Here are the 3 plush pieces I created for the Go Ask Alice show. I am very excited to be a part of this show because of the Alice In Wonderland theme. The show will be held at the Paul Cumes Fine Art Gallery in Santa Barbara, CA, from Dec.5th - Jan7th. The opening is this Saturday from 6-9pm. Stop by if you're in the area! :)
Alice In Wonderland
"Well! I've often seen a cat without a grin; but a grin without a cat! It's the most curious thing I ever say in my life!"
I was very excited to create my own version of Alice. I wanted to give her a slight twist from the typical look by putting her hair up in buns, giving her a super frilly collar, and deviating from the traditional blue dress by using a fabric featuring all four card suits. She wouldn't be complete without a little white rabbit buddy and a golden key! :)
"Oh my ears and whiskers, how late it's getting!"
I made the white rabbit so he matches Alice with his card suits and frilly collar. I added button eyes to give him a handmade feel. :)
Twee + Dee
"I know what you're thinking about,' said Tweedledum: `but it isn't so, nohow.'
`Contrariwise,' continued Tweedledee, `if it was so, it might be; and if it were so, it would be; but as it isn't, it ain't. That's logic.'"
Twee + Dee were inspired by the characters Tweedledee +Tweedledum, the card suit soldiers, and gothic lolita fashion. I wanted to stay in the pink/red/black/white colour theme and I wanted them to be conjoined twin girls. I really like how they turned out!
My Mom wrote a nice blog piece about it, and even took a little video of my photoshoot! :D
