Said Alice to herself

More photos in my Flickr account...

Have you seen Jan Svankmajer's Alice? The cinematography and feel (forgotten, decayed Victoriana) reminds me of the video style that became the vogue for artists like Nine Inch Nails. It also reminds me of Kurotsubaki's sim (I had to go back once I realized that my photo settings were unflattering), and the sweet lost innocence of this dress. It's katat0nik's new Alice dress, and the ironic twist lies in the old book illustrations edging the fabric border; dark and almost grotesque imagery in such a lovely frock. (I am not surprised by this macabre secret in the fabric, however. I also hear rumor that there will be a limited edition version of the dress that is decayed and bloody...)

Thank you, Mourna Biziou, for posting about those great SiniStyle boots; as you can see I picked up a copy too.

[Small aside, just in case you were wondering: I've only been in SL for a year. I never figure that I've discovered something new! In fact, I should use the phrase that the inimitable Michami used, "New -- to me," just in case you might imagine that I think I've discovered a brand new store, or striped socks, or wearing pants -- honestly, I never think so. :D ]
