Dem Dames from Los Vegas [Jun. 30th, 2014|11:18 am]
dark_okami
So, went and visited another show from the burlesque girls I'd met at the comic convention. I told them I'd be happy to fold them something for each visit and I dunno why but they seemed rather excited about that lol. This time around I made six stilettos, four kittens and a 4 leaf clover. I placed them in an origami box and gave it to the stage manager when I arrived, requesting it'd be given to the headmistress back stage. She asked for a name and I told her that they'll know who it's from when they see the box. Sure enough, I was right, and I was told there were a couple of squeals lol. The kittens (the girls who pick up props after each act, etc.) were happily surprised to receive something.

The show itself was pretty nice, best part was being asked to remove the headmistress' glove with my teeth during her first act, can't say I complained at the idea ;). The silks were one of my favorite acts to watch, but the guy at the lighting used a too powerful spotlight, even the girl on the silks was a bit blinded by them. A gal visiting from Dallas to perform did an act on her love of bacon... just wow.

These gals are all lovely in their own way, and I'm glad I'm friends with the majority of them, one even invited me to her birthday bash in August, and I'm having coffee with her later this week.

July's theme's gonna be pop culture, and I'm trying to think of what to fold for that one. I got at least another 6-7 dancers and up to four kittens, so I'd love to hear what you think I should fold for this. What do you consider to be part of pop culture?

Collaborations [Jun. 12th, 2014|02:44 pm]

I've been keeping in touch with the lovely ladies from the con (heck why not? XD). One of them approached me and asked if I'd like to do a collab on a dress, and somehow we got into the idea of a sketch where two girls perform a cat fight while wearing paper dresses...


The hampster's running out of breath, gotta take a mental break soon.

Interesting convention encounters [May. 28th, 2014|02:37 pm]
dark_okami
So last weekend was a comic book convention in my city. To my surprise they've invited a company of burlesque girls to do a pair of shows over the memorial weekend. The first night, I'd stayed to help clean the stage as it was late and I knew the girls wanted to leave as soon as possible. Don't ask me why, helping others is deep rooted into my nature *Shrugs*. Anyways I was asked to leave by one of the gals because I was the only one cleaning any as this was this was their first convention to do their shows weren't really used to people stick around. I apologized and left as requested.

Feeling bad and slightly ashamed I set to work on some crafts as a token of apology. Six roses and a pair of chocobos (two of the actresses were doing final fantasy themed skits) along with a letter of apology. I worked on 'em from 1-5am. After a small nap I'd returned to the convention and left the box with one of the girls who oddly enough was already gone and wasn't part of the previous night's send off. She gladly took the box from me after hearing the explanation and inquired if I was returning for that night's show. I said yes and went on about the convention.

Around 8 o'clock, I somehow made it first in line for the show and the gal I'd mentioned previous spots me and gives me a hug, thanking me for the box and that the other girls were touched by the origami and the letter. They weren't upset with me at all, just weirded out that someone would want to help them without any form of payback, who wasn't working for the convention (again, it's just deep rooted XD;). Above everything else they wanted to know my last name and if I could sign the origami pieces lol. I agreed and she seemed joyful for it.

End of the show, while they're giving the roll call for the show, they mentioned they wanted to give a special thanks to a friend who made them such wonderful origami roses and chocobos, and started calling out my name and looking for me. Me sitting int he front row waved at them in a slightly embarrassed smile and I got called on staged, hugged by another of the girls and applauded for by the packed house XD. I did signed the pieces and made a few more for the girls after the show was over, as well as helped them haul gear to their cars (who knew burlesque involved such heavy boxes).

The next day at the con, several folks came by and noticed me folding paper (I always carry a stack with me at cons in case I'm bored, I've given out about 20 models and have even taught an origami panel at this con). I guess it was just me folding the paper, but yeah they found me and gave me thumbs up and their "good going sir" in a pleasant attitude in concerns for the previous night. It was definitely an interesting weekend, and I've been dying to find an outlet for it, and this place was it.

The girls were amazing as they were beautiful, I've made friends with each of them. I even found a picture of them all holding their respected pieces and saying they have the best fans. It's definitely a warmth to my heart. I look forward to seeing them perform again.

A breath of air. [Apr. 16th, 2014|01:59 pm]

So one of the people I follow here mentioned that I don't post anymore (in fact, this profile was meant as a watching profile, not a posting one lol).

All that said though, I'm curious of what people would be curious about me about that I should post about.

If that last line lost you in the literary swirl, just ask me a question you'd like for me to answer. ;P

"Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book? When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know; for God is for me." ~ Psalms 56:8-9

I have secrets... we all have secrets, we all understand that there are just things that we don't want to tell others, or just afraid to tell them. The above passage is one of the few that helps me keep my sanity when it comes to a few of my own. I have multiple blogs... livejournal, xanga, myspace, deviantart, and a few facebook notes... mostly because i know of different people on each one, and yet I don't always post the same stuff on them consitently... i guess its because of the earlier mentioned reasons, too afraid of a person finding this out now or maybe its because i know they wouldn't be interested in the topics i'm talking about.

"I want to tell you so much, but you have so much drama that I don't want to add to yours"
or
"... I don't want to lose our friendship when it seems I've already lost so much of it."
or
"I know you'd just turn away from me"

How many masks have I come up to show each of my friends? How many times do I feel like I'm lying to those I trust and love? How afraid have I become to open my heart to people?

In all this, I'm glad there's someone who knows my secrets, and still loves me. Through all the times I wonder and break down, He's still there to watch over me and hold me in his arms.

This happens to be such a night, where strings on guitars get dripped in red from passionate playing.. where roses get skewered to look better illustrate a feeling...when a cold, night's rain feels more welcoming than a warm blanket.

Just goes to show - x post [Jan. 18th, 2009|04:37 pm]
dark_okami
Hmmm, haven't been on here for a while have I? I guess I haven't really had anything post-worthy that most people don't know, small world no?

I found out today a friend's bf wrote "die" on my truck, guess it goes to show that no matter how nice you can be, people are still going to hate you. Not sure what brought this about, but I am kind of ticked off. I'm letting it go only because the friend told me about it and took it off the windshield, though if it happens again or it escalates I'm going to report it.

The good news is that the jerk's going to leave town in may, honestly I'm surprise he stayed in the same complex I'm at for how long he has, but of course he doesn't care to look for another one *rolls eyes* I don't mind accommodating him in my place for the only reason that he's my friend's bf and that it... its too bad the generosity's not returned.

heh, she just I'm civil, but he's someone whose company i wouldn't enjoy... I dunno, with disregards for the fact he hates me, we like the same things, i don't see why we shouldn't get along *shrugs* why can't people let the past be past?
