For The Gallery this week the theme is “Me”. To see more visit Sticky Fingers.
Until the 23 May I am not me. I am Angel, a “streetwise city whore”.
The me that is a wife, mother, two-bit blogger and housewifey person has to take a back seat whilst Angel takes over.
Angel is the character I am playing in a local amateur production of the musical The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. She is funny, tough and a single mum to her little boy Billy. Since January I have been Angel for two nights a week, talking in her Texan drawl, strutting about in high-heeled boots and trying not to cry whilst on the telephone to her little boy as she won’t be with him for Thanksgiving.
Apologies to those of you who have seen this photo before but I am shamefully showing it again as it’s good for publicity, a role which also falls to me within the society. I didn’t intend to be used as the model for the poster: the photographer and I mulled over a few ideas, I showed him my costume (complete with blonde wig) and, as time was getting short, he used me in the shot.
The phrase that comes to mind is a 1661 woman (16 from the back, 61 from the front). The wonders of photoshop and good lighting. Not bad for an old tart!
Note to husband and son: normal service will resume shortly
Note to husband only: will try and keep hold of the boots 😉
