it’s all so white. But you get the general idea.

And here is a close-up of the hair, you can almost make out the curls and the bow…

Aron and Esra had lots of fun pretending they were going to knock her head off! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Now she is all melted away. Only a part of the skirt still remains. Ah well…

    Lovely! My two year old was walking past the computer and said, “Oh look! A snow princess! And a fire princess.” ๐Ÿ™‚

    What a great idea! That must have taken quite a bit of time, but the result is amazing. Pity it doesn’t snow a lot of often where I live.

    Thanks ladies!

    Jennifer – aww that is so cute! Thanks for sharing what she said with me!

    Tilia – it did take quite a long time actually, but it was fun. ๐Ÿ™‚

    You’ve inspired me, Aurora.
    What a lovely snow sculpture! You did a fabulous job!

    My sisters and I have made countless snowmen, forts, life-sized (and ridable!) horses, and such, but never a historical snow lady! As soon as it warms up a bit here in North Idaho (it would be an improvement if the temperature would go above 0 degrees F) I will make the attempt. Our foot or so of snow is pure powder at this point…

    I also wanted to let you know that I enjoy your blog very much, though I have not commented as of yet!

    Thank you Kellie, for your kind compliments and your comment! I’m glad to hear you enjoy my blog! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yup, that’s what our snow is like over here now too. Powder. And it’s windy, so it’s blowing all over the place! Not ideal for sculpting. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    If you get around to making something when the snow “improves” (improves for that reason anyway…) I hope you’ll share some pictures!

    You’re most welcome!
    The snow is perfect just now – if I actually find time to do some snow sculpting, I’ll be happy to post pictures=)
