So I’m frustrated. I need to find a creative individual or team to create clothing designs for me. I’m looking for a stage wardrobe that is a cross between Pagan, Goth, Steampunk, & Carny.
All I find on the internet is Renaissance clothing (not what I’m looking for!), and if I find Goth clothing it’s mostly for women and very little created for men. Also the sizes that are available for men, are for skinny guys… which I’m not.
Therefore… I’m putting the call out to any and all Fashion Designers who would like to create stage clothing for a Pagan recording artist and have their name repeated all over the Pagan world… world-wide. And of course! I’ll pay you for your services as well!
The idea is for people to submit ideas, drawings, and if I see something I like, you will be in the running!
All designers “in the running” will be entered into a contest where my fans will vote on which designer(s) to go with. (Note… I used an “s” at the end of the “Designer”.)
Who will step forward and ride this Pagan journey with me… as my personal wardrobe designer(s)?
Please email me or comment below.
Sunday the 23rd of July! 18 days, and almost 3,500 miles later, I made it back to Orlando, FL! Home Sweet Home!
Let me tell you… the end of the tour started to become a blur. So much driving, and meeting so many people, and being so tired = Blur.
But it was all a blessing and completely enjoyable. I even caught up on my Podcasts on my Ipod while driving in the car. (I played them through the car stereo system through the AUX Input.)
It was completely worth it, I met so many wonderful people, and I can’t wait to do it again….
…. but I think I’ll rest for a while 1st!
Hugs to all !
Now where’s my pillow!
I left Indianapolis, IN around 10pm on Friday evening the 22nd, and drove to Nashville, TN where I got see my friend Carissa from college. I only got to sleep a couple hours there, and then it was up and on the road again to complete my drive to Atlanta, GA!
I had to be in Atlanta, GA by 3pm on Saturday! I taught The Magickal Voice workshop, broke for a quick bite to eat, and then set up for the concert at 7pm.
I was so tired this day that I completely lapsed on photography! I only had a couple hours sleep the night before and approx 533 miles of driving! It was a long 24 hours to say the least!
Thank you Sherry & John for having me into your lovely shop! I appreciate it!
A special thanks to Natalie, who took me in and lent me her spare bedroom for the night!
I arrived in Indianapolis, IN about 1 to 1.5 hours before the concert time. I was greeted by an energetic fairy who quickly escorted me into the shop to Jan, the owner. I was then taken on the tour.
The Magic Candle is what a Metaphysical store should look like. Built into a historic building, it has exposed brick wall, herbs, books, & curios everywhere… and cats. There were several very well kept beautiful cats living there full time, but there were also several young kittens underfoot playing in and out of every crook and cranny. Being a lover of Bast, I loved it! “It’s a Fluffy!”
I only got to take one photo on my phone, because it had died by this time, but I should be receiving some more photos from the shop owner, Jan, soon. I will edit and add those photos at the end of this post when I receive them.
The little room I performed in was packed with shining faces, and everyone enjoyed the music and the silly stories I tell.
I played one special song that I don’t always perform called “The Crone Chant” for the birthday girl, Rita, who was just celebrating coming into her “Crone-hood”. I put her into the middle of a circle of people and we all danced and sang to her! She loved it! Especially when we called her the “Bitch Goddess!” (It’s part of the song.) Happy Birthday Rita! Be careful where you point that newly claimed Crone finger!
Velda enjoyed belly dancing to my new song “Death’s Lullaby (Let the Shadows Still the Light), and is an energetic smiling soul!
A special thanks to Jan, owner of The Magic Candle, for booking me last minute on the tour. It was wonderful meeting you and your beautiful community of Pagan peeps, and I look forward to returning again in the future!
On Thursday, July 21st, I left Kansas City, MO and drove to Saint Louis, MO where I spent the evening with my dear friend, Jackie, from college. It was great to see her and visit. In my rush, I forgot to take a photo of us on my phone for my blog. 🙁
I snapped the above photos of the Saint Louis arch on Friday morning when I was leaving Saint Louis on my way to Indianapolis, IN.
In this photo, I am crossing the Mississippi River just outside of Saint Louis, MO over into Illinois.
… When I rounded the corner to the shop, I saw a very large RV BUS!
She is such a sweetheart to provide such an amazing place for me to sleep in while I’m in town!
If you are coming to the concert tonight, our the Magickal Voice workshop on Wednesday night, you’ll see what I’m telling about, because it’s parked right infront of her Amazing Shop!
Amethyst Dreams is located at 412 E 18th St, Kansas City, Missouri, currently (at least this week) behind the big RV! Lol!
Yesterday (Sunday) was a big day for me. I got up and had breakfast with family in southern Missouri, then said my goodbyes, and drove north to KC. Upon arriving at Mystic Treasures, I immediately set up for the Magickal Voice workshop during the hottest part of the day… It reached 100 degrees!
The workshop went very well, and you could tell I had their minds working on how they were going to apply it to their practical lives.
The concert was later that evening and was blessed by a family of 3 who traveled over 3 hours to be there and meet me, Marcus, Mitch, & Lynn.
Also in attendance was Angel & Randall, Alexian’s self appointed biggest fans!
It’s HOT here in Kansas City! It’s hotter here than it is in Florida! So even though the concert was cool, I was soaked with sweat by the time we got all the equipment loaded back into the car.
Thanks to all that attended, including Dawn, & Carl. By the way.. Dawn, thank you for my spontaneous reading!!
A heart felt thanks to Penny & Leann for hosting me in their beautiful store, and special thanks to Marcus, Mitch, & Lynn for driving over 3 hours to come see me!
Eternal Hugs to Angel & Randal!
Later, I drove into downtown Kansas City to Amethyst Dreams for my next gig. Aislynn was providing me an RV to sleep in during my 4 day stay in Kansas City. But when I rounded the corner to the shop…. (to be continued)
