I threw some fabric at my sewing machine and made this a thing! ...Okay, maybe that's a little be of an exaggeration. It's more like, a little while back I had the urge to make something and realized I had all the material for an Alice: Madness Returns dress.
I have always had a crazy obsession with anything Alice in Wonderland related and also with things that are twisted and macabre, so this game was just right up my ally. I really don't have adequate words to describe how much I loved the messed up style it has. There may be more of Alice's dresses in my future.
So anyway I hopped on down a wooded area nearby with my wonderful photographer friend and got eaten be mosquitoes for some awesome shots.

This is my second costume from the videogame Alice: Madness Returns, made after a year from the previous (the first was Alice Fleshmaiden, there are some pictures in my gallery). The dress wasn't so hard to make, the most difficult part was the horse, that I've sculpted from a piece of polyurethane. Also the rod with the horse can be split into three pieces, I designed it this way because I needed to carry the costume in a suitcase.
Just a few more details and it's done! Attaching the skull to the bow, putting the bow into place with wire. The poofs of the sleeves are already and the 2 pockets are already on it, just not in this picture Yay
