Alice in Wonderland seems popular nowadays, what with SyFy's "Alice" just come on and that new movie with Johnny Depp playin' the Hatter comin' out. This doesn't look much like Chessie though. O.o Looks good though!
Its probably because the characters are so famous, even if you haven'tt seen the films or read the books you will know them. Also they give so much room for doing your own take, you can make them more human, or sexy, or dark or even just different to the ones before. Just shows how good Lewis Carrol was.
