Ballet Petit: Nutcracker

I just went to see my friend perform in Ballet Petit’s production of the Nutcracker. It was a beautiful show with gorgeous costumes, fun sets, and, of course, amazing dancing. Ballet Petit is a children’s classical ballet school in Hayward, California. Here is a link to their website: http://www.balletpetit.com. This show had, of course, the traditional Nutcracker story: a girl named Clara receives a nutcracker from a magical toymaker, and that night he comes alive and becomes a prince who saves her from the evil Mouse King and takes her to the magical Land of Sweets. The dancing was very … Continue reading Ballet Petit: Nutcracker

Tangled

I dressed up as Rapunzel for Halloween this year! (“How old are you again?” you ask. “Does it matter?” I respond.) Subject This story is, as most Disney fairytales are, very LOOSELY based on the tale of Rapunzel. Normal people would complain about how Disney strays from the original stories, but in my opinion, variation is a bit necessary. Have you read the story of Rapunzel? She’s not exactly the most heroic of characters and you’re not exactly even rooting for her as you read it. I think the Brothers Grimm were more observant Narrators than passionate ones. So, the characters that … Continue reading Tangled

Guardians of the Galaxy – Live Reaction

Yep, all my live reactions are from movies that came out a LONG time ago. XP FYI, this is the first Guardians of the Galaxy, not Vol. 2. Wait, I’m confused–how old is Star Lord? If he was a kid in ’88, won’t he be super old in Infinity War? “These fool things.” What a grandpa thing to say. Actually, Peter’s dad gave you the tumor. PSYCH! It makes me so sad that he doesn’t take her hand and the last thing she gets before she dies is his rejection. But also, THE POOR KID!!!! (Side note: why were the mom’s … Continue reading Guardians of the Galaxy – Live Reaction

Barbie: A Fashion Fairytale – Live Reaction

I have seen this movie before…about a hundred times…but not in a while, so here’s my equivalent of a reaction video! Is the universal opening good? Yes! Better than the other ones! (Although I’m pretty sure I could make the base of Earth in PlayCanvas…) I love this art in the intro credits! I also love the song! This movie is what got me into fashion drawing. Yes, it is. Directed by William Lau. He has made a lot of good Barbie movies. The Queen Ariana dress. With the Queen Ariana actress. Why are the actresses acting so ridiculously?! How … Continue reading Barbie: A Fashion Fairytale – Live Reaction

Barbie as Rapunzel

This is the second ever CGI Barbie movie, for y’all’s information. Subject The old Barbie movies have terrible graphics, but to be honest, the moving part of the animation is pretty okay. Rapunzel is a great character. She’s like 2015 Cinderella–good and kind and loving even when others (*cough*Gothel*cough*) are cruel to her. Another incredibly important thing to note: THIS MOVIE HAS DRAGONS!!! YES! DRAGONS! I loooove dragons, so this is great. Sure, they’re the super stereotypical dragons with large hinds and wings that are too small to be physically able to fly them, but also…la la LA…they’re purple!!! Plus they have personality. Maybe to … Continue reading Barbie as Rapunzel
