Jessica Bumpus (Vogue.com), Courtney Blackman (FBC) and me all wearing our 3D glasses at Alice in Wonderland. I’ve been looking forward to this film for ages!

I really just wanted to see the makeup – which was amazing. Oscar winning makeup artist Valli O’Reilly was the head makeup artist for the flim. (She’s also Canadian.) Valli did a double major in art history and theatre and studied sculpture. She planned to be an artist and started out doing makeup for friends for New York TV commercials and fashion to earn extra money.

The makeup for Helena Bonham Carter took about two and half hours each day to transform her into the bulbous headed Red Queen. It’s important for the makeup to be more flawless than normal as they worked in High-Def and 3-D.

Makeup Forever eyeshadow in blue was used on the ‘eyes’ but when they first did the makeup tests O’Reilly used Yves Saint Laurent. O’Reilly first hand painted the lips and then created a stencil to be used to recreate the look for every day.

The Mad Hatter’s look is my favourite. Johnny Depp’s personal makeup artist, Patty York did his makeup.

The makeup notes indicate that the period that inspired the Mad Hatter’s wardrobe was also a period where a lot of people had different chemical poisoning (which also would have made them a bit disturbed), and that The Mad Hatter in this interpretation has mercury poisoning, so this influenced his whole look. One eye is lavenders and purples, and on the other is turquoise, light and dark blue with green. I like the white eyeliner with white eyelashes and the lower pink ones. It will be interesting to see how the makeup influences the spring and summer trends. I imagine we’ll be seeing more blue eye shadow!

Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland” – Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter

Posted by Rebekah Roy on January 3rd, 2009

Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter Tim Burton Alice in Wonderland Tim Burtons Alice in Wonderland   Johnny Depp as the Mad HatterI’m already looking forward to 2010 just to see the costumes in Tim Burton’s "Alice in Wonderland," with Johnny Depp as The Mad Hatter and Helena Bonham Carter as The Red Queen – you just know it’s going to be unreal. The Red Queen’s head is huge – about 3x the size of her body! I imagine the caterpillar will be an extraordinary CGI character!

This picture is apparently an early makeup/costume test (source)

Alice Disney remix by Nick Bertke aka Pogo

Posted by Rebekah Roy on May 26th, 2008

Love this! It’s a remix by 19 year old Nick Bertke (a.k.a Pogo, Pogotron). The track is almost entirely made up of sounds sampled from Disney’s 1951 animated classic, Alice in Wonderland and the track is available free to download on his Last FM page!

Remixing is a lot like fashion styling – looking at things from the past and seeing them in a new way!
