Rainbow Eyes

This makeup was inspired by nature and God’s word in the scripture as my daily Bible verse of the day popped up on my phone screen.

And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant which I make between Me and you and every living creature with you, for everlasting generations: I set My rainbow in the cloud, and it shall be the sign of the covenant between Me and the earth . . . and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.” Genesis 9:12-13

Makeup is all about self expression and when it comes to bright colors I go wild with it, no limitations at all.  I love to go bold and dramatic once in a while, and today was one of those days.

STEP 1:

Starting off with .M.A.C. PREP + PRIME Fixator I sprayed all over my face and let it sit for a few seconds before applying my Wet n Wild Coverall Correcting Palette which is basically concealers to cover up all those blemishes, dark circles, or unwanted spots.Side Note: I love concealers since they have a thicker composition than foundation specially if they are high pigmented for better long lasting coverage. Then I used from Sephora’s Signature Collection 10 Hr wear Perfection Foundation  which is oil free  and it its has a medium coverage in clair light 23 shade. I find that its amazing because it doesn’t feel heavy on my face and it controls my oily skin providing a good amount of coverage and its not too expensive.

STEP 2

On my lids I apply just a touch of Urban Decay’s Eyeshadow Primer Potion; this will create a great long lasting crease free base for your eyeshadow providing high pigmented look all day. For my look I used high pigmented eye shadows from BH Cosmetics in the Second Edition 120 Color Eyeshadow Palette. Starting from the outside corners of my eyes I used the following colors of eyeshadow: purple blending into  blue and green on my left eye. Meanwhile on my right eye from the outside in I used fuchsia, orange, and yellow.

Using my Toki Doki Brushes  I dabbed my brushed on each color one by one, cleaning my brush  in between as I did each color differently I normally clean it with Sephora’s Daily Makeup Brush Cleaner. This will help to keep your eye shadow palette last longer clean from the debris of the other colors. Then I used my blending brush to blend out the creme shade above the eye and the white highlighting under the arch of my brows.  The same way you color your lids, repeat the same colors at the bottom of your water line.

STEP 3

Apply the black NYX Studio Liquid Liner along your top lid from the inside out for a perfect wide cat eye like Adele’s.  Then apply any regular black or colored eyeliner at the waterline the rest. Then apply Ulta’s black Legendary Lengths Lengthening Mascara on your top and bottom lashes.

Step 4

Add your choice of contouring (optional)

Apply your choice of setting powder; I personally use MAC Studio Fix Powder which is both a powder / foundation pigmented. Because it gives that nice matte airbrushed effect and it really prevents any oils during the day. BEST BUY

Apply NYX Liquid Suede Lipstick in Sandstorm start by outlining your lips a little from the outside of your regular lips for a fuller look and work your way in. You can always add an ombre effect by adding darker or lighter shade in the middle (optional).

Finish off by spraying .M.A.C.’s Prep and Prime Fix. This will keep your makeup last for long hours during the day all the way till night time. Depending on how much you sweat its always a good idea to reapply setting powder here and there. But for the most part it will keep your eyeshadow and eyeliner from running everywhere.  BEST BUY if you really love not having to reapply your eyeshadow all the time.

There you go! How easy was that! If you give this look a try, make sure you give this post a thumbs up and share with your friends. Make sure to hashtag #rainbowtopchartsbabe and tag me @evetzie_styles on Instagram! 😀 I would love to give you a like back.

HHN 24 in Review

I love when October comes around because that only means one massive thing for me Halloween Horror Nights or as we call it here in Orlando HHN. I was really excited this year because even though they had Walking Dead again, they also had a Halloween Housed based on Michael Myers which is one of my all time favorite classic characters. Unfortunately I had the chance to only go to four out of the eight houses due to the amount of waiting time. I would love to go again so I could experience the other four houses. I love HHN because I love the adrenaline I feel when I walk through the Houses and the Scare Zones to see the amount of creativity and work they put in.

Best GNO

                                    WELCOME to HHN 24 2014 at Universal Studios Orlando, FL. {My OOTD: Black Crop Top Dots, Highwaisted Denim Jeans- Lane Bryant,Black Vans, Red/ Black Plaid Shirt Target, Brown Bag Charlotte Russe, Ray Ban Aviators, 90’s choker Urban Outfitters, and Red Under top Forever 21. Red lips Kate Moss shade 107.}

This year was I was definitely not as impressed as I have been in previous years when it come to the Scare Zones. Honestly, I felt they lacked more actors, and they should have spread the Scare Zones throughout the park.  The Face Off scare zone was very interesting and intriguing it really is a really great photo opportunity area to take selfies,and photos with very unique creatures.

ev2.jpg

                                                             Read the disclaimer before you comment thanks! 🙂 peace!

The Purge scare zone was really cool as far the main actor they had who was dressed in a business suit with a microphone basically inviting you in to the purge and talking to guest and creeping them out. This part was cool because it reminded me of the movie I just wish they had more scare actors in your face making you want to run the opposite ways. The voodoo scare zone was pretty vague, and nothing really scary just a little fog and nothing really worth screaming for.

ev3.jpg

                                                Classic Babes in line ready for the Walking Dead House ❤

Meanwhile, the houses were the main aspect of where Universal used its budget at, as well as the costuming, special effect makeup, and other special effects to make them incredible well at least some of them. From worst to best out of the four houses I went to personally goes like this:

4.) Aliens .V.S. Predators

Pro’s: Awesome Costuming Effects on.

Con’s: Was not scary at all. No one screamed, no one jumped, it was so easy to walk through, annoying exit route having to bend under a little tunnel.

3.) Halloween Michael Myers

Pro’s: It was awesome so many Michael Myers popping out and a surprise ending I won’t ruin,

Con’s: The line of 105 minutes was not worth it honestly though.

2.) From Dusk Till Dawn 

Pro’s: Keeps you jumping and on your toes and very close to the TV version of the show.

Con’s: I wish it would have been a longer walk through or bigger house for this.

1.) Walking Dead: Prison

Pro’s: So amazing from the moment you walk in and out of it. Definitely messes with your head which makes you more vulnerable to the unexpected scare actors, and the makeup effects were pretty darn scary. Walkers everywhere so beware! Definitely the best Walking Dead house so far in HHN.

Con’s: The flashing lights blinded the f*ck out of me and I almost ended up in a cage full of walkers.

The Housed I missed were: Roanoke – Cannibal Colony, Giggles & Gore Inc, Dollhouse of the Damned, and Dracula Untold- Reign of Blood.  😦

Now from my friends point of view who have attended the other four houses they have loved the clown house, and the doll house even better. They say those were pretty scary because the make up effects, and costuming were quite horrifying and they kept popping everywhere. These two houses the time I went had the less wait time so I would say if you want to make two houses that are really quick in time these would be it. I advise that you do Halloween, and Walking Dead first because the wait time are so ridiculous from 105 minutes and up. Obviously the Rocky Horror Picture Show was great, and Bill and Ted’s Experience was not as fun as other years it lacked material, it was only funny because of Nicki Minaj, and Disney’s Frozen as well as their magic band, and the rest was just kind of pushed in your face to make you laugh and it really wasn’t even funny. But the actors were good so I give them that.  If you do go to either HHN24 in Hollywood or Universal Orlando I want to hear from you. I want to know which were you favorite houses, and scare zones. And what did you like least?

Love,

E

ARTIST SPOTLIGHT : MEET Alonso Solorzano

ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: MEET ALONSO SOLORZANO.

By: Evetzie – Evetzie’s Repertoire: Fashion, Beauty,& Style!
Alonso new3

As most of you may know within my field of broadcasting, I have had one of the greatest opportunity to be working for something that I am so passionate about which is in entertainment and music industry. I am lucky enough to have worked for a local radio station in my city that was holding a local talent search for the next rising star. Many entered and only ten remained to prove that they had what it took to perform on the big stage at House of Blues, Orlando where many popular and talented artist have played. The big prized winner won their first single to be produced by a world known producer, cash prize, and take home the title. But for most of those other contestants who unfortunately did not win the final prize won more than what they bargained for. They won the love and support of a new audience, their voice heard in one of the most amazing venues, and most of all new friendships or collaborations with memories of a lifetime.
IMG_7314

When I first heard of Alonso I had not met him properly but I knew who he was from his audition tape submission, and remembering “Wow! He is really talented”. I stood backstage finally getting a break from all the chaos and I look up and he is sitting there quite quiet but he had this beautiful smile that lit up the whole room. And he definitely didn’t look nervous to me though he had just finish his performance with a song he had composed himself “Don’t Take A No”. As I took my time eating whatever was left for the staff I had a cool conversation with him. He had this cool vibe about him, very down to earth, creative, and very passionate about his music. These are a few of the little things I picked up from him that night, little did I know I would be able to see him perform later on a concert with full on production that he produced on his own time and his team. This show titled “MY JOURNEY” was held on June 21st where he took the audience on a journey of his life from the very moment he realized that music was his passion to the up and downs of his life and making a name for himself in the music industry. I will be posting more about this event on an upcoming post later on.
IMG_7309
Alonso Solorzano
is a pop, local artist here in Orlando, FL with Mexican roots. He recently discovered about probably three years ago that music was one of his biggest passion and that it was time to pursue it, even though he has been singing for a little while now. But his family is extremely supportive of him and his music. “They may sometimes think i am crazy for doing the things i do and say but its all a part of being an individual and expressing yourself with the love of your life, which mine is music.” he expressed.

His music is mainly in the pop genre but he is personally influenced with all kind of genres. He believes that mixing one genre with others is more fun as it gives him more freedom to explore other sounds and challenge himself as an artist. Not to mention that he is so passionate about his music he wants to keep it fresh, and modern for his audience. His music is inspired by and I quote” Whatever is in my head at the moment, usually something that has clearly impacted my life, in some sort of way. I love to be passionate about everything I do as an artist.”

When asked about how can his fans or new listeners could relate to his music he said its because “I am not that much of a social person outside of my music, so sometimes when I do write I think to myself… Is this what people my age are going through/thinking….? but then I realize that we all go through similar battles in life, and the recent songs I have written were lyrics I needed to hear from someone when I went through a rough patch, example my single “Don’t Take a No” is a song I feel written not necessary by me, but my conscious telling me to never take a no, telling me that it is ok to fail as long as Ii stand back up stronger. I have met so many local artist and people who have been neglected in the industry or in their profession and I want to be that voice to help them. My goal when I started taking music seriously was not for fame or anything but to be able to have a voice and share with people my life experience to make them realize they are not alone.”

alonso
He hopes to have much success and hope that his audience will love the music he has worked really hard to create being that the music industry is such a competitive industry to break into. “I think for an artist it is very important to get to know yourself as the artist you were created to be and have discovered in yourself in order to find that success we as artist really need to feel.”

He has an EP coming out very soon with a couple of songs that he is really passionate about which are “Looking For You”, “Don’t Take a No”, “Unforgivable”, and his brand new single “Monster” . When I asked if he had to pick one song that would be his favorite or represented him more as an artist he replied by saying “If I HAD to pick one, I wouldn’t say as my Favorite, but the one that changed my way of thinking about music and life it would be Don’t Take a No, This song made me so much stronger, and it made me find myself as an artist and person.”

IMG_7176
Things you should be ON THE LOOKOUT from Alonso are that as of right now he has accomplished more than he could have imagined!

But he is also recently in the midst of finishing the latest recording for his fourth song on his EP. He will also be releasing his brand new single to “Monster” that will play around with a mix of sounds in the Pop/Rock/Electronic genre. Which is a track he feels the best work yet that his team and him has created by declaring that its his best work yet!

He is also in the process of creating a music video for his ballad “Unforgivable” , which is absolutely hands down an amazing song personally I think everyone should listen to. But he definitely is not waving goodbye any chances to perform on stage even if he is focused on the production side of his music as I quote him “As far as shows, right now I am focused on this new single, but if the opportunity comes to perform I will take it. Performing is my favorite thing to do.”
As a composer he has been influenced by great singers like Michael Jackson, John Lennon, and Justin Timberlake just to name a few. But he also gets inspired by life and moments that impact them. Some of his wildest collaborations he would love to work with if given the opportunity would be John Legend, Christina Aguilera, One Republic, Lady Gaga, Usher, Coldplay, just to name a few. He would also love the chance to play his music anywhere he loves and enjoys performing no matter where he is at as long as he gets to take the stage and give you his all.

” I want to show people who I AM as an artist to begin with, I want them to know EVERYTHING I put out is ME. No one is controlling me, telling me what to do, etc. I work so hard for what I have accomplished at a short period of time, and when people listen to me or watch me perform I want them know that it is all part of me. its not an act.”

I played FUN FACTS from ALONSO and this are some cool insider for his future fans to know 😉

What embarrassing songs might I find on your MP3 player?
Let me look…..Heartbreaker by Justin Bieber….? lol! I thought it was a pretty good R&B song when it first came out.

Have you ever thought of the fact that If you weren’t singing, what would you be doing?
Yes, I would probably be in school for the rest of my life trying to become a Veterinarian, or actually be a wild spirit do Wild Life photography.

If you could dabble in another genre of music, what would it be?
R&B, or maybe just Acoustics.

Do you have any hidden talents you would like to share besides signing, and playing the guitar?
I Play Tennis, at one point I wanted to be a Professional Tennis player, and I also teach it.

Do you get nervous before every show?
I get REALLY nervous, My hands sweat, My legs get so heavy I feel like I can even walk. But when I get on stage it all goes away completely.
What has been so far your favorite experience in your music career even if its just starting out or if you have been in it in the long run?
My Favorite Experience was being able to create my own show called MY JOURNEY. A set list of a 11 songs, dancers, props…etc. It was my proudest moment, being able to show everyone in the audience that with just passion and creativity you are able to create something big on your own.

What fashion trends or style has in influenced your personal style?
Well my personal style ranges depending on how I feel or where I am going I like to play with my look. But I feel like an artist I constantly have to see change. Well at least I do. I am very influenced by the “Rocker” look, something stepping out of the norm of what a typical male pop singer wears. Pushing style to the next level whether people like it of not. When performing I am aware the audience is not only listening to my music, but they are also watching me, so what I wear on stage has a lot to do with the theme of my performance that day. And a little insider…. I am a little weird…. when I know I have a performance one day, I dress and get my mind in a “Performer” state, where I feel like I am in the performance from the moment I wake up and step out of my room. ha ha. it works. 😉

Please show love and support to Alonso! I had an amazing time seeing you evolved as an artist in such a short time and I could not be more honored to see you grow even more. Thanks for taking time for Evetzie’s Repertoire Readers!

MY REVIEW ON TAYLOR SWIFT’S “THE RED TOUR 2013” FT. ED SHEERAN

HI FASHIONMINIES!
559957_366319170130156_160739720_n_large
SO I HAVE TO UPDATE YOU ALL ON MY LIFE AND THE “OH SO AMAZING” EXPERIENCES I HAVE ENCOUNTERED IN THESE COUPLE OF MONTHS.
SO AS ALL OF YOU KNOW I HAD PURCHASED TICKETS LAST YEAR TICKETS FOR TAYLOR SWIFT’S RED TOUR 2013 THIS MAY. AND WHY TAYLOR SWIFT ANYWAYS?… WELL MOST OF YOU KNOW I AM NOT A BIG FAN OF TAYLOR’S THOUGH I ENJOY SOME OF HER SONGS I WOULD NEVER EVER GO TO ONE OF HER CONCERTS, OR SO I THOUGHT? I AM PRETTY SURE THAT MOST OF YOU HAVE HEARD ABOUT THE PHRASE “NEVER SAY NEVER” YEAH I SHOULD HAVE LISTENED TO THAT MYSELF.

SO LONG STORY SHORT I  FOUND OUT THAT  ONE OF MY FAVORITE  AND ALL TIME FAVORITES BRITISH SINGER AND SONGWRITER GRAMMY NOMINATED  ED SHEERAN WAS TAGGING ALONG” THE RED TOUR” AS ONE OF HER OPENING ACTS. RIGHT THEN AND THERE, THERE WAS NO QUESTION IN MY MIND THAT I HAD TO GET TICKETS NOW FOR THIS CONCERT NO MATTER WHAT IT TAKE OR HOW MUCH I HAD TO PAY. I WAS SO EXCITED I COULDN’T SLEEP THE NIGHT BEFORE THE TICKETS WERE RELEASED TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC.  SO THEN I FIND OUT THAT THE TICKETS FOR THE GENERAL PUBLIC WAS GOING TO BE RELEASED A LITTLE EARLIER BEFORE 10AM IF YOU WERE AT THE ACTUAL BOX OFFICE. SO I WAKE UP MAD EARLY THE NEXT DAY NEEDLESS TO SAY I HAD TO BEAT TRAFFIC FROM EARLY MORNING DRIVERS, AND DRIVE THROUGH ALL DOWNTOWN ORLANDO AND FIND A PARKING SPACE. WHEN I GET THERE, THERE WAS A HUGE LINE AND I WAS LIKE “IS THIS FOR REAL?” AS I MADE MY WAY IN THE LINE AND WAITED ALONG WITH THE REST OF THE FANS THERE. AFTER WHAT SEEMED AND ETERNITY WAITING IN LINE FOR ABOUT AN HOUR I GOT TO THE WINDOW AND THE FRONT ROW AND VIP PIT WERE “SUPPOSEDLY” SOLD OUT ( WHICH EVERYONE KNOWS ITS A LIE! BUT WHATEVER!) SO I ENDED UP BUYING A PAIR OF TICKETS FOR $86.00 EACH ON THE LOWER LEVEL SECTION.

SO YES I WAS THERE MORE FOR ED SHEERAN THAN FOR TAYLOR SWIFT. BUT A GIRL HAS TO DO WHAT A GIRL HAS TO DO. SO I OBVIOUSLY KNOW TAYLOR SWIFT’S “RED” ALBUM AND ALL OF HER SONGS BECAUSE THIS ALBUM I THINK PERSONALLY HAS BEEN THE BEST ONE SO FAR. I THINK ITS BECAUSE ITS MORE FUN, AND IT HAS MORE SONGS I CAN RELATE TO RATHER THAN SOME OF HER OLD ALBUMS.

THE DAY OF THE CONCERT:
SO THE DAY OF THE CONCERT COMES AROUND AND I HAD REQUESTED THIS DAY OFF WORK LIKE LAST YEAR. SO ITS THE DAY OF THE CONCERT AND I AM SO EXCITED I CAN’T BELIEVE I WILL BE SEEING ED SHEERAN LIVE IN A FEW HOURS. I DEFINITELY DECKED OUT MY OUTFIT TO SHOW MY SUPPORT. SO PREVIOUS TO THIS I HAD BOUGHT ONLINE MONTHS AGO DIFFERENT THINGS SO I COULD MAKE THIS OUTFIT HAPPENED.

WHAT I WORE TO THE CONCERT:
– AN ED SHEERAN CARTOON TOP THAT HAS ONE OF MY FAVORITE LINES FROM HIS SONG “KISS ME” WHICH READS:
“I’VE FALLEN FOR YOUR EYES BUT THEY DON’T KNOW ME YET – ED SHEERAN”
– AN ORANGE TANK TO GO UNDERNEATH
– BRIGHT BLUE SKINNY JEANS
– BRIGHT ORANGE FLATS
– ED SHEERAN’S “+” ALBUM COVER HANDMADE EARRINGS
– ED SHEERAN PERSONALIZED SILVER BRACELET WITH MY FAVORITE LINE FROM HIS SONG “WAKE ME UP” THE BRACELET READS: “MAYBE IM IN LOVE WITH YOU WHEN YOU WAKE ME UP”

MY HAIR: STRAIGHT MY MAKEUP: RED LIPS AKA RED TOUR DUH! LOL

MY NAILS WERE ED SHEERAN INSPIRED & UNIQUE:
BRIGHT ORANGE WITH ED SHEERAN’S EP ALBUM “+” LOGO AND SONG TITLES AS WELL AS WITH MY FAV PHOTOS OF HIM.

SO I HAD SOME REALLY AMAZING SEATS CLOSE TO THE STAGE SIDE VIEW LOWER LEVEL GOT TO SEE “VIP” AREAS LIKE THE DANCER’S SWITCHOUTS, WADROBES, THE VIP RED TOUR AS THE WALKED BY WITH TAYLOR SWIFT’S MOM, THE DJ AREA, WHEN THEY CLEANED HER AND HER BAND’S GUITARS, POLISHING THEM. PLUS I HAVE MY AMAZING CAMERA THAT MY MOM GOT ME FOR CHRISTMAS WHICH WAS MEANT FOR THIS CONCERT ANYWAYS BUT THAT I HAD USED TO PHOTOGRAPH IN OTHER CONCERTS LIKE “pink” AND “demi lovato”. SO BEFORE THE CONCERT STARTED I MET SOME REALLY AMAZING FANS AND MADE SOME NEW FRIENDS. THEN WHEN THE CONCERT STARTED IT STARTED A LITTLE BEFORE THE TIME IT WAS SUPPOSED TO, SO PROPS ON THAT. THIS OTHER UP AND COMING COUNTRY SINGER OPENED UP FOR ED SHEERAN HIS NAME WAS SOMETHING BRYCE… I KNOW IM SORRY IM DIDN’T CATCH THE WHOLE THING BUT HE WAS GOOD.

THEN WITHIN A FEW MINUTES ED SHEERAN CAME OUT AND I WAS LIKE DONE FOR LIFE. HE WAS JUST FLAWLESS. I HAD A BIG BRITISH FLAG I HAD BROUGHT WITH ME INSTEAD OF A POSTER AND I TOOK IT OUT AND I WAS LIKE WAVING IT PROUDLY SO HE COULD SEE IT. THE GREAT THING ABOUT ED SHEERAN IS HE DOESN’T NEED DANCERS HE DOESN’T NEED ANYTHING HIS VOICE AND TALENT IS CAPTIVATING ENOUGH. HE CAN PLAY THE GUITAR LIKE NO OTHER YOU CAN TELL HE IS ART, HE IS MUSIC, HE IS A LYRICAL GENIUS. IF YOU HAVEN’T HEARD OR LIKE ED SHEERAN YOU SERIOUSLY ARE MISSING OUT ON SOMETHING THAT IS GREAT. WHAT I LOVE ABOUT ED IS THAT YOU CAN TELL THAT MUSIC IS HIS LIFE, PASSION, AND EVERYTHING THAT IS HIM. AS SOON AS HE STEPS ON THAT STAGE AND STARTS PLAYING HE POURS OUT HIS WHOLE HEART AND SOUL INTO EVERY SONG IT DOESN’T MATTER HOW LONG THE SONG IS. HE MAKES SURE THAT EVERYONE IN THE CROWD IS INVOLVE AND HIS ENERGY FILLS UP THE WHOLE ARENA. I SANG MY HEART OUT TO ALL OF HIS SONGS AS I TRIED TO TAKE AS MANY PHOTOS, AND VIDEOS OF HIM POSSIBLE. I WANT TO BE ABLE TO GO BACK AND SAY WOW I WAS THERE AND RELIVE IT. BECAUSE GOD KNOWS WHEN IT WILL BE THE NEXT TIME I WILL BE ABLE TO SEE HIM AGAIN IN CONCERT. AND HE MADE MY NIGHT EPIC REGARDLESS IF TAYLOR’S SHOW WOULD BE GOOD OR NOT. LATER WHEN HE ENDED HIS LAST SONG HE EXITED NEXT TO THE AREA I WAS SITTING AT AND WAVED BACK. 😀

HE OPENED UP SINGING “GIVE ME LOVE”, “KISS ME”, “DRUNK”, “LEGO HOUSE”, “U DON’T NEED ME, I DON’T NEED U” MIXED WITH HIS OWN COVER OF MACKLEMORE’S “THRIFTSTORE” AND ENDED WITH “A-TEAM”. WHICH WAS AMAZING BECAUSE HE HAD EVERYONE PULL OUT THEIR CELLPHONES AND WAVE THEM AND IT LOOKED LIKE GLITTERING ANGELS IT WAS EPIC THE WHOLE ARENA JUST FLAWLESS IN LIGHTS IT MADE THE ATMOSPHERE AND THE SONG JUST MORE AMAZING TO BE IN.

THEN LATER ON WITHIN A FEW MINUTES MORE I SAW THE DANCERS LINING UP AND TAKING THEYRE PLACES IN FULL COSTUMES AND I KNEW THAT THE SHOW WAS ABOUT TO START. IT WAS COOL BECAUSE BEFORE THAT SOME OTHER FANS AND I GOT TO SAY HI TO SOME OF THE DANCERS AND WAVE AT THEM. THEY STARTED DANCING TO “AMERICAN WOMAN” ALONG WITH US HAHA. SOME OF TAYLOR SWIFT’S DANCERS WERE DANCERS WHO WERE CONTESTANTS OR FINALISTS IN PAST SEASONS OF “SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE” AND I HAD RECOGNIZED A FEW. WHICH WAS SUPRISINGLY FUN.

REDDDDD

SO TAYLOR SWIFT’S SHOW STARTS AND THE “RED” SIGN STARTS FLASHING AND RISING UP. REVEALING THEN THAT SHE IS STANDING BEHIND A RED CURTAIN THAT IS KIND OF SHEER SO YOU COULD SEE HER SILHOUETTE AND STARTS TO SING HER OPENING NUMBER TO “STATE OF GRACE & HOLY GROUND” SHE CAME OUT AND HAD BLACK HIGH WAISTED LEATHER SHORTS AND WHITE LONG LACED SLEEVE TOP BLACK BOWLER HAT, RED LACE UP OXFORD FLATS WITH RED CRYTALS ON THEM, BLACK CATEYELINER MAKEUP AND IN HER SIGNATURE RED LIPS AND STRAIGHT HAIR WITH A LITTLE WAVES AT THE END, AND RED MICROPHONE IN HAND. AFTER HER SONG ENDED SHE STOOD THERE FOR ABOUT A LEGIT 15 MINUTES WAITING FOR THE CROWD TO APPLAUD AND CHEER AND SHE LOOKED AROUND THE ARENA. SHE THEN SANG “RED” WHICH WAS REALLY COOL CAUSE THE DANCERS USED RED SILK FABRIC AND FLAGS TO WAVE AROUND. SHE THEN CHANGED OUTFITS WITH A RED UNITARD WITH A RED SEQUIN OVERLAY SKIRT AND RED SILK GLOVES DID A 50’S VERSION JAZZ SOUND OF “YOU BELONG WITH ME”.

THEN SHE CHANGED THE OVERLAY SKIRT TO A LONG SILK ONE AND DID A VINTAGE INTRO VIDEO TO “THE LUCKY ONE” THAT REMINDED ME OF BRITNEY SPEARS VIDEO “LUCKY”. DEFINITELY ONE OF MY FAVORITE CHOREOGRAPHED DANCES AND THEMED SONG OF THE NIGHT.

IMG_0578

THEN SHE CHANGED AGAIN HER SKIRT FOR A WHITE FLARE SKIRT AND SAT DOWN AND SANG “MEAN” AND “YOURE NOT SORRY” AND THEN MY FAVORITE SONG “STAY STAY STAY” WHICH LATER SHE MIXED THAT SONG AS SHE WENT UP THE STAGE STAIRS THAT LIFTED IN THE AIR TO AS SHE SANG THE LUMINEER’S “HEYHO”.

IMG_0595

SHE THEN CHANGED OUTFIT AGAIN AS THE PLAYED A SLIDESHOW OF VIDEO AND PHOTOS FROM HER AT AGE 1 ALL THE WAY TILL AGE … 22!!! WHICH INTRODUCED THE 22 SONG WHERE SHE CAME OUT IN A PREPPY OUTFIT VARSITY JACKET WITH THE LETTER “R” FOR RED, BLACK AND WHITE STRIPED LONG SLEEVE TOP, AND RED SKINNY JEANS. THIS WAS ANOTHER OF THE COOLEST SONGS SHE DID IT WAS FUN, ENERGETIC, YOUNG, AND THEN DANCERS TOOK HER FROM THE MAIN STAGE TO ANOTHER LITTLE STAGE FARTHER AWAY AS SHE HIGH FIVED THE FANS IN THE CROWD UNTIL SHE GOT THERE.

THEN OVER THERE ON THAT STAGE SHE SANG ANOTHER SONG AND THEN WITH ED SHEERAN SHE SANG THEIR DUO TO “EVERYTHING HAS CHANGED” WHICH I LITERALLY ADORE, AS THE PLATFORM CIRCLED SLOWLY SO EVERYONE COULD SEE THEM. THEN HE LEFT AND SHE SITTING DOWN SHE SANG “BEGIN AGAIN” AS THE PLATFORM RAISED IN THE AIR SO EVERYONE COULD SEE HER AND IT WAS PRETTY COOL. THEN SHE SANG ANOTHER OLD SONG OF HERS.

IMG_0608

THEN WHILE SHE CHANGED FOR HER NEXT NUMBER A VIOLING GIRL CAME OUT AND PLAYED INTRUMENTALLY THE INTRO FOR “TROUBLE” WHICH TAYLOR CAME OUT DRESSED IN A WHITE UGLY VINTAGE GOWN THAT LOOK LIKE IT WAS MADE FROM PLEATED DRAPES (:) SORRY). THE NUMBER WAS PRETTY MUCH LIKE BRITAIN AWARDS PERFORMANCE CHANDELIERS, MASQUERADE DANCERS, AND THEN THEY STRIP HER FROM THAT UGLY COSTUME AND SHE IS LEFT WITH A LACED BLACK HIGH WAISTED PANTS AND COOL TOP. AFTER THAT SHE SANG “ALMOST DO” IN HER RED PIANO WHICH SHE GOT A LITTLE CHOKED UP ON… (I PERSONALLY THINK THIS WAS THAT TAYLOR LAUTNER BASED SONG…LOL 😉 ) THEN SHE CHANGED TO A WHITE DRESSED MUCH PRETTIER AND JUMPED OUT OF A MUSICAL BOX AND ITS NUTCRACKER STYLE DANCERS AND SANG “LOVESTORY”.

THE SHE CHANGED AGAIN INTO BLACK TOP WHITE SKIRT AND SANG “TREACHEROUS” LIKE SHE WAS A GYMNAST AND SHE WAS IN A LOVE CLIFFHANGER BEING HUNTED BY EVIL CLOWNS AND RABBITS (YEAH..). THEN SHE CHANGED ONE LAST TIME INTO A RINGLEADER WITH A TOP HAT AND CANE IN HAND AND DID HER BIG FINALE SONG “WE ARE NEVER GETTING BACK TOGETHER” WHICH WAS AWESOME IT WAS A CIRCUS THEMED SHE THEN CIRCLED 360 DEGREE IN A STAGE PLATFORM AND THEN CONFETTI FLEW OUT AND AROUND THE WHOLE ARENA.. AND I PICKED UP AND SAVED SOME FOR SCRAPBOOKING SAKE, AND YEAH IT WAS FUN!!
