Go you! Queen of the Night! *ooh* *ahhh*

Will you also perform the aria to provide full authenticity? ;)

Umm... no. You really don't want to hear that!

Super-cool!!! And I love the idea of building a costume around a lipstick ;-)

That woman is FIERCE.

Best. Version. Ever.

God I wish I were a coloratura... SIGH.

I know, so fabulous! Me too, heck I'd just love to have some proper training. It's just so expensive. *le sigh*

OMG yes! She chews the scenery like none I've seen.

The grass is always greener. I'm a coloratura. We're a dime a dozen compared to the number of roles that are available. What I wouldn't give to be a solid lyric. Sigh.

Great idea!! And the necklace and earrings are awesome accessories for the outfit.

Thanks! Yes the more I look at them, the more I like them! :>

Oh awesome! That's such a great idea: If you can't sing the part, you can still dress the part!

You know, it's funny, but I was just looking through one of my favorite books, The Catropolitan Opera by Susan Herbert. It's a book of very lovely paintings with cats dressed up in scenes from famous operas. It sounds incredibly silly, I know, but the paintings are actually very detailed and beautiful, and the text is quite witty. You might want to check it out; it includes an impressive Queen of the Night, if you fancy a giggle. :)

I'll have to see if my library has it - thanks! One of the fun things about this project has been finding images of different Magic Flute productions. It's interesting how designers have interpreted the costumes. :>

Woo! This-is-a-great-idea!!!
I'd like to do a "Queen of the Snow" one day...
jennylafleur From: jennylafleur Date: August 23rd, 2008 02:09 pm (UTC) (link)
Oh that would be fun. I've always thought it would be fun to do a "Snow Queen". I love themed costumes, can you tell?
lisotchka From: lisotchka Date: August 23rd, 2008 02:23 pm (UTC) (link)
I love them too! ;-)

You know, I never realized just how awesome that aria was until I saw it sung.
jennylafleur From: jennylafleur Date: August 25th, 2008 02:09 pm (UTC) (link)
I know, amazing isn't it?
