First of all! Before I say anything else, my Raoul post is almost done! This being said, it's kind of morphed into more than just a defense post, and it's turned into more of a "my thoughts on Phantom" post.
This means the cruddy thing is really long.
SO I HAVE A QUESTION FOR YOU ALL.
Would you rather I did the post in two parts? (They'd still be pretty good sized posts.)
Or would you prefer I did it in one fell swoop? (The post's a novel, basically.)
Let me know, so I can format and stuff, my dears. :)
For everyone who wondered how the Giants game went.... we got creamed. *cough*
I worked a lot this week, which is nice, because I can always use a little extra money, ya feel me?
Somehow, I managed to do something to my thumb and my pointer finger on my right hand, and now typing is tricky, because they hurt.
|Jack should just be president, that's all I'm saying.|
Bella's doing a petition to get Tale of Two Cities back on Broadway, and she would really love it if you guys could sign it for her. It's here.
Anyway, this Picture Saturday's going to be a little different, because I'm posting paper dolls rather than drawings.
I had a good time making these, even though they were movie costumes, rather than Broadway ones. I get that movies and stage performances are supposed to be different, but I kind of wish they'd kept the costumes a little closer to the stage version... that's just my preference.
Anyway! Here we go!
1.) The dolls themselves, because LOOK AT HOW AWESOME HIS FACE TURNED OUT! (And Christine looks sweet, which made me really happy.)
2.) Some of the pictures I took with them wearing their outfits didn't turn out so well, my phone's camera has issues sometimes, but here, have Christine and her Think of Me gown.
3.) The dressing gown from Angel of Music, because seriously, that's one of the most important outfits of the show.
4.) So his masks made me really happy....
5.) Christine's Wishing dress, because prettiful...
6.) The Masquerade gown, which is glorious... (And surprisingly tricky to draw, omgoodness.)
7.) The Phantom's masquerade costume. (Did you know it's called Red Death? CAUSE I ONLY JUST FOUND OUT.) Also, not gonna lie, this is my favorite of all of them.
8.) And finally, Christine's bridal veil and gown from the Final Lair, and this is possibly my favorite of hers. Her dress turned out better than I expected, those pleats gave me some trouble.
Ehem, I finally sat down and watched the whole Phantom movie with Sammi, because she loves the movie and she wanted me to watched it without bias... I liked it a lot more than I thought I would.
It's a lot better when you watch it all the way through and not just the clips you can find on youtube. I will say I actually like the way Gerard portrays the Phantom better than Ramin whatshisface, because he acts more like Michael Crawford, who will always be the epitome of Phantom to me.
Also, I think the hate movie Raoul gets is wrong. The guy is a good actor, and he sings really well, and he wasn't a wimp, which is what I hear people say about him a lot. I mean yeah, his hair is long and... yeah, his hair's too long. But it's accurate to the time and he was really cool, so I think he made up for it.
Basically the main problem I have with the movie is that they made it quite a bit dirtier than the musical, the Music of the Night, and Point of No Return made me really uncomfortable.
Anyway, there you have it!
What do you think of the dolls?
Which one is your favorite Christine outfit?
Which is your favorite Phantom outfit?
Did I capture the feel of the costumes?
Let me know about the Raoul post, pretty please...
Let me know!
Love ya guys, and I shall be back soon!
