Yes! Another musical-actor answered my letter and omg! This is probably the most amazing answer ever! I wrote a letter to Gonzalo Campos who plays ‘Alfred’ in ‘Tanz der Vampire’. He did such an amazing job that my mum, sister and I were so amazed by him. I saw the play for the third time and he’s definitely one of my favourite Alfred-actors.

If you missed the answer from ‘Max Meister’ who plays ‘Herbert’ check it out here.

First of all his handwriting is so pretty! (And he is really good-looking too). I love that he wrote a whole page back to me. How cute is that?! I’ve never got an answer where the person put so much effort into a letter.

Of course I had to ask him a few questions and he kindly answered them! I am just so happy!

1. How hard is it to stay awake during ‘Carpe Noctem’?

In this scene ‘Alfred’ lies on a bed and falls asleep and has a night mare.

Answer: It isn’t hard to stay awake during ‘Carpe Noctem’ because the music is very loud and I’m also going over lyrics, scenes, etc.

2. What other character would you like to play?

What other character I’d like to play? Well, I don’t know. I guess Marius in ‘Les Misérables’ or Raoul in ‘Phantom of the Opera’.

3. I asked him if he liked the city he’s currently playing in.

I love this city! And the audience is very attentive and very loving with us.

4. What is your favourite scene in ‘Tanz der Vampire’?

My favourite scenes’ I would say maybe …. ‘Draussen ist Freiheit’ or the reprise at the very end.

 

How amazing is it that he answered all my questions and took so much time for me! He is such a cute and charming guy and I just want to see him again for so bad. This really made my day and I couldn’t be happier with his answer.

Let me know what you think of this in the comments!

Have an awesome day!

Love, x

Backstage tour – Tanz der Vampire 

June 17, 2017

Today I went to the backstage tour of my favourite musical. Two days ago I did the exact same thing with my amazing mum and amazing sister and I was a little bit disappointed.

If you read my Mary Poppins backstage tour review you will know that this made my day, week, month. It’s one of my favourite days from this year because I was so happy and excited and had such an amazing day.

I always make an effort and dress nicely so on Thursday I wore my new favourite dress and my mum made my hair for me.

 

I wore a pink lipstick and loved my look.

On Saturday I went for a more casual look and wore some black trousers and a dark red shirt with hearts on it and a purple-red lipstick.

Of course it was incredible being there with my mum and sister but the magic was missing. The guy who did the tour was really nice and charming but super nervous and had some cards where he read the facts from. Not all the time but quiet often. The guy who joined him, so that nobody goes missing in this big house, was super unchilled and stressed the whole time when we took a second longer to look at something.

But today I’ve went for the second time. Why? Because I met a girl on the internet and we planned to do this together. I was really nervous because I’ve never met her and I am probably not meeting her again any time soon.

We were a massive group so they had to split it into two smaller groups like they did on Thursday too. I said we’re taking the second group because I was hoping that my favourite guide was there but she sadly wasn’t, that was really disappointing on Thursday too.

After a few minutes the woman opened the door and welcomed us to the backstage tour. She seemed nice so I was excited for the tour. We were a really big group but it worked so good and everbody was listening. We placed our bags in a little corner so we don’t have to carry them around for an hour and then she started with a little resume of the show for those who didn’t see the show before. She starts telling a little bit of the story and a woman next to me goes: ‘Oh, I think we are wrong here’. I was like what? Then she said to her daughter: ‘Get your grandma we are wrong here’. By that time the guide saw that something wasn’t right and asked what’s wrong. And the woman said: ‘ we thought this was the backstage tour for Mary Poppins…… ‘. What?! First of all look at that picture:

You get a key chain with a sign that says TANZ DER VAMPIRE. They woman tells that she’s going to protect us so no vampires bite us and they still don’t get it? This was so hilarious! The whole group including the guide laughed so much and on the whole way we took to get behind the stage everybody kept laughing and I said: ‘ wait I thought this was about a Nanny? Didn’t know she gets bitten’. So the tour started so good and we had a great vibe because everybody couldn’t believe that this happened and we couldn’t stop laughing.

This time we took the right way to the stage. On Thursday we took the left way so it was really nice to get a different view of everything. We saw the bathtub and she explained that they are using real foam. We saw the doll of the professor and she explained a few things about that. And then we went to the blackbox where the actors get dressed and change their costumes during the show. On Thursday I saw the blackbox of the women and today I saw the blackbox of the men so this was really cool and exciting. I saw where Max and Gonzalo have their costumes. This was so cool for me! She said that there are about 120 changes during the show and that every actor has about 13 changes. For some of them they have a few minutes and for some of them only seconds. So she showed us where they get changed when they literally have only 15 seconds. Then it was time to go on to the stage.

Last time the curtain was down so you couldn’t see where the people are sitting later and this time it was down too which is a bit sad but today the gallery was down which was so cool to see. She explained that they need ladders so the audience can see them. She also explained how they get into the graves and that they find them because of different coloured lights and that they croll underneath the graves to get into them.

We saw the house and the tiny beds which is really cool to see and so crazy. The beds are so little but when you see them later in the show you think that they are huge.

Then it was time for some sport as our guide said. She wanted to climb to the 4th floor but we made a little stop on the third and she showed us the costumes and we were allowed to touch them because they don’t use them anymore. I love stuff like that and it’s always so fun to see and touch them.

Then we climbed a floor ahead and she explained things about the hair and make up. She showed us how the blood thing works. They have little packages with blood in it. Before they bite someone they put them into their mouths and then spit it onto the neck. They also spit the little plastic thing that’s left on to the stage. I’ve never witnessed that to be honest. Of course it’s really interesting to hear what the blood tastes like and she said it tastes a little bit of strawberry. She gave a little container around with the blood inside and yes…. one girl really tried it and said it tastes of strawberry. But that container is lying around their for ages so I really didn’t want to try that… it looked really sticky.

Then we saw a few pictures of the count and professor and how they get paint on their faces. Then she told us a few things about the history of the play and then we climbed down and went into the theatre.

She said a few facts about the theatre and how many people work for one and during the show. We saw the technic group checking and cleaning everything which is my favourite thing about that tour. They checked if the grave-wall is working so we saw that going up and down. We saw the paths where the professor and Alfred walk on. I really didn’t want to leave.

Because we were such a big group the tour was a bit longer than an hour which I think is amazing. I liked the tour better this time because the group was much funnier and much more interested and excited. The guide was confident and because she didn’t have to read from cards she was able to give us a lot more information and she was really funny too. I said to her at the end that she did a great job and she was really happy about that.

After that we went to the stage door where the actors go in and out and we saw a few but just talked to two for a second, well I didn’t say much. I planned to go back later and wait until they come out after their last show but I wasn’t feeling it.

I had a nice morning during the show and I really wanted to write this to keep both of these days as memories.

I really wished my mum and sister where there today because I think they would have enjoyed the tour so much more.

Let me know in the comments if you read the whole thing and if you made an internet friend before.

Love, x

June favourites 

Prepare yourself, it’s coming…. : I can’t believe another month passed already. But honestly, I can’t!!! How is it July already…. so so crazy. But this means I am sharing what I’ve been loving this past month with you today.

I love reading these kinds of post so as always let me know your favourite things from June in the comments or just link your June-favourites-blogpost in the comments.

Beauty:

 

As always I have to share my new favourite face masks with you. I am so in love with the Garnier face masks and I did a whole blog post about them so check it out here.

 

But there was another mask I completely fell in love with. I am a huge watermelon-fan so when I found this mask I just had to try it.

The most refreshing face mask 

I really enjoy wearing a lipstick and especially red ones. But in my little lipstick collection a bright red lipstick was missing. Luckily I found one and it’s been my favourite thing to wear this last month!

 Blogging:

This month was so crazy for me in the bloggingsphere. Two amazing bloggers were so kind to give my blog a whole post of attention. They shared what they love about my blog and said such amazing kind things.

Cheila and Angela thank you so much for being so kind. I am so happy that I met you online. Love you!!

I also reached (can’t believe I am saying this) 400 followers! This is so exciting and still feels a bit unreal. Thank you so much to everybody who follows my blog and reads my posts about weird obsessions. Love you!

 

Fashion:

I found the most amazing and gorgeous dress in June. My amazing mum bought it for me and I love to wear it. It’s pink, it’s pretty, it’s perfect. I feel so special and nice in it and I’ve been just so obsessed wearing this.

The most gorgeous dress

I really loved wearing dresses in June. I felt so comfortable in them and because it was so hot where I live, dresses were just the perfect thing to wear.

Speaking of a pink dress I am still pink-obsessed and pink was my favourite colour in June too. One of my favourite posts that I uploaded this month was My pink obsession post where I went through my old pictures and found some amazing pink outfits.

Pink obsessed since 1997

I also loved wearing my ‘new’ sunglasses which I got in May and wanted to do a post about them but wasn’t happy with the pictures. I wanted to have these sunnies for so bad and I am so happy I got them.

Mango


Food:

 

Starting drinking them again was probably a bad mistake, but honestly I feel with the end of June my obsession with these ended a bit. But my mum used to make these for me in summer sometimes and it was just so nice making them again and they are so so tasty.

Chocolate milkshakes

 

Movies:

 

I saw an amazing movie this month called ‘Before I fall’. I was planning on doing a review but then decided not to. It is one of the most amazing movies I’ve ever watched so if you’re interested in a review, let me know in the comments. I saw it together with my mum and she absolutely loved it too. It really is an amazing movie.

If you are following my blog for long enough you may have seen my Bookclub-posts. I talked about a book called ‘Everything Everything’ and this month my mum surprised me and my sister and we saw the movie together. The movie was really sweet and a nice watch, so I recommend checking it out.

 

Music:

I discovered a few songs this past month and I’ve been so so obsessed with them!

‘Power’ – Little Mix

‘Body like a Back road’ – Sam Hunt

‘When did your heart go missing’ – Rooney

‘New Romantics’ – Taylor Swift

‘Ride’ – Twenty one pilots

‘Chocolate’ – the 1975

 

Random:

If you read my May favourites you will know that I’ve been so obsessed with an iced-lolly with the name Cactus. Because of that I discovered my love for cacti and got a little bit obsessed with them. I shared a mini-cacti-series and had so much fun. Sorry to all of you who are cactus obsessed because of me now.

I am also still obsessed with the musical ‘Tanz der Vampire’. I wrote a few letters to my favourite actors and did get some responses. I also did something so fun which I am sharing with you next month.

I also loved watching YouTube videos of someone playing Mario kart. I loved playing it in the background whilst doing things. It was really relaxing and calming to watch. I am currently applying for Unis and felt so stressed and overwhelmed so watching this really calmed me down and gave me a moment to breathe. (his channel is called Domtendo)

And last but by far not least Pretty little liars. This month I saw the last episode of PLL. It is my favourite series and the last episode was just so emotional. I am so happy I was able to follow the journey of five amazing girls as well as the journey of so many other characters.

I would love to hear what your favourite posts of mine were this month. And if you want you can also share your favourite post of yours in the comments.

HerbErt answered – vampire mail 

First of June

Hi everybody,

I recently wrote a letter (Writing to the vampires ) to one of my favourite actors from the musical ‘Tanz der Vampire’ (‘Dancing vampires’). If you read my ‘Writing my first fan mail’ post you will know that my whole fan-mail-experience didn’t start the best. But, this time I got an answer and I am so so happy about it!

First of all a massive thank you to Max (who’s never going to read this ;)) for answering my letter. As you can tell, I am really excited about that! This month is going to be good!

He’s such an amazing actor and I love his performance as ‘Herbert’. He really turned the whole evening into such a magical, exciting and unforgettable one.

And now I’ve got an autograph :). I have to figure out where I should put this, but this is just so cool!

This musical really is my favourite one and I love everything about it. So of course I had to ask Max a few questions and he amazingly answered them. My sister and I were so excited about this and we are really happy with what he wrote.

1. What is your favourite song/scene from ‘Tanz der Vampire’ (‘Dance of the vampires’)?

‘Das Gebet’ (‘Say a prayer’)

2. Would you like to play the Von Krolock one day or any other role?

Von Krolock

3. What is your favourite musical?

‘Beauty and the Beast’ and ‘Mary Poppins’

4. What’s the best about the audience? (I asked him this about a certain city)

The fans

5. What’s the hardest part on being a vampire?

The lust of blood

6. What was the funniest thing that happened to you behind the stage?

He nearly had to go on stage without his costume … 😀 I think everybody would have love that 😉

 

I think he could so play ‘Bert’ in ‘Mary Poppins’ one day. That would be so cool, but I am hoping that he’s not going back to Hamburg for too long. Although I probably would find a way to see him again. My sister and I want to go to the Theater and wait until he comes out to talk to him for a few minutes. Or maybe my mum can talk for me 😀 I am quiet shy in these situations. A lot of people always wait outside and they always tell me how amazing it is and what a great experience it is, so I definitely want to do it, someday ;).

I was a tiny bit disappointed that he didn’t wrote thanks for your present or something like this, but today (June 18) he uploaded this to his Instagram:

Who can spot my little present? SO happy he liked my present! He also walked pass me, but I am going to tell you that story in a different post ;).

I hope you have an amazing day!

Love, x
