Would anyone be interested in buying my dress? She’s a one year old Doire, only been worn five times. COVERED in crystals, and all the pink on the bodice is gorgeous lace overlay. Would fit around a juniors dress size 7-11. We’re asking $1,500 obo. I really need to sell her! (I’m trying to pay for that gorgeous red dress!) (Her name is Dolores) (please reblog!)

What is the length of the dress?

WHY IS IT SO IMPOSSIBLE FOR ME TO CROSS MY LEGS!?!?!? I have been on it for WEEKS with no improvement!

I’m having a hard time too:( I feel like I hit a plateau when it comes to crossing. Anyone have any help other than just drilling in front of a mirror?

Anyone going to the Long Island Feis??


theglasgowreel:

So much I want to get done before the feis on Saturday and so little time!! I’ve never done two feises so close together before! I’m SO excited though. But a I’m a little sad too because it’s my last competition of the summer.

Which feis are you going to?


Q
How do you do your poof??? It was the most majestic beautiful poof in all the land wow
A

Ohmygosh, this made my day! I’m super proud of my poof because usually my hair never listens to me (it’s super thin, fine, and straight) but for some reason it let’s me poof it! So make the perfect poof is actually pretty easy. All you need is a good teasing comb (very small teeth with a long stick at the end), good hairspray (the hairspray I use is no joke called “Got 2 B Glue” it works like no other!) and some bobby pins. I usually section out my hair about 1 1/2 inch to two inches deep and then however wide I’m feeling. I don’t make this section a square though, it’s usually like a half circle sort of shape so my poof doesn’t look like a log (pet peeve!). Once you have this hair sectioned off I find it easier to work if the rest of my hair is pulled back out of the way. Now that you only have your poof hair it’s time to start teasing! I tease my hair in many sections to get maximum tease because I have very thin hair. If you have thick hair or hair with natural body you don’t need to tease as much. I start with the back half inch of my hair and spray it lightly with hairspray and comb the hairspray up the hair. This gives the hair some extra texture and hold. Then I tease the heck out of it. I usually tease about three inches of it. Any more and then your poof will be crazy high! Then I just work my way forward and spray and tease each section. When you get to the last section, the one in the front I usually make this the thinnest section and tease it only slightly because no one wants the front of their poof to look like an animal lives in it. Once all your hair is teased gather it together. The edges may look a little rough so use the comb to smooth them out a bit. Don’t worry about making them perfect because the poof/crown/wig will hide it. Depending on the way your hair naturally parts you twist your hair opposite to that. Then you pull the hair back onto your scalp holding the twisted section. Then you smush it forward creating the poof! Make it slightly bigger than you want it because it will inevitably deflate a bit during the day. Now pin the twisted part down. Make the pins as close to the back of the poof as you can. Don’t worry if the shape isn’t perfect you can easily fix that with your trusty comb! If one side is higher than the other, stick the long end of the comb into the low side and pull up in circular motions! You should now have a lovely poof! Don’t forget to hairspray the final product! (Don’t spray too much or you poof will look hard and cracked, just a little will do because you already have all the teased hair)

Ok so yeah that may sound a little scary but I promise you it’s easy! I can’t even braid my own hair! If you want I can make a video of it? Thanks again for the compliment it really made my day 😊


Q
what wig do you wear? it is so pretty!!
A

It’s the Robyn by Camelia Rose. I tried something new this time and curled my hair in the front to add more volume near my face. The trick with this wig is to split the curls before you dance because they have a tendency to all roll up into like 3 giant curls!


luckoftheirishintheuk:

While in Dublin I was able to visit the Guinness Factory, During the tour

you were able to test taste, learn how properly pour a beer, and see the

history of the company. While walking about the third or fourth floor of

the factory, we came across one of the restaurants where Irish river

dancers were performing. I actually volunteered and was able to learn a

couple of dances. However, I didn’t think to have someone record in the

audience while I participated. But as we talked about in class, to be a

true journalist/researcher you need to keep yourself out of the picture in

order to get an non-bias story.

If you are writing a story on your experience I thought I should let you know that the term “irish Riverdancing” is the equivalent to “swan laking” or “nutcrakering.” Riverdance is a dance show featuring Irish Dance. Just like you wouldn’t call ballet “swanlaking” you shouldn’t call Irish Dance “Riverdancing.” 😉
