So long as people keep making dresses that look like the TARDIS I’m going to keep on posting them. This dress by Alice In Ivory can also be seen below on a mannequin with a slightly more formal top:
Deviant artist steevinlove has been hard at work re-imagining the Disney princesses as Comic book heroines, he’s done a good job and come up with some cringe-worthy names for them… Apparently the inspiration came from the Disney/Marvel merger. I just think it’s awesome he’s included Mary Poppins it’s good to see the British contingent represented…
Re-imagined well known heroines of history, fairy tales and fables coming together as a team of superheroes known as “The Defenders of the Enchanted Kingdom” Their lives have taken mysterious turns and led some down darker paths that have brought them together to protect their magical land.
I can’t find a source for these images based on American McGee’s Alice: Madness returns, but they are stunning… I’ve not played the game yet but Avarinne has been playing loads and it’s is also absolutely stunning.

This is a really interesting study which probably explains the psychology behind religion.
Scientists from the University of Kent split students into groups, and make them perform a task that was so difficult the only way they could complete it was to cheat.
One of the groups was told that there was an invisible princess called Alice watching them play the game. The children were asked if they believed in Alice and of the 11 who did only 1 cheated. Interestingly enough of the 7 who didn’t believe 5 cheated but only after they’d physically checked that there was no Alice by waving their hands through the air where she was.
It would have been interesting to see whether they would have cheated if they could not verify the existence of Alice, say because she was behind a glass wall.
This reminds me of another study I once read about in which people were more likely to act honestly if they were exposed to pictures of eyes.
