I went trick-or-treating as Wendla Bergman.
dyingegypt: I needed a last minute costume so I threw on tights (I don’t have knee-highs), a camisole tucked into a pair of shorts to serve as a makeshift romper, and a dress that I have always thought looked like the “kindergarten” dress. INTERNET HIGH FIVES FOR WENDLA BERGMANNS.
andsoyoushould asked: For the record, I absolutely love reading your tumblr. your SA posts are always really insightful and interesting and I always enjoy seeing what you have to say, even if I don't always agree. There's something really unique about what you have here. Plus, you're a nerdfighter, which makes you extra awesome. So yeah, I just wanted to say that (:

IT’S ALMOST HERE. Every year until now I’ve attempted to do a daily NaNo update in my Livejournal. I’m sort of moving away from LJ and on to Tumblr, so I’m thinking I’ll tumble my updates this year. My question is: do you think I should make NaNo-related posts here in my Tumblr, or should I make a new blog just for it? Should I go back to LJ because the format might...

I’m still playing around with that idea of a touring musical (of Spring Awakening? I’m personally still torn on whether I think that’s weird or not…) roleplaying game. To the point where I just set up a local site for me to toy around with how you’d accomplish a game like that on the scale I’m imagining it :P The nice thing is NaNoWriMo is quickly coming, so if...
I wish I had something to do for Halloween. I don’t. I guess I’ll give out candy to trick-or-treaters though we usually only get like half a dozen on a good year. Should I dress up anyway to sit around my house/post pictures on the internets? :P And should I be zombie!Wendla (obvs. the best costume idea ever)?

justawordshaker asked: Since you are such an expert on all things swings, I wanted to know - which Spring Awakening swing is your favourite overall? Which swings do you think should have had a role over someone else cast? Which swings did you think have the most interesting interpretations of roles? And finally, if you could have a dream cast entirely of swings, who would you cast?

Earlier today there was this secret posted about wanting to be on the Spring Awakening tour and daydreaming about tour life. I can totally relate, and I think a lot of us fantasize about being in our favorite shows regardless of our level of real life talent — and, indeed, part of the inspiration for the choreography for the songs in Spring Awakening comes from the idea of teenagers alone in...

THIS IS MY 600TH POST
geeeeeeze SO I THOUGHT I’D MAKE GIFS FOR THE OCCASSION
Trying to investigate if/how I can post Divshare links on Tumblr. We’ll see if it lets me pretend it’s a video and embed it :P From the London cast, this is Charlotte Wakefield (Wendla), Natasha Barnes (Anna), and Jos Slovick (Georg) singing “Superboy and the Invisible Girl” from Next to Normal at their reunion cabaret thing last year.
