My Makeup and Costume for Pole Recital Photoshoot

Posted by on Apr 30, 2011 in Announcements, Art & Photography, Cosplay, Entertainment and Lifestyle, Featured, Music, Pole Dancing | 5 comments

I can say I’m a late bloomer.  I mean, I could have done all these things earlier – dancing, makeup, fashion and sewing!  But instead, I took a route to the corporate world first.  Not that I regretted ever studying Accounting and working for a corporation… I think all of that was meant to be and I enjoyed the journey I took and the people I’ve met along the way (which also incidentally prompted me to start my blog).  At least, no one can say I’m a dumb bimbo now coz I have proof – I’m a licensed CPA baby! but meh, I discovered that I wanted to do more things other than corporate.  I have used the left side of my brain and used it well, it is time for me to use my right brain :)

Makeup!

I knew I had to finally do this since I need to do my own makeup for my TV show Tek Tok TV.   I took a one-day personal makeup training with Cielo Frontreras.  If you see me and how I do my makeup now from time to time and you like it – that’s thanks all to Cielo!  I also watched Michelle Phan’s tutorials on YouTube from time to time 😛

Sewing!

To be honest, I haven’t sewn in more than 10 years already.  I studied sewing in high school as a side subject.

I knew I also needed to buy one because I have been dying to “create” and sew my own dresses.  I often get frustrated at going around malls and not finding what I want!

One day, thanks to my Google Adsense earnings, I boldly bought a sewing machine!  I didn’t even know at that time if I can sew again.  But what the heck, I tried making my Akazukin Cha Cha costume and I was doing fine!  Not the best tailoring, but good enough to start with (on me making my own costumes).

I don’t know how to make patterns though! >.< Which is a very important factor in sewing!  I tried trying to find online video tutorials, but sadly, I find their explanations to complicated.  I NEED to go to a school soon.  But how did I survive sewing my costumes even without me having any knowledge on pattern making?  I will share that secret in a bit!

 

Fashion School

Fashion and sewing go together!  I love dressing up!  but I don’t only love styling myself, I also think I have many ideas that would only be materialized if I sew them myself.

Luckily, I met a new friend at my Pole Dance Classes that helped me find a Fashion School I’m going to attend soon!

 

Pole Dancing!

I have always been a dancer.  But I stopped when I was taking my Accountancy course in College.  Biggest regret in my life! I shouldn’t have stopped dancing!  But it’s never too late to dance again and I would like to thank the Polecats for inviting me once to try their class and ladies and gents… I am now hooked… hooked on a pole – I’m in love!

We will have a recital soon on June 4.  Can you believe it? I’m going to perform and dance again! This is awesome!  Dancing and performing is just one thing I would love to do for life!

 

Photoshoot!

I just got home from our Pole Class Recital Photo Shoot.  and yaye, I did my own makeup (proud of myself that I can do this on my own now THANK GOODNESS!) and I tailored my own shorts for this since I couldn’t find any glittery shorts in the mall.

 

Pole Dance Recital Photoshoot

my goal was to look like Dita Von Teese (at least the makeup part)

I can’t do my own hair that well yet, so I took my wig and voila!

While doing my pants… sewed these myself!

 

GEDC0002

remember how I managed to sew without knowing how to make patterns…

well – I kind-of patterned it from one of the shorts I have at home 😛

I know, I know… I need to study pattern-making! >.<

Pole Dance Recital Photoshoot 2

had to cam-whore while I’m made-up… it took me like an hour to put on my makeup and stuff :)

 

So remember ladies (and gents if applicable), follow your dreams – NO EXCUSES!

If you don’t know how to do it – LEARN!  Be resourceful…

Trial and error you can make mistakes honeys, but remember to learn from it!

INVEST! and if you don’t have money yet – GOOGLE!

 

and if it won’t hurt much to try it and fail (relatively risk-free) just READY – FIRE – AIM! (contrary to Ready Aim Fire)

you don’t need to be prepared to reach your dreams or whatever it is you want in life… JUST DO IT! TRY! TRY! TRY!

 

3 years ago, I never imagined I would be doing all these…

oh, and if this helped you… spread the love! <3

 

Learn Pole Dancing with Polecats Manila!

 

love,
