Medusa, tree-like hair

Once again we are volunteering at the Skaneateles Middle School for the play. This is my 4th year and I LOVE to do it! I wish I could (I say this every year) really bring a video recorder or energy recorder to show you how much fun backstage of a middle school play actually is...IF I would have known what I know now, I would have done drama way back when...Although the good energy and camaraderie may just be Skaneateles. Tonight when I went to the costume area to take some photos, all the kids were listening to Michael Jackson's - 'Beat it!'..and dancing, it was so contagious, I had to escape out of that room, before I started bustin' a childhood routine we used to do to that song...NOW that would have been embarrassing!

What I absolutely love the most about doing the plays is, that all the kids, no matter what their inside school personalities dictate, they all are there for the love of drama and they all are nice to cliques..just drama students..all the same....It's really great!

So I decided to post these pictures, under this title, because before doing the play, we were told that we had 8 "tree's"...and they wanted them to have crazy..medusa like hair. Sam and I both googled - 'medusa hair', 'medusa tree hair', 'hair to look like tree branches', and didn't really get much help. We improvised and Sam being the master teaser she is, whipped up this first tree hair. Everyone loved it and we both breathed a sigh of relief, knowing we nailed it!

For those of you far away, (in the NICE warm weather) I hope you enjoy the photo's, if I ever could figure out how to get a video on this, I'll post one, I'm working on it!
