Opinions?

Post by PeachFreak » Sun Dec 25, 2011 2:40 pm

I've got a few ideas for some mysteries going about my head, and I figure that if I'm going to be on winter break for a month, I may as well use the time to write them. I'm working on some cards, but I'm not quite sure how I feel about them. So, I figured I'd ask some opinions both on style and on suspect portrayers.

These are what I have so far:

Very nice, Though Mrs. Meadow-Brook looks more like Mrs. White in my opinion.

Overall, I think that is a great style, and I like where your head is in terms of portrayals. Bea Arthur as Mrs. Meadow-Brook? Spot-on. I want to shake your hand.

If I may be a stickler for a moment, Miss Scarlet's left side seems ... off. Like she's cut off or leaning awkwardly. The tinge of green is weird. Apart from that, though–

Keep going, please.

Well, if you're happy with Mrs. Meadow-Brook than I'm happy, munitzer.

And I've changed Scarlet and Peacock to different actresses. The first post is updated with preliminary female suspects. More may appear, but these are the ones for whom I have a use currently.

I likes the old Peacock better. Miss Peach and Mrs. White are good but Miss Ebony appears to be the world record staring contest holder.

I don't like Miss Ebony very much myself the more I look at her. I'll find a better picture for her.

I do like the new ones, but Mrs. White seems a bit behind the times style wise from the rest lol. More victorian...

I don't like Mrs. Peacock. She seems quite dowdy compared to the rest.

I updated the original post with a few more suspects. I also switched Mrs. Peacock back to my original choice. And the new Lady Lavender is clearly inspired by the interpretation of Cluedokid.

Here's a cast list for everyone who's interested:

Miss Scarlet- Jaclyn Smith of Charlie's Angels fame.
Mrs. Peacock- Angela Lansbury
Mrs. White- Lesley Nicol of Downtown Abbey
Madame Rose- Nell Carter
Mrs. Meadow-Brook- Bea Arthur
Lady Lavender- Dustin Hoffman as Michael Dorsey as Dorothy Michaels in Tootsie
Sra. Mandarino- Mirina Sirtis of Star Trek: The Next Generation
Miss Ebony-Gates McFadden of Star Trek: The Next Generation

I'm not entirely sure who Miss Peach is because I found her picture by accident and with no caption. If you recognize her, feel free to speak up.
