The Year In Costume & Dance 2014

ATSWC.1-sideprofile

 

Like many other gothic folks, I LOVE wearing costumes!  Of course, for me the main occasions I dress in costume are Halloween and belly dance performances.  I thought I’d share a quick rundown of the costumes and dance performances I did this year.  Enjoy!

 

Costa Rica Dance Retreat w/ Rachel Brice – February 15-22

CR14.103-me.grass
OK – I’m not in costume, nor did I perform. But this was Costa Rica (beautiful country!) with workshops taught by Rachel Brice (beautiful dancer!). And I also celebrated my 41st birthday here. This entry had to be included!
