Looking pretty good so far! Also, I think your normal hair (as seen here, at least) would work quite nicely for Alice. Sometimes, there are just those cosplays where your hair's there before you start. Anyhoo, good work. :D

@Origin Thank you! Ah, I'm glad that it suits. I know that the original Alice from the first game has brown hair, but this version is more black. I will keep using my normal hair until I buy a wig (if I even end up buying one~) :)

Old Pics and New~ (Posted 4th December 2014)

Just as the title says, here is a small collection of old and new WIP pictures :)

Almost there~ :) (Posted 4th October 2014)

So, I have attacked the lace onto the bottom of the dress... though I misjudged the width of the it and so 1.5 meters of the lace only covered half! >.<
I may return to get another 1.5 at some point but I can't for a while. Because of this I have done the front of the dress and made it look like it is disappearing back. It shouldn't be too noticeable that the back is not done.

The apron is almost done! I have finished the pockets and fake blood splatters~ Next I need to put large stitches down the ties and around the pockets.

The bow has metal now in both sides, funfun~ It stands nicely now instead of droops unseen.

The skull has been painted~ Not the best but it shall do for now.

Lastly, the Vorpal Blade. I was rushed for time before the expo and whereas the smaller things above could go un-noticed, I reeeaallly wanted my blade to be done. It wasn't :'D
I know that the handle is the wrong shape, but I cannot file it down as it is hollow and I cannot put clay onto it as then it would be far too big. I just had to keep it as it is. I don't think it will make much of a difference as it will be covered by my hand when held.
All that is left to do is the detail on the blade :)

Another Small Update (Posted 4th November 2013)

Unable to attend any of the 2013 Expos :'(

I have splattered the dress with red paint for blood, mixed with a small amount of black for a darker red. Though I does not come out too well on the main skirt. Bugger.

I have worn it once at a costume party and it seemed to go well.

Still not sure if I should buy the wig or not...

My mum is planning on having a Alice in Wonderland themed wedding and has told me that she wants everyone to dress up as the characters. Does not matter the version, in fact she really wants me to wear this cosplay to the wedding! She even said she would pay for the rest of the costume.

That includes: Wig, Blade, Necklace and Boots. Maybe contacts.

She also said that we can go to the 2014 London Expo in May, a month or so before the wedding, so my costume should be complete!

(As you can see in my picture, this is the progress so far! Dress and Apron. No Symbols yet and no blood on the apron until I have the symbols and pockets on. Temporary contacts worn.)

Update (Posted 17th November 2012)

Just an update if anyone is interested.

I was not able to got to the 2012 expo's so not much progress was made with Alice for a long time. But I am aiming to complete her before the next May Expo!

I am wondering if I should but a wig or not for her. When I decided to dye my hair from red back to brown, I chose a darker brown for when I did Alice... but that darker brown did not come out very dark because of the red, and especially now since the red has come through slightly...

I have the right length and style (If I change the position of my bangs) but I have lighter brown hair... what do you think?

Another thing... contacts or no contacts? I will decide nearer the time.

The apron is going well. Only the pockets, symbols and such to go.
