I didn't want to change things up too much. Just build on the original ideas. I love the idea of the tin man being this huge behometh robot. A kind protective spirit. With the lion, making him smaller felt right. Just to push the whole cowardly theme home. I pictured him going into a bezerker rage when he finally gains his courage. Like a tazmanian devil or rabid wolverine. The rest are pretty standard. Although I did made wicked witch young and sexy, just to create a direct contrast with Glinda, the white witch. Plus evil is sexy.
Looking back now, it would have interesting to push the whole technology vs magic theme of OZ. Make it really steampunk. Maybe if I had an extra week :)
Thanks for dropping by!
