Background Talent

Last week I worked as Background Talent for "The Mistle-Tones" (starring Tia Mowry, and Tori Spelling) an ABC family movie slated to air this December.

I did my make-up and hair at home, and when I reported to the make-up department, I was given the look-over and pronounced "perfect."  Me?  Me, who usually wears minimal make-up?  I got it right? Wow.  That felt good.

Then someone assessed my hair.  Again pronounced "perfect."  I am such a nerd when it comes to styling hair, so I felt on cloud nine after that.

Next was wardrobe.  I had to bring three options of Christmas outfits and winter attire to wear for my role as "Shopper."  The guy looked at my assortment and really liked what I was wearing, so he told me to take my winter coat off and drape it over my arm so my pretty Christmas jacket would show.

They liked my make-up, they liked my hair, they liked my clothes... I felt pretty darn snazzy!

The next day, the same thing.  Perfect make-up.  Perfect hair.

I wore the same outfit from the previous shoot since we were continuing the same scene, but this time a different wardrobe person browsed through my clothing options, and told me, "When you do wardrobe change, put this's perfect for the 80s flashback."

Uh.  Perfect for the 80s?  I wore that just a few months ago.   *pop*
