Lindyfest is ON.
A theme night where everyone dresses in white?
White. For the 8-hour dance in which there will be tons of people and sweating galore. WHO THOUGHT OF THIS IDEA.
Also, I’ve calculated that if I try to liveblog Lindyfest it will cost me sooo much monies because there’s no free wifi in the hotel :(
I guess I’ll be finding a Starbucks? :D
I really want to liveblog for you guys :3
We’ll be at Lindyfest! I’m really disappointed about the Internet situation, though. I couldn’t remember from last year. iPhone here to save the day!
My friend and I had a conversation last night about how (in our opinion) Peter Strom is the Gandalf of lindy hop and Skye Humphries is Aragorn.
Nerd levels exceeded.
I think we all know I’m a mega nerd. Needless to say, this tickled my fancy.
There’s a bunch of Fort Worth dancers at Lindyfest this year! Any Tumblr Hoppers present?
A few lindy bending sketches! I swear I’ll draw dapper Mako eventually ;u;
You probably all saw this one when Rebecca Brightly posted it on Facebook ages ago, but…
Bolin and Korra swingin’ it up. I predict this ship will sink by the end of the series, but I’m gonna go down with the band!
These were some warm up sketches, unfortunately I started way too late so I didn’t really warm up to anything.. :< Oh well, maybe next time.
More Legend of Korra swing dancing fanart.
Legend of Korra Swing Dancing sketch! haha I’ve read so many LoK fanfictions that have dancing in them that I thought I’d have a play with Bolin, Korra & Mako dancing in the 20’s!
Totally loving the 20’s influence through LoK, I just wish they’d given Korra a better 20’s dress in episode 4!
This is ridiculously messy, took longer than I want to admit to (I’m not very practiced at action poses!) and is very hastily coloured. May come back to it later!
<3 broody Mako!
LoK: Swing Dancing Sketch by *nastylittlethought / jeminabox
May 1, 2012
I happen to be a big nerd and also a big swing dancer. So when I find things like this…I can’t help but share. It helps that several people on the FWSDS Board are A:TLA and LoK fans, but I have to confess: I’m the biggest fangirl of them all. And if they ever release a soundtrack to Legend of Korra, you better believe I will DJ the heck outta that.
Love, Kisses, and Swing : Happy Valentine’s Day from FWSDS
No matter what day of the year it is, swing music about love can be enjoyed. As it happens, this was one of our setlists on Valentine’s Day.
It’s available for streaming here. Enjoy!
