ADO Alice in Wonderland Blog Event



Todays the Day for all doll artists to join in the Art Dolls Only big blog event celebrating Alice in Wonderland. Check them all out from 8th July and have a great weekend looking at all the dolls on other artists blogs.




I made two Wonderland Dolls - well three really , but one is a secret !!!!
Let me first introduce Alice to you.


She is made from paperclay over a foil armature and then dressed in hand dyed silks.
I gave her blue lambswool hair because Alice is certainly a bit of a strange little girl !
And nothing comes stranger than having a pink flamingo under your skirts. That is Alice's secret ! She is a topsy turvey doll. Turn her upside down and what do you have but another doll, and of course what better than the famous flamingo ! With pink hair !!!


That is Alice and the flamingo - now see them both at once .

Told you it was STRANGE ! Now could the Queen of Hearts be a little weird too?


This haughty Queen is dressed in her best antique trimmed finery. She has a hand turned base under her skirts- as the perfect Chess piece.
Have fun down the rabbit hole !

Amazing! I love the pic of Alice and the flamingo they look like they are in a dream boat, the flamingo traveling upside down in the imaginary sea.
The queen, properly imperious.
