On top of that, she was bringing two friends with her to fill in as background guards, and we'd never met either of them. So we had three people coming in who we basically didn't know, and we didn't know if we'd work well together or even get along. They might be awful people. It happens. Plus, we'd never gotten the chance to do a fitting of the costume, so we weren't even sure if it would fit on any of the girls. Or... y'know... look good all put-together.
Turns out we needn't have worried. Madeline was perfectly lovely, her friends (Taylor and Viv) equally so, and the costume ended up fitting all of them quite well. Since Madeline was with the having of the line and all, and the costume was made specifically based on her sizing information, we started with her. We got to shoot a cool little piece with Madeline standing guard and experiencing the perplexity caused by a horde of monkeys with wings swooping in and dropping a little girl and her wacky pals.
|I feel as though my training left me unprepared for flying primates...|
|The only thing more Spartan than her costume is the set...|
|One can tell from her manner that this guard is suffering from plume envy. Y'hate to see it.|
|Does it count as a close-up if none face is visible?|
It's nice to write an entry about a day that went exactly as it should have... I won't let myself get used to it.
