What is your comfort food?
Good quality milk or dark chocolate.
Is your tattoo "Escapist" somehow related to the NW song? : )
I love Nightwish, but it's not related to Nightwish. :)
about the music you dance on ... ever thought about using the " System Of A Down " songs before ?!
Absolutely. I already dance to SOAD a lot when I'm practicing.
When will you visit UK again and have Meet and Greets Events?
I'm thinking of June or July of this year. If all goes well. :)
What's the most challenging thing about your photo shoots?
Different challenges with different photoshoots... Generally they're wonderful and laid back, very enjoyable, but they do have challenges. Preparing for them, for example, isn't always easy. I pack a full luggage and drag everything to the shoot, am my own stylist and makeup artist on almost all of the shoots (which means I will be at the shoot finishing my makeup and styling by myself)... and have to meet my "vision" every time. I go to every photoshoot with a perfect idea of what I desire to achieve. The challenges are what make the photos what they are, so I can't complain. :)
I would love to have You visiting us in Mexico City. Would You?
I would love to visit Mexico City one day! I have many lovely supporters from there.
so how did you come up with the " metal - belly dancing " ? ... you know i just thought this idea won't come outta the action video games like " P.O.P " and become a part of the real world till i saw you performing and made me lose my my mind laterally :D !!!
Thank you so much!
I just fell in love with metal music and bellydance at around the same time, so I decided to dance to the kind of music that inspires me, rather than do what has been done before. I started off learning bellydance with traditional music and by doing the traditional moves, then I began to fuse the dance form with the music that I prefer. :)
Are you muslim ? given that you're Iranian , well If I may ask :D
No, I am not. I am spiritual. :)
What is your favourite song to dance to?
It keeps changing... I really can't say.
just wanna say that you're so pretty and was wondering how can you keep your eyeliner and lipstick for a while without being faded :D cause i am suffering from this haha and oh happy to have you on my facebook list!
stay beautiful and metal! \m/
Thank you very much!
I use primers/bases and finishing sprays, especially for shoots and performances. I suggest primers by Smashbox and finishing sprays by Nyx. For lips, there isn't much we can do really. I suggest using a lipliner for your entire lips... something dry. It will stay on longer than a creamy lipstick.
did you make some of the outfits you wear in your videos?
I made almost all of them. :)
Have you ever traveled to Italy? You'd just blend here perfectly, you'd pass for a local beauty.
I plan to visit Italy one day. It's one of those beautiful countries that one has to visit eventually. I've been told that I could pass as an Italian, so that's a bonus. :P
When will be your next performance in Vancouver?
No performances are coming up as far as I currently know, but I will always keep people updated on Facebook if I know something is coming up. :)
If you had an opportunity of mastery of manipulation of one of the 5 elements(like the movie firestarter) using magick which one of the elements would you be most inclined too?
Never seen that movie, but I would go with Fire.
What do you like to do on a rainy day?
I like to stay home and work on Mahafsoun. Edit photoshoots, videos and publish them... interact with people and such.
What are you eating on a normal day? Are you on some kind of diet? How do you stay so super-skinny? I think a lot of girls out there envy you!
I am not super skinny, at all, actually. :P Especially during winter when I walk less and work out less, I gain some weight. I eat normally, but only healthy foods as much as I can. I eat as much as any normal person, but I replace most of the food with more "boring/healthy" foods. I've gotten used to it through the years, so I enjoy it nowadays... and get sick if I have heavier foods. I just stay conscious about the things I eat and think of the long term effects of eating them.
What do you think about Olympic Games?
I'm not following them.
What is your favorite hot drink?
Caramel macchiato, or vanilla latte. Anything sweet and with good espresso in it. :P
Are you right or left handed? :)
Why no new bellydance video?
I've been too busy with other things. :\ I traveled to England and have been preparing for a few performances and shoots. I plan to rent the studio this month, however, if all goes well... so new videos should be coming up. :)
What actor or actress do you admire the most? and why?
Keanu Reeves is one of my favorites. Apart from being an amazing actor, he is also a genuinely decent human being.
What do you use to record your covers? It sounds very good...
Thank you. I use a RØDE Microphone.
I love your shimmies! they look very strong, relaxed and just fluent. what technique do you use? I mean, it's just the hips that make the movement or is it coming from legs/knees? have you drilled it alot?
Thank you so much! I mainly rely on my thighs and knees for the shimmies. I suggest just shimmying for a while to a song you like. Growing comfortable with it, if you're just beginning to bellydance.
What did you feel when you uploaded your first bellydance video?
A little nervous I think, since I had never made and shared videos dancing before that.
What is the one aspect of your personality that you really want people to like you for?
The fact that I am grounded. I'm quite proud of that, and thankful to have loved ones around me who keep me even more grounded.
