My entry for the Alice contest!
I was so excited to see the way they made up Anne Hathaway to be the White Queen. I loved that they emphasized her dark eyes and eyebrows, because I have the same features! It's hard to cover them up to dress as fair-featured characters like Alice, so I was so pleased with the White Queen's design!
While working on this I tried to channel the darker side of the character, maybe before she had taken her "vows". Always the favorite child, doted on by her parents, and constantly praised for her beauty and talent, I'm sure she grew up quite vain. I imagine this as the moment she first ascends from White Princess to White Queen, realizing the power she now holds. She will have to make many mistakes and maybe lose something dear to her before she realizes the error of her ways and the dangers of being drunk with power. You can still see a glimmer of her old ways in Miss Hathaway's performance.
This is my first real experiment with my first DSLR camera, a Canon Rebel T2i (EOS 550). Lots of editing afterwords in Photoshop.
