The final thing we must recognize is the costumes, designed by another of Tim Burton’s long time collaborators, Oscar winning costume designer Colleen Atwood. All of the dresses in this movie are beautiful, but the final dress that Christina Ricci wears is an iconic moment in Tim Burton’s films. West uses Burton’s signature black and white stripes and molds them through a basque, bustle, ruffled edges and full skirt. In terms of goth-dom, it’s like the Shroud of Turin.
Obsessed with this.

First Light - Reminiscent of Beasts of Southern Wild, this short film shows the child’s eye being the most truthful. The red light glowing off faces makes it surreal, but the unforced reactions and environment make it feel realistic. It’s also in the vein of Lars von Trier’s Melancholia, the supernatural as a metaphor for the internal struggle.
