This particular costume stressed me! When I say stressed? Whew!
First day wearing it and I spent almost 20mins in the changing room and I came out with a shawl until it was time to act. After that, I said fuck it and strutted around set with the costume.
People would l take pictures of their TV set and send to me, circling the boobs and yeah, that was uncomfortable.
