I have a lot of different feelings connected to this character... At first, I've always loved classical music, I've always loved ballet, and I've always loved Peter Tchaikovsky's "Swan Lake."
Then there was this incredible man called Darren Aronofsky who made the movie "Black Swan" in 2010. I was totally hooked on it, and even more after I wrote a small exam study assignment in 20 pages where I musically analyzed several scores from the movie, and some scenes and included Freud and the analyzed the "shadowsite/doppelgängers." I got really close to the movie, and even more the character whom I so deeply analyzed for two weeks. I'm really "attracted" to Nina's evil twin, the Black Swan, and wanted to recreate it. Also to get to do the make-up and wear a tutu-skirt and points. <3
I made the costume within a week, and wore it at a premiere party with my theater, as it was movie themed.
