'Ello there, guv'nor!
I am quite the huge- wait, sorry, that's wrong- a verrrry huge overly obsessive completely dedicated Helena Bonham Carter fan.
HBC FOR LIFE!
MY FAVOURITE PAIRINGS:
NOW I'M OFF TO STEAL SOME LINES FROM OTHER PEOPLE'S PROFILES!
Ok, ok I totally stole this from someone's profile on fanfiction.net while reading Sweenett stuff because I'm too lazy to write my own and I agree with all of them anyways XD
Not only do you own the DVD and the soundtrack - you know the lyrics off by heart. (I actually own 2 DVDs of it, but that's a case of stupidity, not obsession )
You re-enact Helena's Worst Pies in London in your own kitchen. (Not completely true- I re enact it anywhere and EVERYWHERE all the time.)
You suddenly start singing "A Little Priest" while chopping the vegetables for dinner. (suddenly the guests dont want to eat anymore. Why? Haven't the slightest.)
You think they should play "The Ballad of Sweeney Todd" at your cousin's wedding, instead of "Here Comes the Bride" (Oh! Oh, and my wedding too!)
You choke up whenever you read/hear/are introduced to someone named either: Sweeney/Benjamin/Lucy/Nellie/Lovett/Barker/Turpin/Toby/Todd
You like to do the following past-times:
Blowing out your candle while combing out your hair
Weather-watching (don't forget breathing lightly and sitting at the window!)
Whenever you get into a discussion about movies with your friends, you're out to convince them Sweeney Todd is the BEST movie ever made. Even if they look at you like this O_O. (the usual argument is something like "What is Sweeney Todd?" the argument then ends with me explaining, my friends being convinced I'm clinically insane, a classic face palm from me, and then me walking away because I am FOREVER ALONE.)
You can't walk past a barber shop anymore without thinking of Sweeney Todd. (EVERY. TIME.)
You can't think of PIES, FLOUR or ROLLING PINS anymore without thinking of Mrs Lovett. (What can I say? Also every time.)
When you're in the supermarket, you deliberately go searching in the frozen food section for meat pies. The little ones, mind. (This is one of the truest statements here. I even got one just because )
Everytime you walk down to the sea, you start to hum/think of By the Sea. (YEEESSS. Started singing it and people are just like "what r u doing?". I dream of the day where somebody actually catches on.)
Whenever a problem comes up or you get into a fight with someone, you immediately think: what would Helena/Mrs Lovett do? (bwahaha. Send 'em up ta Mr. T, of course!)
You've tried doing your hair Mrs Lovett's style-messy...and worn it outside. (I've actually done this many many times. I get... Looks. Decidedly not of admiration.)
You want to name one of your kids after one of the Sweeney Todd characters. Well, if it's good enough for Helena, you think! (I worship this lady. Seriously. Helenist, here!)
You've cosplayed/dressed up as one of the characters from Sweeney Todd. (actually I plan to...)
You've not only bought/made the following articles Helena wears in the movie: her black lace gloves, ribboned boots, black corset,
red and white by the sea bustle dress... (I swear if I find any of these they will be mine and I WILL wear them in public. If she does it, so will I!)
Give yourself a gold star if you wear the said articles OUTSIDE. In public. How's THAT for devoted? Or just plain nutty... (Like the latter... If she does it, I do it. Her word is law.)
You catch yourself thinking/talking like Mrs Lovett. Wot, wot was that, love? Me ears isn't wot they once wos. Now, where's that flamin' Mr T gone to? (See? What'd I say, dear? I 'ave a bit of a problem, not mucha one, just a li'l bit.)
