NEW ALICE IN WONDERLAND DESIGNS + EVENTS!

We may be slightly Alice in Wonderland obsessed but it looks like we are not alone.   If you're ready for a change of season, some extremely fun, crazy events and designs to wear to them then this blog post is for you.

Let's start with the Queen of Hearts, our favourite madcap Queen; our new corset gown is a bold one in red, black and white with highlights of gold.  We think it's perfect for a themed wedding or Ball as it's easy for your partner to wear black & white with a dash of red, say in a cravat and bridesmaids will thank you for putting them in black dresses.

 We have matching hand bags, shopping tote bags, phone wallets and even high top sneakers and vegan boots if you want to go all out and have matching footwear (makes for great photos!)

Round the World with Alice

The UK

We're not going to be able to list every event and Alice location in this blog post so we'll highlight a few we really like and provide a link to a more comprehensive list.
For a tea room experience Alice in Wonderland style we like this amazing spot, the Richmond Tea Rooms in Manchester.

The Richmond Tea Rooms in Manchester are themed Alice in Wonderland from decor to amazing events

(we think this room really suits our Queen of Hearts corset gown & our red & black themed Alice outfits splendidly)

Richmond Tea Rooms hosts events throughout the year and have a big Alice themed Halloween party, if you're fortunate enough to be in the UK and near Manchester you can check out their event calendar here:   Richmond Tea Rooms

 For Halloween and events where you want to wear purple we recommend any of our 'Dark Alice' designs like the ones below - whether in a full corset gown, a Belle skirt or summer dress, the Dark Alice fabric looks amazing.

Dark Alice corset gown, custom sized to your measurements and made in Australia

 All our Australian made corsets, corset gowns and skirts are made to measure.

 Dark Alice in Wonderland purple options for more casual events

summer dresses in Alice in Wonderland prints in dark purple or dark green

 

These are two of our new casual Alice in Wonderland dresses, the skirts are quite full so adding a short tulle petticoat is an option for tea parties and events.

 

Alice in Wonderland history: Where it all began:  Oxford

2022 marked the 150th anniversary of the Alice in Wonderland Story.  Oxford in the UK was the place to be on the 2nd of July this year. The city celebrates its famous author & his inspiration for the story, Alice Liddell with an event called 'Alice's Day' which occurs on or as close as possible to the 4th of July which is the official Alice's Day anniversary.

There are many events that go on throughout Alice's Day that re-enact scenes from Alice in Wonderland as well as fascinating tours of key sites that were the origin of many locations in the story.  Find out more here:  Alice's Day

The White Rabbit of course!  We feature him on our Alice in Wonderland designs quite a lot, he is one of our favourite characters.

We have quite a few Alice in Wonderland sneaker designs, these are made when you order and make a lovely gift for birthday or Christmas (just allow enough time for making and shipping especially at busy gift giving seasons).

To round out our list of UK Alice in Wonderland themed events and locations we thought Britain Magazine's list was quite good, some of the events have been and gone but the venues and annual events remain.

Moving to other parts of the world and there's quite a few Alice in Wonderland themed events happening!

Immersive Outdoor Escape Room Alice in Wonderland hits Brisbane 24-9-22

For one day only, the streets of Brisbane will be transforming into a giant, escape-room-style experience on Saturday the 24th September, 2022. Don’t be late!
CluedUpp Games are the creators of this now worldwide phenomenon, they create immersive outdoor experiences, games that you play with your friends and family.
Find out more and if you're lucky, you'll be able to get tickets to their next Alice in Wonderland adventure at CluedUpp Games.
You can also find out more about their other incredible immersive games at https://www.cluedupp.com/



For immersive, action packed days like this where you still want to be in costume & on theme we recommend one of our summer dresses and either a comfy pair of our vegan Alice themed boots (our customers rave about the comfort factor in these) or the Alice hi-top sneakers.

Just a heads up, the next Alice in Wonderland official day will be July 4th, 2023 - bookmark it on your calendar and enjoy some extra fun facts here about Lewis Carroll

 This is also going to give you and us plenty of time to organise costumes!  At most times of the year our make time for corsets, skirts & gowns is two weeks; boots, bags & the summer dresses you want to allow four weeks as they are made outside of Australia so delivery time needs to be factored in.

 White Rabbit reminder to place orders for Gallery Serpentine Alice in Wonderland designs ahead of time especially at Halloween and Christmas
