|I saw the character design and instantly I fell in love with it -^^- I kinda wanna aim to get this outfit on its way before this Oct's expo or something but still kinda unsure... ^^; The hardest part of the outfit I think is outta the way kinda... but I have loads more I need to work on before completing this outfit... two months.. clock's ticking away... GAMBATTE!!! XD|
Success! I managed to get it finished before the dead line -^^- I finally wore my outfit and I've never been so pleased with it ^^ .. admittedly it was the most surprisingly difficult and most tedious outfit I had to make to date but after all that, I am glad to have walked round as Alice for the day -^^-
Got the photos! Hell yeah! Even though some people did questionably stare at me when walking passed a church dressed in cosplay when it was spitting rain... ^^;;
Since she's finally got an account now I can reveal my lovely wig stylist and photographer is xXSylentiumxX Thank you very much lovely -^^-

Boot covers v2 (Posted 30th October 2010)
two nights before the expo, I reworked the boot covers as I felt the other ones were horrible, flat and made my feet huge >.< instead of using a black boot with a white cover, I decided to make 4, yes 4 boot covers..
Wig styling complete me thinks ... (Posted 13th October 2010)
Cos I am cheap, I didn't wanna get the actually wig for Alice so I stuck with this long straight one - It took cutting, razoring, loads of hair spray, hair wax and a pair of straighteners to make the ends stand....
A semi failed(?) attempt... (Posted 9th September 2010)
So I spent the whole day making my first EVER pair of boot covers as this was the cheapest alternative to getting Alice's boots as I am poor ^^;;; It wasn't perfect but I think I can get by them for now... Still need to wait for the wig to arrive now which I have to style ^^;;; I'm totally scared! >.<
VICTORY!!!!!! (Posted 5th September 2010)
OK maybe not just yet... the next thing to take care of are the boots... seeing as how I'm a bit poor I can't really afford to buy her custom shoes ... so either instead planning to make boot covers or cheat and buy some ready made... not sure how they'll go but I'll try my best! =b
BLOODY COAT VICTORY!!!!! .. almost ... XD (Posted 1st September 2010)
Finally!!! the coat was by far the toughest thing I've made to date - triangle gather, symmetrical diamonds, length problems .... it was a pain in the ass that almost defeated me ¬¬ however I can't quite celebrate just yet as I still gotta do some hand sewing... the front panel still needs to be attached to the coat with some fasteners which I need to go out to get - then afterward need to sew some buttons on the cuffs (6 altogether) and on the coat (10) ... *sigh* still a long way to go ~.~
ARGH!! >.< (Posted 5th August 2010)
Been procrastinating for days on this outfit - main reason - The triangles for this coat is giving me such a head ache...¬¬ so far I've cut out the pattern pieces and is in the midst of testing them... hope this goes well... gambatte!
Boots.... ¬¬ (Posted 26th June 2010)
I soo badly wanna get this cosplay on its way... but unfortunetly - the boots are giving me problems ... I'm unsure whether to get a fairly cheap pair and hack them apart myself ... or get a custom made pair specifically for Alice... so much money ... -_- ... ARGH!! >.<
