Just so you know, I’m feeling rather envious here. :o Damn you Finland and your climate!

I tried to caption but the chiefest thing I get from these gifs is nyhverö
Scenic Design Comparison (Part 4):
Tanz der Vampire (Seinäjoki production, designed by Marjatta Kuivasto) / (Budapest / Vienna Revival design by Kentaur) / (Original Vienna design by William Dudley) / (Tokyo design; designer unknown) / Dance of the Vampires (Broadway design by David Gallo)
Set/Scene: The Library (Bücher, Bücher / Books)
And again the Finns win. Though it doesn’t look as gothic as I’d like, it sure seems to have the most books ;)
The lovely thing about the Finnish library were the booktitles like “Grandma’s best blood recipes” and “G. I. Jyrki”. You couldn’t see none of that from the audience but I love the detail and effort they put into that library — I could have spent hours just examining that bookshelf.
Also it breaks my heart that this fabulous set is probably in a landfill somewhere.

(I’m not sure if this was done before, and if it was I’m really sorry! it’s just that I think we need more love for this beautiful costume in all it’s different incarnations)
