Alice, at last...

By Verdaera
**Please Note: This is NOT Cosplay. I am a Costumer, not a Cosplayer. Thank you for your understanding.**

Here is my completed Alice costume, from the new Tim Burton version of Alice in Wonderland. It is entirely hand-made, including the lace and the embroidered hem (which took me 7 months to hand embroider) I do want to add another petticoat for floof and get a proper wig, but it's essentially done.

For more detailed shots of the individual pieces, please see my gallery.

Taken at Archon, October 2nd. This costume won Best in the Journeyman category for Workmanship!

At Dragon*Con in Sept. 2010, I also received an Honorable Mention in the Friday Night costuming contest, Best Workmanship In Show for the Young Adult Lit. costume contest, and Best Disney Character in the Hall Costume Contest!

Beautifully done. I'm even more impressed with your workmanship on this dress now that I've seen the official costume in store. I had to try it on since I adore the style, but was saddened to see the seems already were ripping when I took it out of the bag. Congrats on the awards, your dress is worth them!

Very lovely :heart:

Your hard work shows and your accolades are well deserved. I'd ask you to marry me, but well, I'm already married, and you're young enough to be my daughter. But someday soon you will make some lucky young man very happy.
