The Cheshire Cat:
The Mad Hatter:
I have chosen these items for my costumes as they are unique and contrasting to the original outfits. They are more seductive and promiscuous and I feel the Cheshire Cat Masquerade Mask adds some elegance but more importantly – mystery to the piece. This is because we identify people via their face but the Cheshire Cat is known for his unique smile – this particular mask only allows you to see the eyes and mouth (smile). This enables the viewers to connect and understand the relevance and recognize the Cheshire Cat but also feel a slight unease that the rest of the face remains hidden.
