Alice Madness Returns
Character: Checkmate Version Alice
When: Supanova Sydney 2012 Best Skit

Many thanks to Photographer: :iconbubisadrunk:who did a great job post processing too

Costume and edited by: :iconalita-b-angel:

I got talked into this costume by :iconarlo-arleh: even though I know almost nothing about the series, but in the end I was super proud of it. The corset was some of the hardest patterning I've ever done, if only because it meant getting the size of my torso absolutely correct as there was no one simple seam down the sides to take it in. It was made up of 36 different squares sewn together and also lined. The shoulder horses are made with a wire frame and paper mache with about 5 layers of spray paint and lacquer, and I put a great big hoola hoop in the skirt. I also stretched PVC over the boots to make it consistent. Everything was made to be super plasticy. For once my super shiny face isn't out of place lol.

Thanks so much to :iconqueencattabby; and :iconarlo-arleh: to joining me in organising this group, Particularly the waifu Arleh to banding us all together!
