I made a unitard. That word makes me smile :) I think it sounds ridiculous. So usually in my head I think of it as my "hoop outfit".
|The latest trick I have learnt. It was worth the pain for the pic.|
I made this months ago when my aerial hoop teacher, Helga, was like "how about you girls do an exam next week?" What?! An exam?!! We got her to let us do it two weeks later. There were three of us and it was actually pretty fun. We all chose a song and made up a choreography and then scored each other on stuff like smiling and pointing toes and music choice :) After that Helga said we were ready to start learning on a spinning hoop (!). Now that is fun. Spinning round and round. I love the hoop - it's fun and scary. Challenging but pretty and girly. You really have to focus so it is a great way to forget about the world.

The day of the exam, a few hours before I had to leave my place, I decided to make an outfit. I found this stretchy, lacy black fabric in the cheap shop and made this in about one hour.... I wear it every week almost now. It's great because unlike a top it doesn't come up when I am upside down. Yay for unitards.
These pics are mostly from last week's class. At the end of it we were too tired to do our whole routines so we took photos instead.
