sherlockedone asked: Hello from Ukraine! Your shop is amazing! Do u ship the items to Ukraine?
Thank you so much! I have been looking into international shipping since a few people have asked. I would definitely be willing to offer it for my followers! But, just be aware, the cheapest option I’ve found for international shipping is about $17, so it’s a little pricey.
If there is an item you want and need international shipping for, feel free to send me a message, either through tumblr or etsy, and I’ll reserve the item for you with an updated shipping price.
Beautiful! Do you ship overseas?
Thank you! At the moment, I don’t have an overseas shipping price, because I have absolutely no idea how much it would cost. If you are interested in something, let me know what and where you are I will figure out how much it would cost to ship to you.
Hey guys, my Etsy shop is open!
Here’s the link to the shop if you want to take a look at everything. I have some vintage stuff and some other jewelry, and I’ll be adding more throughout the week: http://www.etsy.com/shop/CoriannsCloset
Or if you want just the Pimpernel related stuff: http://www.etsy.com/shop/CoriannsCloset?section_id=11986418
If you order something, make sure to let me know you’re one of my followers!
So I know I’m about a month late, but I found ring blanks and wanted to finish them before I opened up (which will be [fingers crossed] sometime this coming week).
Unfortunately, Michael’s only seems to carry 4 of these ring blanks at a time, and hasn’t replenished their stock yet. So, since I want to keep one for myself, I have three to sell for now; two of the Leslie Howard design ones (pictured below) and one Anthony Andrews design one (using the red wax seal image below). As soon as I can get more blanks, I’ll make more rings, so let me know which of the two you would like to see more of.
nausiwindstrider asked: Alright, someone should write a new script for a revival play or something, and the aforementioned scene will be in it, and everything will be beautiful and nothing will hurt. I'll have to go find your previous post on this matter, because, well it is my heart.
Yes. Both the Richmond scene in all of it’s full, jucy, mushy, romantic, amazing glory and the “dirty old Jew” ending will be included. As for my previous posts about the Richmond scene, I know I branched into a rant about a month ago when talking about the musical, and there have to be at least two or three more back in the bowels of the blog. I’m quite passionate about it as well ;)
Just some fun trivia I found about the 1935 movie:
Alexander Korda (the producer) was Hungarian, and had been born in a town not far from Baroness Orczy’s family’s farm.
Korda had recently had great success with the actor Charles Laughtonin the film The Private Life of Henry VIII, so he asked Laughton to play the role of Sir Percy. But when the announcement went out to the press, the reaction from the Pimpernel’s many fans was negative; the pug-nosed Laughton was thought inappropriate to play the suave Sir Percy.

Me too! I personally LOVE the ending of the book, and have often wondered why no adaptation has used it. I’m sure it has something to do with how horrible the Jew disguise is in terms of stereotyping and antisemitism, but couldn’t we find some other, less offensive disguise for Percy? Couldn’t he just be some old, hunched over Frenchman instead? We really don’t get to see the extent of Marguerite’s devotion for Percy without it. And everything they say to eachother at the end! Gaah it’s so romantic and wonderful!
vivoroni asked: I don't know if I've asked you this before, but... Could you perhaps recommend some Pimpernel fanfiction? :P
Well, the only one that I remember reading that was REALLY good (I wasn’t a very huge fanfic person) was one called “Falcon in the Dive”, and was a sequel to the musical. The musical ends with Percy having the League tie up Chauvelin and drag him off to Paris and deliver him to Robsepierre, claiming that Chauvelin is the Pimpernel. And just to make certain that he believes it, Percy puts his seal ring on Chauvelin’s finger. In this fanfic, Chauvelin convinces Robespierre of what actually happened, and then decides to use his newfound power to his advantage. He convinces arristocrats that he is the Pimpernel, and gets them to trust him before handing them off to the Comitty. He also begins sending notes to the league members, sealed with the seal of the Scarlet Pimpernel, telling them to meet him, and then capturing them one by one until Percy is left to face him alone.
I know I’ve posted it here in the past, but I can’t find it, and my internet searches are coming up blank. Thankfully, being the pack rat that I am, I still have a copy printed out in my “All Things Pimpernel” binder, so if worse comes to worse I’ll retype it and post a link to it, because from what I remember, it was that good.
In the meantime, http://www.fanfiction.net/book/Scarlet-Pimpernel/ has probably the most comprehensive collection of Pimpernel related fanfic. I can’t personally recomend any of them, but a lot of the summaries seem like interesting reads.
