queen of hearts

by gilda rêvasseur on June 17, 2008

i realized i haven’t uploaded my design work in a long long time!!! so you’re going to be seeing a whole flood of this, since i have a whole semester’s work that i haven’t put up!!
my sister and  at tokyo disneyland
(my sister and i at tokyo disneyland, christmas 2006!)

when we had to do an accessories collection, my instant reaction was to look to alice in wonderland for inspiration. i’ve always loved alice in wonderland, both the book and the disney rendition. and i thought both the story and the colors would be a great inspiration for an accessories line!

when i first did my croquis, it was really funny because i had just read the “darker” version, and everything that i was sketching was full of leather, studs and was a little kinky in a sort of s&m/fetish kind of way. which i really liked!! but i decided to save those sketches for a bigger project where i could incorporate with clothes, so i re-watched disney’s version of alice, and looked back at some of my photos from disneyland. i really liked the idea of creating a line for the queen of hearts, who is such a funny and ridiculous character!!

i quite like it, if i may say so myself. i want some of the shoes definitely. i concentrated on hard accessories, which means shoes, bags and belts. (fyi: soft accessories would be hats and scarves, etc.) i also drew them in various sizes, just because of the magic stuff that alice drinks, that makes her grow big and small. just a little detail i wanted to throw in! :)

Aw, that is so cute! I want to see more of your design work. Oh, and thanks for popping over to my blog & leaving a comment about some of my Flickr Favs the other week.

I saw the photos of you & Gala at Pat Fields place on iCiNG & you looked fabulous.

I’m going to have a nosey around the rest of your blog now! ;)

I only realised now that you drew in the little bottle of potion and the cupcake that she eats! How cute!

On the subject of croquet, I discovered last weekend that there’s a croquet club tucked away down the road from my house. I’ve always wanted to take up croquet! I’m contemplating joining it …

I’m thinking only if they play with flamingos and hedgehogs though …

The future surely seems bright for Grow Perfect Technologies and the 357 Magnum LED grow light.
Unlike other programs, the information technology
classes need more practical tuition than theory. With the global economic growth
and rising cost of raw materials, closed style upper suture and
closed automatically operate on the shoe manufacturers would be the inevitable choice.
