    'In Carroll’s original (1862-1864) manuscript for the story, Alice’s Adventures Underground, which he personally illustrated, Alice was not the little blonde girl in a pinafore we have come to know from subsequent illustrations.

    Instead, she was originally a winsome, dark haired child, whose likeness had been patterned after ten year old Alice Liddell, the child of a church colleague, for whom the Alice stories had been originally created.'


    in the story she is never described as blonde, and the author originally drew her with dark hair.

    When it came to be published the illustrator drew her with lighter hair

    and then Disney raped the book like always and made her blonde hair blue eyed to appeal to the American market.

    So yeah you made the quote up...
