This is my "Down the Rabbit Hole" costume from the new Alice in Wonderland movie. My recreation was based on promotional materials and seeing the film in theaters once, so please forgive the small inaccuracies ^_^ The dress and gloves were made entirely from scratch by me.
The photo was taken by , at the at the Exhibition Grounds in Toronto.
"the bridge…the one glimmering light…the clouds hanging grimly in the sky…the misty colours pierced gently..." These were some of the thought processes going through my mind as I waited till dusk in order to take the darker more cosmopolitan photo of Sydney.
I had seen so many bright, sunny pictures of Sydney (a cliche i`m guilty of myself) whilst the night photos seemed to try and replicate cities such as New York. In creating this piece I wanted to avoid that, and capture a picture that is 100% Sydney and 100% unique. My interpretation, my change, my view of the City
So one train ride to Milson`s Point, a few hours waiting till dusk and many pieces of camera equipment dropped in the harbour later I perched my camera up onto the wooden sleepers, waited for the boats to clear, focused and shot.
The character has changed a bit since this interpretation, and in fact this scene doesn't even happen anymore, but I have to say, I got the same thrill out of drawing this that I did when I first approached this picture back in 2009.
I drink Dr. Pepper down to the last drop of flavor.
The 23 lines in the back symbolize the 23 flavors of Dr. Pepper.
This is the most straightforward design of the ideas I came up with for this contest. I decided to go further with this in traditional media, rather than digital because it seemed to have more life to it. Glad to have a submission for this contest. May all entrants do well!
