Through the Looking Glass

A favorite muse of mine over the last few years has been sweet, fair-haired Alice. I know the original Alice, for which Lewis Carroll first wrote his fantastic tales, was dark-haired; but for me Alice shall forever be blonde and sky blue.
Here are some of the many faces of Alice that I've made and parted with over the last three years.

Where would Alice be

without her colorful compainions?

Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dumb

(or is that Tweedle Dumb and Tweedle Dee?)

...

The White Rabbit, forever running late

...


And of course, the Great Decapitator herself,

The Queen of Hearts.

(I've made a fair number of Heartly Queens

over the years as well, but that's for another post.)

Who acts as your muse?

  6. ALL are whimsically delightful...I think my favorite is Tweedle Dee & Dum! '-)

    There is just "something" about "Alice in Wonderland" that continues to inspire/fascinate us.

    PS: Thanks for the compliment on my new pieces as well!

    Hugs,
    Chris :)

  8. My muse is New York City. It inspired me to simplify before it ate me alive.

    I adore all of the dolls in this post - I own many of your dolls too. :)

  12. Thank youall for you kind comments! They do my heart good.

    Stephanie- New York would eat me up and spit me out much worse for wear. The speed and noise of the city would have me hiding under my covers. You must be very brave :)

    Rima- Nope, never have done that particual Alice. Sounds like it would lend itself well to animation (*hint*hint*).
