DR Review

Things learned tonight:


  • If I use primer on my eyes before putting on eyeliner, it will actually not run, even with the amount I sweat when dancing!

  • I can dance all night in a gi top, because it breathes well. Unlike my old Darth Maul tunic made from heavy polyester.

  • I've learned a lot about sewing since I made my long Sith robe for Hallowmas. I spent some time this afternoon going over it, zigzag stitching the seams and reattaching the sleeve I put on inside out the first time. I put it back on inside out again, but now it's harder to tell since the seams are finished better.



Questions pondered:

  • Is it acceptable to glowstick to Industrial/EBM if you're doing it at Dark Rave?

  • If the dance floor is entirely empty, does it become acceptable to violate the normal politeness rule about not throwing high kicks on the dance floor?



I dragged myself out to DarkRave this evening, and had a pretty good time. I think a fair number of the more hard core out of high school Dark Rave crew were at BM or something similar - the crowd was a little thin, and there seemed to be fewer 20-somethings; lots of kids and a fair number of the old guard. Holy Joes was Industrial/EBM all night, so I spent most of my time up there, wandering off to glowstick occasionally in the more air-conditioned room to change muscle groups for a bit. The downstairs wasn't bad music-wise, but the crowd were not my people - I haven't seen that much white under black light since... ever.

In any case, that was a good night out. Now, I should go to bed.

Primer is my new best friend.

In answer to your questions, yes and yes. Empty dance floors are made for high kicks and twirls.

The back room at Panic next weekend is old-school goth and deathrock. I'll be there in full regalia. See you there? :)

Off at a party this Sat., so no dancing for me this weekend.

my personal philosophy is that as long as you aren't nunchucking people in the face with them, you can glowstick all you wanna. :)
and kick all you want to on an empty floor, just make sure you stop when people get near.
