This is my first attempt at spinning in character/alter ego and maintain a feel or theme with music, body language, dress, and footwork. Let me know what it said to you or what imagery came across, I have yet to see anyone spin with my vision I have for myself and would love to hear responses.

Note: It was very windy so if I look distracted my tails stung me quite a few times and I'm aware it happened a little. tongue2

Posted:Thank you ma'am! It's actually a very funny story how I became the "hipster nightmare".

Long, long ago when I was about 13 years old (sophomore year of high school) I was always a cracking dry jokes about the non-conformists conforming and mainstream people being sheep (basically rambling on about individuality and being original), but in actuality I too was a fashionista dedicated to being a trail blazer in all the lesser known underground cool stuff. My friends would call me out on it and I did everything possible to not be the true "hipster" I was having fun poked at me about.

Many years later we all come to the conclusion I'm too silly and too much of a wildcard to ever be a full hipster, so the "hipster nightmare" was deemed the most accurate title for my shenanigans! laugh3
