Close your eyes… Go to Wonderland.
Pictureset of my Steam Alice from Alice: Madness Returns, that I wore at Connichi 2013! :D I was really happy to be doing a costume again that would really revive my sewing skills xD And it was such a joy to make and wear this costume, it’s one of the most comfortable costumes I’ve made in a long time, so it’s definitely on my favourites list! :D (Also psycho faces, I had so much fun xD)
I thought it’d be fun to do a costume breakdown for once, so here goes: The grey stripes were all sewn on individually (so much woooork aarghh) because I felt like in the game, it really looked as if the grey stripes were on top of the dress, with a shade inbetween them. So first I made the dress out of black linen and then added all the grey. :)
The corset is lined with linen and has steel boning for the shape. I destroyed a store bought clock to make the ‘wings’ on my back, but in the end the clock still worked :D (haha it really freaked people out xD) The wings and the Omega-dangle were made out of Worbla.
My dear Liza made the Vorpal Blade for me as a present, isn’t that sweet <3 Pictures by the amazing Octowana :D Thank you very much!<33
