I finally made icons based on my favorite version of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, thanks to screencaps provided by Emily. If you have read the novel but have yet to see the brilliant 1972 live-action British musical starring Fiona Fullerton, you ought to buy it (or rent it) and watch it. If you have yet to read the original novel and its sequel by Lewis Carroll, you need to do that right now.

I love that version! I have it. Great movie! And it only costs 1.00.

It's so good - true to the book, quotes turned into lyrics, great reactions, beautiful music - all so nice.

Nice to meet you. Thanks for the compliment on my icons.

The original picture in my LJ header was discovered at Getty Images. I then edited it aplenty, changing the colors, etcetera. I do not know the name of the model.

Thanks!

Yay for Alice's Adventures in Wonderland!!! My faves are 7 and 8 of the Alice set and the first Sam. :)

Thanks. I like how 7 turned out, color-wise. I almost tossed that first Sam. I've made it about seventeen times.

I'm glad you decided to keep it after so many tries because it's a rockin' Sam-con. :)

Cold Case

Full reply:

Thank you for the screencaps. :)

I just love, love, love how many times the White Rabbit has his back to Alice, and therefore he has his back to the camera also (or he and Alice, like one of the icons you picked out, as the case may be). So important to stay true to his character that he's always leaving. He's leading, but he's leading by leaving.

Thanks for saying that re: Sam icon! See the comments in this thread from Stef (somegirl_) for about that one.

Ohhh I *love* the Alice icons! I've never seen that version myself. My favorite though was the 1985 Made for TV one with all the classic actors/actresses and new stars of that time. :D

Thanks for the feedback!

If you liked the 1985 version, you'll love the 1972 version.
