Kait, 15, Link Larkin

Another great show, an even better hair day. My hair was out of sight tonight, even Amber said so. Amber's one cool chick, we just seem to groove together you know? Anyway I should be getting to my history homework. Sometimes I just want to tell that teacher to kiss my ass, but detentions might ruin my image.

Link walked into school with his two buddies, completely oblivious to the sworm of girls who immediately parted ways to make a path for him. They were insignifigant to him. He only cared about three things in this world: Dancing on the Corny Collins show, Amber von Tussle, and his hair. He was more than happy with the way things were going in his life and with his carrer.Link never dreamed that things would soon change, let alone change for the better.

Name: Cassie
Age: 15
Character you wish to play: Seaweed J. Stubbs =]
Example of your role-playing in FIRST PERSON: Negro day on the Corney Collins is this Friday and Mama's got us working on a new dance and some of the girls singing new songs. She's also got me helpin Lil Inez with her howcase on the show in a couple weeks, which Mama thinks will land her on a perminant spot, but I doubt that, since those Von Tussles are against us negros even though most of us dance better than them.
Example of your role-playing in THIRD PERSON: Seaweed walked into his mothers record place with a smile, another session of detention had ended, and walked towards his friend working the records. Whispering a song to his friend, he waled back to his place and got ready to dance his best.

Name: Rachel
Age: 17 almost 18
Character you wish to play: Tracy Turnblad
Example of your role-playing in FIRST PERSON: Link Larkin is such a dream doll. I wish he would notice me but he's to wound up in Amber Von Tussle she's a plastic spastic. I wish he would look at me. One day he will, and I'll be on the Corny Collins show, and I'll show Amber who can really dance. And I'm not talking about her either.

Example of your role-playing in THIRD PERSON: Tracy walked into school with a little pop in her step. She was singing a song in her head that no one could hear but her. She opened her locker and kissed the picture of Link that was hanging up. She grinned as she sighed, one day she would dance on the Corny Collins. She'd show them how to really move.

Ang: cheese! :)  (hairspray)angelkaizer on August 2nd, 2007 08:10 pm (UTC)
Ang, 19, Corny Collins

Example #1:
Another Hairspray spectacular.. I look forward to when Velma gets a stiff one. She and that little cherry chick need to flake off and let Maybelle get more credit. Well, I'm all decked out and cutting out to go trollin'. Catch you later. One more thing: remember to find a replacement for Brenda. And don't ask questions.

Example #2:
Corny sauntered easily past Velma out onto the floor, casting an exaggerated grin in reply to her thinned glare. He had done this show all too many times to have to worry and another chorus of "The Nicest Kids in Town" later, he was situated comfortably behind his podium. Two fingers flipped the record on, granting an obligatory introduction before setting the needle, "And now, Amber, Link, Lou Ann, Joey, Vicki, and Mikey in 'The Stricken Chicken!'"

Oh gosh, you have no idea how much you sounded like Corny in these examples. You're in for sure!

Age: 17
Character you wish to play: Vicki Dawson
Example of your role-playing in FIRST PERSON: Man, Amber and her mother really rub me the wrong way thinking that they know everything. Just becuase Amber has won Ms. Hairspray before she thinks she can win it again. And her mother is always making sure that Amber gets all the camera time. I talked to Link about this and he says he doesn't notice it. How can he not?!
Example of your role-playing in THIRD PERSON: Vicki was putting on the last touch of hairspray on her head when Mrs. Van Trussle approached her. "Look, I know that you don't like Amber and want your chance of airtime, but you aren't as pretty as my Amber and you don't have agents lookingat you." "What makes you think I don't like Amber?" Vicki said with a smile. "I have my sources," she said with a sneer and walked away. Vicki knew who was to blame, "LINK!!!" she screamed as she stormed off.

Mini-biography of your character: Vicki is one of the regulars on "The Corny Collins Show." She isn't one of the popular ones but she likes it that way. She is friends with Link and hates Amber as much as all the other girls.

I don't know who to have her PB yet so if you have ideas..

Hi there. Thanks for auditioning. You're totally in. Your character seems really interesting, and it'll be fun for Amber to have another rival. :]

Name: Jen
Age: 16
Character you wish to play: Tammy

Example of your role-playing in FIRST PERSON:
Is it charm is it poise, no it's Hairspray. I sigh, I really do. Hairspray. Whatever you say, Corny. Personally I was gonna say it's business- it's a logical explanation as to why the one girl who cannot dance out of a paper bag is centre stage. Her mom owns the station though, so I mean, that's life, but it drives me nuts how she rubs it in everyone's face. Like, reality check? You're a spoiled brat from Nowhereland. Mummy won't be there forever.
Sweet Mary, gimmie strength to keep smiling and dancing til I find something bigger and brighter.

Example of your role-playing in THIRD PERSON:
Onetwothree, Onetwothree, One-two-watch-out-for-the-cat. Darn it.
Tightening her ponytail and grabbing her fan, Tammy bounded across the floor to pause up the record.
"Alrighty, Sherlock." she chirped, picking up the slender tabby, who was neither enthusiastic or defiant about removal from the basement.
She placed him at the top of the stairs and shut the door again before he could bound back down the stairs to supervise her dance practice...or before ma could badger her about her history homework. She could just copy offa Link on Monday morning- they'd be even by lunch considering he'd inevitably need to "inspect" her English notes.

Mini-biography of your character: A regular dancer on the Corny Collins show. Dancing is Tammy Alexander's life, or as she says, her 'main thing'. She is often quite energetic yet nonchalant, sometimes even bitter. Like the other council members, she is friends with Link, albeit her relationship with him is rather love-hate. She dislikes Amber, typical of female dancers on the show, but has just enough capacity to stand her. However, when her limits are crossed, her energy can make her devious.

I'm still making up my mind about a PB at the moment, but hopefully Tammy checks out. :)

Carina, 13, Velma Von Tussle
Nothing great, I'm blank right now haha.

What in the world has gotten into Corny? Mingling with those negroes like it's no big deal. What if someone were to see him? What if they're using him to get more airtime? Once a month is bad enough. He better start listening to me the same way he listens that Motormouth Maybelle and those filthy friends of hers. After all, I control this show. I control him. I'd hate to have to remind him.

"Velma, how about getting another girl on the show? Someone fresh to keep the people interested" Corny said. Velma pondered the idea but she hated accepting suggestions from people like Corny. Those small people. And plus, Velma hated seeing those badly dressed, wannabes try and dance their way onto the show and steal her daughters spotlight. "No Corny, I think we're fine" she said with the slightest smile.

Character you wish to play:Little Inez
Example of your role-playing in FIRST PERSON: I was watching The Corny Collins Show today, I'm just as good as any of those kids on the show. I don't care what anybody says, I'm gonna dance on the show sooner or later, even if it has to be on 'negro day'. I'm going to have my turn to show what I can do.

Example of your role-playing in THIRD PERSON: Little Inez stood in front of the tv watching Corny's show, it was Negro day again, she watched her mom and brother and all their friends doing their thing on the show. Dancing along with them and adding her own flair to the moves, just waiting for the day when she'd be on there with them.

oops sorry, was signed in on the wrong name before

Character you wish to play: Wilbur Turnblad
Example of your role-playing in the FIRST PERSON- I woke up, and saw my pride and joy, the love of my life, my big and wonderous Edna. I had to get downstairs quickly, so I could start my day, with coffee and heading over to the Magic Show.

Example of your role-playing in the THIRD PERSON- Wilbur watched his little Tracy dance on the TV, keeping his eyes glued to the TV, and he knew believing helped her dreams come true. Wilbur tried to do what the youth was doing on the screen, but with his old bones he just couldn't pull it off.

Hope you enjoy!

Character you wish to play: Motormouth Maybelle

Example of your role-playing in FIRST PERSON: That last platter party sure was groovy, baby. Those kids are head and shoulders above the regular council. I just wish there was some way to get past Velma to get them on for more than just Negro Day. That Nelly though, I swear, she scratches another one of my records and we're gonna have a lot bigger problems than Velma Von Tussle and WYZT. Ya'll know how I feel about folks wreckin' the merchandise.

Example of your role-playing in THIRD PERSON: Motormouth Maybelle, the enigmatic host of Negro Day, had once again settled on a remarkably outlandish outfit to show off her curvacious figure, and her blonde hair was perfectly coifed into a tall dome atop her head. She sauntered into the studio, all grace and pride, throwing her best "I'm just as good as you are" look at Velma Von Tussle as she passed, her chin raised and her shoulders lifted. She did her best not to scoff too much at the haughty and condescending sneer she received in return, and made her way towards the set, her gold dress sparkling under the stage lights.

[Never really done this sort of thing before, but it looked fun, so I thought I'd give it a whirl. :0)]

I haven't been roleplaying for a while, but how long do these last?
Because I'd love to apply for Velma if you ever start over.

Please tell me if you do :)
