It’s all aces for Alice in this mani inspired by the Disney animated movie, Alice in Wonderland. My preferred Alice is actually this super messed up version (but really, is there any other kind?) from 1985. It was a two-part musical TV special filmed entirely on a set with all your favourite film stars of the 1980s and 1940s (Scott Baio! Carol Channing! Sammy Davis Jr.! Ringo Starr!) and like all great adaptations of Alice, it was a total mindfu*k. I re-watched it the other evening, and aside from calling up some warm nostalgic feelings of anxiously awaiting its televised debut, I was reminded of how very inappropriate Alice in Wonderland is for its young audience. I really don’t know how I wasn’t irrevocably damaged by the sight of a slobbery, puffy puppet Jabberwocky chasing a shrieking little blonde girl through a lightning-streaked warren of gnarled roots and…yeah, you know what? That movie was just as scary the other night as it was when I was a kid! Damage done! I think I’ll take this version instead.
