Going to the Cinema

Last night I went to see the long-awaited Alice in Wonderland. My first cinematic 3D experience, it was thoroughly enjoyable. I particularly loved the arrogant Queen with her heart shaped lipstick and the blue butterfly at the end which I really did think was fluttering right in front of me, as well as the overall dark Tim Burton slant on a childhood classic.

When I go to the cinema I like to be cosy and comfy, so this vintage cape seemed to be the perfect cover up. And my camera settings and editing give an appropriate gothic edge I think, to the pictures I took just before I headed out.

PS. Thanks for all the breakfast suggestions in yesterday's post, I can't wait to try some of them!

  3. I watched the movie on Friday and really liked it. You're right about the butterfly at the end, it was really cool how it flew towards the audience! :)

    I really like your Make up- I love the way your eyeliner looks. I need to practice on that ;)

    Have a lovely Sunday evening.

  5. I love your cape Paula!! It's beautiful. I just bought a kinda of mustardy but bright yellow cape. Does that even make sense?? ha ha... anyway... I have no idea when I'm going to wear this cape because it's already getting warm in Maui! :)

    Alice in Wonderland was grrrrreat!! Alice's dresses were amazing and Queen of Hearts quite entertaining.. and Mad Hatter, *sigh* Johnny Depp is genuis and of course dreamy!! :)

    I hope you're having a beautiful Sunday.!!

    xx Love & Aloha

  8. You look so gorgeous in that second picture! I like modern 3D, but some years ago I had the opportunity of watching a lot of 50s movies in 3D: Dial M for Murder, House Of Wax, Creature from the Black Lagoon and some others - and that was definitely uber fun!!

  16. I have yet to watch the film but have you watched Alice from the SyFy channel? Amazing also!

    I love your Cartier Tank watch- I received one for an engagement gift with the Cartier book and I always feel so frumpy when I wear it. I save it for special occasions, even if it's meant to last forever.

  23. That's a great outfit for the movies, there's nothing worst than feeling cold when you cannot go somewhere and grab a coat or turn the heating up. :)

    I'm also loving the nail polish; just seen, but what a lovely colour. Would you mind sharing the info?

  36. i'm going to wait till the dvd comes out... sadly, going out to the movies requires patience that i just lack (ie. listening to other people whisper during the movie, seat kicking, etc).

    you look beautiful, Paula and for the thousandth time: i love your hair.
