Did I ever say HI? re-intro from Cat UK seeing as I have left Hong Kong! BODY PICS btw

Post by Wildcatfin on Sat Jun 19, 2010 7:12 am

Did I ever intro myself originally in 2008??? If not, hi i'm Cat Finlayson (the scottish one) of cats-creations.co.uk that was on a boat in HK the last 4 yrs.

Anyway, sorry not been on much for months, was emigrating back to the Uk and for some weird reason had a body or face booking every day for the 5 weeks before we left Hong Kong! As that followed on from the usual chaos that was being lead artist for the HK Rugby 7s (I bodypaint fans all day and fill in with doing as many faces as I can on 40,000 crowds in between....did my 1st avatar -now done 4!), off the cuff, tho, he was yummy!

Insane. But got a few great gigs, like I painted a hand for the cover of WWF Asia's kids magazine (Earth Hour) and I'm waiting to see a 2 page spread of spring flowers I was asked to do for Asia's big posh glossy fashion mag, like their dual-language Cosmopolitan. SCAREY but I proved I could do fashion stylee stuff and was booked for another shoot from that!

Also the glitter body tattoo thing went MAD, I was doing several a week for acrobats and shows, and was also hired to do most of the performers at the HK Pole Dancing Championships.
A pro vid was taken of 1 of them being started NB SHE IS WEARING FLESH COLOURED KNICKERS AND STUCK ON BRA CUPS (not finished in the vid and is also rough cut) http://www.youtube.com/user/CatsCreationsBodyArt?feature=mhw4#p/u/10/Jt4ZWXoW4fs
and the finished pic is

l have now set up new www so I can have more body stuff' glitter bodies on than on my old 'face/kids' ww...

Best of all I have landed a lovely 'full time' (every holiday weekday and all their special events plus any weekends I want) gig at http://www.bewilderwood.co.uk/ Pretty rubbish wage but regular pay, gorgeous setting and I can paint what I want as long as its UK wildlife, magical (fairies etc) or from the books Sir Tom wrote that he then built the park to match! Plus they are building me a special stage/ gazebo, I dress as a Twiggle (tree elf from their books) and get yummy free drinks all day.

Sigh. so, MUCH happier life wise/ health wise (clean air! actual blue sky!! an oven - homemade bread!!!) than we were in Hong Kong. Am really missing all the models/ photographers/ high profile bookings, but hey... My wee boy is just stunned by the animals and green grass he can run on at my in-laws farm...

Sadly I'll miss the welsh face body fest (best 1 in UK) as I'll be a Twiggle, but I'll still be demo-ing at the UK F&B conf and poss a few other fests too if any of you are over - do look me up! Feeling a lot less isolated now!
