Sweeney Todd or Depp group

Ok, so I am kinda dieing to form a Sweeney Todd group of some sort. lol None of my friends would cosplay from the movie with me because they keep themselves busy with their anime cosplays and don't know the movie all too well. But I think it would be great to have a Sweeney group. I know the movie is rather old, but I still love to cosplay from it. If I did start a group, I guess I would say the role of Sweeney is already filled, but we can probably have more than one Sweeney (there are never too many Sweeneys at a con lol) and I would be happy to give up my position as Sweeney for anyone who wants to replace me, because quite honestly I know there are much better Sweeneys, and I'd want the group to be as accurate as possible.

If not, it would be awesome to have a Burton/Depp cosplay group. That would be a lot of fun as well.

So if anyone is around the NY, PA, NY area and wants to be a part of a Depp or Sweeney cosplay group let me know, it would be awesome!

I wish I was around the NY area! I'm on the other side of the country and just started working on a new cosplay costume! I'm working on a cosplay of Depp himself :P Love Johnny Depp characters. They are awesome. I would be all in.

P.S. As I said before, you're an awesome Sweeney! All the best with getting that group together! Maybe in the future I can make it over to NY for an event!

I see you found your way to the forums. lol Nice

Anyways, yea, all the Depp/Sweeney cosplayers seem to be so far away from me. Its actually really upsetting. If you do ever make it out to the NY area, let me know! We should gather more Depp people. I am actually surprised that there aren't many around the Eastern part of the US.
But yea, you will make an awesome Depp! Is that what is in your icon? If it is, it looks just like him, Ooohhhhh I'm so jealous.

Thanks a lot! Makes me very happy, especially since your an amazing Sweeney yourself. In my opinion, definitely 10x better than me. You actually pull off his character so well. Grrrrr... I wish I could do that. I want to be a tall caucasian male please!!!! lol

I will definitely keep you posted if I ever have plans to get back out to the east coast. *crosses fingers*

And yes, the icon I currently have up is my Depp cosplay in progress. I still am still working on piecing it together. Not sure exactly what outfit/costume I want to use for it.. I was thinking maybe one of his recognizable premiere outfits. I just got the glasses in today. Although they are perfect style and near identical to the moscot lemtosh ones he wears, they are a bit too big for my face. I need to get a smaller size. I am trying to find ones at a reasonable price. Ones I just got are $12. Sadly, although a lot of the replica glasses -- ones that look like the moscot lemtosh but aren't the moscot lemtosh -- look perfect, almost all of them are too large. I may have to save up and just cave and get the real deal. We will see though :P

Thank you again for you compliments -- they mean a lot! And actually, Depp isn't really that tall. I think he is about 5'7"?? I'm not all that tall either :P lol

Yes definitely let me know when/if you come back out to the eastern part of the US. meeting up with another Sweeney/Depp cosplayer is always fun.

You found good glasses for your cosplay for only $12? That's really good. But yea, I think you should do one of Depp's premiere outfits, otherwise it might just look like you dress like that everyday, although that isn't bad either, lol
If you plan on cosplaying Depp a lot, I would suggest just getting the actual glasses. That will make your cosplay extremely accurate and the glasses will last you longer since they will be of really good quality.

You're welcome! Depp is tall, he's 5'10". Whereas I am only 5'3" >.< How tall are you?
Ugh its so annoying! I wanna be taller and resemble him more!

I'm only about 5'5". Dang. I thought Depp was around 5'7". He didn't seem that tall when he was here at Disneyland.

And yeah, I was thinking of getting the actually glasses themselves, but they are so expensive! They are like $200+. I don't know if my bank account can handle that right now.. lol

Wow so you are only 2" taller than me, I would have never expected that. You saw Depp at disneyland? Lucky, I would love to see or meet Depp

Hmm I guess you should save up then. $200 doesn't seem too bad. I paid $500+ for all my Sweeney Todd stuff. Lol

I saw the back of Depp's head :P I'm a cast member at Disneyland. One of my fellow cast members said that she was in one of the backstage elevators with Depp and his entourage and he wasn't all that tall. She guessed around 5'7".

Yeah, I'm thinking of saving up.

Are you still a cast member at Disney land? That is awesome! Do you cosplay as Jack Sparrow there?
Being in an elevator with Depp seems awesome... I'd love to be in that situation. lol That sounds creepy, but I promise, it's really not. I just want to meet Depp some day...

You should become one of those hired Jack Sparrows, that would be awesomely fun! I'd definitely look into that if I was male and resembled Depp well. Thats awesome though! I'd love to go to that as Sweeney and scare the little children (I hate kids)

Yea, I have heard that too. He seems like a really chill guy. Unlike most celebrities

lol Oh, I would definitely look into it... though sadly you need to be AT LEAST 5'7" I believe to be considered for a male face character. I fall a few inches short
