Saturday Superstition Overlook

Saturday Superstition Overlook

I keep finding superstitions related to dressing rooms and backstage preparations. I never knew there were so many.

Apparently, it is unlucky to have someone look in the mirror over your shoulder while you are putting on your make-up. Who knew?!  In my experience this happens regularly, and I don’t remember anything bad happening (other than ordinary performance stuff).

Why is this unlucky? Perhaps it goes back to vampire legends or something similar, since vampires are said to have no reflection. I guess having a vampire look over your shoulder might well bring bad luck (except perhaps in the Twilight series).

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Superstitious Secret #145:
“ It is bad luck to have someone look over your shoulder into a dressing room mirror.”
