Proof that Weird Little Kids Become Weirder Adults

Posted on by Carisa Hendrix in Blog Leave a comment

At the age of 2, I would apparently take my napkin in both hands, gently dab the corners of my mouth after each bite of food and replace in my lap like a tiny little miss manners. It’s one of my Dad’s favorite stories to tell and one of my favorite to hear.

The day before my sixth grade graduation the teacher had each student take turns leavening the room so the rest of the class could pick 2 qualities that best described them. These words would go written beside the photo of you that would be prominently featured in the front display case of the school. I recall it felt like forever before they invited me back in when it was my turn. When I got back they had picked kind and unique.

Little Girl Carisa Hendrix

A friend later told me that the class got into an argument over whether the word strange, weird or “freaky” best described me. The teacher mediated by telling the class that the world “Unique” was a nicer word and why not go with that.

Now years later, this full time performer and profesional weirdo is grateful for a head start at being “unique”. You do you, it’s worth it.

Fire Eater Shoot with Photographer Jt Young

Posted on by Carisa Hendrix in Fire Bug Blog Entrys Comments Off on Fire Eater Shoot with Photographer Jt Young

I just love shooting with JT, with image was actually used in the paper. Check out his blog by clicking here. There he writes,

This was an interesting space but we made the mistake of shooting in it too long. We both felt sick afterwards from the combination of mouldy dust and humidity (the insides of my nose were black from the dust…)

Hire Fire Eater Calgary

I don’t think we’ve had a change to shoot together since I got more focused on magic and illusions. I still love working with fire and there is a lot of fire even in m y magic shows now but I would love to work with JT in a shoot inspired by my magic. A girl can dream.

If you enjoy this image, you might want to check out my modeling galley that shows some of the work I’ve done over the last 6 years. Enjoy!

I just love this character. As Alice I can wander about asking children if they have seen my rabbit. It’s not long before one of them tosses on those ears and I get to play hide and go still walk. So much fun!!

This image is from stilt walking at Circle the Wagons in Calgary AB, Canada.

Perfect for buffet style dinners or events looking for ongoing casual yet thrilling entertainment. Our comical and clever script creates a seamless theatrical experience from act to act and through out your event. The show is built on a and a half (1.5) hour loop, allowing guests who may have missed the act the first time the opportunity to catch it later.

This show includes a Guinness World Record Holder, 2 award winning actor and respected specialists in both circus sideshow and magic. We are currently the only traveling Ten-in-One show in Canada.
