The TV show "Smash" has definitely been getting to me...And I don't remember much about the dream, so I'm strictly going off the notes here, which was basically an entire paragraph.
There were multiple parts, but the only part I remember is that there was a Marilyn Monroe workshop, some kind of tribute day for her. The people that organized it thought of different activities to represent her. For example, one of the, the only one I participated in (or remember that I participated in) was an activity where we had to take fabric and make a signature Marilyn look with the help of an already made design on a laminated paper. We were only given a short amount of time, which I didn't know about until the very end of the time. We also had to show off our designs in front a panel of judges. Before we even got to our work stations, the organizers put liquid glue onto our almost naked bodies, so the outfit would stick. (Yeah, I don't know.) The problem with this glue was that it would dry long before we finished making the clothes. I knew what I wanted to make, I chose my stencil and everything, but as I mentioned before, I didn't have enough time. What I ended up doing was taking a trench coat, cut it shorter with scissors, and walked up to the judges, acting like Marilyn. I did a bang-up job, if I do say so myself, giving one of the male judges a kiss on the cheek, which was very Marilyn, and running shyly away. In the dream, I was saying to myself that my inspiration was her transformation from Norma Jean into Marilyn, not quite Norma Jean but not quite the sex symbol Marilyn became.
