|Time Taken :||6hours|
|Alice from Disney's Alice in Wonderland cartoon.|
About the Cosplay:
I basically had one night come up with an outfit for a fancy dress party, and I wanted to use my own hair (as I didn't want to go overboard as this wasn't cosplay related in the slightest) so I decided I'd go as Alice I love the film and love the story a ton (I prefer Mad Hatter but hey I didn't have time to argue with myself) anywhoo long story short, I made this in one night it took about 6hours to make from scratch; I made the dress from blue fabric I had bought for a different cosplay but changed my mind about doing (really glad I found a use for it ^_^) and the white tabbard was made from scraps of cotton drill I had lying around, the bow is an old belt type thing from a carigan I don't have anymore so I converted it into a bow head tie, the shoes are from my Rei Hino cosplay (luckily they're an identical design :D)
So a totally cost free cosplay :)
no tea party after all :( (Posted 13th June 2011)
Well it took about 6hours and the costume is ready to wear and now I've just found out the party is cancelled xD what a wasted effort I could have used that time for more important things like sleeping lol. Atleast I have another costume to add to my repatoir.
There's a few things I want to alter on it like the tabard isn't quite right so just need to touch it up and I also need to dye the dress darker (need to practice that before I go ahead and do it, as I haven't dyed anything [other than hair] before). I'll post up a few pictures of what it looks atm as soon as I'm home tomorrow.
I can't see me wearing this at an event as I never feel compfortable cosplaying really young characters as a. It feels a bit weird and b. I'm waaaay to tall to pull off a child xD. I will however endevour to get some lovely photos of this at a photoshoot at somepoint in te near future :).
