Last Thursday I had the opportunity to attend an event for the release of Fifty Shades Darker on Blu-ray/DVD/Digital HD, courtesy of Universal. The theme of the event was to “live like Anastasia,” complete with Man Servants, who were very eager to please. In attendance were members of Official Fifty fan sites and several members of the press. As well as Rosalina (Fifty Shades Darker/Freed Make Up artist) with Mac Cosmetics, Shay Cunliffe (costume designer), and press/media/executives from Universal.
The evening started with drinks, costumes, small set pieces, and props and a camera to make fun group photos.
I had a chance to mingle with some of the press folks, which was an interesting experience, I felt a bit like I was being interviewed. I also had a chance to speak with Rosalina, who was so sweet and admitted to at times being in a bubble and unaware of what the fandom was doing, but also seemed to be aware of all the fans at other times. She’s just a down to earth woman and her partner Laura Burns did my lips, they never looked so good!
Q & A by E L James:
(The questions Erika answer near the end was from Vanessa (@LatersbabyUK), she wanted to know what scene made Erika cry when she was writing Darker from Christian’s POV:
Here are some videos I did during the event on periscope:
I hope I gave you a little bit of a glimpse of what the event was. Erika did a signing before we watched the unmasked version of the film, it was a quick one, they line movers were very strict!
