I got this tattoo on my birthday back in April. I haven’t posted anything or told anyone about it because I can’t quite articulate how much it means to me. I’ve been telling people who catch a glimpse of it that I want to “see through Alice’s eyes forever” and I guess that’s a great way to sum it up, people that have met me would probably agree that I do a pretty good job of it.
I came up with the idea for this tattoo in the first couple weeks after I moved to New York City, and everything was moving so fast and I was meeting people and doing things I never thought I could do being as introverted as I felt that I was. I would go home to my apartment overwhelmed and I would curl up in a ball on my bed and read Alice in Wonderland and remember doing my first 365 and running around in my forest and baking cookies with my mom and building forts and cutting out paper stars and falling into rabbit holes and I decided I never wanted to lose that part of myself.
I wake up everyday and strive to have the sense of wonderment and compassion and curiosity of a small child, and even though it took me awhile to figure it out I realized that’s what all of my photographs are about: trying to help other people feel the same way, if only for a brief moment. So shake hands with your inner child today.
I visit Carsland in Disneyland California to see just how authentic it is to the movie.
Hint: It’s very!

My parasol was looking kinda plain so I decided to fancy it up. Took about four days to complete using a 2B pencil and Zebra brush pens.

No but actually this is a GREAT way to present a dress like this! A regular standing mannequin wouldn’t show off all the layers and details in the skirt!
it also wouldn’t show off all the ol’ razzle dazzle
