Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp in Alice In Wonderland) Make-Up

and here's Johnny.....
(Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter in Tim Burton's Alice In Wonderland)

when I was 12...I auditioned for the role of Alice, in Alice In Wonderland..it was a musical.
I got the part (insert...YAY!)...I made my outfit...a NEON Alice In Wonderland...3 tiered neon orange, green and pink skirt
neon shirt...neon headband, and some sort of brightly colored footwear, I'm sure....memory is a little hazy...ha ha ha
I sang, I wandered (under pink and orange stage lights)...talked to caterpillar's...
it was fun....every night, I loved it!

My favorite part about make-up, is the art and creative thinking that is involved...
this look was so fun to come up with...as an artist, this is my favorite...really "painting" and "designing" a look...


for the EYEBROWS...I first tried a gigantic pair of fake eyelashes...they looked bad....then I remembered I bought feathers for the Marie Antoinette look....so away I went to glue some feathers for eyebrows....I like the "Artsy" feel that they gave...very ethereal!


may I mention, that I really like Johnny Depp...(even when he was on 21 Jump Street...ha ha ha)



HAIR COLOR TIP: spend an extra dollar and buy the good hair color spray...mine was the store brand (Target, Wal-Mart, etc)....and it stunk, didn't really cover well....spend the extra 75 cents or so...it's worth it!

(before the ceremonial 10 face washings....to remove all feather-glue traces...)
watch and enjoy...please feel free to make a video response on youtube if you do this look! I'd love to see!
have a great day...remember "It's NEVER TOO LATE, to be who you might have been"- George Herbert (Julia Child was in her 50's when she started cooking!)
huge smiles, kandee

As a child I never really liked Alice and Wonderland, but the Mad Hatter was my favorite character and part of the whole movie. I absolutely love your tutorial...I think I just might put him at the top of my "what shall I be" list for halloween 8) Thnx Kandee!!!

Megan said...

KANDEE!!

I dont know where I should post a request so dont hate me if i posted this in the wrong area.

I noticed earlier you had a poll up for the next LOOK you should do. I was wondering if you could possibly do HARLEY QUINN from batman.

Not the old school Harley Quinn - I think the new school Harley from ARKHAM ASYLUM IS HOTT - and I want to be her for Halloween. I want to look as Legit as possible but i dont know how on earth to do it! PLEASE HELP

Below is the link for The Look Im Mentioning.

Hey Kandee.

I watched your videos just today and gosh I really love what you do! Thanks for these vids I'm also a stage performer so I find these helpful :)

More power, and God bless! :)

Josh said...

hey Kandee,

Thanks for the video tutes, you're amazing at what you do :] i'm a guy and a toootal noob when it comes to makeup, but after your Hatter vid i'm kinda leaning towards it; i've got three weeks to finish building the costume and figure out how to put things on my face! (i'm going to fail so bad, haha it'll be fun!)

Anyway, wish me luck! And thanks again :]

Josh said...

Okay so i totally ran out of time on the outfit, i got the costume but couldn't get makeup for it :/ BUT i did go by your orange hair spray idea, and i think i must've bought a similar brand to yours because it smelled SO BAD like petrol mixed with fart and bacon or something. Also there didn't seem to be much in the can, but like you i have dark hair so the colour was probably just less effective than it would've otherwise been.

Anyway the rest of the costume looked amazing if i dooo say so myself, i'll link a pic :]

Hmm i don't know if Blogspot will let me link that but yah. Anyway take care and God bless you dear! You're SO AWESOME. Don't ever doubt yourself!

Anne said...

Interesting interpretation, I love the feathers.
It's so wonderful to see real painted on (well, airbrushed, same difference!) makeup looks in a mostly CGI film.
Depp looked marvelous and fit right in without lots of prosthetics or overly complex makeup tricks. I teach a theatrical makeup class and my first rule is simple usually is better. Depp's makeup was beautiful, believable, and contextual -- what more can a makeup fan ask?

Ina- Mandarina said...

Hi Kandee! I'm Andri from Venezuela! thank you for the tutorial.. it was usefull! I went to a Halloween Party this year as the Mad Hatter... The Makeup was AMAZING!
I used 2 variations: for the face i used regular base and baby powder... it worked pretty well!!! and it came out easily
For the hair i used "pintadedos" i don't know the name in English, but is a waterbase painting that kids use in preschool...
I have used "pintadedos on my hair and/or skin for several custumes such as Wilma Flinstones, Lisa Simpson, Bellatrix Lestrage... and sooooo on
In a party I ran at my place for Carnival few years ago somebody left a GREAT hat which i used for the costume... Check out mi picture as the Mad Hatter!
