I recently followed Ethan leSabre on Twitter and not long after he posted about the completion of his Alice in Wonderland themed experience. Recently I’d visited some Alice inspired areas with friends so I thought I’d have a jump down the rabbit hole and have a look at Ethan’s.
My initial thought was how cute and quirky it all was, and that I’d like to have a house like this, with all these books laying around. I spent a little longer than I probably should have as I initially couldn’t figure out how to ‘follow the white rabbit’. Eventually I clicked the book, which was the obvious thing to do in hindsight, and began my journey into madness (okay, continued my journey into madness. Sanity has never been one of the my strong points).
The experience took you through a series of skyboxes with themes relating to the book which were all wonderful to walk around and take in, Ethan put a lot of effort into each room you entered and I did become a little snap happy. The first scene was my favourite due to the surprise of it after trying to start my journey. I stepped through a portal and was instantly disorientated by the sheer size and combination of patterns and shapes, which made for a great start.
In particular I enjoyed the scene with the teacup ride and sitting down for tea at the Hatter’s table, it felt like I’d entered the mind of the Hatter. It felt fluid and chaotic, yet in a strange way, civilised.
It was well worth popping in and having a look around, it’s always a thrill to see what other people put together, to have a glimpse into their mind. I also came across a few great items which I’d not seen before.
