Following Tonner Doll Company's motto Believe in the Power of Play, master fabric doll artist Sara Lanzillotta (www.devoutdolls.com) created a wardrobe suite for the Dreary clan that highlights their refreshingly peculiar look while broadening the boundaries of their seemingly bleak lifestyle. Agnes, Viktor, and Sister Dreary enjoy the pleasures of playtime inside Dreary Manor. Thanks to Sara Lanzillotta's exceptional vision, the Dreary clan can come out of the dark and indulge in diversions inspired by favorite literary characters now again in a movie by visionary director Tim Burton.
Agnes, Viktor and big Sister Dreary spend a day in Wonderland impersonating their favorite characters in a colorful tribute to Lewis Carroll's classic tale.
Sister Dreary offers more tea in her colorful Mad Hatter's costume comprising a treasure trove of details: teapot and cup embroidery on the full skirt, lace cuffs and a monumental hat. Viktor as the White Rabbit seems to be puzzled by the whole affair.
Pink satin rabbit ears on a white fluffy plush cap give Viktor bunny good looks. His expertly tailored jacket, vest, and knickers are a work of doll fashion art.
Agnes is not at all convinced that her thirst needs satiating. Her black and white Alice dress, "Drink me!" bottle with tag are by Sara Lanzillotta. For more information on Sara Lanzillotta's amazing world of doll art, visit her at Devout Dolls.
