We talked to project manager Chris Schaff as well as sculptor and steampunk fan Sam Greenwell about what went into her creation.

      The ďFemme FatalesĒ figure series offers another interpretation of how young Alice might have looked a decade or so after that first tumble down the rabbit hole! Her dress is a nod to the traditional look we all remember from the stories, but her shy-yet-seductive stance lets us know she may not be as innocent as we believed.
