Wardrobe Challenges - Life Lessons Learned!

Hello My Darlings!

I am delighted to share with you my recent experience with "wardrobe challenges".

Oh yes, like most Diva's and Divo's (to a lesser degree) they do happen when you LEAST expect it!
In this case, it had nothing to do with the endearing PROP DEPARTMENT at the theatre where I perform, not my WARDROBE MISTRESS!

Enter stage it is:

Needless to say, as I found out my character had a eye infection........
Momma "GET ME OUTTA .....HERE" don't just stand there  H E L P ME!
  The Director informed me the show must go on.............."Diva get over it no more HISSY fits from you".  
I told the Director: "This is not in my contract"

Alas, I tried walking in the outfit.....and kept tripping over my 'dress'.  Frustrated, I began thinking what my human had said recently" costumes need be the right length; cassocks can be problematic in CHURCH too.. if they are too long you can't navigate up steps!!

Right , how do I apply this to my situation?  I couldn't see where I was WALKING.. or going.  Use your INTUITION AND INTELLIGENCE .   "Clear heads prevail don't they"???? 
Diva escapes to the solitude of her DRESSING ROOM!
I flew into a emotional rage, skidding into my dressing room.  After tea and cap nip I managed to get myself into character.  

I got into my character! Bringing myself into full DIVA mode. I enabled myself to get into character, drawing on my own experience with an eye infection!  I finished my play and it was a stunning performance!

 :) Hint: Darlings there are often lessons to be learned when dealing with wardrobe challenges; draw on your own experiences, work through them and keep those PAWS TAPPING! :)  You never know you can share this with your young understudy!!!  Humility keep us graceful.

See you next time...........................................wink....wink.................:)
