Acting camp is epic (: I'll write a long post about everything eventually, but for now I'll be brief. Each day at camp, there is a theme ( Crazy Hair Day, etc. etc. ) Today just happened to be team color day--and my team color is ORANGE. Which, in my opinion, is a terrible team color because nobody owns any orange. Anyway, everyone at the acting camp goes all out for these spirit days, especially me. Last night I was over at Mathilda's and we were mourning over our lack of orange clothing when we formulated a brilliant plan--we would (temporarily) dye our hair orange. We walked down to the party store, but unfortunately it was closed. So we went to Rite Aid but they didn't have orange hair dye or orange eyeliner or makeup of any kind--it was then we stumbled across the orange poster board. . .and decided to make orange sandwich boards.
So we went back to Mathilda's and decided to print out pictures of orange things to paste on our poster boards that we would make into sandwich boards. Except for both of the printers in Mathilda's home were not working. So someone suggested we walk down to the library and use their printers to print out orange things--so we did. However, at the library, THE COLOR PRINTER WAS BROKEN. We looked down at our black-and-white pictures that were not orange at all in remorse. So we spent two hours coloring them orange--all in all, our orange sandwich boards took us a few hours to make!
We wrote our team name (The Terrifying Tumbleweeds...YEE-HAW!) and glued on orange things (our orange things consisted of the strawberry-blonde Anthony Rapp, Ron Weasley from Harry Potter, Charmander the Pokemon, and a picture of Angel wearing orange clothes) Here was our very orange results:
Also, my friend Nathan whom I haven't seen in a year BLEACHED HIS HAIR BLONDE. It looks so weird. We asked him why he did it and his response was, "I have brown hair--and you can't dye brown hair pink. So I bleached it so I could dye it pink" And he did dye it pink. . .so now it's blonde with a touch of pink. The Legally Blonde joke's I've spewed out over the past two days are endless.
In the afternoon, we break into small groups and we're each performing a scene from Peter Pan. In my scene, I am Peter Pan--only because I am older and more experienced then every other person in my group. All my friends are split up into different groups--the insanity! Last year we did Antigone, and I was older than most people in my group too. It was me and Nathan and a bunch of ten-year-olds.
I'm starting to ramble so I'll write a post about everything one day. Just some highlights for now. Tomorrow is MISMATCH DAY! That is my favorite day of the whole year--I am so excited. Pictures promised.
