Charles and I got home at 6am. It was a torturous drive back, mainly because I don't like driving Rt. 81 at night.

So the shoot...

It was nothing like I imagined it would be like. I have had such awful experiences on sets that I just imagined the worst (as you may have read on my livejournal). I am so glad it went so well.

Charles was allowed in to help me cary the cake, and I saw the people who had already been there, and they were all in lolita clothes. "I'm so underdressed," I said to Charles, and just then Voltaire walked by and said "You're not underdressed. Don't worry."

So, after Charles left, I went and put my stuff in a corner and started wrapping up my fake gifts, sharing boxes and paper and tape with a girl next to me.

Then I looked for Voltaire again to see where his girlfriend Jamie was doing makeup and hair. He pointed the way, but there was a wait, so I waited. When she got to me (I was the last in line), I said "Go nuts. Do whatever you think will look okay on me," and she did a smashing job! It was almost exactly what I wanted to try to do myself (but didn't have the resources to do). She said I looked so cute and that she was really having fun with me because I was the only person who'd let her do whatever she wanted *blush* She made me feel really pretty :)

Then I went on to be in a scene. I got to hold a pocket goth (and got to keep it! yay!) and be front and center. I got hit a couple times by the wheelchair (used for the camera motion), and almost got kicked in the face by the Rabbi-Preist, and almost got hit in the face by Voltaire's guitar, foot, and *ahem* booty.

A few more scenes were done before the cake-baking contest. If you look at my pictures, you'll see mine (that says "happy birthday my old friend" on it) and the two winning cakes). Then he announced that we all get a prize for entering (a choice of one of his cds), and the winners got all his CDs. Also, each actor got a copy of his live CD :)

The last scene was taken in a couple different segments. There were a few groups of people in the first segment, and some extras that had to wait (me included) for the next segment. Then the last group was shot and while such was going on, V announced that everyone else could help themselves to cake. When the shot was done, he announced "That's a wrap!" and we all cheered. I went over to the cakes and mine was the only one that was totally gone! What? hehehe.

Then photo-ops and autographs were in order. I went over to Orville to get a picture of me feeding him cake, and others followed suit (and Jenn jumped right on my suggestion of someone going down on him).

Then I gave Voltaire HIS birthday present (late january) and a big ol' hug and went on my way.

Much happiness was had.
