GND236 - Typecasting by Pika-la-Cynique GND236 - Typecasting by Pika-la-Cynique

(Mag's costume is based off a performance of the Magic Flute starring Olga Polyakova that I stumbled upon on google images, and delighted in the glossy black feathers that connected neatly with her fateful Chromaggia outfit.)

Louisa done amazing, as usual.






This is a work of fanart, and only intended for shits and giggles and vicarious fangirl thrills. Not my characters, no profit being made.

Eponine [Les Mis] (c) Hugo, Boublil, Schonberg, and Kretzmer, by way of Sam Barks.

Not gonna lie, I am very happy for both Eponine and Jamie in this scene.  Both of them received the short end of the stick in their respective canons.  They deserve a happily ending after party.

The artwork of the ball is stunning! Good for Ponie, I always felt that she got the short end of the stick in Le Miz.
"The Sun Prince" ... OMG I called it!! I thought I was wrong, but I was right!! : DDD

What is Sarah holding in the second panel?
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2015  Professional General Artist
Oh yeah. She briefly had a cigarette-holder thingie as part of her Noir/Femme Fatale look, I completely forgot about it afterwards. ^^;
calico62 Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2015
It's all good ^_^ I thought that might be a cigarette-holder, but I wasn't sure

So... I take it our operatic types didn't discuss outfits beforehand.

Underworld Boss-lady - so the Veronica Lake (via Jessica Rabbit) styling was not my imagination after all! (And yes, definitely 1930s...)

And nor was Raoul's strong resemblance to Lous XIV :D
Although it sounds as if the two parties didn't co-ordinate their costume choices in advance after all, which seems almost too much of a coincidence -- the Fourth Wall presumably in operation.
Presumably "Naturellement" is Raoul's response to the voiceover announcement of Erik as "Monseigneur Lune", rather than to his "Ah." (Assuming I'm reading the former comment correctly in the resigned sense "of course, it would be...")
With "Erik?" as Mag questioning her escort as to what, exactly, is going on in the silences between the words..?

I do love the ingenuity with which you've come up with a rationale for Erik to have a vertical half-moon mask, rather than the normal half-mask worn by the other masqueraders! And I like the little white highlight bringing Sarah into the foreground in the final panel.

Oh, I thought Raoul was Apollo because of that amazing PotO chapter, Apollo's Lyre. Gracious I love these colored pages!

OMG THE DOCTOR AND ROSE I almost had a heart attack in the last panel because I thought it was them AND IT WAS!!!
HolyMaiden Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
...Wait, so that means Sarah is Persephone? .....I hope she's aware of that.
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2014  Professional General Artist
That's as in Criminal ''Underworld'' Bosslady. Sarah would not simply walk into a Persephone simile.
HolyMaiden Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
....Bummer about Rose not wearing a pretty dress though :( If you were keeping themes, with costumes you could have done something based off the story of the Salvador Dali/Disney short Destino:… .....which, yeah, sadly would have been appropriate. Though I'm sure you already have something.
....Still bummed that Rose doesn't get a fancy dress. Her Doctor is always good the way he is :)
Starsan Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
there truly needs to be Some rumple/belle love going on here, something Once Upon a Time!!! i definitely think it suites GND to a T! Maybe some Emma/Hook/Bael love triangle chucked in for good measure/ perhaps regina and Robin hood? Come on girl, the story writes itself!!!
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2014  Professional General Artist
So write your own spin-offs?
OUAT is already a multiplayer crossover type 'verse; and Rumbelle is a tad redundant with J/S issues.
Also I've not watched the whole thing yet, and I am fairly lukewarm about it.
Starsan Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Aww thats sad. i adore OUAT. I was hoping since you have done a few references that you may enjoy it as well. That and I am not particularly good at fanfics, I get too rolled up in having to keep true to cannon and such. You're the only one I can enjoy
HolyMaiden Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
TOTALLY! Too early for Regina and Robin, but I'm game for some rumbelle!
riverotter7 Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2014  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
You've done this superbly! I'm still in awe over your so-called "not a costumer" and would like to point out that Yes, Yes you are. Eponine is so beautiful!

Now we'll just wait to see how the Goblin-King flies in as. (squeeee)

The Doctor and Rose!! I love you even more, I didn't even know that was possible.

Oh my, totally loving this!  Can't wait to see the next part!! 
RoronoaEmi Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
That last panel, Sarah looks just like Jennifer Connolly.
And Raoul's costume: pompous. just like he is.
'Ponine and James are so cuuute!! :heart:
And underground boss queen lady. hahaha
RoronoaEmi Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Those "few crucial steps" might not be as far away as she thinks....
EowynsPen Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Love the tie-in between opera and the Chromaggia costume!

"Small yet crucial steps"? Oh I cannot wait to see what Jareth makes of that. :squee:

AHHHHHHHHHHH!!! This is so beautiful, and the colors, and the costumes, I'm just so happy!Is Ten showing Rose the strange customs of some of Earth's other inhabitants? :giggle: :iconlegaspplz: Or will they play a part in this arch? Only time will tell. I cannot wait for Jareth to pop up!!!! :squee:
Vampiyaa Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
You added Ten and Rose in here. I freaking love you. Like, you have NO IDEA. Vous etes absolument genial.
death-lily Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2014
Sarah kind of resembles Elizabeth from Bioshock Infinite: Burial at Sea, especially in that last panel.

Can they interact with the others in the next comic or in a new story plot, that would be awesome!
MamaNekoSama Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2014
The fact that you have Rose and 10 in here makes me incredibly happy. Like… you don't even know <3
Chepseh Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2014
Oh Sarah, you should have taken some gay chum with you ... . Now you are -so- shipper's fair game and you know it. :no: =P

*scrolling through the comments* Oh hey, the OmgDoctorWhoooo comments are a little less than I thought! Seems like I am the only one who misses the drunk pervy goblinish-dressed party animals we saw last time in the ballroom, though. :greetings: :giggle:
