“The rabbit-hole went straight on like a tunnel for some way, and then dipped suddenly down, so suddenly that Alice had not a moment to think about stopping herself before she found herself falling down what seemed to be a very deep well.

Either the well was very deep, or she fell very slowly, for she had plenty of time as she went down to look about her, and to wonder what was going to happen next…”

Join The House of Constantine and the Toronto Kiki Ballroom Alliance for a tea party like one you’ve never seen! On top of some truly tittilating Alice in Wonderland inspired categories such as vogue performance, realness, runway, best dressed, we’ll be featuring a spectacular grand march, pre- and post-show entertainment, and a photobooth (so look sharp!)

• Face •
Off with her face! And present it with the elegance of the Queen and the confidence of a stern ruler, topped off with a crown.

• Bizarre •
“At last the Caterpillar took the hookah out of its mouth, and addressed her in a languid, sleepy voice, ‘Who are YOU?’ said the Caterpillar.” Show us who you really are by paying homage to the metamorphosis of the caterpillar with an effect that transforms.

• Sex Siren•
Are you a White Rabbit or a March Hare?

• BQUIP: Humpty Dumpty had a great fall, but you certainly won’t! Bring an egg, but if it cracks it’s a chop!

• Best Dressed •
“Yes, that’s it,” said the Hatter with a sigh: “ it ’s always tea-time.” Come in your most elegany High Tea ensemble.

• Runway •
It may be a tea party, but at least we’re in the garden. European, done wings to be our fluttering butterflies. Female figures, hum through the flowers as birds of a feather, while All Americans surround us as creeper vines and ivy on the trellis.

• Tag Team Performance •
‘Let’s fight till six, and then have dinner,’ said Tweedledum. Tweedledum and Tweedle Dee could never stop fighting. This time the the schoolboy twins join forces in matching effects.

• Shoe Fetish •
The Cheshire Cat could disappear whenever he pleased. Bring us an ovah shoe you can see through — transparent vs. transluscent!

• Body •
The dormouse slept through almost the whole tea party — it’s time to wake us up. Don’t forget your whiskers!

• Realness •
Tweedledee and Tweedledum were full of rhymes, including the Walrus and the Carpenter. The Walrus will be in the house already — who will be the carpenter?

• Virgin Runway•
Bring it in the Constantine house colour, Emerald Green.
