Grin by RagdollStiches Grin by RagdollStiches
My entry for the "Picture Yourself In Wonderland" Contest.

So many ideas swirled around in my head before I finally settled on this one. Originally, my version of the Cheshire Cat was completely without clothing, but just for fun I tried adding a stitch of fabric here and there, until he was finally sporting this nifty little uniform. I liked it so much I left it like that, which is probably for the best since him being naked looked a bit too risqué. Plus he looked more like a "she" before, what with all the fuchsia fur and all. The slinky pose just kind of developed on its own, but I imagine that the Cat is so cocky that it seems to fit really well.

lol! Seriously? That's awesome sauce! :D
I'm gonna be the Mad Hatter for Halloween this year. Already started collecting pieces of my costume. Got a lot of work ahead of me though cuz it's all pretty much from scratch, which is fine. That's half the fun! How about you?

I had to make it up as I was in hot topic since they didn't carry any cat costumes like that. Maybe next year, I'll be better prepared. X3

Thank you so much! I've been trying different things with eyes, which is always the first thing I color in, everything else comes second.

I picture myself either the white queen or just alice. What do you think?

Anyway, I love this! I hope you win, cuz this is just adorable! And yeah, I see you as the cute Cheshire cat! :heart:

RagdollStiches Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2010
Oh dude, I think you could be either one, you have traits of both! You're one of the sweetest people I know (like White Queen) and you're also one of the bravest (Alice)!

Thank you so much! Entering the contest was kind of a last minute decision, cuz I was finding it so hard to settle on an idea. Whether I win or not, I really loved creating this! I think the best part about being the Cheshire Cat would be being able to always flash that amazing grin (and the ears too, I love huge cat ears)!

Alex you keep making my day with amazing Alice stuff! :heart: I'm loving it darlin'.

Normally I'd be iffy about Ches having an outfit but the one you designed for him is simply brilliant and just fits him somehow so I adore it! So kudos!

And the grin and pose are very smarmy. ;D And his eyes are gorgeous. Awesome job sweetie!

Thank you so much! I tried doing him in blue/gray colors at first but I didn't care for how that turned out so I put him into the fuchsia colors sported by the Disney cartoon version. Looked a lot better then! ^^

One of the most awesome videos of all time, plus it blows my mind that the guy who created it had this kind of time on his hands to make up such a funny song.

lol! Thank you so much! My favorite character is usually the Mad Hatter, but I got this crazy idea and it just kinda stuck with me. I love military-type uniforms, I wish I could walk around in one all the time but it just gets so damn hot here, I'd probably melt! :rofl:
