Fact #133: My butt is about to triple in size

I had a costume fitting this afternoon for Hobson's Choice. I lurve my costumes!!!!! They're beautiful, they're rich, they're like a time portal made of fabric. It's pretty impossible not to walk and carry yourself differently wearing these period costumes.

Since I was getting fitted and there were pins getting stuck everywhere and I was trying to act like a professional, I resisted the urge to prance around like an idiot. But just barely. It's so exciting!

I wear three different dresses throughout the show. The second two have bustles. And these bustles are not to be trifled with. Seriously. I'm gonna have to learn how to navigate the world wearing those things -- I could end up taking out a piece of furniture or a fellow actor with my ass if I turn around too fast!

Note to self: control your butt.

Til tomorrow!
