Re-Organize your Closet!

NOTE: I am not a professional stylist or expert or something this is what works for me so I thought I'd share :) yeah....

Step 1: Go through Closet and Acc. and donate, trash, or sell any thing that doesn't fit, is broken beyond repair, you don't wear, you wear 3 times a week for the past 6 years or if it's just ugly. Get a stylish friend to help if needed.

Step 2: Search styles and find yours, if you don't know look at some stores or catalogs to see what you like and how the fashion world describes them (such as if you like flowy skirts and earthy tones that would be classified as boho)

Step 3: Divide your closet into groups and subgroups using the words you found in the last step such as "Artsy", "Edgy" "High-Fashion-esque" and sub categories like trends that fit into your personal style like "Western" with a subcat. or "Denim" or
"Fringe" All words should describe both you and your clothing. "Stylish" or "Pretty" or such words do not count. :)

Step 4: Edit Closet once more.

Step 5: If needed go shopping or at least try on things that you wouldn't think of before to see how it looks on you.

Step 6: If you want to tape key colors of the season, or outfit ideas. Also if you want you can make a mannequin me (See one of my previous articles at or take pictures of what you wear to avoid double wearing too often.

Now go step into the world in your new fashionable shoes and matching outfit :)

Tips for Auditioning/Performing

This is for Musical Theater (Singing/Acting/Dancing)
~ Drink some tea with honey the day before to make sure your voice is in good condition
~ For the same reason do not whisper, yell or strain your voice the day before
~ Use Deodorant because you want to be able to dance your best
~ Stretch before Dance audition so your body is ready to move
~ Practice Lines before in different tones and styles in case they ask for different ways and so it will become second nature to adjust your style of voice
~ Do Warm-Ups in all 3
~ Dress a little bit like the character you want to be or like uniforms of the group (if it is a choir) so you sneak into the casters subliminal mind and it makes it easier for them to visualize you in that part
~ Do your very very best
~ Try method acting
~ Study the characters mannerisms and tone
~ Get to know the people you are competing/working with
~ Try to predict who will be who through process of elimination (ie: its highly unlikely a girl would play romeo or a boy play juliet)
~ Hang out with these people so the caster can see who you interact with well
~ Project!
~ Use your whole Body

Tips for Modeling
~Be Confident
~ Study up!
~ Develop your own style and look
~ Don't stick to the norm. be edgy and different (ie: most girls under 20 wear uggs, skinny jeans, and plain see through or off the shoulder tops)
~ Put your all into it

Tips for Rejection
~ It's okay to cry... but only when you are alone
~ Expect it and criticism, by being an artist, the most controversial job/hobby you are automatically putting yourself out there vulnerably for hate and rejection.
~ Don't worry, rejection doesn't mean your a bad artist/performer. It's normal it just means you were not fit for the directors vision.
~ You only make 1/45 auditions you try out for in the part you wanted*

*Trust me with this I've auditioned for over a dozen shows and plays and been in maybe 8 but only got the role I wanted in maybe 1 or 2.

Any Specific Roles in mind? Ask Below for specific tips!

It's all hers buuuuuttttttt heres a tutorial for them:

Swirl with toothpick into a design
Place nail in facing the design
Clean layer of water
