Alice Liddell is dead and Wonderland is still reeling from a revolution that spanned the entire kingdom. A new King sits upon the throne - Jack, the former Knave of Hearts and once prince and revolution leader, is learning to cope with his new position as monarch of Wonderland. The tests to find new Alices in hopes of restoring Wonderland's magic continue as her inhabitants slowly pieces her back together. Yet questions still linger: where are the old King and his Queen? And how long can the vast array of Wonderlanders keep themselves hidden from the rest of London during their increasingly frequent trips to the city so far beyond the looking glass? Welcome to Far Beyond The Looking Glass, a present day rp based on the characters from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There. It is currently Autumn 2014 in London, England, and Wonderland is currently experiencing an autumn-like season, too. Have a look around and don't be afraid to pop in the cbox if you have a question as we're quite a friendly bunch. We hope you decide to join and welcome!

Clothing in our version of Wonderland is very much inspired by Medieval fashion- which you can read some about here. Modern clothing will only be found on those who originally came from London and have yet to adapt to Wonderland's style, or those who've visited London and returned wearing it's fashion. Traditionally, all Wonderlanders will dress as stated in this section, especially in Court. Below are some links to Medieval fashion to help inspire your choices with your Wonderland characters, as well as some FBTLG specific designs cooked up quickly on templates by myself.
Think 'Game Of Thrones'.
some womens clothing
more womens clothing
a mans outfit, likely just above lower class
male lower class
female lower class
male medium class
Again, as with everything to do with our version of Wonderland here on FBTLG- think Medieval. Instruments are usually harps, lutes, organs, flutes, drums and the like. Pieces of music similar to greensleeves and even songs similar to the bear and the maiden fair and other songs sang in GOT are typically played. You'll find no slipknot or lady gaga here!
The court is always resided over by the King, with their counsellors at their side and a jury of the condemned's peers. In contrast to the previous court, the jury and counsellors take more part in today's trials- as Jack prefers the concept of a fair trial, like his Uncle before him.
- Beheading (under the new rule, reserved only for the most brutal and heinous of crimes. typically the guillotine, though an axe or sword can also be used)
- Rubies (highest form of currency, typically only upper class / monarchy)
Wonderlanders fight with swords, warhammers and the like. Guns are not native to Wonderland (though they do have the capability to design them with the Dodo's innovative mind) and they generally look down on the use of them as being dishonorable. It is one of the main reasons why many Wonderlanders look down on humans and their cowardly ways in battle (i.e. using guns and bombs and grenades)
There are hospitals in Wonderland, though they're not nearly as equipped as those in London. Again, think medieval. They're more the large houses of Doctors than hospitals, with around two Doctors in each town and perhaps one per village, though some villages are known not to have a Doctor, and need to send a rider to the next village. Their methods are rudimentary at best and yes, they do still use potions and herbs and leeches and the like for things. The Monarchy have their own personal men of medicine within the Palace, and these are, of course, the best in the land.
