Last week was the fall break from school. And guess how I spent it? I wallowed in my utterly pitiful state of sickness. I was sick through ALL the break. 10 days. And it sucked so hard (since I was supposed to have been sowing on my cosplay all that time.)
But I did do one cool thing to remember the break by! I went to see BATMAN LIVE last Saturday!
I went with my parents - it'd been ages since we'd done anything together like that. My mom and I in front of the stage on that polaroid.
I got those batman shaped papers from the show as a kind of souvenir. I'm such a collector.
I wore my Batman jeans to bee a fan, haha. And my BOOM tee - sort of cartoonish. Some people looked at my jeans with jealousy and I even got a few compliments on them!
BEWARE: I will post pictures from all of the show. If you're going to see the Live I'd advice you not to read on.
The location (that looks so much smaller on these photos than how it is in reality). The stage was set up as Gotham City before the show started. I loved that miniature of Arkham Asylum!
And then the light on the (Batman shaped) screen changed and we all knew the show was starting.
Out came all of these random people and a speaker read aloud from what was obviously headlines and newspapers - talking about crime and the dark night protecting Gotham. It was a really cool way of introducing Batman.
Catwoman and Batman fighting on rooftops - they really put the giant screen to use in this scene and it actually worked.
Catwoman has never been a favourite of mine and I really didn't fancy her costume. But she was sort of cool gliding down that rope to steal some diamant.
The scenography was really simple thanks to the screen but it was just so fitting for Batman! I especially liked the circus - and the acrobats was so great.
More bendable women. And the Riddler!! I loved him! His movements were so fluid and yet powerful! I really like his character too. Two-face actually annoyed me in the show though.
Cool fighting sequence! And massive Joker prop!
Sometimes they'd change scenes by flipping through a comic book that came alive just like in that gif. It was so great! That was absolutely my favourite moments of the show since it was so effectual and created the perfect frame for a Batman tale.
Harley Quin being absolutely amazing. And the grand finale before the intermission - shooting those batman shaped papers (further up depicted) off the stage!
More Jokerness followed the intermission. And Harley just got greater. Look at that body language! She was a treat for the eye - even my father said she was his favourite!
And then. THE BATMOBILE. It was really neat. It just did not have as much stage time as I'd thought it would have which was a shame - I liked how aerodynamic it looked.
Those men in hanging chains means that the action now took place in Arkham Asylum - gosh, I loved that setting! Really eerie - and Scarecrow was so scary haha!
Poison Ivy (who had a ridiculously long introduction seeing as she only had 5 minutes on stage) + Batman and Robin checking out Catwoman's ass.
I liked the show even though Batman himself was really lame (his armor was way to shiny and he was really stiff). The villains rocked my socks!
It's really nice to have this memory to look back on already.

This weekend about 40.000 shooting stars appeared on the sky over Denmark. I went out for approximately 20 minutes - it was damn cold! - and I must have seen 50 or 60 shooting stars! It was really amazing. One of them lasted for 5 seconds and had a long burning tail after it - in the news they said that one of those was the largest that had been seen. And I saw it! So lucky, since the star rain lasted for 4 hours.
Yesterday I went to watch Footloose with Rikke. We are both members of Biozonen (a movie organization) and got the tickets for only 50 DKK! Plus it's not premiering until Thursday so we got to see it early.
I love 80'ies movies and had been sceptical about this remake, since the Fame remake was bullocks. But I actually really liked this one! They kept true to the old movie (like sticking to Ren having that Bubble) yet made some things even better - at least in my opinion.
In the old movie only white people showed themselves, but the new one had loads of black people in it. And it seemed so natural! That was really great.
The fact that Ariel had lost her brother also made her being such a slut more acceptable, because in the old movie you're just kind of mad at her all the time since her character is so lame.
Rikke and I both really liked Willard though since he was dorky and tough at the same time, haha. In the 80'ies vers. he is more just tough.
A reaaally good thing about this movie was that you went out of the theater with a smile on your face. And we both danced to the buss stop singing Footloose, footloose, everybody get footloose.
Friday I watched Drive with some girls from my class. We really enjoyed it! The fact that it was filled with violence without being an action movie intrigued me greatly. The whole mood and pace was really forcefully slowed down and that did wondrous things for the movie. It was really interesting to see someting different for a chance. And Ryan did really good - even though he didn't have much lines (he is a quiet character) you understood the driver.
Look at this cute little lamb!! Lambi gave them away. Really weird publicity stunt..
Autumn has arrived in the Store! Pooh, Jack and Lion King stops by. It's really nice and pretty to look at!

Last Saturday I went to the Villain & Hero party, which was held for the 2nd time. Last year I didn't really like partying in my beloved Jessie cosplay since I feared I'd spill something on it etc. so I did not dress particularly up. Rasmus said he'd go as Hipster Spiderman (with surprise boble of text that ruled my world that evening), so I just joined him as Hipster/Casual Black Cat... or something... hahah, I didn't really care all that much. But I am glad I at least wore a wig.
Once we got to the club I practically tore my wig off and started dancing. And now, looking at these photos, I realize... My hair is bloody long! When did it reach this length? That is so CRAZY.
Dancing like pros. Or not. Can you guess what we're dancing in that first photo? Yes, 'cause it's soo not Macarena.
Happy ninja turtles, everything-hating Kim Pine and Polaroid from the evening! It was completely black around us when I took it, so I couldn't see in the little mirror on the front of the camera - and could not see where I was shooting. So I was quite proud to have gotten all the text included in the frame hahah!
MULTIPASS. And Jonas Schmidt (danish comedian)showed up. Which was epic. Of course he was paid to do it, but it was still really funny. I had a good time - too bad I had to go home early, since I had work Sunday. But a lot of people had already gone, so I don't think I missed much.
