i would definitely stalk a rabbit, accidentally fall down a hole, and eagerly await the fall until i land haphazardly in wonderland, wouldn't you?

Long titles equal long and rant-worthy posts, so sit back, get your artificially flavored microwave popcorn ready, and prepare to read and gawk in awe. Clearly, since this blog is very knew, and those of you reading (if anyone is reading) are unaware of my unhealthy obsession with anything and everything to do with Alice in Wonderland, you will finally be able to understand my love for the story when reading this post. Not only do I day dream endlessly about the fabulous costumes, plot, and hidden meaning behind the story, but I am endlessly and obsessively googling for Alice in Wonderland inspired collections, clothes, hairstyles, makeup, and more.
For those of you who aren't familiar with the oscar-winning, Alice in Wonderland costume designing genius, her name is Colleen Atwood. Her designs are whimsical and TO DIE FOR gorgeous. I kind of would do anything to get my hands on one of her pieces.

If you want an idea of just how amazing the Alice in Wonderland movie is, here are a few quotes that may suffice your curiosity.

"Sorry, Hamish. Can't marry you. You're not the right man for me. Sorry if that troubles your digestion." -Alice Kingsley


"I'm investigating things that begin with the letter M." -The Mad Hatter


The Mad Hatter: "Have I gone mad?"

(Alice checks hatters temperature)

Alice: "I'm afraid so. You're entirely bonkers. But I'll tell you a secret. All the best people are."



Be ready for about a zillion pictures. I have some sketches and the finished costumes. If you haven't watched the Alice in Wonderland movie, directed by Tim Burton, you better go watch it because then you will be able to understand, and rant with me, about my obsession.


Suppose this would be a design for the Red Queen, yet again, love it.


Some random designs, all either for Alice, the Red Queen, White Queen, or any of those other female characters, I'm assuming. All give me the sense of a little gothic inspiration, which I love.


Here is the oh so sexy Johnny Depp, as The Mad Hatter.


Here are some designs for Alice. Lovin' the first one, def my fav from the entire movie.


Now for the final designs/costumes. White Queen, rockin' the white hair and the princess dress, while Alice is in the midst of fighting the Jabberwocky, looking all badass and fierce in her metal armor.


EHMAGAWDD (mimics annoying teenage girls who think they are the shiz, but really aren't), don't you just LOVE this? It's my favorite costume from the entire movie :) Died when I saw it, then, somehow, came back to life, obviously...


Alice, totally rocking this loose, fairy-like maxi dress that is just PERFECT for wondering through forests and weird jungle-gardens. *insert sarcasm here*
Must admit though, the ties that synch the waist make me go crazy with envy and love.
Red Queen outfits (other than one on far right, which is what Alice wore when being DISGUISED as someone who supported the Red Queen. Sense the cleverness?)

First two on the left: White Queen attire. Center: Mad Hatter. Two on the far right: Not really sure, but aren't they gorgeous? Gothic ballerinas, don't you agree?

Alice, wearing her simple blue dress, unaware of the hole she will fall through. Lovin' that shade of blue, by the way.

Alice's Red Queen supporter dress, and then a random dress Alice was wearing at the tea party, I think, but it wasn't gray, it was blue, but really like the gray because it makes me think of some kind of ballerina from outer space that likes to garden.

Do you recognize this dress? I DO. Doesn't this look JUST like the gray dress above? I think yes. This. Is. Gorgeous.

  10. Amazing blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
    I'm hoping to start my own website soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
    Would you recommend starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid
