I'm a rock star!

Well, no, not really.

Saturday, I went to go be an extra in a music video. My primary motivation was an excuse to dress up in my neovictorian clothes, since they're too warm to wear to clubs (can't dance in that much velvet!).

When I got there, I was asked if I could run in the boots I was wearing (picutred in the icon above). I said yes. I was then told that I was to be the star of the video, most of which consists of me running while wearing pointy toed boots and a black velvet frock coat. I had a lot of fun, though I was limping pretty badly yesterday. Not good boots for running! I would still have done it, though, if I had the choice. Too much fun!

Serendipitously, there was some kind of anime doll society meeting where we were shooting, so we snagged a couple of the kids from that as extra extras, and got some nice shots of creepy dolls.

All told, it was about five hours of running, on and off. Not good for my feet and legs, but totally worth it.

I will post the video once it goes up wherever it's going up. If you think it sounds like fun, they're doing another on on the 13th. I don't think I'm going to be able to make it to that one, but if anyone on my flist wants to borrow some clothes, let me know.

That's freakin' awesome!!! Grats! We realized that we didn't have anything except a jacket for Myke, and nothing for me. Though, now I'm scouring the web for fashion ideas.

That's pretty sweet! Can you tell us what band/song the video was for?

The band is Abney Park; I think they told me the name of the song, but I managed to forget it.

That's so cool!

I'm picturing you channeling Brand being chased by Gerry and Randy or something for some reason.

I tried to send you an email this morning, but my computer swears that memento-mori.ca doesn't exist. Too bad.

Life is very hard.
