It was perfection! The costumes, the choreography, the dancers, the MUSIC. Filled my hear with ultimate joy. My previous post on Cinderella (2015) AND this year’s performance by Ballet Manila, has made Cinderella my ultimate favorite princess. This was Ballet Manila’s first take on the production, with original choreography from no other than Lisa Macuja-Elizade (she also played the Fairy Godmother!) Click here for behind the scenes!
I brought along my mom and dad for the first time, and they LOVED it! My brother also enjoyed the detailed set designs, pointing out the moving hand on the clock about to stroke midnight! This production is by far my favorite, and I am so proud of Ballet Manila. They bring the best of ballet to Filipinos!
I had a Cinderella inspired outfit. Basically, I realized I had a dress that matched the Cinderella shade. Added pearls and a black ribbon and my favorite black coat.
Have a look at my video of the show:
Oh the happiest place on earth it is. Childhood dreams still drift in the land of imagination. The smell of freshly popped popcorn, sugar coated churros and the sounds of familiar Disney tunes gets me all amped up.
My favorite Disney princess is The Little Mermaid and I was so happy to find this day dress from Hot Topic with matching bow. I got so many compliments throughout the day from staff and fellow Disney lovers around the park.
I used to have long red mermaid hair, but sadly I have to let my locks rest of the bleach and heavy dyes. So I went for some red pieces to make the look more ala Ariel. I found a great belt from a vintage store on Montrose in Glendale called “Patty’s Closet” for just $10! The sparrows really give the rockabilly look.
Isn’t the teal color perfect? And look at the print! Suttle character silhouettes making the dress not so tacky.
I did a wet-set for my hair the night before so my curls would last all day! Following a specific pattern gave the 1950s curls.
A dream is a wish your heart makes. ❤
