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 Du will see in the picture Weiter to this paragraph, Du will notice some key items that Sweeney Todd has. If Du are going to put together a Sweeney Todd costume, Du should at least...

Seems a downright shame...
TODD: Shame?
Seems an awful waste...
Such a nice, plump frame
Wot's 'is name 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 Du get my drift!


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

Good, Du 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 oder seven at the most!
And I'm sure they can't compare...

I know lots of fans, such big Fans that they know EVERYTHING, then sadly they come across a quiz. How many years have Johnny Depp and Tim Buirton been working together? When I saw that I felt crazy, umm....15 years? 4? I chose one and got it wrong, but heres my thought.

You think Du know everything, Du do, That Frage and alot of quizes on Fanpop say how many years have they worked together, BUT! Thats not a Frage that has to do with Sweeney Todd!!!
It has to do with Tim and Johnny!
So if Du get Fragen about Tim oder Johnny oder Helena wrong, but Du get the ones about the movie, Du know...

Wait! Don't Du go, don't Du hurry. I almost didn't see Du come, can'tcha sit, sit Du down SIT! All I meant is that the customers keep coming in, did Du come here for a pie, sir? Do forgive me if this place is such a mess. But Du can't imagine all the stress!
All the people crowding in, I just have no time, sir! And there's always someone wanting some Mehr pies! Right Du are sir, would Du like the gin with some Mehr ice?
Mind Du I can hardly blame them. There are probably the best pies in London! I know why everybody loves them, I know it, I make them. And good? Yes! The best pies in...

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 oder lover (and whose first name is variously Marjorie, Sarah, Nellie, Shirley oder Claudette) hides the crimes Von butchering the corpses of Todd's victims, baking their flesh into meat pies, and selling them to unknowing customers. He...

First of all:
Enough of all this blaming judge Turpin on every single bad thing that ever happened!

The man has become something of the big bad wolf around here, the worlds biggest scapegoat!
I know, i know. He desired a pretty woman, used his authority to falsley imprisoned her husband to get him out of the way, and than assaulted her in a room fool of other rich people that found the whole thing to be a great big laugh.
I am not at all saying that what he did was not wrong, i'd be a complete fool to ever think such a thing, nor am i justifying his actions in any way, but just let me explain something....

These are probably the worst pies...

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 Zeigen 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...

It's to the tune of what Depp sings in Johanna(Reprise), and Anthony is not in it. oder the crazy beggar woman. Hope Du enjoy it xx

Yes, Du are beautiful and pale,
with yellow hair,

I wanted Du beautiful and pale,
with yellow hair,
and Du were

And Du are beautiful, what then,
with yellow hair,
like wheat.
And we have met again,
My little dove,
My sweet,

Hello, Johanna!
You're here, and again your mine!
I'm fine, Johanna!
I'm fine!

And now I shall hear your voice,
my schildkröte dove,

I still have reason to rejoice,
The way ahead is clear

I was in darkness,
I was blind, with...

I found this and thought it was insane!
Mrs. Lovett Improves Her Pies

Sweeney was a barber
In Fleet straße near the Strand
Cocksure was his nature
And Cockney was his brand.

Lovett was his neighbour,
A cook from Cubitt Town,
Sharing half a cellar,
They both sought high renown.

Sweeney Todd loved Lovett,
But loved her money more;
Planned a treat, did Lovett
For Sweeney, her amore.

Hair-cuts were a penny
And pies brought half a bob
Meat was too expensive,
But Sweeney'd do the job.

Lovett sagte to Sweeney,
'Why don't Du cut their throats?
Drop them in our cellar,
We'll even sell their coats.'

Sweeney thought about...

Green finch, and linnet bird,
Nightingale, blackbird,
How is it Du sing?
How can Du jubilate
sitting in cages
never taking wing?
Outside the sky waits
Just beyond the bars...
How can Du remain
staring at the rain
maddened Von the stars?
How is it Du sing
How is it Du sing?
Green finch. and linnet bird,
nightingale, blackbird
How is it Du sing?
Whence comes this melody
constantly floating?
Is it rejoicing oder merely aloaming?
Are Du discussing?
oder fussing?
oder simply dreaming?
Are Du crowing?
Are Du screaming?
Ringdove and robinet
is it for wages?
Singen to be sold?
Have Du decided it's safer in cages
Singen when you're told?
My cage has many rooms
damask and dark...
Nothing there sings,
not even my lark.
Larks never will, Du know,
when they're captive.
Teach me to be more
Green Finch, and Linnet Bird,
nightingale, blackbird,
teach me how to sing.
If I cannot fly...
Let me sing.

Hello, razor, my old friend,
I've come to brandish Du 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...

Oh, Ben Barker was fine, his life seemed just divine
With his Lucy hand in hand
But Judge Turpin was there, he liked to sneak and stare
Like some pervert Invisible Man
Then something went wrong
And Du know, before long,
Poor old Ben found himself in a jam:
But he came back to that place,
Pale makeup on his face,
And this is how the story ran:

So Sweeney Todd, Hannibal Lector, and Titus Andronicus all walk into a bar.
Okay, so starting a review with a joke might not be the best idea. But never the less, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet straße is considered the first “Musical thriller.” It is one of composer Stephen Sondheim’s most well-known pieces of Musik and has won a ton of awards and there are productions and tours everywhere…you get the drill. It is personally one of my Favorit Musicals (in the oben, nach oben ten) and like Phantom I was hesitant to review this film, but gathered my courage and went ahead. The film is actually...

After Nellie's dramatic explanation of why she didn't tell him his wife had lived, poor, miserable Sweeney decided that he needed someone to fill his empty heart, even if she was insane. They danced, sang, moved away, and lived happily in a sick, twisted way. Sweeney Todd was never the same, but he was a bit happier with Nellie Von his side. They had two children, 2 dogs, and a cat. the whole family lived together until their children went to college. then, Nellie ans Sweeney died at the same age, 102.

Sweeney: That Judge must die!
That Judge must die!
I really think
that Judge must die!

Mrs. Lovett: Would Du like
a nice meat pie?

Sweeney: I do not want
your awful pie,
I have to get
the Judge to die!

Mrs. Lovett: Would Du like one
Von the sea?

Sweeney: I would not like one
Von the sea.
Now, please, strange woman,
leave me be!
I do not like
your lousy pie.
Now let me plot:
The Judge must die!

Mrs. Lovett: Would Du live
above my shop?
I kept your razors
and your strop!

Sweeney: All right. I'll live
above your shop.
I'll use my razors
and my strop.
I'll slit their throats,
then they will die.
We'll turn my patrons
Into pie!
