Description
So this is finally finished and all in all it's not been a too stressful experience. The pattern was actually rather nice to work with and didn't cause me much stress. It was the machine itself that's made most of the mistakes with this but it hasn't be anything that couldn't be fixed!

My two sort of gripes with this are the skirt length, which personally I feel is too long, and the collar which I don't think is 'tight' enough to my neck like Alice's is in the artwork.

The shoes are a dream and were a steal from Primark and I was also over the moon with my petticoat. The thing is MASSIVE and it only cost me £25 which was a bargin! Wig was bought from Cosplay DNA on eBay, couldn't recommened them more. For once the wig needs no styling whatsoever, a dream compared to Yami!

The sock/stockings were the hardest thing to find and I've already had to buy a replacement pair as my others laddered like mad.

Overall I'm looking forward to wearing this so look out for me, hopefully someone will know what I'm from! :3

The wig you used for this is gorgeous! (Mind me asking where you got it from? :) )

The dress is just incredible and you look amazing as Alice :)

Wow thanks for all the fantastic comments guys!

@ CharlotteLuna I did actually buy some glowsticks after you suggested them but the whole thing went horrible wrong haha! I didn't have time to do them pre-con and when I got there the vile had actually broken. All that glue for nothing!

@ Mungojerrie Ah thank you ever so much! The wig is from CosplayDNA of eBay who I cannot recommend enough! It was £20 with p+p included and it can withstand low temp heat so it can actually be straightened and curled. They've got a massive selection and I really do plan to get every wig from them now on :3
