This year’s theme was Alice in Wonderland, chosen by Julia for its versatility and relevance; “The theme of Alice in Wonderland is synonymous with the world of fashion, theatre and film.  This year celebrates the 150th anniversary of the publication of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll.  The theme adapts well into the world of Bodypainting and offers extensive interpretation of each character detailed in this exquisite book.  Think: Mystical, Decorative, Illusion, Mirage, Sinister, Tyranny, Warrior, Comedy.”
