Updates: Becoming a Belly Dancer & Vlogging Challenge
I’m pausing to take a quick breath! I’ve been working harder than ever in my entire life. I’m part of the team putting together the upcoming book “Becoming a Belly Dancer: From Student to Stage.” This is 402 page text book tackles the art of stagecraft. I’m in charge of the book layout and I’ve been working on it daily. The end is near! Here’s a few of the most recent finished layouts.
I’m still working on the #31daybellydancemakeup vlogging challenge. I’ve been learning how to shoot vlog-style videos and editing them all on my cell phone. Although this has been quite a challenge, and more time consuming than I would have expected, I am managing to work on the channel. Keeping up with the editing and uploading has been the biggest hurdle. Putting on makeup and filming the footage takes about an hour. Editing, however, can take hours! Some of the videos show the struggle of learning, but they are getting better! Here’s my favorite so far.
Since several people have requested demos on how I build up my turbans, moving forward from here, I will be incorporating those techniques into my vlogs.
Keep your eyes open for the upcoming Kickstarter campaign, to help us raise the funds for our upcoming first print run.
