If you imagine a modern-day subculture version of the characters in Lewis Carroll's "Alice in Wonderland," you're likely to conjure up the same images Marcela Abal Acosta brings to life with 'Alice.'

Marcela Abal Acosta's 'Alice' pictorial pits the title character not as an curious little girl, but as an emaciated young woman with Gothic makeup and sky-high bed hair. The series is a twisted take on the original, and I love it. Check out some more "Alice in Wonderland"-inspired innovations below. Stats for Edgy Fairytale Editorials Trending: Older & Warm
