Outfit Post: St. Patrick's Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day from bonnie Ireland! As far as my experience goes, St. Paddy's in Dublin consists of silly hats and a lot of vomit in the streets. I celebrated by going to see a National Theatre Live production of Frankenstein, with Jonny Lee Miller as Dr. Frankenstein and Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock Holmes himself) as the Creature, directed by Danny Boyle. I wasn't sure what to expect, but it was beyond amazing. The sets were steampunk fantasticness, Jonny Lee Miller's Frankenstein vacillated between desperation and pain and scientific pride in his own genius, despite the horrific consequences. Benedict Cumberbatch's Creature stole the show, though. He was intensely physical and really expressed the existential pain and loneliness of his existence. I really wish I could see it again with the leads switched (Miller and Cumberbatch switch roles every night! Dedication).
