The last month has been straight blood, sweat, and tears for these costumes, but the first 2 are complete. These were commissioned for the theatre group of a children’s museum. I’m still finishing up Glinda, but she’s not due for another two weeks.
Everything was handmade by myself, except the Lion prosthetic, which was purchased from FX Warehouse.
Imagine waking up, going on Tumblr and finding the Freddie Mercury tag free of shit like ‘he woz bi cuz he put woman in dis lyrics’. Esp when the song is not written by Freddie. Or they have got the words completely fucking wrong.

Wherein Social Media Specialist Marya E. Gates (aka @oldfilmsflicker) discusses her indifference to a canonical classic and why you should join us on April 8th at 8pm ET/5pm PT for a live tweet of THE WIZARD OF OZ (’39) and convert her.
This month on TCM we are celebrating silver screen legend Judy Garland. This Friday we will be showing arguably her most iconic film: The Wizard of Oz.
Released in 1939 - a year that is often considered one of the single greatest years in film history - WOZ has worked its way into the hearts of millions. Based on the novel by L. Frank Baum, there are many aspects of the film that are embedded in the American culture consciousness - from the ruby red slippers, to iconic lines like, “there’s no place like home,” “I’ll get you, my pretty, and your little dog, too!,” to the Wicked Witch of the West, to Garland’s masterful rendition of Over the Rainbow.
So why don’t I share in the nostalgia? I love Judy Garland (give me weepies like The Clock and A Star Is Born any day!), I love musicals, and I love Technicolor.
But the film has yet to win me over.
Every few years I watch it - usually with a group of people (in person or online) - in an attempt to “get it.” But when it’s over I still don’t love it. I don’t hate it, but I don’t love it. And I never feel the urge to revisit for enjoyment purposes, but rather to try to understand why it’s so beloved.
With this is mind, I will be joining @tcmparty tomorrow night at 8pm ET/5pm PT as they live tweet, attempting to find the magic. For their live tweets, follow @TCM_Party. Follow me at @tcm and @oldfilmsflicker and feel free to send me your thoughts during moments you love so I can try to love them too!
what did that "hump your fist" line from shades of blue mean?
so i’m not totally sure as i’m autistic and am generally bad with stuff like this but
the way i interpreted that part of the conversation was: woz didn’t give a shit at all about what stahl was saying so he changed the subject entirely because it wasn’t worth his time to respond to him. which was basically his way of saying “go fuck yourself” but since they can’t say fuck on network television they watered it down to “go hump your fist”
The first promptathon fic is here! I’ll be filling the prompts in the order I got them. You can still send them in!
Ages and ages ago, nevermore913 prompted: “So I’ve seen a few fics where Rumple steals Belle on/before her wedding day and it’s one of my favorite tropes but I’d love to see one where she stops his wedding and steals him. Bonus points if Cara and Ella are her accomplices.”
I’m sorry you had to wait so very long for this but I hope you enjoy it sweetie!
Pairing: Rumbelle with a side of Spotted Dragon
As with all my AU work, Cara Mallory is Maleficent and Ella Furrier is Cruella.
It was going to be the wedding of the decade, according to the majority of the gossip press. Zelena Greene, heir to the lucrative WOZ Corp legal group, and Rum Gold, the city’s foremost human rights lawyer, were getting married after several years of speculation and rumour. There were several people of the opinion that this was a marriage of convenience orchestrated by Gold’s manipulative and incredibly greedy father Malcolm as a way to eventually merge the two businesses into one. It was no secret that Malcolm had never really given much thought to his son’s feelings on any given subject and no-one would be surprised if the rumours turned out to be true.
Belle sighed as she closed the glossy magazine’s double page spread covering the forthcoming nuptials. She’d fished it out of Ruby’s waste paper basket to take a peek at what the journalists had to say, but she wished she hadn’t. It was only prolonging the agony. She looked over her shoulder at the closed office door behind her. It was too cliché to actually occur in real life; the idea of the highly successful lawyer leaving his wife for his younger secretary just didn’t happen. And if there was one thing that Belle would not be, it was a homewrecker. Gold was constantly in the public eye not just because of his connections with Zelena and Malcolm but because of his career in his own right; and someone in his position simply could not afford a scandal to stain his name.
Really different and not cliche solangelo fafiction!!!
