The theme was kinda difficult this time. Not only because I have so many favourite movies from which to choose from but also because how do you translate a movie to a coord? Try to look like the people in it, or somehow include the general feel of the movie in the coord? I tried the latter. And then I chose three movies instead of just one, because let's not be inhumane here. Plus of course three movies call for three different styles - idk that's how it sort of went in my head anyway - so yeah, otome, lolita and aristo.
First favourite: Valerie a týden divu. (Valerie's Week of Wonders)
(Some pretty obvious Marie Tuonetar fangirling went into this one, can you tell? I love her style more than I can express so I'm counting this coord as a small homage to her coordinating skills.)
This movie is quite... unusual. Strange, oddly melancholy, beautiful. I never quite understood it but somehow that's the core of the magic - if I somehow completely got it, every part of it, then I'm sure I wouldn't feel so charmed by it anymore.
Second favourite: Le fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain. (Amelie)
I could watch this movie as many times as possible and still not be tired of it. Something about the magical reality of it always gives me a weird sense of "maybe there are awesome things all around me that I'm just not paying attention to", plus it taught me the best way of eating raspberries.
Third favourite: Lumikuningatar. (Snow Queen)
A childhood trauma source right up there with Bambi! And yet no one's mother even dies in this one. Anyway, it left a huge impression on me, being perhaps the first movie I saw at a movie theatre (a small one near the city library of Lahti). Later when it was shown on television I managed to record it for further trauma.
(The trailer's unintentionally funny at times, apologies. :D)
