Love and best wishes to you Always~
September 7, 2009LuLu isnt only a phenomenal designer and a badazz bellydancer, shes an Amazing friend! This little bombshell diva is packed with creativity and a beauty that radiates from her, leaving many in awe....
Love and best wishes to you Always~
September 15, 2007Borne of Fire and creative raw power, this one is an enigma to me. I met her briefly. Recorded her and the lovely Aradia. Forged a piece of art to show my editing style, then faded into obscurity for a year. She is a Goddess among mere mortals... I am enthralled to know her, and stand as ever present minion here upon Tribe... Seek not what she can bestow upon you, but what you can glean from her very nature. Such is fire, in mercurial pools... Storms and sea could not quench her blaze... Such is the Lady Lucretia Renee...
February 1, 2006Prrrrrr....... This temptress comes from another realm.
An aspect of delight and mischief, she with gypsy bells is leaning on velvet couch swearing not to smoke cloves. A true Kindred heart and I would say sublime timming. MAGICK equates, awaits, spins as we dance between the veils. We dark serpent keepers.

Nov 1- 31, 2009 SERPENTINE WILL BE TOURING EUROPE AND SOUTH AMERICA FALL 2009 WITH FAITH & THE MUSE... tour date will be released SOON!!! Tour dates for American tour dates will be released in early 2010****
:::SERPENTINE: TEMPLE DANCERS OF THE SERPENT MYTHOS:::
Serpentine is a dark tribal/butoh fusion bellydance duet founded in 2005 by Aradia and Lucretia*Renee. Presently, Aradia and Lucretia*Renee are co-founders, co-designers, co-choreographers of Serpentine; together they merge their passions of art and dark tribal belly dance in a unique exploration of self-expression and goddess devotion. Serpentine explores the ancient art of storytelling through spectacle and ritual; each performance is a living vivid painting. Along with writing unique choreography, each artist creates their own costumes, stage props, and fire dancing tools. From spring until fall of 2008, Serpentine welcomed Nagasita for the triple goddess rites unfolding with divine synchronicity.
In 2009, the rites of Serpentine open into a new aeon. As a transformative duet, Aradia & Lucretia*Renee explore the beauty and mysterious rituals of butoh: reinventing to birth the serpent mythos.
One of Serpentines missions from conception is to collaborate with different musicians, dancers, and artists. Through the creative expression and ritual honoring we become stronger supporting each others visions and pushing the envelope to create even the unimaginable… Serpentine has performed with talented artists/ musicians such as Cheb i Sabbah, Soriah, Azphodel, Jill Tracy, Paul Mercer, March Fourth, and many, many more.
We are joining creative forces with FAITH AND THE MUSE this fall, European and South American tour dates will be released very, very soon.
Serpentine also coordinates East Meets West, a community celebration of dark fusion belly dance. As the goddess is honored through ecstatic dance, our communities grow stronger. As we consecrate our bodies and the land on which we dance, we unite. Each year this event grows and attracts like-minded dancers and performers from across the states.

April 11th 2009 was INDUVIAE- Theatre and Threads- a fashion show Dark Fusion Boutique was featured in. www.induviaepdx.comTue, April 14, 2009 - 4:39 AM permalink - 0 comments
It was an honor and delight to be involved with such a fun and highly successful event. Thank you, Lisa Marie, for carefully planning and executing such a huge production.
I am very impressed! :)
I would also like to thank Tiger Lily of Black Cat Cabaret for arranging the Dark Fusion Boutique performance piece. Tiger Lily carefully coordinated with the DFB models and live musicians= The Ladyshade Duet. DFB models for Induviae were: Raven LaFey, Stashia, Tara, Liana, April, Tiger Lily, and *me*. The DFB models did an excellent job as well as the musicians! Thanks so much for the hard work= fittings, phone calls, emails, texts & rehearsals.
Also, I would like to thank my assistant, Raven LaFey, for her constant support and dedication. Thank you, Ashkelon, for all the love and support. *kiss*
And of course, I'd like to thank the Lara K, Lady J, Andrew, Scott, ALL photographers, video crew, dj's, and all folks who helped LisaMarie realize her vision.
What an epic evening it was! :)
Saturday, April 11th, 2009 Dark Fusion Boutique(me) will be featured in Induviae - Theatre and Threads. Induviae (Latin for "clothes") is a themed fashion show, where you will see the latest collections of up and coming local designers, as well as performances that will make you look at the runway with a whole new perspective.Wed, April 8, 2009 - 9:49 PM permalink - 1 comment
Complete with six designers, three DJs, its own makeup artists and photographers, vending, a performance troupe, AND an emcee, Induviae is not just another club night. This is a well organized, planned event, where you will be delighted by your senses and company.
In addition to a very compelling lineup, Induviae is also intended to give local designers and performers the support of the community. Designers featured in Induviae feature a variety of clothing, from steam punk to versatile city wear, and from elegant lingerie to goods that would make you a hit at Burningman.
Add a touch of the bizarre, the macabre, and the exotic, stir well, and drink!
Induviae will be a night of splendor and beauty – attendees are *strongly* encouraged to dress to impress. Don't worry, there will even be a coat check to house your wrap whilst you dance, ogle, and consume the libations and liquids of your choice.
