|Cost :||Around £80|
|Time Taken :||Three Weeks|
|Originally as part of a Pandora Hearts group which appears to have fallen through, now I just love the character and want to cosplay her often.|
This costume was both fun, and a nightmare to work on! Mainly because in every reference picture and episode the design seemed to be different, so it was difficult making this accurate. I hope I've done a good enough job XD

Almost There! (Posted 27th May 2012)
I've nearly finished Alice! yayaya!
So yeah, as soon as they're dry they can be painted gold and then I'm pretty sure that's everything done! (well... minus the sycthe, but I don't count props towards the actual costume, and she rarely has it anyway XD)
I made a few adjustments and added a few things since my detailed image, but I'm not going to show you guys yet :P that was your last proper peek at it until the meet.
I'm so excited to wear this costume!

Coat Finished! (Posted 21st May 2012)
I finally finished the coat!
Other than that I need to finish the scythe of course, which may take time, and quickly modify the boots once I have some more materials.
I love this costume so much, I can't wait to wear it and get proper photos!
EDIT: I've decided to go all out on this costume, I don't want to miss a single detail, so I'll be editing parts of the costume slightly. These are things people probably wont notice, but I want it as accurate as possible, so I'm doing it. If you notice anything that looks a little off, please, please tell me!
Coat Test & Wig (Posted 11th May 2012)
I seem to do nothing on this costume for ages and then tons all at once!
The fabric I plan to use is expensive, so I really wanted to test my patterns out on something cheap first, and I'm glad I did, since I need a meter extra than I originally planned for.
So, I've ordered the fabric now, and uploaded some pics of the mock-up. It's very messy and only pinned together, not sewn, but I'm surprised at how easy it was to put together. I had the idea that it would be a lot trickier.
I also modified the gloves I bought, and styled/trimmed the wig (unfortunately after I'd taken photos!), just waiting for fabric and boots now!

Bow and Scythe (Posted 3rd May 2012)
It's been a relatively productive day today.
So I made by bow, which turned out pretty well, and I got started on my scythe too. There's still a long way to go with that, but so far so good.
I'm planning to build on the scythe (both blade, and handle) with expanding foam, which I'll carve into shape before papier macheing it and painting.
