Mrs. Lovett (Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street)


Today marks the 10th anniversary of the day Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street hit our theatre screens. I remember going to watch it for the first time and completely falling in love Helena Bonham Carter’s portrayal of Nellie Lovett.

for officially casting HBC as Nellie.

I may or may not have stayed up most of the night drawing Mrs. Lovett.

*facepalm* I have released another horrible Sweeney Todd doodle into the world. Haha……. (IGNORE his hands; somewhere between the 30th and 70th time redrawing them, I stopped caring.)

Victorian swimsuits are hilarious. What’s even more hilarious is that I would totally wear either one of these before I would ever wear a modern one.
