This weekend a trip to Liverpool's Odeon cinema was arranged, to see the new Alice in Wonderland film!
The movie was amazing, and the costumes so stunning and unique that it made me want to sew right away and design some clothes inspired by the film! Every costume was so beautiful and says a lot about the character, such as Alice's Chinese-inspired dress for the high-society ball she went to, and her trousers in the Victorian period, where trousers for ladies were frowned upon. The costumes I loved the most, however, were the outfits the Red and White queens wore in their childhood, whist they ate the jam tarts. Very cute with all the details and embellishments!
The story was also very interesting, and offered a new perspective on quite a few characters, which I found surprising and pleasing, especially with the Red Queen (I love the Queen of Hearts and Helena Bonham Carter, so the combination of the two together makes one wonderful character!). It has prompted me to get out my copy of Through the Looking Glass, straight after I finish my Agatha Christie; and I'll certainly be getting this movie when it comes out on DVD!
For a while we just talked at the meet, and had lunch in a cafe fittingly called Rococo, where they do amazing butterscotch milkshakes! It was really nice to see my friends and meet some lovely new people.
Here's what I wore:
Blouse: Baby the Stars Shine Bright
Headbow: Baby the Stars Shine Bright
Socks: Baby the Stars Shine Bright
Shoes: H! by Henry Holland
Bag: Angelic Pretty
I was going for an old-school sweet look with the white and cream paired together and black shoes. The dress was Alice themed, of course!
As a bonus, here is a picture of me that was printed in PYLOT magazine, when the photos were taken at the last meetup I attended. Sorry about my book being in the photo, I couldn't be bothered taking a new photo with only the magazine in, as I got them at the same time.
I look a tad little girl lost, though I do really love this photo!
