I'm back in business, of sorts on a borrowed computer, but from now on things will be a bit more organized and steady in these parts. So let's catch up quickly today with the last release from MoYou London featuring their new collection inspired by Alice in Wonderland and their latest Festive Collection holiday plate.
Welcome Alice! My excitement for these plates was visceral...I told you once before Disney's Alice in Wonderland is one of my holy grails. An instant mood elevator and a lesson in how not to live my live. Yes Alice you alone in the forest singing Good Advice while tears stream down your face altered my lifeview forever at the age of 7.
Did I mention I own a a necklace that is script written as "We are all mad here...." You know I love typography! I want this plate quite badly!
Here's where the source of my unhappiness starts. This plate is cute. Adorable in fact, but not at all to the level of my expectations that I had for this collection. This is me and the Space Collection all over again. I wanted 5th Element and instead I got cartoonish imagery. Here I wanted Tim Burton and Disney epic beauty or even the original illustrations from the book and instead I got...more cartoons. Sigh
I love the flamingo's here. That's about it though :( I really wanted these plates to be more than they are. Did you also realize that one of the collections. I believe the Kitty or the Princess Collection has original Disney images of Alice on them? Yup in my mind those along with the plate from the Fairy Tale Collection were much more imaginative and cute. The plate is adorable but not really what I had in mind.
Love the top hats and Cheshire cat grins. However....I'm pretty sure the same cheshire cat grins are on a Loja BBF plate I own....so....Does anyone else feel a bit let down by these plates or were expecting a bit more? If you love them too let me know! Now let's take a look at the Festive plate....
