Alice meets Johnny

When I was young, I never really liked Alice in Wonderland,
I found it a bit well, not to my liking and a bit weird.
But as I grew older (say like twentyeeesh hehe)
I suddenly had this interest over Alice in Wonderland.
I scourged old dvd collections to search for the said cartoon
and actually sat down and watched it with different eyes.
I loved it so much that I've got charmed pieces
with the Wonderland theme in mind.
The more vintage it is, the better!

I do not know how or what changed
but the entire thing is now no longer weird to me.
Is it Alice trying to escape her boring life?
To enter an alternate reality where everyone can be who they are?
Is it the Queen of Hearts whose temper matches mine?
What of the mad-hatter and friends who has all the time in the world?
Or the rabbit who always rushes against time?

As I was making yet another set of Alice accessories,
I stopped and searched online for some images that I hoped
would serve as an inspiration for my necklace,
and this is what I've found!

Apparently, Tim Burton is doing a re-make of the movie!
Of course it wouldn't be a Burton film if Johnny Depp himself isn't playing a part in his movie.
Alas, Johnny Depp shall thus be known as the Mad Hatter himself.
Anne Hathaway as Alice and of course
and Helena Bonham Carter as The Queen of Hearts.
I was searching for inspiration and look where it led me!
These images alone are enough to make my imagination run for hours,
so pardon me as I finish this blog as I now shall escape my reality.

Same sentiments here!
I never really liked it too when I was a kid.
Well, for some reason, I like it now that I'm older :)
Hopefully the Tim Burton remake would be another favorite of mine along with Edward Scissorhands, Nightmare Before Christmas and Corpse Bride :)
