I don't care if you love, hate, or are truly terrified of Alice in Wonderland. You should go see it immediately. I loved the movie (was never a big fan of the story before), but what you really need to see are the costumes! I took poor Matt with me and I'm sure he left with bruises on his arm because I grabbed it so many times. "Look at that dress!" Alice's wardrobe absolutely geeked me out. I can't say enough how stunning I found the majority of her costumes. I tried in vain to scope out my favorites online, though I did find this one:
It's so much more stunning and complicated on the screen. I found these two photos as well:
... but they're kid stuff compared to what you'll find in the movie.
In the interest of not spoiling the movie, I won't even describe them ("When Alice is in *** ***** ***, she wears this dress covered in ****** because of the ***** **** theme."). But go see it! I haven't felt that giddy about clothing in a long time. The things I would do to own one of those dresses are truly deplorable. I could easily see any of her more elaborate costumes going down a runway and flying off racks. If I had the ocassion and means, you'd best believe I'd have my favorite one(s) recreated and hit the red carpet. No shame.
