Hello, lovelies! Back on April 30, my ATS® dance troupe and I performed for the Sahara Dance annual Spring show, Under A Desert Moon. This year’s theme for the show was “Dreams”, so the 14th annual Under A Desert Moon was aptly titled, Dreaming Under A Desert Moon.
First, here’s my makeup and costume for the annual Spring show and my first ATS® makeup tutorial:
Our group, Raquettes Amira, took inspiration from the dreaming theme to create magical, “elf-like” goddesses. Our dance sister, Illyria, made our harem pants and our dance instructor, Eugenia, made our Ghawazee coats. Elizabeth (aka “Gaia”) came up with the idea to represent different goddesses. You can tell that we have a couple fans of Game of Thrones within our group. I haven’t seen the show, but I will jump at any chance to look like “royalty”.

We performed a slow piece to “Journey” from Video Games Live, by Austin Wintory. Very dreamy. I felt like we were in a fairy tale. As you know by now, I’m a huge fan of themes.

I hope this post has put a bit of joy in your day. This was one of my favorite performances and definitely my favorite costume! Who doesn’t like looking like a goddess? I’ve included our dance performance video at the end. Enjoy and may all of your dreams come true.
Love & Shimmies,
