One of the few things I haven’t minded about Frozen's success is the fact that it's helped Idina Menzel make a stronger leap from stage-fame to more mainstream-fame than the film version of RENT or her stint on Glee did.
Still, while “Let it Go” is a decent song - largely because of Idina’s powerhouse voice - it’s basically a poor man’s “Defying Gravity”.
So those of you who love “Let it Go” but have yet to hear the original Broadway recording of “Defying Gravity”, listen and experience a powerful, life-changing eargasm.
@ladymeggs said: Omg that is amazing! How did you do it?
it’s actually not too difficult at all! i’m using this tutorial for reference. i think i’m making it too thick though with all the yarn that will be in it by the time i’m done. oops! at least it’s really comfy to wear, unlike pretty much every other wig i own. XD
That technically despite all gems so far presenting as female that they are genderless or agender. They are raceless because they are pink blue etc but I think that is important to note the representation of the voice actors. Representation matters and poc never get to be represented when nonhumans are humanized because they are coded as white. These characters aren’t. It may seem minor but it is very important that we have POC voice actors to show that there is more than one voice. Even if they are raceless Garnet is so heavily based off of Estelle down to her fushion dance. Nicki Manji was sugilite for christs sakes. You cannot deny how a voice actor has so much effect on the character.
i really enjoyed it. the design, as expected, was superb, and the story was less formulaic than i feared. all the characters were charming in their own way, but la muerte still stole my heart. she’s just so darn cool!! i dunno maybe will talk about this more but i’m interested in seeing the general reaction to this movie and sort of hoping other, larger studios will take notice and maybe be inspired to step further outside the box creatively also, especially in terms of design and cultural influence/representation. it also makes me hopeful for the future of reel fx since this seems miles above their last feature.
Dr. Who uses the Tardis to go back in time and stop The Game from ever being invented. In doing so, he changes the course of history such that the universe becomes a peaceful, harmonious utopia. The series ends with Dr. Who standing on a mountaintop watching the sun set behind the silhouette of a beautiful city. He’s smiling but also shedding a tear, because he knows that as the last remaining person who knows about The Game, he must live the rest of his eternal life in solitude, lest someone else hear him whenever he loses The Game.
Has anything terrible ever happened to you at a con? What's the worst thing that happened?
There was one con that had no food stands and the nearest restaurant was two blocks away. That kinda sucked.
Also more recently, I had some guy grab my butt while wearing Astrid. It happened so fast that didn’t know whether to be ticked off or to be impressed that he somehow managed to grab my butt through all those spikes…
That’s about the worst thing that’s ever happened to me though. Hopefully nothing worse ever does happen!
i really can’t handle how bad maleficent’s wings look in the new movie like there’s a shot that’s apparently supposed to look all grand and majestic where she spreads her wings wide but it LITERALLY looks like she’s wearing some cosplay wings and tried to add articulation but could only add one major joint. her wings literally fold like that. i mean that’s fine for cosplay but her wings are CG.
that and the random spike on the wrist joint like i am all for maybe adding a bat-like little thumb but this is just a shitty horn with no reference to anatomy
i’ve still never seen it but it seems her wings were such a huge part of the plot and they look so bad
you’d think they’d at least think to reference ooooh actual bird wings?? or even bat wings? or any wings at all? they could still have that sort of butterfly shape with the feathers if they had added an elbow joint, so what’s the excuse for leaving it out?
even if i could manage to get over my anger at turning the mistress of all evil into a good guy, i would never in a million years be able to accept those wings. they’re just not how wings work!!
