how's this for muchness?

For Halloween this year, we went with the Alice in Wonderland theme - Tim Burton style - obviously.


For those who have yet to see it (or for those of you who never will), here's what the real characters look like...


Ruby was dying to be The White Queen, and requested that I go as her sister, The Red Queen. John, we knew right away, would have to be the Mad Hatter; and we all thought it would be funny to have Asher and Dix dress as the two Tweedles - Dee and Dum (most would agree, they were a hysterical little doublet). The ironic thing about our whole ensemble, is that we didn't even have an Alice. I then had an idea to order a little Alice figurine and secure it to John's, er excuse me, the Hatter's hat...rather fitting, we thought since she rides a great deal on his hat in the movie. Just trying to stay true to the storyline...I mean, what's Wonderland without the Alice?

My jaw just it hit the floor! Your costumes are amazing.
It literally looks like the costume, hair, and make up team from the actual movie dressed your family.
It's that spot on!

Fabulous job!

You guys look so good! I can't believe your make up!!! It's amazing, did you do yours and John's yourself? That is incredible.

Whoah! You guys look awesome! I can't believe you pulled that off. Those are like the best costumes I have ever seen.
How did you do John's space tooth? A lil' black out?
The only problem with this is that you have set the bar extremely high. You will have to live up to it next year:)
Awesome job dudes.
Dots and I went with the annual last second Zombie family...sad.
