I started rehearsal's for Disney's Aladdin this past Monday and let me just say this...
Not only will I be in a full blue bodysuit as the Genie (which means, unlike Elphaba, I will only have to paint my face blue), but because I have some exposition as another character who is not the Genie at the top of the show, I will be costumed in a burqa.
Yep, I'm going to be Disney's Genie. In a burqa. I couldn't make that up if I tried.
I just saw these rather hot drawings of Disney heroes by David Kawena over at Meatcute and this one of Aladdin kind of did me in.
No burqa here. Not even close.
Mr. Kawena's other Disney heroes are just as hot. Check 'em out at deviantART.
Aladdin and Tarzan are mine.
(For Aladdin, there's a "rub my lamp" joke in there somewhere...)
