Dear Evan Hansen Aesthetics

I love how throughout Dear Evan Hansen, Evan becomes less of “Act 1 Evan” and more like Connor. The way he holds himself, the way he dresses. He still wears the blue button up or collared shirt, but during most of Act 2, he covers it up by wearing a gray jacket - just like Connor wore. Actually, right after “Good For You” when Connor and Evan are standing side by side, they are wearing identical outfits. I love when shows subtly use costume design to add so much more to the story. Evan was trying so hard to no longer be “Evan.” He now had that family he’d always wished for - Connor’s family. But in reality, he still is Evan. He’s still that awkward kid that plays with the hem of his shirt. That little blue collar peeking through the gray still shows that he’s still right there - just masked. The gray jacket just goes to show how much he was becoming (or already like) Connor. The good relationships that turned sour. The feeling of giving up on everything he worked hard on. The feeling of having it all, yet nothing at the same time. Evan and Connor are the representations of the same kind of person. They were the same person. They just chose different paths to follow. Well, maybe not. They both chose the same path at some point in their lives, but Evan’s path took a detour.

It’s notable to point out that Evan looses the jacket right after “So Big/So Small” - which if you haven’t heard yet, gives Heidi Hansen to chance to tell Evan how much he honestly and truly means to her - something that (as far as the audience knows) Cynthia Murphy never did with Connor. This sign of “losing the mask” or becoming someone new is such a poetic change. Something that only Costume Design could pull off successfully. You can actually tell during the Finale that during the year that we don’t see, he’s become more confident, more like the true Evan Hansen. I think it’s at that moment when we really see who he truly is.

Emily Rebholz may or may not get nominated for Costume Design for the 2017 Tony’s. (I personally think she should!) Regardless, that simple act of putting Evan in a basic gray hoodie speaks for so much of his character.

“That’s the challenge of contemporary clothing: We need to be able to translate a large amount of truth through how these characters appear.” - Emily Rebholz

It’s nearly midnight and I decided the best thing for me to do was to try making icons, so have some LGBTQIA Dear Evan Hansen teens. Sorry for the graininess, this is my first time trying this and I have no idea what I’m doing.

keeganconnortracy The devil is in the details - I adored the little details of this sweet bolero Blue got for S6! In honor of the Once season finale tonight I’m going to (somehow) film and post my ‘We Love Once’ song. I know a lot of Oncers are sad to say goodbye to some favorites today, goodbyes are indeed the worst. Hold them fondly in your hearts though, for when you are down, the happiness they brought will always find you. 💙  #onceuponatimeseasonfinale #costume #bts #setlife #bluefairy (x)

Connor Costume Update FIVE!  8/7/14

Ok last one today, folks!  Spent some time working on the leather items.  I finished the belt and made good progress on the holsters.  I distressed the leather on the bow and the quiver.  I feel much better about them both now.  I think what bothered me so much about them is that they were too pristine and unblemished.  They needed some wear and tear.  It was rather heartbreaking to deliberately damage such expensive leather but the end product is much more satisfying.  The leather bits got on the white embroidery of the quiver and I rubbed them in so the white is less white and more dirtied, if you will.  

Then I took some pictures.  And got excited.  Then I started adding stuff in and, well, there you go.  Good night!

Connor Costume Update July 28, 2014 (Take Two!)

Got one of the beaded sections completely sewn onto the band!  Snaps on the inside for secure positioning on the sleeves.

Thanks again sunnyxstars!!!!  Having your beading in my hands and working with it, I can see how well done it is.  It’s sturdy and neat and I appreciate that immensely!

{C.M x Reader} Headcanons P.2

Bet you all thought you had seen that last of me but nope, I’m here to wreck your shit up. I’m still working on the first chapter to the Connor Murphy thing I’m writing, wink wink, so until that’s done have some more mediocre headcanons.

- He’s scary good at nail art? Like, he could put those Russian nail artists on YouTube out of the job???

- He offers to paint your nails as soon as he sees the paint chipping.

- He also has a huge selection of nail polish in a box hidden in his closet, don’t be too surprised if there are at least twelve different bottles of black nail polish; they’re all just different brands.
“Yes, having this many bottles of black nail polish is totally acceptable! Yes, there is a difference between them. This one has holo glitter!”

- His collection of nail polish is actually the cutest thing? But you realize he doesn’t really have any nail art tools so guess what he’s getting for his birthday!

- He sneaks into your house at the oddest of times. Once he climbed in through your window while you were showering, he did you a major frighten once you finished.

- He really likes Halloween but he doesn’t like having to put effort into a costume.
“Connor, where’s your costume?”
“This is my costume, I’m dressed like a homicidal maniac; they look just like everybody else.”
“Okay, you make yourself comfortable while I go hide the knives.”

- He really likes spider-touches. Meaning he likes when you gently trace the tips of your fingers across his skin.

- Really, he just likes small gestures of intimacy all together. He isn’t a huge fan of being overly affectionate, mainly because he’s not used to it, but he does enjoy the small gestures like you reaching for his hand while taking a walk and gently rubbing the top of his hand with your thumb, or bumping shoulders right before walking into class.

- He goes to animal shelters with you once a week, it’s become a tradition at this point.

- He finds connecting to animals a lot easier than connecting to people most of the time, so when he first took you to the animal shelter with him you were kind of in awe to see how well the animals reacted to him.

- Though, he did nearly get into a fist fight with a 40 something year old man who had stepped on a puppy’s tail.

- He craves, and I mean CRAVES, sugar cookies when he’s high.

- He’s not even a huge fan of sugar cookies but when he’s high he just wants five batches of them.

- He reads so much? He has a small collection of old books that are worn to hell because he’s read them so many times.

- The day he lent you one of his favorite novels you knew you were going to cling to this beanpole for the rest of your life.

- He had an Avril Lavigne phase but who hasn’t?

- Boy is probably really into conspiracy theories?! He’ll bust into your room at 3 in the morning just to show you a new one or new evidence to one he’s shown you in the past.

- And you, being the supportive date mate that you are, will always look into it some more when you’re more awake and then go into a full blown eccentric conversation with him over it when you see him again.

- He likes to add vanilla and sugar to his warm milk. It’s something his mom used to do to help him sleep at night because he hated the taste of warm milk on its own.

- He flips school buses off if he’s behind one in traffic or if one drives by while he’s walking home. But who doesn’t?

- Once there were a few kids in one of the buses and they saw him do it so, as a child does, they did it back.

- You had some trouble holding him back because you were laughing too hard.

- He probably really likes to burn candles and incense, so you like to keep some handy when he visits.

- He has like an entire drawer of lighters in his bedroom. Most of which haven’t even been used, he just likes the designs?

the deh kids being dorks headcanons

Trigger warnings: eating disorders and anxiety in general

  • Jared made them watch mean girls once 
  • it didn’t go well
  • the scenes about regina wanting to loose weight freaked Connor out (my version of Connor is recovering from an eating disorder)
  • and all the betrayal and trash talking behind each other’s backs made Evan upset
  • and every time someone was mean Alana would stand in front of the screen and start ranting (so basically the whole time the movie was on)
  • Zoe, who was bored to death because she had seen the movie so many times, and also wanted everyone to stop being upset turned it off
  • Jared sulked in the corner listening to the the soundtrack for thirty minutes 
  • do Connor and Jared fight? absolutely
  • but at this point its less serious and more like watching Jim and Dwight on the office 
  • Evan and Alana still hate it, but they’ve found ways to sometimes stop the arguments before they start 
  • Zoe and Alana started dating a long time before Evan and Connor did
  • Connor approves of Alana, she’s amazing
  • but the constant PDA drives him insane 
  • Alana: Connor you should know that expressing your love is a natural and healthy thing! Zoe: He’s just upset he can’t be doing this with Evan!
  • at that point Connor has already stormed out of the room and Evan is yelling at Zoe probably
  • Jared is taking a video of the whole thing
  • I’m making them sound like they hate each other, but it’s just friendly bickering 
  • Zoe would make them all wear a group costume for halloween
  • and by make I mean force 
  • she forced them to wear group costumes 
  • Connor: for the last time Zoe, I’m not dressing up as a character from Glee!
  • they trick or treated, no questions asked
  • they all had this epic candy trade at the end of the night that ended with Jared only having lollipops and connor lighting a kit kat on fire (inspired by @todayconnormurphy)
  • a few days after halloween Connor asked Evan out
  • finally 
  • it was super awkward but super adorable 
  • they both decided to wait a while before telling the group
  • Connor was terrified that his crush on Evan was just because the squad™ shipped them so much that it became a subconscious thing 
  • so they wanted to wait and see if they’d work out before they got everyone (mainly Zoe) exited 
  • as it turns out, they were actually gross lovesick teenagers after all and after a month they told the whole group about them 
  • Alana just started grinning uncontrollably and a stream of “I told you so”s and “I knew you would be good together”s came spilling out of her mouth 
  • Jared was smirking and teasing them but he was actually really happy for them
  • Zoe though 
  • Zoe was jumping up and down and screaming and was already planning their double wedding with her and Alana
  • Evan’s face was bright red
  • Connor eventually put his arm around Evan to ground him
  • cue the worlds longest “awwwww” from everyone
  • cue one of Connor’s famous eye rolls 
  • cue Jared proceeding to attempt his longest “yeah boy” ever, and the entire group cheering him on
  • I love these dorks 

mars-gold  asked:

Could you do Mike Faist parenting hcs? Like you and Mike are married and have kid(s)? Or a fluffy imagine with mommy!Reader x Daddy!Mike and a lil child? If it's not too much trouble. Thanks! Btw I LIVE for this blog 😊

- When you come home from hospital, Mike dotes over you non stop. Whatever you want or need, he has for you in practically an instant.

- You have a daughter, and her name is Angelica Louise Faist.

- Mike initially didn’t want to name her Angelica bc Hamilton, but you ranted to him for over an hour about why Angelica Schuyler was a hero, so he let you name her Angelica.

- (Also her initials are A.F, which Mike thought she would appreciate when she gets into her teens)

-!The entire cast obsess over her when you pay visits to the Music Box. Jen and Rachel reminisce about when they had their first newborn, and they give you a whole heap of very good advice.

- Mike always sings Angelica a lullaby before putting her down to sleep. You tried to once, and she sobbed until Mike arrived. You felt incredibly offended, but you understood why she would prefer Mike over you.

- Michael and Jen consider Angie to be their ‘granddaughter’, and if Angie is missing, she’s usually with those two.

- Despite having constant late nights as it is thanks to DEH, Mike still insists on staying up to help with the baby. You try to persuade him not to, but he doesn’t listen. Ever.

- For your first Halloween, you borrow Ben’s costume and dress up as Evan, Mike goes in his Connor costume, and lil Angie is ‘The Tree’. The entire cast (and all of social media) collectively fawn over the three of you.

- When Angelica starts elementary school, Mike is an absolute mess. You, however, are glad to get some time back to yourself at home. And possibly some alone time with your husband. (Wink wink.)

- They have a father daughter dance at Angelica’s school, and Mike goes out and buys Angie a little dress, and they go together. You get sent a whole heap of photos, one of them including a crying Mike.


Ok this is the last of my tomahawk spam, I promise!  I distressed the handle leather a bit so it doesn’t look like it was wrapped yesterday…. even though it was!  I attempted to distress it the most where Noah’s hand will be gripping it.
