Bodypainting at Beltania 2009

2nd Annual Colorado Beltania Festival: Tree Leaves’ Bodypainting

www.beltanefestival.com * Parrish Ranch * Outside of Fort Collins, Colorado * Living Earth aka Highlands Ranch Pagan Meetup *

Friday-Sunday, May 8-10, 2009

It was a last minute decision for The Tree Leaves’ Oracle to decide to show up to Beltania 2009, and while pretty sure that entering as a last minute merchant/venue wouldn’t fly, they figured they would try it anyhow. Of course, merchant row was too full, so it was just camping and festival fun. I decided to setup the camp anyhow, a place where people could come for free to paint themselves or get painted, just like we do at Apogaea and Burning Man. We were having too much fun running around dancing, frolicking, swimming, and merrymaking, but did get a few dynamic designs in … here they are ….
