舞子はん

After getting trussed up, we had some extra time. I had the genius idea to find a flowering plum tree and take stereotypical pictures next to it.

Ava and I had our fan dancing performance today, and it was a lot of fun.  I’m totally relieved that we get a reprieve from the PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE OMG schedule we had going for awhile there, though.  And, once again, it was nice to get all trussed up and Japanese-ified.  Doing it this time with a partner-in-crime was wonderful as well–lots of laughs, shared looks of understanding, and someone to commiserate with over my nerves.

We are also now famous throughout Iki.

So here are some photos from the day.  West Side Story is playing in my head.  I feel pretty, oh so pretty, and witty, and gay!

But... while Ava looks elegant and gorgeous, I once again show how I'm incapable of making a normal face in photos.

These also made a really sweet shadow. (Oh, we're actually starting the dance here.)

Posing is a key part of any performance.

Being scandalous by showing off a bit of back tattoo.

Ava rocked the technique this go-around.

Finishing touch!

Ava has the recorded video version on her camera, so once she posts it to YouTube, I’ll set up the link here.

My hair is so stiff from hair spray.  😀
