So, upon setting up the characters I hope to use in my Alyce project, a friend and I were talking about the Mad Hatter. I asked, “Well, what if I want a Happy Hatter?” She laughed and said, well, what if the Hatter wore a bunch of different hats and took on a different personality based on whatever hat she (yes, my hatter as of right now is a she) was wearing. Needless to say, I love it! Love it, love it, love it! XD
Well, why make the Hatter a she? Well, why not? I think it’s good to challenge convention every now and then. As for a legitimate reason, I have yet to come up with one…I’ll keep thinking.
