...::::MAD as a HATTER:::::>>>

Alice in Wonderland is a timeless Disney classic full of adventure and...WONDER. Well luckily for us Disney has decided to recreate the magnificent feature and put the infamous director Tim Burton on the project. We are all familiar with Burton's work (Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, Batman, The Nightmare Before Christmas, James & the Giant Peach, Big Fish Sleepy Hollow, Corpse Bride, Sweeney Todd and the list goes on) which is very rich in imagination. In all of Burton's projects the artistry is so diverse and stands out and grasps the audience attention. There's never a dull moment in any of Burton's films and like many of the films he's directed Johnny Depp is along for the ride as the Mad Hatter. Also starring in the motion picture is Mia Wasikowska as Alice, Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen, Anne Hathaway as the White Queen, Stephen Fry as the Cheshire Cat, and Michael Sheen as the Rabbit. The film is expected to hit theaters March 5, 2010 and the buzz for it is already as high as the anticipation for release. Not only is the set design amazing but the costumes are ridiculous! the concept is caught so well and it has the feel of the original cartoon but also brings the present fashion trends into play. The Mad Hatter's costume is my absolute favorite because it reminds me of  Z Zegna 2010 fall collection.
