Seriously, i've thought bout mayb hosting a lil halloween dinner or somethg around last week... ahahahhaha... and a sudden urge to get a costume n go trick-or-treating.. lol ~ but don't think it's happening.. but still...... I wanna do something on that day. something significant?

This is Alice... Shrunken version. Mia Wasikowska.. Hmm.. long name. Quite pretty though. =)
The Mad Hatter!!!!! YES YES YES!!! johnny depp guys!!! HE'S THE RIGHT PERSON TO GET THE ROLE!!!! =DDD
The Red Queen! O gosh wow wow wow ~ Look at her makeup and the HEAD!!! Helena Bonham Carter rocks the look ~ =D
And look who's the White Queen? One of my favourite actresses, Anne Hathaway (from Princess Diaries and The Devil Wears Prada)!! a bit eerie.. But beautiful ~ as always. hahahs.
Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum.. Oooh.. The size of them! ahahhaha.. By Matt Lucas.
I remember reading this in my books when i was like 5 or something ~ When Alice went to the Rose Garden to ask directions or something.. Look at the expressions on the faces here!! Awesome.. and then the final one ~
This is the synopsis i found on the web:
Tim Burton (director of Edward Scissorhands, Beetlejuice) attempts to work his gothic magic over one of the best loved stories of all time... Lewis Carroll's 'Alice In Wonderland' and 'Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There', which first told the story of a young girl, who after following a rabbit down a hole, is transported to a strange world. Whilst the disney version of the tale relied on sweetness and light to delight the audience, Burton fans can be sure to look out for the same cartoon traits as earlier masterpiece 'The Nightmare Before Christmas'. The traditional tale has been freshened with a blast of girl power, courtesy of writer Linda Woolverton (Beauty and the Beast).
Alice, 17, attends a party at a Victorian estate only to find she is about to be proposed to in front of hundreds of snooty society types. Off she runs, following a white rabbit into a hole and ending up in Wonderland, a place she visited 10 years before yet doesn't remember. Among those who welcome her back is the Mad Hatter, a part tailor-made for Johnny Depp as he collaborates with Burton for the seventh time. "This character is off his rocker," Zanuck says. Aussie actress Mia Wasikowska, 19, best known for HBO's In Treatment, has the coveted title role. "There is something real, honest and sincere about her," Zanuck says. "She's not a typical Hollywood starlet." There is the usual Burton-esque ghoulishness (Helena Bonham Carter's Red Queen, whose favorite retort is "Off with their heads," has a moat filled with bobbing noggins), but Zanuck assures most kids can handle it. "The book itself is pretty dark," he notes. "This is for little people and people who read it when they were little 50 years ago."
And the trailer. OMG!!! even the sound effects are attractive to me. I love, love, love Alice in Wonderland and this version looks great to me. The art!!! The characters!!! Although they are computer generated, but whatever. It's still so awesome, so cool ~
hahahah.. favourite quote ther: "Alice.. you're terribly late you know.. naughty!" just gotta love johnny depp. And the tagline: YOU'VE GOT A VERY IMPORTANT DATE. yes yes yes sure i do. anyone wanna go watch with me nex year march somethg? hahahah..
Just beautiful. The colours are so vividly beautiful, and Tim Burton gets it right just like the illustrations in the book. It's not just a children's fairytale anymore, and has an edge to it. I can't wait to watch this movie.. though it's NEXT YEAR!!! i love you, tim burton. You're a genius!
