Trapeze Show, Summer 2015

Heeey there. Almost two months! Is that a non-posting record for me? Probably. You know what the great thing about having a blog is? If you don’t feel like posting anything, you don’t have to. So that’s great.

But there was a show! And I sewed feathers to my bum! As one does in a trapeze show, naturally. The theme was Mardi Gras, and I gotta say, green, gold & purple are not my favorite colors together. I wanted to embrace the theme anyway, and not just cheese out on only wearing gold sequins. Don’t give me too much credit, I almost did. So if you’re gonna go for a theme, let’s go for it! Right?

Sequins: check. Mask: check. Feathers: check. And check out them circus shoes, man! I was tasked with greeting everyone to the show. One must wear circus shoes whilst greeting guests. Naturally.

Unfortunately there was no juggling act for this show. We were not consistent enough to put on a great show. But my juggling skills are currently off the chart (and I’m the worst of the three)! So there shall be juggling in the next show. But now…the flying!

Next up, the catch! The lovely Christopher was our catcher for the day. Don’t worry, I made the catch:

Look at them feathers, will ya? There are still feathers all over the property from my feather bustle. Sorry Dave!

And here’s the adult troupe!

Gosh I heart my circus people. How great is Betty’s outfit?? She’s 82, you know. I’m not kidding.

There were a few really great people that came out to see my show, and I’m so glad they did! One family came whom I had just met a mere two days prior. How great is that? Thanks to all of you who came to see me, I hope you know how much it meant to me! My sweet (and pregnant) sister even came early and did my makeup. Thanks Nik!

Ok, videos from show coming up next, stay tuned!

    It was so incredible seeing you fly and I’m so proud of you for following your circus dreams! You looked great and flew through the air with the greatest of ease. I’m honored to have been a part of your show. That feather bustle! So creative.
