I thought the costumes for Alice in Wonderland were the saving grace for that movie. They were so fantastical and I pretty much wanted every outfit Alice sported in the movie. Especially that blue one in the picture above and the blue one she wears when she first arrives in Wonderland. Awhile ago I was looking at the Oscar award nominees and winners for costume designer over the last few years and Colleen always seems to be in the category. She's such a talented costume designer!

I love her work for Tim Burton. I just saw Dark Shadows and fell in love with Bella Heathcote´s character´s dresses

Here's a iPhone shot of her Edward Scissorhands outfit, taken at last years LACMA exhibit on Tim Burton, against the security teams wishes. Made of leather, rubber, PVC and something else I've never heard of. To see it upclose is something quite remarkable: all these small, minor details that you really don't even see on film. The boots looked like they were built into the pants, which were built onto the top, to resemble 1 single outfit. I can't even begin to describe how they made the hand w/ the attached blades. I remember looking at it for a good 10 or 15 minutes, and still not being able to figure out how exactly they got Johnny Depp dressed in it. I didn't notice any secret zippers (if there were, they were incredibly well-hidden), so I imagine they had to disassemble, then reassemble, the pieces onto Johnny directly. (I can be totally wrong, though) It's definitely one of those pieces that make you stop and think, "How the hell did they make that?"

I didn't know she did the costumes for that movie. Funny, because I thought McQueen would be a perfect fit for that movie.
