“Off with his head!” she says, without even looking round.
Oh, it’s such a chore to be the Queen in Wonderland. All those lands to rule over. All those pesky difficulties to settle. A trial about stolen tarts to preside over. All those executions to order. And that blonde girl…what is her name again? Ah yes, Alice. Whatever will you do with her?
Well, you might be a foul-tempered monarch and ever-so-slightly wicked, but one thing is for sure: you have gotta look good when you’re doing all this queen business. How else will you get the King of Hearts and all your subjects to take you seriously? So put on this ruffly, lacy Deluxe Queen of Hearts Costume and get ready to rule!
Seriously, nobody – not even that Alice girl – is going to sabotage your reign over Wonderland when you’re gussied up like this. The red velvet corset is fit only for a Queen of Hearts, with its constructed bodice with boning and support like old-fashioned royal dresses, only with a sassy modern twist. The velvet peplum is edged in regal black and gold lace and puffs out over a gold brocade skirt. (Only the best for you!). You’ve got a black lace train, an elaborate choker with a faux gem heart pendant and a heart motif that makes it clear just who you are. Top it off with the red velvet crown edged in gold. Then head off to the Wonderland party and watch your subjects bown down and offer you all varieties of stolen tarts!
