Bucket List #19: Done. Check.

Make-Up for Wonder Woman

with Make-Up Artist Tayler Berez

Wonder Woman

Wardrobe By Christine Casaus

Anyone who knows me well — knows my fascination with all things Sci-Fi/Fantasy.  I know, it’s funny, odd even — but either way, it’s always been my quirky little cool thing that I’ve kept close to the vest!

And so one of my “dreams” — bucket list items if you will — was always to play a Superhero on film or TV.  Well, I’m telling you, I never thought it would happen, but it did!

This past weekend I got to play Wonder Woman for a project directed by Paul Kowalski.  So cool… so much fun!  And now, I’ve crossed off #19 on my bucket list.  Honestly, who would have ever thought a Latin/Black chic from the ‘hood could ever be Super Woman?  Just goes to show you — you gotta dream. And if you’re gonna dream, might as well dream big!  Woohoo!

Here’s another big item I crossed off my list a while ago….Sky-Diving!

Curious — what’s on your list?

CARMENISMS: Off My Game Update – Distractions

The Gist:

After the week of the horrible “interview”, I got another chance, another shot — and it turned out brilliantly!  Remember that we’re all human.  Sometimes we make mistakes, but it happens, and the trick is figuring out, once you fall, how to get back up!  Also be careful of distractions.  You may think you need to lay in bed for days because you’re depressed, but the truth is, that’s just avoiding the work you need to be doing.  Find your way back into the game!

CARMENISMS: OFF MY GAME

 

The Gist:

Had such a bad day. Totally blew an amazing opportunity. How am I going to get through it? Partially by taking some advice from Winston Churchill. “When you’re going through hell, keep going…”

Couldn’t adore someone more that I’ve never met. This is a wonderful soul. Doing great things to change the world – to inspire, to teach, to give someone else a chance. I. So. Love. That. ‪#‎BeautifulPeople‬

NICKEL & DIMED

Okay. So, I’m spilling the beans – sort of speak – to those of you who’ve been wondering where I’ve been, well, here it goes: I’ve been rehearsing for a play I’m in this summer! First show is July 18th, with the official run opening on July 20th — so scared! So excited! Being back on stage is OFF THE HOOK brilliant. If you’re in town (Los Angeles/Hollywood area), I hope you’ll stop on by and catch the show. And if you’re not in town, I hope you’ll support us anyways. Send us some love, prayers, and yes, if you can spare a few bucks, please send any amount to the awesome production company Bright Eyes Productions. It’s a not-for-profit organization and the money is all going to a great cause and a wonderful organization — here’s the link to DONATE:  BrightEyesDonatationLink — The play, NICKEL & DIMED by Joan Holden, based on the book by the same name,  is about the working class and how people…   …you know what? Come see the play! I hope you will!  Peace, love and all that good stuff. Hope to see you this summer. If you have any questions, email me (click here)!
