I received an e-mail from Asha yesterday saying that she'd have a small performance. Since public performances is a rarity for Asha (and for me too, actually since I am on hiatus), and I missed her performance at the A. R. Rahman concert, I just HAD to go. That weekend, I believe was the same weekend I had performed at Florida Supercon. Feck.

Now, to those of you who do not know Asha - Asha is an internationally renowned dancer and has even performed for Shahrukh Khan. She took me under her wing some time ago and acted as my agent/mentor, and helped to boost me up in the Bellydance world when I came back from Japan. I fangirl adore her greatly. To those of you who are otaku and would like an analogy, Asha is like.... my Gai-sensei. Except, unlike Gai-sensei...she is very, very tiny.

GAI-SEN--.... ASHAAAAAAAA!!!11....

So, I helped her around as she prepared herself. We chatted. Chatted some more. I ate 2/3 of the refreshments provided.
Due to the fact that I had donned a shalwar kameez, I found it amusing how I was being asked if I were the dancer who performed that night. Because I am so blond. *points to the left*

...And I took an absolute crapload of pictures. )

...So, apparently, I should be going to perform the Guedra with Asha in Florida at the end of this month, and in September. YAY!!

It was certainly time for a big change.

Please press F11 to better view my new layout! This background was just something I made while playing around with Photoshop and one of my professional shots. I also created the brushes and whatnot...

Anyway, this new layout commemorates my


Florida Supercon 2007!
My first con performance ever since I came back from Japan! My beautiful, wonderful protege and new partner, Raihn, and I gave the panel at 5 today (Sunday at 5)...and NEVER did we think that it would be such a huge turnout. Especially since hardly anyone could get a hold of of the convention schedule for Sunday... In any case, and surprisingly, before we knew it, there were a whole crapload of people lined up to the entrance to get into the panel. ^^ As they filed in, the room was getting so overwhelmingly crowded that we had to begin seating people on the floor, and we had to close the doors on the rest of the crowd. The panel was unplanned and everything done impromptu, but it was a huge success, nonetheless. ^^ I will be showing videos soon. And speaking of which...

Also, my SnJ Rock Lee cosplay was a huge hit. I was late to almost everything I had to attend because I was constantly bombarded to take photographs...and by fan.....girls. O_o. Also, due to rushing - and general laziness, I did not bother to change into my bellydance attire for the panel. Therefore, the panel was held with me as SnJ Rock Lee. With bellydance jewelry ^^.

Afterwards, we, meaning Mell (quite a few of you may know her from SH, and she is now my self-proclaimed manager ^^!), her friend, 'Mike', Miss Raihn, Heather and Sarah from Dragonmun Studios (who we also travelled with), Christopher Ayres (Voice Actor/Director/ect.) of http://www.christopherayres-va.com/, Rikki Simons (Voice Actor, mostly known as the voice of Gir from Invader Zim) and his wife, and I went to eat out at Bennigan's - a restaurant I never knew even existed ("with really crappy service" - Raihn). Our food arrived a few days after we placed our orders. That may or may not be an exaggeration.
