Friday fun: go ask Alice

"'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
did gyre and gimbel in the wabe;
all mimsy were the borogroves
and the momeraths outgrabe."
Oh boy am I excited for the new Alice in Wonderland movie. But you know what I'm even more excited about? The awesome cosmetic tie-ins. Urban Decay released this beauty last week.
To my knowledge, this is the first pop-up palette ever. I thought it was extremely clever to use this technique for an Alice in Wonderland-themed palette - what better way to celebrate a children's book (well, I think Alice in Wonderland is meant for all ages) than with whimsical pop-up illustrations?
Excuse my hand, the palette didn't seem to want to stay open!
Here's little Alice, looking up at the caterpillar:
Cute "drink me" bottle:
And my favorite detail on this palette: the caterpillar. His face seems to convey a hint of grouchiness and superiority, which is exactly how he is in the book and animated Disney movie.
Whoooo are yoooou?
While the idea of actually using the palette horrifies the Curator, I understand that most of you are normal and are going to be using it for its intended purpose. So here are the colors in natural light. I love the little white rabbits sprinkled throughout.
And with flash:
I think we're off to an excellent start with the Alice madness. More Wonderland-based goodies to come. ;)
