The Alice Obsession Begins
For me, there has always been something about Alice in Wonderland. The book, the movies / TV series, the characters, the whimsy and topsy turviness of it all...
I think it all started with 1985 TV mini-series Alice in Wonderland, with many classic stars like Carol Channing, Lloyd Bridges, and even appearances from Ringo Starr and Sammy Davis Jr.
(P.S. if you remember this at all - we should be friends!)
I was about 3-years old during it's release probably watched it 8 trillion times during my childhood. My mom and I would sing and dance to the songs and I was always mesmerized by the story of Alice's journey.
However, this TV mini-series version was also a bit dark and creepy - particularly with the Jabberwocky scenes. Looking back, this was always an aspect of Alice in Wonderland that I was drawn to. It's interesting to think about the story, as an adult, and how much symbolism there is for the journey of life, with its twists and turns, interesting people that cross your path, and the many choices you must make.
Alice and her story continued to influence me through the years via Halloween costumes, collecting unique Alice items, and even having a loosely-based Alice theme at my wedding.
