#AliceOnQueen pop-up hits Toronto for ‘Alice Through The Looking Glass’

Alice on Queen pop-up with Yolanda Gampp

You’d better hurry, or you’ll be late, for a very important date. The #AliceOnQueen pop-up event has arrived in Toronto for one week, and celebrates the May 27th release of Alice Through The Looking Glass with the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party table brought to life courtesy of YouTube’s How To Cake It star Yolanda Gampp and her team.

Featuring the iconic Tea Party table, with the Mad Hatter’s hat recreated as a cake, the Alice on Queen pop-up has something for all the Alice fans, with some lining up last Saturday to meet Gampp last Saturday, while the first 100 guests sampled one of her cakes.

The impressive Tea Party table of treats is certainly the highlight of the exhibit, but the room features a number of fun tidbits from Alice Through The Looking Glass. For one thing, there’s the Travel Through The Looking Glass experience, which was at D23 last year, and lets fans transform into Alice, the Mad Hatter, the Red Queen, the White Queen, the White Rabbit, or the Cheshire Cat.

There is also a photo-op with Time, set design sketches of Underland, and fans can check out the Urban Decay limited-edition makeup, with eyeshadow and five shades of lipstick. Fans using the hashtag from the event also have a chance to win prizes.

A limited number of Alice Through The Looking Glass mini-posters were also available from digital artist Andy Fairhurst.

Check out the pop-up at 277 Queen Street West in Toronto until May 27th, every day from 11:00 AM to 7:00 PM, and use the hashtag #AliceOnQueen to join the conversation.

Watch my interview with Yolanda Gampp as she talks about making the cakes and bringing the iconic party table to life.
