**THANK YOU GUYS SOOOO VERY MUCH FOR THE FAVES AND COMMENTS! IT REALLY MEANS A LOT TO ME! **
ok, this is a mixture of digital painting and photo-manip in photoshop elements.
OK, this is my entry for the "Picture Yourself in Wonderland" contest....I just gotta leave it alone and stop updating it I keep finding stuff I wanna mess with, lol
My first shoot at a surreal piece...Took about 11 hours in all. Had a hard time painting as I have only a laptop mousepad....it's like drawing with a rock. Anyways, enough of my complaining. Since I only had a portion of me to work with, I had my boyfriend take more pictures of my lower half holding a paint can and a makeup brush I attempted to "Alice-ice" myself...well, "Red-Queen-ize" myself? I had some curtains on either side, but they seemed to take away from the rest of the piece, especially the paint dripping from the flowers.
I tried making the corset look like velvet, and the cards sewn into the dress...I have never been much of a seamstress but have always wanted to make an outfit similar to this
