I have been performing (both onstage and off) for longer than I can remember. I started ballet at the ripe age of three and have been acting (or at least trying to) since college. Among the many things I love about performing, one of my favorites is the wardrobe. There is nothing quite like getting into costume to help you transform into character, be it in The Nutcracker ballet or a cellphone commercial (I have done both). But, who says the dress-up has to stop when you leave the stage or set? Certainly not me. As I’m sure you’re beginning to notice from my daily outfit posts, much of my clothing is highly stylized, even costume-like. Be it a schoolgirl or a cowgirl, some days I just feel like being someone else. And, as opposed to adopting a multitude of personalities, wardrobe is just about the easiest way to transform yourself. This look reminds me of an old-fashioned circus performer. Oddly specific, I know. But, hey. It’s my show.
