HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!! 👻 🎃 ✨
You’d be surprised how many times I get asked this question: should you ever wear a costume to an audition?
And I get it – if you get an audition where you need to be someone who wears a particular outfit (like a policeman, fireman, etc.) you might feel pressured to get that particular outfit.
But I promise you, this is not necessary. Well… most of the time.
See what I mean in this week’s episode of #GuruTips for Actors!
So the short answer is: NO! DON’T WEAR COSTUMES TO AUDITIONS! YOU WILL LOOK CRAY!
The long answer is: NO! DON’T WEAR COSTUMES TO AUDITIONS! … except when casting asks you to wear something in particular, like a lab coat or a certain color shirt.
Our social media director, Evin Michaels, just told me recently he had another audition where he was told to dress like “Cupid”. That was the only note. So in this case, you do what you can, and you make it work. Remember – casting doesn’t expect you to come in full wardrobe; this is just an after all!
I hope this helped! And now I want to hear from YOU! Have you had an audition where you considered showing up in costume? (Maybe you even DID show up in costume?) Share in the comments below!
And remember – if you have a question on your mind, please send it to [email protected], and I’ll answer it in a future episode of Guru Tips For Actors! Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel, so you don’t miss any #GuruTips!
