Alice in wonderland.

Alice in wonderland.

After seeing Tim Burtons Alice in wonderland film, I have decided the best thing about the film is the way it has inspired and touched so many with its wonderful achievable make up and costumes.

About 2 weeks ago the British Costume association held its annual trade show up in stoneleigh, the costumes that where on show their where beautiful, from simple but detailed alice dresses to wonderful hatter costumes, and lots of affordable hatter hats with hair!
we will be ordering some of these and be adding them to our hire range soon.
But the make up in the film was amazing and so inspiring , made you want to rush home and get out your make up brushes. 
I came home and became one of the queens nobles. 

Joanna Peters just went as mad as a hatter and within a few days she created so many wonderful charters including

The knave of heats ( great use of Rigid  collodion)

A Rose 

A knob head

A cheshire cat ( glow in the dark mehron fx would be great for this make up)

If you have been inspired by this film I would love to see what you have created.

  1. sensational looks! Really enjoyed Tim Burton's version, how much more macabre and detailed all the costumes and characters were :D xx
