Busker girl :)

The Arnprior Sunday Market‘s been going well for Musicalmagicalaurie. 🙂 The public’s been quite supportive. People seem to enjoy what I do and I make a fair bit more than minimum wage most days- very encouraging! One more Sunday left in the season- Sept. 24, 2017.  I’ve had a lot of fun with character and costume considerations for this project, indeed. Character’s me,  I think. 🙂 But I’ve been performing public domain traditional and folk songs so there’s definitely period vibe and I’ve had alot of fun thinking perhaps there’s some gypsy in the character. Like I was just passing through Arnprior and landed on this corner to stop and have a go at giving folks some tunes. Kind of like the girls selling flowers on the street back in the day, or something.  I love period works and this has been a make your own work project I’ve quite enjoyed. I don’t know if I’ll get to wear my Jones New York dress that I picked up at our local thrift store for 4 or 5 dollars, I think it was 4, don’t remember now. I’ve been weighing it in my mind. I think it could work- hello, flower selling girl found this in the Goodwill bin, how fortunate! 🙂 We’ll see- supposed to be pretty warm weather. I’ve taken some promo photos with the dress (pale lime green), anyway. 🙂 Some others with my various costume choices, too. Most of the clothing pieces, including the shoes (gifted), were gifted to me or thrift shop purchases. The brown gauchos were purchased new from Thailand, though- love them, as you may have noticed here, previously. 🙂

A couple of weeks ago, after I played my first song- 2 fives! Got one before the song, and one after. 🙂 You can see the bottom of my “Camptown Races” dress.
