They're supposed to show up with hair and makeup ready.
The hair was supposed to be curly with a poof, so we used spikes which we put in last night while watching Project Runway. She's got a hairnet on over the curls now, as per instructions. For the record, rats like to steal spikes and chew them up, so I wouldn't recommend this as a group project.
And makeup is supposed to be foundation and powder, blush, eyeliner and mascara, and red lipstick. Easy peasy -- I just handed her the M.A.C. from the feis bag. Well, come to think of it, I just handed her the feis bag, which is up high in the closet, and let her figure it out.
In summary, Irish Dance made this a pretty easy evening. Curled hair with poof? Stage makeup? Give me a break -- we can practically do this with our eyes closed.
This is a closed rehearsal tonight, but we can video to our hearts content during the actual show. Which is totally backwards from Irish Dance.
(I don't have a feel for how hokey -- or not -- this whole thing is going to turn out to be, so we haven't invited anyone else to the show. Lord knows we've been to some hokey shows of this type before.)
