But Endi, you're probably thinking, don't you dress up all the time? Don't you love it?!
It's not that I don't love dressing up, it's that there's pressure to dress up. I'm that kid who loved playing the piano when I was growing up, until I started being required to practice. I love moving my body and working up a sweat, but I hate having to go to the gym. I dress up all the time, but I like coming up with unique and nontraditional costumes that take months to prepare. It's a big effort.
....and that's why I am always elated to perform at HOWL! I get to spend a month, or more, getting inspired and excited about costume ideas with my best friends, collecting fabric and props, crafting, and eventually spending one night dancing the hell out of it.
This year I'll get two nights of dancing the HELL out of stuff because Saturday night, tomorrow, is Get on Up ("Monster Mashup" Halloween Party) Nov 1st w/ TAKIMBA, Dj Saucy & Redi Jedi $5
And then of course I'm going to remind you that this inspiring and motivating and planning and creating that I love to do is, in part, with your support: my loves in Cloud City Circus and I want to do this MORE and BIGGER and BETTER ... for us, sure, but also because we want to share our exuberance and talent with you on a BIGGER and BETTER stage! Please do donate -anything at all! - to our indiegogo fund! We are just over halfway there, but we've only got two weeks left!
