I've taken part in the last two challenges for [community profile] iconthat - you make three icons for the comm, but I had trouble narrowing it down, so here are my challenge entries, plus a few extra for each.

I am a bit tired for proper posts (partly for good reasons, too!) so have some gifs of a young Margaret Lockwood in The Beloved Vagabond (1936) with Maurice Chevalier. She was probably still 19 when they filmed it.

Deciding on what to icon next takes far longer than making icon sets... Anyway, I remembered that I wanted to cap and icon some of the Margaret Lockwood films and as this set was clearly meant for The Wicked Lady (1945), that's what I did. (Featuring Margaret Lockwood, Patricia Roc, James Mason, Griffith Jones & Michael Rennie.)

Some random icons and mini-sets I've made recently or found lurking on my hard drive. Margaret Lockwood, quotes, some random old TV peoples, and Once Upon A Time.

1. In Yuletide, I see that TWO people have offered the 1968 Dracula. I am all faint with the shock. I would have been matchable with just my three nominated super-obscure fandoms! (But possibly difficult.) In celebration, I removed one of my other requests. I was worrying about maybe not wanting it quite as much as the others - and two other people have similar requests so there's a chance of fic I will enjoy anyhow. (I don't think I've ever done that before.)


2. Over on AO3, someone has translated a previous Yuletide fic of mine (Of Elements and Existence) into Russian. I can't read Russian, but putting it in Google Translate suggests (despite its usual incoherency) that they did a good job, as I can certainly recognise my fic coming back at me.


3. I am continuing my voyage into old film! Well, old film containing Margaret Lockwood, anyway. I have now watched her first leading role in the 1938 Carol Reed film Bank Holiday. Not very spoilery review plus gifs )

Do you know what The Lady Vanishes is? Apart from a film I should have seen years ago; I feel deprived on behalf of a teenaged me who would have loved it to death. And apart from the oldest thing I have ever watched in my life (as far as I can think); the flickering was a culture shock to start with. Anyway, it's a perfect Yule-fandom discovered just too late and way too early, that's what it is.

Cut for brief comments and gifs )
