How to Be The Queen Of Hearts
Ideas, Tips & Tricks
"The Queen of Hearts, she made some tarts..." or not. Those infamous tarts, and their theft by the Knave, are fodder for one of the most famous episodes in Alice in Wonderland. The Knave goes on trial, and the Queen gets to use her signature catch phrase, "Off with his head!" If you're going to become the Queen of Hearts, you can re-enact that scene, or the royal croquet game, or simply go around with the King of Hearts or the Mad Hatter ordering people to be beheaded. You can be a Disney-esque queen, or you can be the evil martinet of Tim Burton's Underland. Your choice. Our hints and tips below will help you bring Wonderland – or Underland – to life. You'll know what to say and how to pose, like the playing-card royalty you are!
