At age three, I took my first ballet class. I continued for ten years, until I became an apathetic teenager who saw performing as an embarrassment. Sometimes I wish I would’ve continued. Although I think ballet contributed to most of my insecurities, it also gave me the ability to appear confident and beautiful even when I’m not feeling so. I can hold a pose like a statue, and I have my Mother to thank for that.
I’m not nearly as graceful as I used to be, but yes I stood & walked in these shoes without help. I stumbled a bit, even so I impressed myself! They’re not like real pointe shoes at all. I think the heel made standing in them more difficult. I like a challenge, a little discomfort, and even a little pain. As long as I’m in control. ^_-
Thank you to Masahiro, for the beautiful heels and outfit. I hope you enjoy seeing it put to work! <3
