Wonderland White Rabbit

The White Rabbit is one of the first strange characters Alice encounters on her adventure! In the original book he wears a waistcoat and carries a watch. Our White Rabbit pulled influence from a few sources.

When creating the White Rabbit character for our Alice shoot I was primarily inspired by the 1988 Svankmajer film “Něco z Alenky” (one of my alltime favorite movies) rather than the Disney version. Svankmajer’s Rabbit had sawdust leaking from his belly, blue protruding eyes, and a terrifying mouth. In this film adaptation the rabbit comes to life from a taxidermy one in Alice’s room which is why he’s so um…. shabby.

For Gloomth Girl Fine Lines’ White Rabbit character I wanted some small touches of Švankmajer’s White Rabbit worked into her overall style. I included a bulging doll eye in her hair, blue like the rabbit’s. And filled her wired braids with spiderweb and tattered gauze ribbons. Our White Rabbit has a medical undertone, with our Good Nurse dress.
