Happy Late-Holidays...

Except for New Years... so I've got a couple days on that holiday.

I actually requested a video from LollyMalfoy on youtube, whom completed the video featured below. I really wanted someone to do a video with "Post Modern Girls" by The Strokes and Regina Specktor for the Hatter// Alice relationship. I think it turned out wonderfully. She did an awesome job.

Okay, I've been studying the pattern on Alice's dress...

And I think I've figured out what it is... kind of... at least I've narrowed it down to two close interpretations. The blue stands for the white. lol. I think the first one is closest... What do you think?

Btw, thanks guys for over 300 views!

Finally Picked Someone to Make My Alice Outift!

Okay, so I put an Alchemy bid on Etsy for Alice's dress and jacket, and I got 13 bids! I was not expecting to have so many bids and interest! I had about 5-7 bids in the price range I was looking for and they all had pretty impressive portfolios. But one particularity stood out. Kali Oseano. Her porfoilo was incredible, and her price very reasonable. I'm so excited. The dress to the right was one of her creations. I can't wait to start working with her!

Through some research...

And looking at another person's blog, I have found that the shoes Alice is wearing are these:

John Fluevog Women's Inge Cuffed Boot
* Shaft height measures approximately 9 3/4" from arch
* Boot opening measures approximately 12 1/2" around
* Heel measures approximately 3"

They could be found here::

But they seem to have sold out. If anyone finds another place to buy them, please let me know!

Hatter//Alice videos.

I love the Hatter and Alice relationship as much as anyone else, but I gotta say, I'm getting a little sick of all the music videos on youtube pertaining to it. So I found one that didn't, that I just happen to be in love with and thought I'd share it.

Over 100 Views!

Although I'm pretty sure that over 50% of those are me, I'm still pretty happy that at least a few people have been reading what I've written.

PLEASE COMMENT. Maybe I'll fedex you a popsicle. A cherry one. Those are the best.

<-- That is me, by the way. I look silly.

Great Fabrics for Alice's Jacket

I found this for the jacket. It's a beautiful no stretch velvet.

It can be found at Distinctive Fabric.

It has come to my attention that distinctive fabric doesn't ship internationally, so I found another fabric on another site that may work, not as well, but still workable.

It's another no stretch velvet burgundy.

It can be found at the Fabric Fashion Club Website.

I love these items from etsy!

A cute little pocket watch with the Mad Hatter tea party scene on it. I love the old illustrations! And I love even more that it is on a pocket watch! I want to get this to wear purely as a necklace.

It is a real, working, quartz movement pocket watch. It is battery operated and it is so cute!

It is sold by finkgifts, for $25.00.

This are the cutest cuff links! I totally want to buy them for my fiance for the wedding! (Did I mention I am having an Alice in wonderland tea party wedding?!) They are so cute.

I know, they are technically not Alice in Wonderland items, but come on... rabbit. And even if you don't like Alice, they are just adorable. And totally worth the buy!

They are sold by CosmicFirefly, for $34.50.

Okay, if you like Alice, you NEED to have one of these necklaces in EVERY SINGLE COLOR. Why? To match all of your outfits of course! These are so adorable and come in any color you could think of. And you can even add glitter! How cute is that?! She can even make it glow in the dark.

They are sold and produced by NeliaTenlion, for only $7.00.

Alice's Blue Dress from Alice (2009)

Alice's dress from Alice (2009) was pure genius on the part of Angus Strathie, one of the masterminds behind Moulin Rouge's (2001)costumes. The way he infused Alice's pinafore with ric rack trim on the blue mod dress is wonderful. I am even a fan of the subtle diamond pattern as well as the slight white pebbling on the fabric. It seems to be made of a heavier cotton blend. I am also a big fan of the cute little pockets, as pockets add a nice whimsical touch to any dress.

People seem to be divided on the stockings, and I must say I am too. I understand their purpose in to bring out the blue and to make everything stand out, color wise, and to give Alice that tough, modern, hip look. However, the fire engine red wasn't the perfect match to me. I would've gone with something more red wine-ish or burgandy, with a tinge of plum, to tie them more to her jacket. But as they are, they are just a plain pair of fire-engine red stockings.

And her shoes were also a wonderful choice. Heels would've been too sophiticated and impossible for her to kick butt in. And flats would've looked terribly childish and would've worked against Alice's tough image.

Her coat is a funny little piece because it happens to be the same length as her dress. I guess Hatter is just magic like that, but although it wasn't my favorite part of her outfit, it was a strong, good piece. It seems to be made with a plum velvet, possibly silk, trimmed with what looks like silk ribbon of some sort that is just a shade or two lighter than the actual coat. It has two over sized buttons for top closure and seems to be tapered around the waist and then flair out a bit for volume.

(thanks to for most the wonderful pictures)
