I made this as one of the items for the rainbow swap.  My partner likes Alice in wonderland and I had this idea to make a 3-D picture of Alice falling down the rabbit hole with all the objects floating around her.

Alice is made from a McDonald's happy meal Barbie.  I spray painted her and then painted on an Alice-type dress and gave her a new face.  I found little objects in my stash to float around her as she falls--buttons, dollhouse items, etc.

And I had this nice blue metallic paint that I just brushed over the gold frame.  It went together pretty fast, usually I spend much longer on my projects to get such great results!  I really like how it turned out!

This is so very cool! I couldn't even have guessed you used a happy meal Barbie for it! The dress is perfect as are the floating things about her! Great work!

I love it, and love that you used a happy meal doll, such great up cycling.

This is just plain cool. Love the way she seems to be falling downward.
