I love Gypsy Life!
Soo this week, I have been getting things sorted! I have lots of exciting things in the making and I am trying to make things happen 🙂
I received my video from the Stockholm Burlesque Festival, and it has gone down surprisingly well. I was a little unsure as to how my act would go down in an unfamiliar country but I decided to throw caution to the wind and be completely ridiculous! And as I have seen from the video; it appears to be the case 😛 Scroll down to watch if you have no idea what I am talking about!
This week I also booked my 3 month acrobatic course with Circus Space. I have been wanting to do it for a while, but either I missed a place or I hurt myself so it never worked out, but I am now super excited to start in January. I have been wanting to take my bendiness to the next level as I am limited to what I can achieve in my basement, so hopefully I will get much better!
I am also excited to be making another custom Ruff this week for Miss Jones. My Ruff skills are not completely up to par but I try my best and make everything with love so hopefully it will work out nicely 🙂
I have been fire breathing at the Cuckoo Club all weekend which I was mostly excited to wear my new leotard for. Yup, that’s right!
I have also bought tons more wigs and fabric, for who knows what. Been also practising my fire and rehearsing like a mad woman in general in an attempt to push fierce into a new place.
On Saturday night, I went to The Katzenjammer Club at Apartment 58 where I got to see my friend Mark R Charade DJ, and some amazing performers like Marnie Scarlet and Florian Brooks annihilate the stage! I am so happy to have seen Florian debut his new juggling act with LED clubs which was actually incredible. He is quite the swish muthafu*er 🙂 And as always, I love to see the amazing and bizarre Marnie Scarlet. Her Marilyn Monroe act was amazing, and having only seen it once before in its debut; it was great to see how far it had come and how much emotion has been put into it. Phenomenal ❤
As for me.. Well I went dressed up as some kind of Lady GaGa/ Cruella Deville hybrid. This was not my initial intention although it was perfectly fine! Now, although I did make most of the outfit, I had a few inspirations so I cannot take full credit for the idea..
The initial inspiration was GaGa in the Paparazzi video. This has always been one of my favourite outfits of hers – wonder why 😛 #ruffs
These are some of the make up looks that inspired the night’s make up.

All in all, a fun and creative week.
Stay tuned for the craziness that will be my commencing week 🙂
Stay Strange and Keep it GaGa
