Wondering about Alice

Ha! I love coincidences.
1) I'm dead scared of the Disney version of Alice in Wonderland in cartoon, but I love almost everything else about it
2) I shot a shoot of my friend Mackenzie last June as Alice, along with other girls as other fantasy characters. I only remembered this one about three seconds ago too! So fun to suddenly remember...
3) My favorite photo shoot of ALL time happens to be involving a parody of Alice in Wonderland by my FAVORITE photography Annie Leibovitz.
4) I'm in love with blue, flowy dresses. The movie costumes are stunning! I had no idea how much fun it would be to watch this movie for artistic reasons, but it really was enjoyable for more than just the plot. I couldn't get good pictures of the costumes that were good sizes, but please just go see the movie and enjoy them yourself! They're pretty much modified versions of the ones used by Annie L, but in motion!

Here's June 2009:

This gorgeous B&W was almost by accident. Clearer image than even digital it seems! I love artistic accidents :)

Should I go down the rabbit hole?!

Why yes! It might be fun!

I LOVE this one, but the holga version (ahum, unscanned) looks much better. The holga even caught her bracelet...look closely.

I did a series of tea party shots, but none really keep me interested. It's been a while since this shoot and I know how I could have made it better...

FAVORITE SHOOT EVER! (click to get the full picture...)

If you know me remotely, you know I love the one in B&W with the flowy-iest dress and the attractive photographer the most :)

This costume shows more ruffles than most, with very defined creases. Obviously, it's catering to the 1920s.

Although, not my favorite, this picture has an interesting color contrast. She looks like a girl from the Goo-Goo dolls with those boots though!

Annie Leibovitz is insanely amazing. Period.

2nd favorite. Obsessed with the ruffles because they create form without overwhelming it as ruffles usually do.

Odd, but extremely entertaining.

I'm obsessed with trees and nude platforms so I have to love this one :)

Much closer to classic Alice. I can't decide if I like this one or not....

Most interesting outfit. By FAR.

  1. i LOVE yr holgas seriously....

    the silhouette one in the huge hole thing looks like the rabbit hole!!hahaha in a different way. but it is still amazing.

  2. Today's world is growing very rapidly. Everyone wants to look good. In this case cosplay outfit has a perfect balance between the lace and the open part. it gives you personal satisfaction. it has a wide variety of costumes. Cosplay Costume is one of top sellers this season.


  3. The dresses and the outfits are amazing! And so are the wigs. You must have had a good stylist for them. They remind me of my sister's Modu wigs and my cousin's Motown Tress wigs. They use those wigs for costume parties and photoshoots, too. This is a very wonderful gallery you've shared with us! I really love Disney's version of Alice in Wonderland!
