A Thanksgiving Day Update/How To Do A Bun Video Tutorial

With Nutcracker in full swing here at Maine State Ballet, things are crazy. We've loaded into Merrill Auditorium in Portland, Maine and I've made myself quite at home... As you can see!
Yesterday was my first dress rehearsal as Sugar Plum and before the run I received a very special gift from the artistic director. Needless to say, it made my day.
Other photographs throughout the day:
Sewing shoes for that evening
Hair + makeup time
The (sweaty) finished product (accompanied with my stunning sister, Adrienne, as Clara)

Everything's going well thus far! Yesterday was great. Eager to start this weekend, but for now it's time to give thanks and to eat until our costumes won't fit anymore!... (Just kidding, I've already had enough fittings for that Sugar Plum tutu to last a life time!)

With this performance season we will all be devoting a lot of time to our hair and makeup. I've put together a little video of myself doing a rehearsal bun. Please note: this is not a performance bun and I do not do that swoop with my bangs for a real show. Usually, I plaster them back flat for a more classical look. But when you're in class or rehearsal it's always fun to add a little personality to the very uniform look of a ballet dancer.

Let me know what you thought in a comment below or if you have any questions you can e-mail me at: Rhiannon@maine.rr.com. For a further look into the Maine State Ballet's Nutcracker you can find us on Facebook right here!

Thanks for reading, my lovelies and HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
