Boy George debut

So, last Sat I had the debut of my new Legend:  Boy George!

Here are 2 photos taken prior to the show in the dressing room:
I wasn't posing for the photo above; I was actually doing some Boy George dance moves which didn't translate in the still photo.  My hands kind of look like I have cerebral palsy or something.
She performance went really well!  I asked my friends not to take a video, since it was my first time doing this Legend and I knew I'd do better with more practice and confidence.  As it turns out, none of my friends were even there so I'm glad I wasn't counting on them to take a video!  

As soon as I got out there and began the medley I could feel myself relaxing.  My rehearsed choreography suddenly started to flow and feel more natural than rehearsed.  I really had a good time with it!

But with such great songs, how could I NOT have fun with it?  "I'll Tumble 4 U", "Do You Really Want to Hurt Me?", "Miss Me Blind", and "Karma Chameleon" bring back all those great 80s memories. 

After a costume change all the Legends come out and do a finale song together.  Here's a photo of my friend Lisa as Etta James and Boy George after the show.

I hope I did justice to my Legend.  The audience's reactions lead me to believe I did.  They cheered and sang along during my set, and after the show several asked me to pose for photos with them. It was really, really fun!!!
