It's snowy evening in Tallinn and it's already dark outside. Winter will start officially the day after tomorrow .. OMG .. Do you already have the Christmas-is-coming mood? I'm not yet because there is one, more important date before that - the 16th of December and exhibition in Moscow. Though, I'm not in holidays mood, my studio looks pretty similar to Santa's home Unfortunately, I do not have elves who can help me ..
The outfit is almost done. All costumes for 3 girls from Inner Mongolia collection is made of velvet and brocade. Garment and hair accessories (yes, these are hair accessories on the hair braided) are silver and unique - as usual made by jeweler in a single copy only for this collection.
More photos in my flickr) And I will go - continue finishing the costumes)

It's 8 days left before the exhibition ... And today I'm starting the presentation of my "Inner Mongolia" collection concept. Later, I will tell you more about traditional decorations, headgears, costumes, and body ornaments. Today I would like just to give you an idea of the collection - in general, briefly.
As we all know, ancient people (our ancestors) prayed not to philosophical, abstract ideas, but to 100% real, existed objects and natural phenomena. They prayed to a deer before kill him during hunting, prayed to a bird flying high into the sky, prayed to an old tree growing in a sanctuary forest, they prayed to the Sun, Sky, Stars, and Darkness. To be frank, such philosophy is very close to what I feel about the world around... That's why three my shamans are dedicated to three ancient gods amongst the most significant and powerful ones - the gods personifying eternal elements and phenomenas.
So, they are:
Tenger (Sky) - the girl in white
Shöniin (Night) - the girl in black
Gal (Fire) - the girl in red
Today I'm sharing with you the last photos of details and, hopefully, in 2 or 3 days they will be ready to make a public appearance here
Wish you a great evening!
Tenger’s headgear and hat (Silver, semi precious stones, beads, natural fur for hair):
