Fashion is a way of life
Aaralyn has begun her style education early sitting in front rows at catwalk shows, attending red carpet events, wearing designer clothes like Sierra Julian, Chole and more as she doesn’t miss a single stride walking in custom hand-made shoes. Fashion vocabulary flavors her creative palette on-the-daily; Couture, Rica shirt, Pakana or Pirouetta or Pometto or Ova dress, RUMM jacketa w/ hand knit scarf and more!
Natural explorations through expressing fashion have cultivated an inner dimension of savvy and confidence Aaralyn otherwise would not already appreciate. She understands how to work fashion into added expression when she performs…
For instance, on her own for the off-Broadway series BALLYTURK, in her dressing room, the wardrobe department provided an ensemble for every performance for her to choose from. She knew the enough of the other’s actors’ lines and was keenly aware of a scene that addresses bunny rabbits that she wanted to make a connection to for her performance. So she chose rabbit pants for each performance. And it paid off! After shows several audience members remarked over the next weeks of their recollection of the bunny rabbit scene and noted to her how her outfit symbolized connection for them to the other actors; as if fashion was a character itself!
Another time for a cold-call casting, all the children were asked to audition in their pajamas. Many came to the call in blan neutrals and over-branded apparel. Unfortunately for them just as plainly, they were swiftly turned away… Aaralyn however showed up to the casting to use fashion t make an impression! She greeting the Casting Director in non-branded BRIGHT NEON-tangerine which intentionally matched the Brand color. Later after principal photography concluded, the fashion sense noteworthy insight was shared to Aaralyn that she had BOOKED the principal feature lead based on the energy she brought to the audition and her sense of fashion that resonated in her performance connecting with the Brand according to the Creative Director!
Aaralyn is always excited to see how Fashion can play a part, even a character along her and her shadow in anything she does…
Another trendy fun form of commercial fashion is Aaralyn’s explorations into Cosplay
Aaralyn wishes everyday was Halloween so she could walk door to door in different DIY craft outfits she wants to assemble every day! Fun for her she says, “its fun to put smiles on people’s faces and celebrate characters I dress up as”. For Aaralyn every chance to get into costume and role-play as favorite characters from movies, TV shows, plays, books, comics and video games is an exciting adventurous exercise in exploring her craft for her roles and improvisation practice.
