Wonders in Wonderland

Oh dear, oh dear, don´t be late for wonderland! Follow the white rabbit and you will find a world of wonders. The golden key might bring you through the rat-hole and into the most beautiful of gardens or maybe all the way into the Duchess smoky kitchen. Have a bowl of soup but be careful with the pepper! A baby is turning into a pig and the tyrant Queen of Hearts wants you to repaint her white roses into red. Mad tea parties and lawn croquet, my ears and whiskers, how good this party is going to be!

Whether the new one inspires you…

….or the classic one…

….there is a myriad of costumes that should inspire you.

Let me know and I’ll help you out!

I had no idea that Alice in Wonderland was going to be such a phenomenon. Over the last week, I’ve seen so many AiW inspired articles, photo shoots, jewelry lines, merchandise and blog posts. Here are some of my favorites:

Urban Decay has designed a limited-edition Alice In Wonderland-inspired Book of Shadows. The book of 16 gorgeous eye shadow shades was inspired by Alice’s whimsical and colorful adventure – a “curiouser and curiouser” hike through twisted vines and skyscraping toadstools. The palette opens to a playful pop-up scene of Alice and her journey through the mushroom forest. The Alice Book of Shadows offers 16 best-selling eye shadows, as well as two travel sizes of 24/7 Eye Pencils and one Eyeshadow Primer Potion. DCP and Urban Decay worked together to develop names for the eye shadows reflective of the many topsy-turvy people and things in Underland: Underland, Alice, Oraculum, Queen, Chessur, White Rabbit, Wonderland, Curiouser, Muchness, Mushroom, Midnight Tea Party, Vorpal, Absolem, Drink Me, Eat Me, Mad Hatter, Jabberwocky. It’s available for $52 at Sephora, ULTA and Macy’s or online at sephora.com, ulta.com, macys.com, and urbandecay.com.

OPI will debut four limited-edition Nail Lacquer shades inspired by Alice in Wonderland. The fantastical shades include: “Absolutely Alice” – an absolutely amazing blue glitter; “Thanks So Muchness!” – a “much-have” red shimmer; “Off with Her Red!” – a glowering, empowering hot red; and “Mad as a Hatter” – a madly marvelous black-multi glitter. The spectacular colors are featured in a beautiful movie-themed display.  The Alice in Wonderland-inspired Nail Lacquers by OPI are available at professional salons, including Beauty Brands, Beauty First, Chatters, Dillard’s, JCPenney, Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, and Ulta for $8.50 suggested retail per Nail Lacquer.
