Wayfaring | Kit Sora’s Storytime

Found a magical staff in my travels and decided to use it, but didn’t know what I was aiming for! While digging through my wigs to figure out which one I’d use, I also decided to throw in the antlers I made for my Druid cosplay from Sci-Fi that I hadn’t properly shot yet, and thus this lil darlin’ was born!

Fun fact! My actual bangs are used for this shot! In between pink there’s generally a silver/white stage post lightening roots that looks pretty majestic, and I couldn’t resist passing up a chance to not show my forehead for a 52 🙃

Second fun fact! I sat in an ants nest minutes before these were taken, thinking a fun sitting photo would work-… It did not, and I was coated in ants ; ; Anyone who knows me will find out pretty quick that ants are the number 1 bug/creature/thing that I cannot handle! Shoutout to Drew for lying to me when I asked how many were on my body when I discovered 2 and -freaked- out

LAST (commonly known) FACT! I cannot keep my face straight for a long period of time, and precious moments like these are born!

Gentle | Kit Sora’s Storytime

Lately there is a 9/10 chance that when I set out to shoot a 52, I have next to no idea what I’m doing. This particular week was an out of town wedding, and an early morning to get back into town for a wedding show on Sunday- which left me little time to think let alone plan anything. So naturally, Drew and I wander off into the woods with a fancy ass dress, a flower crown, 3 birds, fake blood & a spool of wire, hoping for the best!

Funnily enough, once I had cleared myself of the fake blood (yes it stains in case you’re wondering), we were heading back down the little path cleared in a field of yellow flowers talking to the bees when a branch hit the ground behind us, and I noticed a precious little chickadee bouncing from one low branch to another on a tree I was standing next to! He wasn’t shy or afraid, and carelessly danced about~

Had I found him earlier, perhaps I would have pulled out all my Disney Magic to convince him into a photo with me

“Love in a Bottle” by Tish MacWebber |Short Story Winner

The dress was pretty, but not her style. She preferred comfort over fashion. Her hair was still damp. He had left her companions to assist with her preparations. They fussed over her hair, applied layers of makeup, and talked to her of the things which women talk about. Tips on how to make a man happy, and how to properly run a household. She would become the lady of the castle after the ceremony.

Tishlee barely paid attention. She longed to escape.

When her ladies in waiting completed their masterpiece, they made her stand and turn for them. “Beautiful!” They both agreed.

When she looked in the mirror, she saw through the reflection to the sorrow in her soul. She half-heartedly smiled and asked if she could wait in the garden. She wanted to clear her mind, she told them. Continue reading “Love in a Bottle” by Tish MacWebber |Short Story Winner
