A Mad Tea Party


There was a table set out under a tree in front of the house, and the March Hare and the Hatter were having tea at it.

"No room! No room!" they cried out when they saw Alice coming. 
  "There is plenty of room!" said Alice indignantly, and she sat down in a large armchair at one end of the table. 

 "Have some wine," the March Hare said encouragingly. Alice looked round the table, but there was nothing but tea. "I don't see any wine,"she remarked.
   "There isn't any," said the March Hare.

"Your hair wants cutting," said the Hatter. He had been looking at Alice for some time with great curiosity, and this was his first speech.


 "You should learn not to make personal remarks," Alice said with some severity. "It's very rude."

The Hatter opened his eyes very wide on hearing this, but all he said was, "Why is a raven like a writing desk?"

"Not the same thing a bit!" said the Hatter. "Why, you might just as well say that 'I see what I eat' is the same as 'I eat what I see'!"

"It is the same thing with you," said the Hatter, and here the conversation dropped and the party sat silent for a minute, while Alice thought over all she could remember about ravens and writing desks.

 "The Dormouse is asleep again," the Hatter said, and he poured a little hot tea upon its nose.

"Have you guessed the riddle yet?" the Hatter said, turning to Alice again.
    "No, I give up," Alice replied. "What's the answer?"
    "I haven't the slightest idea," said the Hatter.
    "Nor I, said the March Hare.

"Idiot!" said the Queen, tossing her head impatiently, and, turning to Alice, she went on. "What's your name child?"

 "To the Looking-Glass world it was Alice that said, 
'I've a sceptre in hand, I've a crown on my head
Let the Looking-Glass creatures, whatever they be,
Come and dine with the Red Queen, the White Queen,
 and me!'"


"Then fill up the glasses as quick as you can,
And sprinkle the table with buttons and bran:
Put cats in the coffee and mice in the tea- 
And welcome Queen Alice with thirty-times-three!"

 "'O Looking-Glass creatures,' quoth Alice, 'draw near!
"Tis an honor to see me, a favor to hear:
"Tis a privilege high to have dinner and tea
Along with the Red Queen, the White Queen, and me!"

 "Then fill up the glasses with treacle and ink,
Or anything else that is pleasant to drink:
Mix sand with cider, and wool with the wine-
And welcome Queen Alice with ninety-times-nine!"

 The Queen turned crimson with fury and, after glaring at her for a moment, like a wild beast, began screaming "Off with her head! Off with-"

"At any rate, I'll never go there again!" said Alice as she picked her way through the wood. "It's the stupidest tea party I ever was at in all my life!"

 I hope everybody enjoyed this foray into my version of Wonderland. I have had this one in my head for a few years, but was unable to do it until now. I know it doesn't seem like it, but a lot of money and time goes into these shoots. If my parents weren't so supportive these would never happen. Also a huge thank you to my siblings and cousin, who endured this shoot not once but twice.
The first time, I only found out after that my card didn't save the pictures of the food fight, so I was left with a half a shoot. Luckily everyone was up for trying again. It took almost three hours to set this one up. Had a blast doing it, sorry for the crappy editing. I don't have either of my usual programs right now.
