Alice's Default Dress from Alice Madness Returns
I recently attended a con where I wanted to dress up. I chose Mad Alice from American McGee's Alice Madness Returns. I have always been a huge Alice in Wonderland fan and given my Gothic tendencies, what else would be more perfect then an unhinged Alice.
I created pretty much everything from scratch. There are some things I would definitely tweak to wear it again but it definitely did it's job on the day I wore it.
I didn't use a pattern, exactly. The one I found needed way too much math to alter to my size so I just winged it, so to speak. Traced a tank top I owned. Made a circle skirt (which I knew how to make from a 50s dress I made eons ago). Sewed the two together. Used the sleeve pattern from the pattern I bought (since it didn't need to be altered). Added eyelet trim to the bottom of the dress. Sewed up apron with a removable bow. Finished off with a black wig, petticoat, striped tights, boots and a prop cleaver.
I used a fabric medium with the Red and Black Acrylic paint for the pocket symbols and blood splatter, instead of actual fabric paint because I was using what I had on hand to keep costs down.
I made the Omega Necklace and Skull head out of air dry clay, which I then painted up and sealed with varnish. Next time I think I am going to use something more durable. Was working with what I had at the time. They both made it through the day, at least.
All in all I think it turned out pretty well. People knew who I was so I would call that a success :D
I am really wanting to make the steampunk outfit she wears next.
