"Springtime in Japan", a Victorian era ball costume c. 1867
It’s always a pleasure to go to events with fannyrosie. After Sainte-Dolores we went to a very cool bar in Montreal with some Lolita friends! Thankfully I will get to see her again in a few weeks time, as she’ll be visiting our community in Toronto.
It’s always a pleasure to see you! And I dare say we look rather good considering this picture was taken at the end of the day.

Wedding dress, circa 1860.
What would Alice look like if she was not a Victorian British girl? For a creative challenge, I wanted to abandon Alice’s mainstream appearance as popularized by Disney’s 1951 film, and re-imagine her in the style of my favorite artist, Sulamith Wulfing.
As a part of this challenge, I chose to keep all the original colors of her costume, such as her white stockings, black shoes, blue dress, apron, hair band and blond hair. I reinterpreted these elements with costuming traditions of other cultures, particularly Ukrainian and Norwegian, adding a little of my own wonderland into the mix.
