Description

Pieces Finished/Acquired:
Blue dress
White apron
White tights (thigh-high, Hot Topic)
Mary Janes
Black headband

After a week of trying to decide what my first cosplay would be, I enlisted the help of my mother. I had narrowed things down to either Lightning (FFXIII), Rikku (FFX), or Briar Rose (Disney's Sleeping Beauty). My mom piped up, "What about Alice?" Considering how quickly summer - and, thus, valuable sewing time - is slipping away and how inexperienced I am in the world of cosplay, I thought it was a good idea.

This costume is relatively simple, and I've decided, because it's my first go at cosplaying, that I'm not going to worry about 100% accuracy. I've also decided to use the animated film rather than the theme park character costume as a reference.

Blue dress: Simplicity pattern 4136, Dorothy Gale from The Wizard of Oz; blue broadcloath. I tweaked the sleeve bands but didn't worry about the collar.

White apron: Simplicity pattern 2626; white poplin.
