Happy Halloween

The Alice books hold a strong appeal to those who enjoy the dark and gothic, so what better time than Halloween to explore some items which have a touch of the night about them...

Not sure if this is a raven or a crow, but it is certainly monstrous and is bound to terrify Tweedledum and Tweedledee and distract them from any quarrels they may have.

More terrifying than terrified, this fantastic doll, inspired by American Mcgee's Alice, is made by Tattered Rags.

Sadly she has already been sold, but Jodi Cain, who made her, says she will happily make you another. Or perhaps you'd prefer a copy of her Alice and Mad Hatter dolls.

If you would like some grisly Alice art to adorn your walls then this 3D shadowbox featuring a genuine rabbit skull should fit the bill nicely. (Well, maybe not nicely...)

Or if decapitation tickles your fancy, then this ever-so-slightly gruesome portrait of the Queen of Hearts may be for you.

It seems her executioner has already encountered the mouse from the Pool of Tears. And the poor old March Hare has met not only her executioner, but her taxidermist as well.

Well, we're off trick or treating...

Hope you have a safe and happy Halloween.
