Okay. So I may not be much of a goth (um, just look at me), but I've always harbored a love for the gorgeously dark, Victorian-inspired worlds created by director Tim Burton. Movies like Edward Scissorhands (and its haunting, sweeping score by Danny Elfman), The Nightmare Before Christmas, Corpse Bride (I so wanted to be her for Halloween), even the merry slasher Sweeney Todd, manage to keep me equally entertained and mesmerized. So when I heard rumors that Burton would reimagine the classic fairytale (and often Gothicized) Alice and Wonderland, I knew to expect an entirely new, twisted, magical vision that only the wonderfully wacky team of Burton, his muse Helena Bonham Carter, and his go-to goth Johnny Depp could muster.

Pretty intense makeovers, right? But I've saved the best for last:
