This is for anyone who plans on cosplaying from Sweeney Todd.
This particular costume breakdown is for the Demon Barber himself.

I have been cosplaying Sweeney Todd for 3 years now, and have put in a great deal of time researching and looking at pictures of the Sweeney Todd costume. So I thought I would share a bit of what I know.

First we will start out with general items, before I get into smaller details. As you will see in the picture next to this paragraph, you will notice some key items that Sweeney Todd has. If you are going to put together a Sweeney Todd costume, you should at least...

Anthony brings Johanna to Sweeney’s to hide her while he goes to get them a coach.

Unable to locate Sweeney in his room, Toby offers to show them down to the Bakehouse, where he last saw Sweeney and Mrs. Lovett. They go down the stairs, just in time to see Sweeney and Mrs. Lovett preparing to dispose of the bodies of the beggar woman, Judge Turpin, and Beadle.

Trying to stop them from running to the law, Sweeney shoves Toby into a corner, where he crumples and doesn’t get up. Meanwhile, Mrs. Lovett has attacked the unsuspecting Anthony, and has her hands around his throat.

Johanna leaps...

MRS. LOVETT:
Seems a downright shame...
TODD: Shame?
LOVETT:
Seems an awful waste...
Such a nice, plump frame
Wot's 'is name has...
Had...
Has!
Nor it can't be traced...
Bus'ness needs a lift,
Debts to be erased...
Think of it as thrift,
As a gift,
If you get my drift!

No?

Seems an awful waste...
I mean, with the price of meat
What it is,
When you get it,
If you get it...

TODD: HAH!
LOVETT:
Good, you got it!

Take, for instance, Mrs. Mooney and her pie shop!
Bus'ness never better using only pussycats and toast!
And a pussy's good for maybe six or seven at the most!
And I'm sure they can't compare as far as taste!

[Simultaneously]...

found this on imdb:


[SWEENEY]

Lift up your face,
Tilt back your chin, please.
Here, wear this bib, I'll
Shave that stubble away.
I'll show you a face,
As clean as the mornin'
And if I slip, oh, well--
That's okay!

Suddenly Sweeney
Is standing behind you
Tormented by demons
You can't comprehend
Suddenly Sweeney
Is there to provide you
Rest everlasting:
Sweeney's your end!


[MRS. LOVETT]

Nobody ever
Treated me kindly
Perhaps 'cause my meat pies
Taste like the sewer
I met this barber, I'll
Follow him blindly,
He'll cut their throats--
I'll help him, sure!


Suddenly Sweeney
Is standing behind me,...

As I promised, Claire, here it's my drawing. I looked at 2 photos of Sweeney and Mrs. Lovett and I adapted them to my drawing.
So awesome and exciting to draw Helena and Johnny :D

Well, I have to write more so as this can be an article... so sorry for this hehe

MRS. LOVETT:
A customer!
Wait! What's your rush? What's your hurry?
You gave me such a -- Fright, I thought you was a ghost!
Half a minute, can'tcher sit! Sit you down, sit!
All I meant is that I haven't seen a customer for weeks!
Did you come here for a pie, sir?
Do forgive me if me head's a little vague--
(Ugh! What is that?) But...

Pretty women
Fascinating...
Sipping coffee,
Dancing... pretty women
Pretty women
Are a wonder.
Pretty women!

Sitting in the window or
Standing on the stair
Something in them cheers the air.

Pretty women
Silhouetted...
Stay within you,
Glancing... stay forever,
Breathing lightly...
Pretty women,
Pretty women!

Blowing out their candles or
Combing out their hair,
Even when they leave
They still are there.
They're there

Ah! Pretty women, at their mirrors,
In their gardens,
Letter-writing,
Flower-picking,
Weather-watching.
How they make a man sing!

Proof of heaven as you're living,
Pretty women! Yes, pretty women!
Here's to pretty women,
Pretty women,
Pretty women,
Pretty women

MRS. LOVETT:

Easy now,
Hush, love, hush,
Don't distress yourself,
What's your rush?
Keep your thoughts
Nice and lush,
Wait.

Hush, love, hush,
Think it through.
Once it bubbles, then
What's to do?
Watch it close.
Let it brew.
Wait.

I've been thinkin' flowers,
Maybe daisies,
To brighten up the room!
Don't you think some flowers,
Pretty daisies,
Might relieve the gloom?
Ah, wait,
Love, wait.

TODD: (spoken) And the judge? When will I get to him?

LOVETT:
Can't you think of nothin' else?
Always broodin' away on your wrongs
what happened heaven knows how many years ago!

Slow, love, slow.
Time's so fast.
Now goes quickly, see
Now it's past!
Soon will come,
Soon will last.
Wait.

Don't you know,
Silly man?
Half the fun is to
Plan the plan!
All good things
Come to those who can
Wait.

Gillyflowers, maybe,
'Stead of daisies...
I dunno though...
What do you think?

In my opinion Sweeney Todd and Mrs. Lovett made the most dysfunctional couple ever, but in a good way. I loved how Mrs. Lovett had the idea of making pies out of the people that Sweeney Todd had killed.
I would hane to say that Sweeney Todd and Mrs. Lovett put the fun in dysfunctional. I loved how Sweeney Todd and Mrs. Lovett would sing, dance and kill their customers on a daily bases like it was just a job. In my opinion Mrs. Lovett was by all means the more evil out of the two.
I really felt bad for Mrs. Lovett because she loved Sweeney Todd so much and he did not even notice her. The only time he would pay attention to her was when he needed her to do something for him.
It really is a shame because Mrs. Lovett would have made a great wife for Sweeney Todd that is if he loved her at all because she loved him with all her heart even though she knew that he did not love her and yet she would do anything for him.

This is probably going to be the shortest article ever but hey if its concerning Johnny im sure that'll make up for the space!
So i've started considering Sweeney Todd/Johnny Depp slang such as OMJ (Oh my Johnny) and Who gives a todd and Deppinately and so on......But i was wondering if it would be popular? what do ye think?
I am Obsessed with Johnny so i decided to do this I would have put this in a pick but i think this is a lot more personal.

Thx... Aine/Jokerrocks

p.s if you have other ideas for depp slang post 'em

This whole obbsession started one cold winter night sometime in January, i had never heard of Sweeney Todd before or anything about it. i knew Johnny Depp was in a new film with Helena Bonham Carter directed by Tim Burton but i didn't know it was Sweeney Todd.
My friend had seen it and told me of its awsomness and as it had my favorite actor, actress and director in it...how could i miss it! So she leant me the DVD.
I got home at about 9:00pm on a saturday night and thought "oh i have Sweenney Todd, I might as well watch it!" so off i went. i sat down and started the DVD.

After it was finished...

MRS. LOVETT:

There was a barber and his wife,
And he was beautiful
A proper artist with a knife,
But they transported him for life.
And he was beautiful...

(spoken) Barker, his name was. Benjamin Barker.
TODD: What was his crime?
LOVETT: Foolishness.

He had this wife, y'see,
Pretty little thing,
Silly little nit,
Had her chance for the moon on a string.
Poor thing.
Poor thing.
There were these two, y'see,
Wanted her like mad,
One of 'em a judge, t'other one his beadle!
Every day they'd nudge and they'd wheedle!
But she wouldn't budge from her needle!
Too bad,
Pure thing.
So they merely shipped the poor blighter...

So,now I start my story about Sweeney Todd.

In February 2007 my class went to the cinema.We watched a Bully Herbig movie....Before the movie starts,the trailer of Sweeney Todd appears.I was so falle in love with Sweeney Todd there :P
My enemy was so scared of the trailer.After watchin the Bully movie my enemy wanted to beat me up,then I ran behind a big poster of ST.He was scared again...
Few days later I forgot the name of my "love".Since July 2007!(That was the date,when the DVD was in Austria.)I saw the article in a video/DVD magacine and I remembered him!!!Then one week before my 15th b-day I watched ST!What a feeling to see my "skunkman" again!Then the obsession started!

Then I had a lot of styles....

Sweeney Todd is a villain appearing in various English language works starting in the mid-19th century as a barber and an early example of a serial killer. His weapon is a straight razor (or cut-throat razor in British English), with which he slits his victims' throats. In some versions of the story Mrs. Lovett, who is his partner in crime and variously his friend or lover (and whose first name is variously Marjorie, Sarah, Nellie, Shirley or Claudette) hides the crimes by butchering the corpses of Todd's victims, baking their flesh into meat pies, and selling them to unknowing customers. He...

I was in the Random spot and was asked to write a random story. "Have a Little Priest" was playing on my iPod, so I decided to base it off the movie.




There was a barber and his wife, and she was beautiful. She took her barber husband out for lunch every thursday into Nelly's meat pie shop. Little did they know, they weren't eating meat pies at all! They were really eating rotten cherry pie. You see, Nelly Lovette had a difficult time obtaining meat for her pies, so she secretly started gathering cherries. Once she ran out of her entire supply of meat, she turned to the cherries. She noticed...

THE SOUND OF VIOLENCE

Hello, razor, my old friend,
I've come to brandish you again,
Judge Turpin sent me to Australia,
Oh, my sweet Lucy, how I failed ya,
And the bloodlust that's now burning in my brain,
Still remains
I hear the sound...of violence.

In the South Sea I swam alone,
So thin that I was skin and bone,
A sailor saved me from the ocean,
Soon my revenge was put in motion,
London greeted me with the utter sense of gloom,
In which it loomed,
And in the sound...of violence.

Judge Turpin came in to get groomed,
I vowed that he was truly doomed,
Damn Anthony for interrupting...
