shooting: alice at court.


i'm a big fan of alice's adventures in wonderland - especially the book, written by lewis carroll (i'm so grateful for this story, he is a genius!), but also of the various film versions: disney's animated cartoon of 1951 and also of the latest film version by tim burton from 2010, starring johnny depp and mia wasikowska. 

i really adored the costumes alice wore in the course of the film - and especially this dress she wore at the court of the queen of hearts, the latter played by helena bonham carter (also a genious, i love her, also as bellatrix lestrange in the harry potter films!)




this wonderful dress creation in red and black and white, with layers and layers of tulle, the phenomenal petticoat and the playing card design is fabulous! a long time i dreamed of making an alice in wonderland shooting, and i really wanted to have this fabulous dress for this special occasion! and i found it. OMG i really found it, and it was way too expensive ... but i didn't care, haha ... i just thought that i'd make this shooting and resell the dress afterwards.



my photographer joe (click), who also made the holi colour shooting (click) and the one with the balloons and the pink dress (click), took photos of me in the castle garden of the rokoko castle in schwetzingen - which is a very beautiful location for photo shootings or simply a little stroll on a sunny day.

the shooting was fun and i hope that you like the photos!
