Canada's fanciest fanny!

Miss Nude Canada Preliminary Show

Dun dun dun daaaaa!! Well, just got done my preliminary show for Miss Nude Canada and for starters, need to express an ENORMOUS THANK U to two beauties who completely helped me out in the eleventh hour, my fabulous, amazing, true friends to the core, Dinah Might and Jen. My show is a hell to heaven theme, starting off with capturing two angels from heaven, corrupting them and have them turn in to lil devils. The two girls that originally were to play my angels to devils bailed! One to a good cause and the other just flaked out :/

So it was a huge favour to ask Dinah Might, who is my fab friend but also a competitor herself for this contest and my good, old high school friend, Jen, who has NEVER stepped foot on a stage in her life! Just a mom who works as a social worker in a small town just outside of Calgary. It was a tall order but both ladies stepped in at the last minute without hesitation and were absolutely AMAZING!! Not too many girls who are competitors would EVER help another girl out, that says SO much about someone, big kudos for Dinah Might for being my friend in that moment. Great karma to her and that yields a pretty big, ‘I owe you one’. Same to my girlie, Jen. SO thankful to have had that support.

Also an enormous thanks to my special effects/lighting and pyro tech, Rob Sheridan, for working his ass off for my show! He has gone above and beyond putting things together and moving mountains for my show. Rob is well known in the field having toured with Jane Jones, one of the biggest features ever to grace the stage doing all her lighting and special effects as well as many musicians, movies and television. Such a blessing to have :)

As for my show….in my perspective as an entertainer, not my best performance. Everything that could’ve gone wrong did beginning with waking up in the morning with no voice and I was supposed to sing my heart out as the finale to my show. I felt a tingle in my throat a few days ago and had been taking everything from Cold Fx to honey and lemon tea to liquid calcium to try and save my voice but to no avail. But I had a plan B just in case, a water show. My slip n slide is always a favorite, however the water was put on stage near the end of my last song! Then there was my aerial hoop being too low so I couldn’t use it, I actually hit it twice dancing, my smoke didn’t work at all, my costume for my angel sequence didn’t arrive from UPS in time cuz they made a mistake with shipping…blah blah blah blah BLAHHH! LMAO 😛 Yes, can laugh about it now.

Yep, just didn’t manifest as the vision I had ‘AND’ I still went on with my show, didn’t let it frustrate me……almost..but didn’t allow it take hold and danced my lil heart out and smiled from ear to ear, excited to just be a part of the event and performing for such an enthusiastic audience. I just stayed in character, felt my music, didn’t let all the follies get to me during the show and focused more on the audience and played with them.  Though it was not was my vision was, if I felt myself slipping into disappointment I’d just remind myself that I made the most of it and I had the most amazing support system around when I needed them. What a gift.

After my show I was all packed up heading to my car and there were a few guys having a smoke just outside the club. They all congratulated me on my show and said they loved it and that they thought it was awesome. They continued on with how they loved the theme idea and costumes, the music was the best and having my two lil angels on stage. They then tell me they were all judges and gave me top marks for my show and hoped to see me back friday.

AWWWW! That in itself made my night. It may have been a few guys out of all the judges but is was great to hear that. It also made me recognize that the audience does see things from a different angle. Even though things didn’t work out to me in my ‘entertainer’ perspective maybe it did work out to some of those enjoying the show and who didn’t know about the mishaps…primarily because I just moved on with the show kept having fun….and maybe, just maybe, being the best chest in the west had a lil something to do with it 😉 

Hmmm…well, we will see on Thursday peeps if I move on to the semi finals on Friday….do do do dooooooo! And if I do, I now know what needs to be changed and improved upon and please peeps, send me positive, loving and healing vibes so that my throat is healed and I can sing my heart out and entertain to my highest potential!!! Time to marry my singing with my shows 😀
