This is what we like to call "under the sea crazy." Not only did Ursula steal Ariel’s voice and then use it against her, she also turned the merpeople into creepy little creations. {Photo Credit: Walt Disney Pictures}

It’s difficult to begin describing the extreme levels of nutso that Divine represents. Let’s just put it this way: She was named “The Filthiest Person Alive,” and she is willing to kill anyone who threatens that title. {Photo Credit: Saliva Films}

When 'Bewitched' first premiered on in 1974, TV audiences watched as Endora tormented her son-in-law, Darrin, with various spells and hexes. But it wasn’t until 1966 when the show switched from black-and-white to a full Technicolor experience that audiences realized why Endora was so kooky — she was wearing blue eye shadow. {Photo Credit: ABC}

Joan Cusack can play virtually any role, but once you slap on some two-toned blue and orange eyes shadow and douse her hair in Aquanet, she’s the perfect crazy — and slightly slutty — best friend. {Photo Credit: 20th Century Fox}

Helena Bonham Carter's Queen is absolutely terrifying when she screams her favorite phrase, “Off with their heads!” But the light blue eye shadow that takes up half her face is especially horrifying. {Photo Credit: Walt Disney Pictures}

Did you see the Lifetime movie 'Liz and Dick?' That train wreck was based off this woman, so you better believe there is some kind of crazy behind those painted blue eyes. {Photo Credit: 20th Century Fox}

Jessica falls under the category of “hot girl crazy.” Jessica's the epitome of a bombshell, and that heavy blue eye shadow must have clouded her vision. Why else would a perfect ten be completely in love with an obnoxious rabbit? {Photo Credit: Touchstone Pictures}

Between gluing Drew’s hand to a porno magazine, filling his desk with garbage, and shipping him off to China while he was unconscious, Mimi is the perfect example that the heavier the makeup, means the higher the crazy. {Photo Credit: ABC}

This girl was crazy in love with Flavor Flav, regularly attacked some girl named “Pumpkin,” and has award herself with the title “HBIC” (Head Bitch In Charge). She’s the ultimate kind of wack job because she’s the only one in our list who’s not a fictional character or cartoon. Congrats girl, and keep rocking that blue eye shadow. {Photo Credit: VH1}
