A Treat from Wonderland

with the biggest of love seasons....chasing us down til' the weekend...
I thought, "what better time to splash on some "Eau De Alice In Wonderland"....than now....I think the real movie (Tim Burton style), comes out March 5th!

So let's go back...back in time...when I was cranking out costume videos like the Queen of hearts yelled "off with their heads!".....

these were some of my favorite looks to do....I hope you enjoy!

SIDENOTE: I played Alice, yes I broke the mold as the brunette-Alice, In Wonderland. I remember I even got to create the outfit...a 3-tiered skirt, each layer was a diff NEON color....with hi-top shoes, a neon green shirt, that I think I be-dazzled with either jewels or puffy paint! (Not nearly as fun as my friend Adam, who decorated his ride-able lawn mower with Puffy Paint...ha ha ha) I thinkI had a matching headband with crazy curly ribbons in matching NEON fashion! Yay early 90's! ha ha ha
(my favorite time to be on the teacups- across from the Alice in Wonderland ride, afternoon sunlights...glowing up the sky, and the candy-colored lamps above, begin to glow their sugary colors! Spin baby spin!)
The Alice In Wonderland ride at Disneyland is still one of my favy-favs! Just the wiggly ride out onto the flower leaves, on a lavender caterpillar....with giant flowers.....come on! And it's right across from the teacups....another of my favorite rides! (And Hi to Ashley Lujan!!! That's where we got to meet!xoxo)(me twirling into delerium on the teacups at Disneyland)

So here we go....may you have a delightful day....and if it feels overwhelming....upside down, chaotic, sad, maddening....may you think of the Wonderland.....there is wonder all around us....we just need to put on our "wonder-eyes" to see it!!!

Huge love my precious kandee-lights!!! teacupss full of joy, kandee

and here we goooooooooo!

Kandee you are so inspiring- with everything going on in your life you still manage to find the silver lining in the world and focus on that. You inspire people daily, between your make-up and your uplifting outlook on life I find it hard to believe how some people could still be so mean hearted toward you.
You are an amazing person Kandee don't let anyone get you down you are only as strong as you want to be and you are a true testimony to that.

Thank you for everything Kandee I honestly hope everything looks up for you and you are your family get through this.

Much love,
Ginny

Oh, such a niece piece of story from your mind.. I can cry right now, how beautiful it is. Love you, Kandee.

My DIAMOND girl you are :)

And by the way, the photo where you have written - (me twirling into delerium on the teacups at Disneyland). To me, it's the most beautiful photo of yours. It's so, so.. I can't even tell.. so true, magic, honest, full of such natural joy and beautifully childish.. cause kid's joy is the most honest thing in this world and you look like that.. Made my evening, cutie :)****

Yours Giedre. (gianthug)

i love how "copy" the looks, but make them even better with your own little spin on them!
i wish i loved the tea cup ride. i am plagued with the worst ever motion sickness and have not rode them since i was 10 years old and got so sick it almost killed the entire disneyland experience. :(
thanks for posting such great stuff.

laura la` rose said...

I really loved these two looks you did when portraying Mad Hatter and the Queen of Hearts!
Oh and I wish I were able to go to Disneyland but unfortunately we don't have this magical place in Romania...It seems to be perfect and amazing!
Anyway...thank you again Kandee for making my day great through your wonderful words! I hope you have a marvellous day too and remember to stay strong as you always do!

You were also asking for requests. I would love to see your favourite look of all time! I done your look that you done on Saori for a party thong I went to recently and it was a big hit!!

andrukacelmare said...

that picture where you laugh to your ears , it's so you, it almost spills out your nature of enjoying life. For most of the people that is so hard to do.. so I think that's why you have sooo many admirers. And so many who fell in love with what you represent!! you're truly amazin'

samajama27 said...

I absolutely love that picture of you on the ride. You just look so happy. Great job on the looks also.

Desiree said...

Anyway your costume looks are so freakin rad, I can't wait for Halloween because I'm totally using your tips ;) Thanks for all of your creativity, you're the BEST! :)

saline-queen said...

I love the teacups!!!! lol I like to make people sick on them! LOL! I am so mean, haha! And the spinning hearts are fun, too!

How are you feeling with your back pain? Did they find out what was wrong?

Praying for you always!

Hey Kandee!

love the look! and the integration of the look and your encouraging pick me ups that I always look forward too.
Also, this is just a side note. But Brad Guice is a famous Christian photographer who is speaking at my school (Philadelphia Biblical University) this week. He said he hires his own make up artists and prefers to hire Christians. SO, I was thinking, if its okay with you, I'll pass your name and email along to him one day this week. That might cool!?!

Jesie said...

Can't wait to check the vids!!! Thanks Kandee. Hope you have a great week :)

Lizzard said...

I love Disneyland. I want to go back so much!

LilSisOfaMarine said...

I loved both of those videos when you first posted them and I love them now! So awesome. I heard about that movie before they really announced it online...just a picture was shown and it was kind of not a big deal, no big story or anything and about a month later they wrote a story on it and yada yada, now it's huge and I still can't wait to see it. But I loved it from the first day there were pictures leaked on the internet! :) Whoop whoop, it's always been one of my favoite childhood movies! Hoep you had a lovely day Kandee! *hugs*

Hy, lovely photos! You look so happy in them, hope you're always this happy. Your post made me smile, as usual!

Can't wait for a new tutorial!

Have you ever thought of a "Imaginarium of doctor Parnassus" inspired look? I'm sure you'd love that movie if you haven't seen it yet!:D

Have a super fun day, Kandee!

kiss!

Carling Nugent said...

Hey Kandee! You're the best!
Just watched your new Rihana vid, and thought it was awesome! I don't have much make-up, but I do have turquoise eye liner! Perfect!!!

One quick note though. I don't wanna be bossy or rude, but can you use the '...' a little less in your blog? Without proper punctuation it makes it kinda hard to read. That is all. Sorry to complain :(

Lots of love!
-Carling

Funny you mention thinking about Wonderland when your thoughts might not be the happiest. Yesterday I daydreamed about whimisical places, ruby slippers and emerald cities. Tea parties with colorful petit fours.

I hope your day is filled with whimsy and magic and all things fanciful.

Belkycita said...

I am in LOVE with the tip on how to cover your eyebrows. YEARS ago I learned to do it with putty and it was a messy hard job.
Now I live in a place where I don't even know where to find food coloring!!!! but I have seen glue sticks so THIS is awesome!!!!
Thank you. <3
