Sequence #1 – Ballet

Black SwanThis post ended up being a lot of things all rolled into one.

I’ve been having so much fun taking photos in costumes, and I came across my Black Swan costume from Boudoir.

I love it, but just never got around to using it in a routine.

So I decided to go take some photos in it.

While I was taking photos, I began hunting around in inventory for an old ballet sequence I could use in the photo shoot.

Then I decided I would post the sequence.

But I wanted to do a short little video, so that everyone could see what the sequence looked like.

Hubs and I got to talking and he wanted to upgrade our video editor/recorder.

So while he spent hours finding the program he wanted, I got busy taking photos and getting a quickie little dance put together.

I’ll include the details for the outfit at the bottom of the post.

The sequence was originally set to other music, but I think it turned out pretty well for something I threw together in a couple of hours.

Kisses to my sweet husband, who shot the video and edited it for me. ❤

  1. Beautiful! I am a huge fan of ballet in RL. Ballet dancers have such perfect control over their bodies and their movement.

    When I first got into doing SL photography I did a whole series of ballet photos. I searched high and low for ballet poses and have so many of them, but they mostly had some ugliness in one angle or another. I didn’t photo edit then whereas now I’d just probably liquify the awkwardness out of them. I remember when Rogan Diesel released his ballet poses and gave away two free outfits from Bare Rose with them.

    The ballet dances have improved so much as well. I have a lot of Abranimations but I have not looked at MyAnimations. I hope you’ll share that dance on stage some time.

    1. Ballet dances were one of the first animations I started gathering when I started dancing (that and belly dances!) – I love ballet and I get a thrill each time I do a ballet number. It makes the little ballerina in me sooo happy. 😀

  2. Very pretty Kat. I love the ballet dances in SL, I wish they would do even more. I like to use them to “un-ballet” music too, I’m a fan of the dichotomy of the music and the dances. I miss the spirit ballet shop, I have some beautiful costumes from there. Now I feel the need to break them out and create a new dance for them.
