So, yet another custom veil done with no photograph to show of it. But after I ironed it last night, well, it was bedtime. And after work I had to rush off with it to dance to leave it for AJ at the studio. No photo time! But I did get to show the veil off to some of my studio friends. I got a lot of compliments on it! This veil was a deep red-orange with pale orange streaks edged with black. I named it “Dream of Pele” because it looked so much like a lava flow bounded by black rock. After displaying it to four or five people in the dressing room, I folded it back up (all four yards of it) and then my teacher came in… so I unfolded it again and got a “wow” out of her.

I was bemoaning my inability to keep up with the photography side of this hobby, and she pointed out that quite a number of pictures of my veils do exist — in photos of dancers. For example the local trio Raya Alimah has performed with three of my veils (above). So it’s possible I could talk to them and their photographer for permission to use their photo on my (as yet empty) website. And there’s also the idea of possibly having a “Vashti Veils Convention” and getting a whole bunch of local dancers with my veils together and taking pictures of them! That would just rock. No idea how we’d do it — outside might be best, in the spring? Sigh. One day.

    I'll be at ANY Vashti Veils Convention that happens, even if it's out twirling in the snow!
