IFE's 1 year show and clothes

The show was really solid. We did a montage, which is basically just a set of scenes that may/may not be related. It has been a long time since we did a pure montage, also since we were working on editing scenes before the height, it made for really short scenes.

The energy was really good, and everyone was strong. We got lots of laughs.. However, we did lose a bit of steam, around minute 25. We're used to doing shows that are 22 long, and the double barrel slot was 40 minutes. So phew, I felt tired in the middle of the show. However, there was a lot of fun. I can definitely tell when my troupemates are just having fun, not worrying about the show. Also, they'll say stuff on stage, and I'll crack up really strongly, and laugh louder then the audience.

People are saying I look more confident on stage. I guess familiarity does breed contempt. Not that I'm contemptous, just that I'm no longer scared shit by being on stage.

Also, I dressed all out last night. Wearing a sexy mini-dress, and really high heels (which suddenly got really painful after the show, I didn't notice during the show). And my troupe definitely treated me different. It was weird, they were much nicer to me, but  only a few of my scenes was empowering, I was a sex/wife-bot at least twice. Any of you ladies notice differences in your improv depending on your clothes? Usually I wear shirts and pants, and my troupe usually treat me as one of the guys.

but I must say, I was pretty hot last night. Love that dress. I went to Express yesterday and got 3 mini-dresses. I used to find that shop distasteful, rather mall-y. But their clothes fit surprisingly well. And those dresses were so soft and comfy and fall just right. I'm putting Express above Banana Republic.

in fact, i'm pretty sure i got hit on last night. it's been a while since some stranger aggressively initiated a conversation with me since I am in an introverted phase. ah, clothing. ah, men.

Clothes are cues, right? They transmit information to others, and depending on the other's inner translation of those cues....well clothes are like a shortcut.
I don't notice much difference on what I wear, but then again I'm in an all female troupe. But it could also be fun to try to play opposite of the cues of the clothes. Create a tension in the other players or audience.
I rarely get "everyday" opps to wear hot clothes so I like to wear rock star stuff. Though I almost never wear difficult shoes. I like to be able to move well.
I can see how wearing simple all black pants/top would be less distracting for everyone.

Yay good shows and yay getting hit on! Its nice to be hit on occasionally.
