Tweedledee and Dum

Tweedledum and Tweedledee
    Agreed to have a battle;
For Tweedledum said Tweedledee
    Had spoiled his nice new rattle.
Just then flew down a monstrous crow,
    As black as a tar-barrel;
Which frightened both the heroes so,
    They quite forgot their quarrel

Ah! Alice's Adventure in Wonderland, perhaps one of my favorite stories of all time. I have a large collection of books and figures all placed lovingly in a china cabinet in my room. The little old lady inside of me loves it. I have two Alice in Wonderland tattoos as well. The badass 22 year old that I am, approves. My collection features most of the characters from the story and it's sequel but not Tweedledee and Tweedledum. So in a moment of exaggerated self confidence I made this: 

Because of all the different colors and details involved in this it's taken me a long time to finish these two brothers. Technically they're not even finished seeing as they are floating in a sea of white, a dimension without space or time...

I'll post an update whenever I get around to sewing the twins a home. For now, they're just one more piece to my every growing collection.
