Taking Costumes to the Next Level!

BEFORE I SAY ANYTHING: DON’T TRY THIS AT HOME!Β 

Whew! Now that that’s off my chest, how cool is Mr. Nagashima? I saw his besuited pole routine during the International Pole ConventionΒ and I was blown away! He was clothed from head to toe!Β (So, I just had to draw it.)Β Pure entertainment and that’s why Nagashima-san won “Best Entertainer” at this year’s Miss Pole Dance Japan 2012!

When I watch this routine, I really see that he’s enjoying himself. Also, when he performs difficult poses in his suit, I’m shocked, too! Something about his fun mood reminded me of Gene Kelly’s famous dance in Singing in the Rain.

Of course, we all know that skin is absolutely necessary to “stick” to the pole while dancing but Mr. Nagashima fashioned this special suit so he could have his ideal costume. It’s risky, but he makes it work! It’s really nothing you’d ever expect in the Pole Dance world which is why I thought it was a story worth telling. Tell me what you think!

    • That video was beautiful! I hate to call people “better” than others. Every dancer puts astounding effort into all their performances no matter what their level. Fantastic and thank you for sharing!

    • Hi Danielle! Thank you for letting me know! What is the LAPD facebook page? I’m so curious!

      I will follow your blog too! We can learn from each other’s experiences, for sure!

  1. During Winter, my pole room are pretty cold, no hair dryer or anything really helps, I’m too cold, my pole is too cold, the room is too cold and I feel that I preferably not will take of my clothes. πŸ™‚ My dream would be to have a larger room with 2 poles.

    I have seen that X-pole have invented like a cover, but they have to apply it to the pole and it’s not remvable. But I seen pictures with Jenyne.. 99% sure it was Jenyne when she tried tricks on the pole with that cover on, with clothes..

    I would love a pole with that cover, but it was expensive and x-pole themselves have to apply it.. :/

    But I really think I would like this “chinese pole” stuff.. something like that at least.. it would be nice with a grip even with more clothes on πŸ™‚
    and one regular pole then too of course πŸ™‚
