I missed a couple of days on the TSinktober train but ey, better now than never! If I have time a will do more of these. I just couldn’t resist the beautiful idea of @thatsthat24 to make a monster dress up as a Disney female. So here: a wearwolf dressed as Alice for day 4 of Inktober
Apparently, the Mad Hatter character from Alice in Wonderland is based on Erethism, also known as “Mad Hatter Disease”.
Hat making factories used to use mercury in order to stabilize the wool in the felt hats. Factory workers exposed to mercury fumes all day suffered from neurological diseases that caused psychosis and erratic behaviors, hence the nickname. It also led to the expression “as mad as a hatter”
