Still feeling "Fresh"!

3:32 AM

May 4, 2010

Today was day 1 of of week-long performance (May 4 - 8) for the freshie orientation held in school. Since colleges were grouped into different days, we've decided to dance the same routine over and over. We have an upcoming major performance as guests in Groove Central's (dance school/studio) recital so we were busy studying a new choreography. Also, we only have two days a week of training so it's impossible to dance different choreo for the day-to-day student orientation.

For day 1 costume, I suggested something that (what I think) will make us look edgy like black ripped shirts with safety pin details, sexy dark denims and nice shoes (ideally boots). I got inspired by Karl's outfit here. Impression's a big thing y'all.

However, our leaders weren't really feeling it; thinking that the costume would only fit girls and would make our guys look GAY or TOO METRO(sexual). Well I think costumes should get past the gender aspect. If you look closely K-Pop male artists (who are straight) wear pink, polka dots and even florals; not to mention make-up (as in).

I don't have any stand in the decision making aspect of the org so I didn't insist anymore (oh well).
They've come up with a plaid parade. They told us to wear anything plaid with white inner and brown-beige shorts/cargo shorts.

I could have done better (I know). With tons of clothes in my closet, it is very sad that I only have one plaid polo and no khaki cargo short pants.
I do have some hip-hop pants that I use on training days but I don't have anything beige (not even a top).

I could have borrowed or something but we had no time. The costume assignment was given a day before the performance and most of my friends don't have summer classes and live far away from UP so it would be a hassle to ask for a meet-up somewhere. Spending for anything is not in my options! Saving is. ^__^.

And so, this is what I wore. Errrr... Keri lang. -_-

Pink plaid polo-shirt
Bazaar | White tank top (inner) | Floral camouflage cargo pants (folded)
Thrifted | Circa Dunks | Baller dancemates'

We waited for so long. I was surprised to find out we were performing second to the last. I thought I'd go home early. Haha. I let my dancemates take whatever pictures they want. Meanwhile, I on the side reviewed my steps. I don't want to mess up!

Waiting period...
