actress needed for short comedy (portland)

we are looking for an fun loving actress 21-30 who can play in a silly role in our gross-out short comedy about the renaissance. The scene is pretty simple, our hero is trotting past an attractive girl wearing a corset who is squirming on the sidewalk. After suddenly sneezing her corset rips exposing she is pregnant and in labor. in attempt to help her give birth, she instead accidentally cracks a noisy flatulent!

Its a super stupid movie, but its going to be hilarious. All you need to do is act like a typical 1600 wench (accent if you can), and be able to rock a corset. If your pregnant already that is a bonus, but of course not needed.
if you are up for it, send us your resume and a headshot/bodyshot.

many thanks!
