A Favorite Memory


Some of you guys were wanting to see pictures of my Madonna days. Well here they are. The guy that took the picts, really didn't have the right equipment. Non of the picts are good, but you can get the idea. This is at a Bar Mitzvah at the then Mandalay Four Seasons. We had a great time. The set is actually part of the Miss Texas set. The kids in the theatre department at Wesleyan decided which singer they looked like...then we did costuming, hair and makeup and auditioned to get the gig. I danced and did some lip syncing to "Material Girl." I was told that "I was Madonna."
I remember at the time wearing a size five and had a little room in it. I wanted to be skinnier. I think I look just fine in the picts now. I would really like to be that size five. In these picts I am wearing the very early Madonna look with the black lace gloves the see the bra through the mesh shirt with a funky pattern shirt over. I have on pinks lace leggings layered over fushia tights with some fabulous Roman sandals. This is the first time I highlighted my hair. I have a huge bow with tons of jewels on.
After we did our main feature show, we went out into the audience and danced with the audience. We had a great time. The funny thing at this party was that the lady who hired us wanted an Elvis impersonator. We didn't have one. So she went out and hired an "Old Elvis." The guy was rude and awful. He barely moved. He had all these demands like he thought he was the real thing. The lady said afterwards, she should have saved her money and hired more college students.
Well this is one of my favorite memories I wanted to share. Thanks for looking!

HAHAHAHA priceless Brook! I think all of us 80's gals can remember at one time or another looking and dressing like Madonna. If not then there is Debbie or better yet Cindi Lauper!
