Cheshire Cat T-shirt
“We’re all mad here.” In Alice in Wonderland, the Cheshire Cat says this to Alice when, in the woods, she asks the cat where she ought to go, and what sort of people live in the different directions. The cat says the Hatter lives in one direction, while the March Hare lives in another. (Alice ends up meeting both of them — and the Dormouse — at the tea party.) The cat says they’re both mad. Not only them, but the cat says it’s mad, and that Alice is mad, too. This Cheshire Cat t-shirt features the cat’s bit of knowledge so you, too, can share it with the world. You can see it here at my Zazzle store.

If you would like just the Cheshire Cat face on a shirt by itself, there are a couple of options: a sinister grin and a silly smile.

Lewis Carroll created several memorable characters in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. How could we forget the Cheshire Cat and its trick of gradually disappearing? Or the White Rabbit worrying about being late? Or the hookah-smoking Caterpillar on top of a mushroom? Or the Hatter hosting his goofy tea party? Or the Queen of Hearts constantly screaming, “Off with her head!”? Great characters.
