*wizard of oz

Getting into musicals is so weird cos you start out with something relatively normal like Wizard of Oz or something from Disney and you’re like “ok” and then you move on to ones about newspaper boy strikes or the founding fathers and you’re like “…ok” and the next thing you know you’re watching a musical about an alien man eating plant that may or may not represent Satan’s temptations and you’re like “…how the fuck did I get here”

Does anyone notice that Willemijn Verkaik is like the perfect Elphaba?

(And not by voice, because that’s debatable, even though she slays!)

She looks like her, fits the description of both the book:

And the iconic 1939 film:

Though both are described as ugly, just skip that one because Willemijn is fucking beautiful. They’re also described as tall, skinny, with a pointed nose, and obviously green skin. And OH look!: 

She’s got it all, tall…ish, thin face and physique, her bone structure is on point, and she looks lovely in green.   

She’s also a wonderful actress, she can pull off menacing and intimidating.

Completely awkward AF.

And adorable, just look at her!  LOOK AT HER!

Are we agreed?

She is Elphaba. So what I’m getting at is, Willemijn should play Elphaba in the 2019 Wicked movie

Introducing Wizards to Muggle things.. [Part 8]
  • [Watching the Wizard of Oz]
  • Pansy: Okay. Putting aside that muggles clearly have a TERRIBLE sense as to what an ACTUAL witch looks like.. How does this witch bathe?
  • Hermione: What do you mean?
  • Pansy: If the Wicked Witch of the West melts in water she can't exactly wash herself! Scourgify only works so long! NO WONDER HER SKIN IS GREEN!!

Cancer
There’s No Place Like Home ~

Dorothy’s imagination is much like Cancer’s, becoming lost in a dreamy daze of lullabies and wickedness. On her journey through Oz she meets her many forms, the beautiful Godmother, that being her spirit guide, dwelling in her 4th house. Cancer is of course, the fairy god mother, the divine mother, when I am with some Cancer mothers I know I do feel them approach me in a pink orb, holding a wand of psychic prophecy and guidance. And the wicked witch emanates through Cancer, the dark mother coerced with jealousy. The individual can be intrusive, possessive, and unwilling to let friends, family, or children carry out lives independent of their own. Along the yellow brick road she meets her many children, the munchkins, that which she mothers over all, innocent and vulnerable. Through imaginary lands she meets her counterparts, seemingly the zodiacs cradling her side by side. The Scarecrow who is searching for a brain, the Gemini who she must integrate, that who has burned and lost their mind through overthinking. And then the cowardly lion, preparing for Leo, learning courage, faith, and bravery. To the Great Wizard of Oz she searches, knowing this magic would find her home. All Dorothy wanted was home. She finds the great wizard, nearly dazed by poison poppies, that of her toxic fantasies. The Great Wizard is forbearing, all powerful, or so it seems. This can be her duality, her shadow Capricorn, the great and the accomplished, triggering her fears of insufficiency, her knowledge that tremendous authority rests within her, that which she is scared to wield. What the Cancer doesn’t know worries her- especially when it comes to herself. The Great wizard is her, she balances on the zodiac’s most ascended axes. She is the Great Wizard, the Great Mother, the People’s Princess. When she realizes all is not what it seems - she returns home. Much like the inner and outer Jupiter journeys the Cancer makes, internally restless, externally homely.
