Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland

This film was truly amazing. I take my hat off to the actors for their fantastic job, seeing as most of the film was green screened and the actors were working with nothing they did an amazing job of making you believe the world was real. In the film Alice revisits wonderland as a teenager and finds out how wonderland has changed alot since her last visit as a child. The Red Queen has taken over wonderland leaving it a very dark place so Alice must help them to get the White Queen back on her throne. I did decide to see this film in 3D and it was worth seeing it in 3D, everything stood out alot more. Watching the film I was just amazed by the costumes and the sets and the wonderful acting. Johnny Depp did a wonderful job playing the Mad Hatter watching this man slowly going mad and changing within his own head. Although straight away you can tell that this is a Tim Burton film because of the usual soundtrack and the obvious fact that Johnny Depp and his wife is in the film (like many of his others) it's weird watching the film knowing that it is also by Disney but seeing as its wonderland after distruction I think Tim Burton's dark look to his films fits well.

Harlequin Mini Project

Escape The Fate - It's just me

"Just a little more, come on and satisfy me,
Just a little more, come on and terrify me,
Just a little more and I'll be done with it,
Take my life and then I'll feel okay."

These were the images that got me inspired.

This is just one of the costumes that I have been doing for the photoshoot. I didn't end up using the white belt in the end, I originally made it to make this outfit look different from the other outfit that was made.

This was an idea that I got from an Escape the Fate song. (above) First I did some quick sketches of Harlequin's and then after that my ideas started flowing thinking about where you might possibly find a harlequin and this image of a harlequin hanging upside on the monkey bars like a trapeze artist came into my head and couldn't get it out of my head. I then decided to look at different images of harlequins online but I got these weird images up of these gruesome babies but I kept looking. After looking at all the different costumes and stereotypes for harlequins I then started thinking up ideas for a modern day harlequin costume. Alot of the costumes I recyled from things I already had but other things I had to make: The tights were a pair of plain white tights that I painted on using fabric paint to create the pattern. The cuff I sewed by hand. The dress I painted white diamonds on the side to go with the harlequin theme and the white top was a top I already had that I cut sorter. I then decided on what the makeup was going to be like. I had decided that became Jade had a very symetrical face that I would break that by giving her one bold eye like the makeup from "Clockwork Orange". In contrast I gave my eyes quite symettrical makeup. I enjoyed doing this little idea I had and bringing it to life but I wish I could have used a proper model instead of myself so I could take all the photographs rather than just directing them. I also would have like to do alot more to the costumes so straight away when you look at the photographs you think harlequin.

Photoshoot for Dion (DONT LOOK MATT)

Despite leaving the course I'm still set on using my blog as a way of getting work out because it's easier to show people your work. This is just a photoshoot I've done for a mate of mine, he goes UCA Maidstone and his project was to show what people do over xmas and rather than show everyone sitting at a table having fun he decided to show the scenarios that get covered up cause of xmas. His other shoots consisited of a man drinking too much and being sick, and also someone homeless on the street. Mine was just to show the high suicide rate over xmas. A couple of friends of mine who have seen these pictures don't really like them just for the fact they don't like seeing me dead.

The Poltergeist

Right the Poltergeist has completely put a stop to me ever wanting kids because they are weird and creepy. However as a film it was interesting to watch but even though I have never see it personally I knew what was happening because it's been ripped so much.

Rip number 1 and probably the biggest rip was from family guy. This whole episode was based around this movie for instance at the end when you think it's all over because they have carol-anne back well from watching this I was wondering if the house collapses in on itself or not. However it has made it abit more comical.

Rip number 2 was from South Park but unfortunately I couldnt find a clip of this women on youtube but found a still instead. I do apologise to everyone for how much I started giggling when that women came on to help the family out because in family guy she does the same thing and even has the strange voice however when I 1st saw this episode I just thought they gave her a weird voice for comical effect so when she actually spoke like that in the film I couldnt help myself sorry.

Rip number 3 was from Scary Movie 2. At the part when the women is being pushed up against all the different walls in poltergeist scary movie did the same scene but made it look as if the women and ghost were making love. So really in theory this movie was kind of ruined for me because I found myself laughing at it rather then taking it seriously.

Evian Babies

Does anyone else find this advert either very cute or extremely creepy? I thought I'd post this because I think it has an uncanny feel to it I don't know what your thoughts are?
