This week saw me finally put the effort in to complete Steampunk Alice. All in all I am reasonably pleased with the way she turned out and how the various bits and bobs came together but there was room for improvement. I have also had a few other ideas so one day I might do this figure again.
What we have here is Alice herself along with a mechanical White Rabbit, both part of the same Twisted Miniatures kit. The mirror was a cheap Ebay dolls house purchase but a significant piece in the storyline. I used watch pieces for the name on the base and a few more as decoration. The playing card was just a colour print reduced in size. With hindsight I should have printed the Queen of Hearts so that’s a mistake down to me. I also wanted to get hold of a very small chess piece but couldn’t fine one and attempts at trying to make one were pitiful. I think both of these would have improved on the theme. The street lamp added some height and besides I had a spare one to use up! The clock was a last minute (sorry about the pun!) addition which I personally really like. It came in a packet She Who Must Be Obeyed bought at the local market a while back. The stall sells stuff that people who make their own cards buy.
To provide some perspective the surface area of the base is 4cm x 4cm. Surprising just how much can be fitted on an area of that size.
