Have you met the next big model?
Well, let me introduce you to her. Her name is Alice Lewis, and she is just nine. Alice loves cosplay and in front of the camera she carries her costumes with an exceptional ease.
Alice's personality and extraordinary imagination are reflected by her outfits. With the help of her mom, Alice transforms herself completely into iconic figures like Joan of Arc, Wonder Woman, Edward Scissorhands and many more!
She matches her costumes, props and makeup with perfection and when it gets combined with mom's impeccable photography skills, the portraits that are created simply unimaginable!
Kelly Lewis adopted Alice when she was just 7. She is proud of her daughter's way to explore herself.
On her Tumblr, Kelly Lewis writes, "Alice loves sharing her story so that others might get inspired to adopt a child, an older one at that. Reading another child's adoption story is what inspired us to foster-to-adopt in the first place. And while I don't introduce Alice as my 'adopted daughter' ... we don't keep it a secret about the place which she belongs. It's part of her identity, and I never want her to be ashamed of it. It's relevant to the portraits we create together because it's what we do to bond. We didn't have a natural maternal link—we created one the best way we knew how and it's stronger that I could have ever imagined."
