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.
