My original title for this post was “queering the wonderland”. I let it stand for about half a second before diagnosing myself with a serious case of postmodernism. “Queer” as a verb? What’s next, “addressivity”? ”
You might remember that I wore this dress to my high-school graduation, going on two years ago now. I haven’t worn it much since then: I didn’t find that it suited my collegiate style very well. It’s long overdue for a resurgence, though. Today I’m enjoying my guise as a slightly punky Alice.
I like to believe the skull belonged to the White Rabbit. Times get tough down in Wonderland. Magical tea cakes only fill you up so much.
I love the color of these tights. They play up the surrealism of the outfit by making me feel like an android. Or a gynoid, if you want to get technical. And since it appears to be PoMo Day here at Color Me Brazen, we’re gonna get technical.
