BD Vlog: 09 Tray of Fire Prep



Setting up new candles on my balancing tray. I will dance with this on my head with the candles lit at the next Greek Night. My camera battery dies at the end and I had no backup batteries. I decided to post the video anyway.

Pre-light test

I also decided to bust out some of my pro costumes for Greek Night. I normally wear a generic bedlah with random homemade skirts and mix and match costume pieces. This is the 7yr Anniversary so I thought I'd bring it up a notch with the really nice costumes.

Gypsy you can check Shira's directory for teachers in AZ at http://www.shira.net/directory/dir-us-az.htm.
As for beginner swords, there are tons of options online but I suggest buying one at a vendor or workshop that you can physically try out before purchase. Trays are easier to find at thrift stores. I found mine at Hobby Lobby. I recommend Queen of Flowers with Neon for tray basics and practice.

Am I the only one who got a little worried for you when I thought about the lighter and the hairspray and your head?
