raindrops on roses + whiskers on kittens
i've awoken this morning to the startling realisation that there is sunshine outside and the globe is indeed still spinning. my body feels like i've just had a baby, and my head is full of candy floss and song.
last year when i said "yes" to being Head of Wardrobe for our skool's production, The Sound of Music, i had absolutely no idea what i would be in for - an epic, intense, extreme, all-consuming adventure dressing a cast of 53 in multiple costumes that fit (!) and getting a last-minute backstage team together to execute 23 speed-changes side/back/top of stage in the dark, dodging props, fly-guys, set crew and exiting nuns - while also being the chief costume fixer-upper, sailor-suit soaker + calmer-downer for little-people's meltdowns. in the last week we've consumed one and a half bottles of rescue remedy. i've never been so stressed out in my entire life.
it really was a Von Trapp Family affair - Joel played Friedrich, Sam played Rolf (and got his hair blonded for authenticity!), Raych helped make costumes + fast-change kids and Fraser was Stage Manager. oh! the adrenaline rush!!
and we rocked it - the whole team rocked it. three months' focus + energy + every single emotion was worth it. i just have to figure out what to do with this huge flossy void in my head now that it's all over.
