Alice in Candyland By MJ Hsu x Martian Toys

It’s always great to see Mei-Jean Hsu customs and today is one of those days where we get to see MJ’s work again. This time is a little different going with a theme of Alice in Wonderland. We know that MJ can produce her own IP like MJ’s . Alice in Candyland  is MJ’s take of the obvious take on Alice in Wonderland and a example of if you’re going do a well known character or based on something mainstream then make it well and put your own spin on it. MJ does that with excellence!

We love the fact that MJ is upping her game by trying out new materials and MJ has succeeded.

“I’ve been experimenting with new materials since my last Matsu custom, and this piece is no exception. She has handmade “glass eyes” that I painted and domed with clear resin. Her hair is made from soft yarn. The base is inspired by decoden – a Japanese craft trend that involves making everyday items look like kawaii-themed sweets. I really wanted to make a Dunny look like a cute doll”
