There was a HUGE ta-doo on Hollywood Boulevard last night for the dreary CGI-fest Alice Through the Looking Glass, which premieres this weekend. Every star EVER was in attendance and the whole street was tricked out to look like a Tim Burton wet dream. I couldn’t care less, frankly, BUT I did just come across this marvelous limited-edition collection of classic Alice in Wonderland-themed shoes from Irregular Choice, in partnership with Disney, that I’m kind of freaking out over. I would happily wear ALL OF THEM. Those little teapot heels are TO DIE FOR.
From The Daily Dot:
The collection will feature a mix of flats and heels showing familiar characters like Alice, the Cheshire Cat, and the Mad Hatter as well as imagery and quotes from the original 1951 film. Despite the collection’s release before Disney’s Alice Through the Looking on May 27, imagery from the live-action movies is not featured in the line.
“Disney wanted us to do the classic movie, and it is very important that you do not cross reference between the film/books etc. We had to be true to the original film only,” Dan Sullivan, Irregular Choice owner and main designer said.
Disney provided assets from the animated film for Irregular Choice to use.
“The most difficult part is that there is no leeway for error or adapting if something doesn’t look perfect. Everything has to be exactly angled and proportioned as per Disney guidelines for that character,” he said. “The best bit is that we have created shoes that totally represent Alice in Wonderland correctly to exact specification and are a homage to the characters I was inspired by as a kid.”
