3,5m American McGee’s Alice by Victor

19-08-2009: it looks like Alice donned her classic look for the festival! If you want to see more pictures of Carrer de Bruniquer transformed into Alice’s Wonderland, check out Victor’s slide show of the festival here (Google has dismissed the Picasa webalbums unfortunately)

03-08-2009: If you happen to be in Barcelona during the Festa Major de Gràcia this year (15-21 August 2009) then be sure to visit Carrer de Bruniquer: in this street, you will be able to encounter a 3,5 meter tall incarnation of my American McGee’s Alice model!

Victor and several people from Barcelona’s Gràcia district are making it as part of the decorations for the festival for their street, which will have an Alice in Wonderland theme.

They’re making it out of cardboard, because even thicker paper won’t be strong enough for a model this big! To enlarge the parts from the original model, they projected the parts onto a wall and traced them with a marker.

You can imagine it’s a big project, so not something Victor can do on his own; but when it comes to preparing for a party, you’ll find there will always be people willing to lend a helping hand: picture 1 | picture 2 ;o)

Thank you for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model and have fun partying! ;o)

  1. it was really cheap to construct this model. Only expensive thing is the projector…

    Take care with the aspect ratio of the projector… and project the images in the correct way (4:3, 16:9) and to don’t distort the image. This was our first problem. Once solved the giant papercraft construction it’s easy as the small one.

    thank you for your comments!!

  2. lol
    over 3 meters. and i thought, that my 2m model was a big one ^^

    the idea with the projektor, is realy good. to bad, that i don´t have one :/

    1. Well, with a projector it’s easy to enlarge the existing papercraft parts, but it only gave them a good basis to start with I think: at these sizes and with cardboard, you can’t really handle it as if it were paper anymore…

      I think they are just going to paint it, because it is made from thick cardstock which you can’t really print (that would cost a fortune as well…… ;o)
