Yes, More “Alice in Wonderland” Jewels

“Alice in Wonderland” has already spawned a nail polish line and jewelry designed by Tom Binns and Stella McCartney, but now the movie has inspired Swarovski-encrusted items as well. Disney worked with the crystal brand to create four different pieces — two necklaces and two rings — which incorporate the Queen of Heart’s symbol and the Cheshire Cat. Personally, if I were going to buy Swarovski, this wouldn’t be my chosen purchase. But for hardcore fans of the film, these seem like ideal collectibles. Still to come are two more items: a stopwatch and the rose gold sparrow necklace worn by Alice. [Racked] Keep reading »

Nicholas Kirkwood Designs Shoes Fit For A Mad Hatter

We’ve written about shoe designer Nicholas Kirkwood‘s zany creations before, but this time he takes things to a whole new level. Kirkwood, along with several other designers, was asked to a concoct a pair of “Alice in Wonderland”-themed heels for display in the windows of the Printemps store in Paris. The image you see up top is the sketch Kirkwood made of the shoes, inspired by his favorite character, the white rabbit. “I think my favorite Alice character is the March Hare,” the designer explained. The bottom photo is a shot of the completed footwear, outfitted with real teacups and a pocket watch, natch. They’re perfect for the girl who isn’t afraid to wear literary allusions on her feet.

Claw Your Way Down The Rabbit Hole

Every good movie deserves a proper nail polish collaboration, right? OPI fell down the rabbit hole and found inspiration in Tim Burton’s delicious-looking new film “Alice in Wonderland.” The product of their fantastical dreams turned into four different shades: Absolutely Alice, Mad as a Hatter, Off With Her Red! and Thanks So Muchness. These looks are certainly not for anyone afraid of color or glitter, since each is just as extravagant and eye-catching as the next. From the deep red for the Red Queen to the glittery black for the Mad Hatter, each pairs with its character to crazy perfection, which makes sense, as those on-screen personalities really do need outlandish colors to compete. The polishes, available at salons nationwide in January, will retail for $8.50 each or $20 for the set. [All Lacquered Up] Keep reading »

Photographer Elena Kalis Takes Lewis Carroll’s Classic Story Underwater

Will recreating classic fairy tales and children’s stories in photo shoots ever get old? Probably not. Photographer Elena Kalis took this amazing series of underwater photos in which her 10-year-old daughter plays out scenes from Alice in Wonderland in the clear, blue ocean surrounding the Bahamas, where they live. We’d like to take a trip down this saltwater-filled rabbit hole. [Elena Kalis via NOTCOT] Keep reading »

Get Excited, Tim Burton Is Coming To the Museum Of Modern Art

If you haven’t been to a museum in a while, we have one very good reason why, come fall, you should. From November to April 2010, never-before-seen art by Tim Burton will be on display at New York’s Museum of Modern Art. The exhibit will feature 700 works, including 14 films, as well as puppets, doodles, costumes, cartoons, childhood drawings, and sculptures from the ultimate pop-culture surrealist. We expect it’ll be surreal, surprising, and awesome. Be there or be watching the trailer for his version of “Alice in Wonderland.” [NY Times] Keep reading »

“Alice In Wonderland” Looks Like The Best Movie Ever

The trailer for Tim Burton’s “Alice In Wonderland” has finally come down the rabbit hole and it looks a-maaaazing. Johnny Depp, in particular, looks deliciously wicked, definitely channeling the same dark kookiness of his version of Willy Wonka. Only this time, we hope his brilliance is fully appreciated. With Wonka, he could not escape comparisons to Gene Wilder, but his Mad Hatter can only be held up against a cartoon — we’re sure he’ll hold his own. Keep reading »

Tim Burton’s “Alice In Wonderland” Is Going To be Amazing

Tim Burton is one of my favorite directors. I know “The Nightmare Before Christmas” by heart and left the theater with goosebumps after seeing his twisted remake of “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.” Not to mention that I admire his constantly casting Johnny Depp! Which is why I could not contain my excitement upon seeing the new promotional photos for Burton’s upcoming rendition of “Alice in Wonderland.” It’s just like Burton to take a children’s fairytale and warp it, and by the looks of these pictures, we’re in for one dark fall down the rabbit hole. In this creepily surrealist version, Alice lands back in Wonderland 10 years after her first visit, but she has absolutely no recollection of being there the first time around. Oh, and did I mention that this movie will be shown in 3-D and that you can explore the CGI scenery thanks to this cool USA Today gadget?

Sadly, the movie won’t be out until March 5 of 2010. So to tide you over, here are our favorite of the publicity images. Keep reading »
