Alice Anniversary Spectacular

In celebration of the release of Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland” on Blu-ray/DVD and the 52 Anniversary of the opening of the Alice in Wonderland attraction at Disneyland, this post will be ALL Alice!

These images are from Disney's Alice In Wonderland Exhibition at the LA Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising on May 26, 2010. The opening night gala featured a fashion show of Alice in Wonderland inspired red carpet gown couture by FIDM grads, a special live performance by Kerli, and a "sneak peek" at Disney's Alice in Wonderland Costume Exhibition at FIDM.

The exhibition includes Colleen Atwood's original costume designs from the film, including Johnny Depp's original Mad Hatter fighter garment, several of Mia Wasikowska's Alice dresses and Helena Bonham Carter's Red Queen Dress; The "Edgier Side of Alice" inspired clothing and products by Sue Wong, Tom Binns, Avril Lavigne and FIDM grads.

Alice has one of my very fave attraction vehicles:

And although it isn’t exactly my fave attraction, it sure has wild & colorful imagery!

The Alice attraction has always been one of my favorites of the darkrides, but I do miss the older version with it's "Upside-down Room."
