Oh Heartburn. Always one of the more devilish events. What else could you expect from an event in February? In previous years, we learned the joy of performing in sleet and freezing rain. Since we’ve had our fair share of performing in some pretty cold conditions this year **cough cough KRAMPUS!! cough cough** we thought we’d avoid the frigid temps this go around. Boy are we glad we did! The fire spinning of the night ended up cancelled do to the icy conditions. (The drive there and back was super fun, goodness!) For us though? The show went on! We had a loose spy theme for our costumes and performed throughout the night with some fun roving choreography. We got some great crowd interaction for this one, too! All in all it was a great night. And since we weren’t spinning fire we got to wear all sorts of fun flammable accoutrements. Bustles!!! The photos in our slideshow are tagged by the photographers, but head over to here and here to see more fun shots from the night.
This was a very Day-of-the-Dead themed Halloween for us this year. A few ladies spun fire over at Twisted Tail, as part of their 3rd Annual Halloween party. And last weekend we had the whole crew together (all 8 of us!) for some awesome spinning at the Sexton Sideshow. Friend photographers Zamani and Alexis came, too, and got some fantastic shots. What a great Halloween!
