Howl, that’s enough bread now.
Howl no I said stop!
CHRIST HOW LONG IS THAT LOAF
For me it got better with time and repetition. I don’t think any performer goes out without some adrenaline. It helps.
But even with as many shows as I’ve done…there’s still that little hang up. You’ve just got to use it. Eventually you can find your swing. I find it helpful if I can work in some improv with the audience. There’s this…”ice breaking” of tension for me if I can jump down off stage and let my busking instincts take over. I’ve only very recently started doing that INTENTIONALLY at shows…but when those moments happen and I’m cracking up an audience member and on their level…it always helps.
If you’re talking more like theatre performances…it’s difficult if your character isn’t addressing the audience. I lived and breathed my lines and off stage before I went on- I went through my characters actions when he left the scene. Anything to draw from. Because there can’t be an audience- the audience is the other characters. Depending on how your character interacts with people it can be wildly different.
I played the “bad cop” in the Pillowman years ago. I was knocking this actor around…(pretending to at least…except for this one time when I accidentally hurt him. e_e)…but I was getting up into his face and using my anxiety as anger. My character thought this guy had murdered all these little kids in sick sick ways. So it was pretty easy.
But that energy can easily be turned into any emotion. Happy? Sad? Use it. Maybe you’re really really happy to the point of vomiting.
Just remember. If you’re acting. Don’t do it with your eyebrows. e_e I always have that problem.
Thank you so much Bunny! I’ll be using this at my next performance.
A few weeks ago I attended a convention in my Sasha cosplay, and it was totally worth dealing with the 100 degree weather.
I just wanted to share this with you, and thank you for creating these characters, because all of them have impacted my life in some way, Sasha especially.
So thank you so much!
Ok Sasha was on screen for maaaaaybe 10 minutes total and I’m not sure if she actually had any lines (I think she might have shouted something in Russian as they were being attacked) and this character impacted OP’s life?? I mean….good for you, I guess.
Yes, she did, because she didn’t have to speak for her to have an impact. The first time we see her you can tell she’s a badass. She’s beautiful, she wears full makeup into battle, and you can tell nobody fucks with her. She’s the dominating one in her marriage to a 7ft tall, strong ass Russian man, and you can see this because a) cafeteria scene;
She’s calling him over. When he sits down, she pulls him to her and he just lets her.
b) When that whole shit fest with Gipsy’s test run goes down;
Aleksis is clearly uncomfortable about standing on that catwalk, BUT HE DOESN’T MAKE ANY MOVE TO LEAVE UNTIL SASHA STARTS MOVING. Sasha stares that fucking plasma gun down and she is pissed that she even has to move, because she isn’t scared of it.
c) WHEN WE FIRST MEET THEM, GUESS WHO’S WALKING IN FRONT;
And d) She is Pilot 1 of Cherno;
Aleksis is Pilot 2. Sasha is the one that calls out the orders, she talks to LOCCENT the most, she tells Aleksis what to do in Cherno, and he LISTENS TO HER.
DO YOU KNOW WHAT IT MEANS TO SEE A BIG TALL MAN LISTEN TO HIS WIFE LIKE THIS? IT’S AMAZING. BECAUSE IT NEVER HAPPENS. THERE’S A STRONG MAN ON SCREEN? HE’S THE LEADER, CLEARLY. NOT IN PACIFIC RIM. BOTH MAKO AND SASHA KICKED THAT STEREOTYPE IN THE FUCKING FACE, THEY KICKED ASS, AND LOOKED GOOD DOING IT.
And when Cherno does go down, Sasha isn’t screaming in fear of death, she’s screaming because she can’t take the kaiju down with her. And that’s badass as hell.
(Ps, she has 10 lines. And she’s cussing in Russian when they’re fighting.)
The cosplay was great enough but the commentary made this an instant reblog.

This, literally, is dead on exactly how I feel, and probably a lot of you guys too.
i’ve never seen a comic that narrates what is consistently running through my head so thoroughly
like i know logically that its untrue but god that voice in my head will not shut up telling me this shit
hey if anybody feels like this right now i just want u to know that the creepy shadow voice telling you all that stuff IS a lie and you are very valuable to the people in your life
<3 stay tough space cowboys
And now we reblog, sure that when people see it they’ll think, “She’s at it again… UNfollow…”
The Spine dragon I got the other night. He definitely needs gene changes before he’s finished.
Spine like SPG? o:
