Posted:Well it's not definate yet, since I told her it depended on whether or not I'm feel I'm good enough to put on a performance.

but I bought tail poi and was using them on my off time at work, she works with me, so when she saw me, she watched for a bit, and we started talking about it. She thought it was like the coolest thing, so she asked if I would want to spin at her wedding reception, that's gonne be outside at night, and I would be spinning under uv lights, which just makes it easier for me, since under uv, that tails look awesome, and being my first performance, the fact that I'm sort of hidden in the blackness will help my mentality XD


So anyways, I have like 6 months, and I could always just let her know I'm not comfortable if it comes to that, but do you think a beginner can get good enough in six months to perform in front of a group?

Posted:Totally. Don't worry about your skill you'll have loads down by that time. This thread should be about what you are going to wear ^^b Since UV light maybe invest in the UV body paint?

hehe, thanks.

and yus! body paint for the win! n .n

Her theme is enchanted wedding, with the colors white blue and purple, so I was thinking I pick up a pair of tial poi that have any of those colors that react to uv light, it would look awesome, and as for body paint I wanted to do something fairy like. though I'm not sure yet how I'll achieve that loook :3

Feel the beat it will show in your performance.
If you dont like the track just walk away.

Ah I get what you mean, yeah that would be awsome. now that I'm looking at it n .n

I actually go to college for art, so there are always people who can paint, or are in performance arts, who do face painting and stuff who are willing to do that sort of stuff.

Thanks so much for the ideas!:D

rofl so true XD

and the very first time I did any trick in front of people was for a presentation I did for an art class, and I bonked myself on the head while all 40 of them watched me. And I recovered nicely from that, so I'm sure I'll be able to get over the anxiety once I get up and start grin
