This outfit was inspired by Alice in Wonderland (the dark and twisty teenaged years), the Ring Master under the Big Top, hoar frost and hidden surprises. I pulled on this dress in the morning, and instantly felt like a dark Alice with the puffy sleeves, the full skirt. The rest of the outfit came together like magic, a red satin headband, the missish, yet funky shoes. The anatomically correct heart pendant. The steampunk feel of my charm bracelet.
When I stepped outside, saw the frost, I knew I would need to venture father afield to find the spot I was craving for my shots. A short walk later, I found my way to a small park on the river, empty of everything but snow and frost covered trees. It was easy to pretend I’d fallen into Alice’s (winter) Wonderland, seeking the White Rabbit, about to stumble across the Mad Hatter (an incarnation of whom nearly ran me over on his bike as I walked home).
“It was much pleasanter at home, when one wasn’t always growing larger and smaller, and being ordered about by mice and rabbits.”
