@winslowat3am Hi! Hello! :3 How are you? I hope well! So...i‘m going around making early Halloween art for my favorite tumblr bloggers. I made a little Tim Burton-esque art piece for you! ^-^ A few things:
1 - I used your blog‘s tagline for the artwork‘s tagline ((it‘s always 3AM somewhere, darling)) so that‘s what the black font above your head says in case it‘s hard to see
2 - It is called the midnight game bc I remember you said your house was haunted in 2016 after you played the midnight game ((that‘s where the cute ghosties came from and the light behind you is the portal they flew out of)) and I thought it would be a cool title especially since in the midnight game you‘re supposed to play until from 12am-3am
3 - I tried to do your current hairstyle but I‘m not good at bobs for some reason lol. I was going to give you black eyes like you were possessed by the ghosts too but I was like nah bc I didn‘t wanna be disrespectful >-< And I had to restart the piece twice bc your face is hard to draw as it‘s very specific. I fxcked up your cheekbones and the first face I drew didn‘t look anything like you #cheekbonesmatter
4 - I wanted to give this a kind of tim burton/harry potter/orphan feel bc those are 3 of my favorite things and it is for Halloween! :3
5 - This took me 2 days and I almost forgot to give it to you bc my autism and adhd makes my attention span short af but you I hope you like it lmfao :3
So that is it! \^-^/
Happy early Halloween! 😊🍂

so corpse bride used to be one of my favorite movies when i was a bit younger, and I realized i hadn't watched it quite some time, like a couple of years probably, so i rewatch it figuring maybe I'd have some cute nostalgic memories and fondly recall this being a favorite spooky movie of early teen years and nothing more...
Only to find that I actually think I love it even more as an adult, for different reasons. It's actually so well-written. Surface level you're like "yeah, okay, Tim Burton movie, guy accidentally marries dead woman, shenanigans ensue, but all is right in the end, cute movie." But like. God. It's so good.
It's not about Victor and Emily, and honestly I'm always upset that everything leaves out Victoria as the third, equally as important protagonist, even though yes, she hardly gets any screentime, and that's a crime. It's two equally important stories of Emily, and Victor and Victoria that mesh a bit. Victor is the common thread that pulls the whole thing together (and Lord Barkis, I guess. But like. Fuck him).
It's about Emily learning to be less selfish, to realize that it's time to let go, and Victor and Victoria learning to love each other, and what each of them is willing to sacrifice.
Plus there's some fun dead people and catchy musical numbers. Literally what more could you ask for.
