Alice Liddell Cosplay

Category: Video Game

Completed: 100%

Cost: $ US250

Hours to Make: 40-60

First worn at: A-kon 23

Inspiration: My brother's girlfriend Ashley wanted something really awesome for her first cosplay, and she adored the Alice Madness Returns game, so she picked the Steamdress as her first costume. I cut out all the pattern pieces and did a little sewing, she did the majority of it though so that she could learn to sew. My brother made her Hobby Horse.

Favorite Aspect: My favorite part would be the part I didn't do, the Hobby Horse. I did cut the vinyl pieces to make the bridle, but that's it. Really though, the whole costume is pretty spectacular. You can't see it, but the corset is lined with a really cool antique-looking fabric.

Least Favorite Aspect: The collar. Not because of how it looks, but because when she sweats wearing it, it turns an odd color and we have to replace it.

Easiest Task: The corset and apron. The corset is a basic waist cincher that we modified for the way it needed to close and it's simple to make. The apron is permanently attached to the corset and is backed in the suede that the straps are made of.

Hardest Task: All those little straps. We had to stitch the all and then turn them. They gave us a headache because there were so many of them. Overall the costume wasn't hard to make as it was time consuming.
