“Life is a great big beautiful three-ring circus. There are those on the floor making their lives among the heads of lions and hoops of fire, and those in the stands, complacent and wowed, their mouths stuffed with popcorn.~Christopher Hawke
Welcome to my circus. I didn’t run away with it. It came to me and never left. I spin and dance with fire…I breathe it. I hoop and Go Go dance and occasionally I like to wear that same costuming for modeling.
Keymoon Photography and I shot these near a construction site in Greensboro,NC. And yes,the construction workers found what we were doing to be way more entertaining than what they were doing.
“When I was little, my mother told me there are basically two kinds of people in the world: town people and circus people. The kind who stay are town people, and the kind who leave are circus people.”
I made the top hat myself from netting and adorned it with birds and flowers. The corset came from Charlotte Russe and the gloves were bought on clearance from Claire’s. For the skirt I split open a long flowing skirt from Goodwill and connected it to a shorter skirt.
The hoop behind me is the first one I ever made. Ohhhh how I loved it 🙂 Purple and blue!
“The circus had been unlike anything I could ever imagine and I could not walk away. I wanted to be a part of the magic, create it and wield it with such skill that it looked effortless. I wanted to fly.”
Hope you all are having a fabulous week! It’s a beautiful Autumn day here in NC and finally feeling like it at 69 degrees and sunny.
Until next time…
“If you surround yourself with clowns, don’t be surprised when your life resembles a circus.” ~Steve Maraboli
