Halloween is practically around the corner and I still haven’t decided what to be. We’re doing a fairytale theme in my department, so I’ll stick within that, but I don’t know which character to choose. I’ve been fairytale characters in the past, so I will likely not repeat any of these (though I might if I had a great inspiration for a new take): Red Riding Hood, Snow White, Little Miss Muffet (nursery rhyme – close enough to a fairytale) and the Red Queen from Alice in Wonderland (also not technically a fairytale). (I may or may not have done Little Red Riding Hood at the library – I can’t seem to find a photo of it, so perhaps I did it for some other venue?) I’m also a bit picky in that I want to have something comfortable enough that I won’t be irritable by the end of the workday – this means lots of make-up is out (so no green witch face) and nothing with a corset. i also want something that will be easily recognizable but not necessarily a Disney interpretation, I’m very open to playing with ideas, like when I did Miss Muffet in Regency style.
So, ideas, anyone? I’ve got a pinterest board going and would love to hear your suggestions!
Okay, I really need to get on with naming this gal. So here is a list of the names which have been suggested so far for my Blythe:
Of these, I’ve been leaning toward:
Alice – because of Alice in Wonderland, which is cool
Ash – because of Evil Dead, of course (and she is an Ashlette, so it would make sense)
Ned – because of Pushing Daisies
Turtle – because of The Westing Game
Willow – because it is a Buffy reference, as well as the name of a tree
You can now vote in the sidebar!
While working on this, a friend of mine suggested this website, What to Name Your Baby Goth, which is too funny not to share.
Caterpillar by LZCreations
In a new update to the Tim Burton Alice in Wonderland remake, Alan Rickman has been confirmed as the caterpillar. Christopher Lee is also on board, though in what role I don’t know. Both of these will be excellent additions!
NYC – Central Park: Alice in Wonderland – Mad Hatter by wallyg
I’ve been looking forward to Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland for some time, and now I hear that Crispin Glover is going to play the Knave of Hearts. !!!
Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter are also set to star as the Mad Hatter and the Red Queen, not surprisingly.
