Alice is the new Black


A tale of dark Halloweenish Burtonesque Haute Couture is to be published by Harpers Bazaar in anticipation of the Tim Burton Retrospective showing at New York’s MoMa from 22 November 20o9 thru 26 April 2010. I suppose everybody is deliciously looking forward to Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland movie to be released world-wide on 5 March 2010 (mark your calendars!). Tim Walker’s photographs are eerie enchanting, the perfect motives for my GPP crusade post – Come over to the dark side! Made a dark journal spread – left is “The new Black Alice” and “Waiting for Tim Burton“. The journaling on the right side was done with a purple paint pen and doesn’t show on the scan. Thanks Michelle for yet another cool challenge. Right up my alley! 

Die Geschichte von düsterer halloweenischer Burtonesque Haute Couture wird demnächst im Harpers Bazaar in freudiger Erwartung von Tim Burton Retrospective veröffentlicht (hoffentlich auch in Deutschland!!), die in New York’s MoMa vom 22. November 20o9 bis 26. April 2010 läuft. Ich vermute, jeder freut sich auf  Tim Burton’s Alice im Wonderland-Film , der weltweit am 5. March 2010 anlaufen wird (im Kalender vormerken!). Tim Walker’s Photographien sind schaurig verzaubernd, ideal für meinen GPP crusade Beitrag – Komm rüber auf die düstere Seite! Hab eine Doppelseite in meinem Journal gemacht. Links ist “The new Black Alice” und rechts “Warten auf Tim Burton“. Mein Text auf der rechten Seite hab ich mit einem lila Acrylschreiber geschrieben, aber sieht man nicht auf dem Scan. Danke Michelle für eine weitere cool Herausforderung. So ganz mein Dingcover-hp-oct2009!  

EDIT: The fabulous Burton article was published in the US Harper’s Bazaar  October 2009 issue. The issue I found here in Luxembourg has Janet Jackson on the cover. *** Der tolle Burton-Artikel wurde in der US-Ausgabe von Harper’s Bazaar Oktober 2009 veröffentlicht. Die Ausgabe, die ich in Luxemburg fand hatte Janet Jackson auf dem Cover.

Here are sneak peaks from the article. Hier ein paar Fotos aus dem Artikel.

And to top it all off, Disney started a huge and oh so clever fashion and jewelry marketing campaign entitled Alice is the new black! Very clever I must say, me likes! 
Um dem noch eins drauf zu setzen hat Disney eine Riesen Mode- und Schmuck-Marketingkampagne gestartet, die sie Alice ist das neue Schwarz nennen. Sehr clever, gefällt mir!


There is a place like no place on earth. A land full of wonder, mystery and danger. Some say to survive it you need to be as mad as a hatter, which luckily he is. So don’t be terribly late, you naughty! It’s not impossible, only if you believe it is!
