How to Make Alice in Wonderland Costume
Alice in Wonderland is a pretty simple costume and with the right instructions you can make one at your home, rather than buying the costume. So for those of you who like to make a costume the instructions and what you need are listed below:
##Items You will Need:##
– Blue dress or blue material
– White apron
– Black Mary Jane Shoes
– White panty hose
– Black ribbon
Step 1: The main part of the Alice in Wonderland costume is the light blue dress. If you already have a blue dress at home you can alter it to have the puffy sleeves and the slips below. If you don’t have the blue dress at home it is a pretty simple pattern to make. You can purchase a pattern or find one online that should help you create the old fashioned dress. The dress should also have a white lace collar.
Step 2: The white apron can either be simple or in the same fashion as the dress. The true apron would have ruffles around the shoulders and bodice, then hang simply. Tying the apron is what gives the dress the form it needs, so do not worry about making the dress too snug.
Step 3: This is where the accessories should be added. Alice in Wonderland is blonde, which means it is important for you to have the blond wig, usually a little longer than the shoulders. If you can find a wig that gives little ringlets that would be the best. The black ribbon should be tied around the wig in a bow on the top of the head.
Step 4: The white panty hose will offer warmth as well as complete the costume. The Mary Jane are typical shoes seen with the costume; however, they should be worn only if you do not have to worry about extremely cold weather.
