Alice in Wonderland - Scraps
This is my research and costume page for the Alice in Wonderland "Scraps" dress.  It's the dress she is wearing when she takes a ride on the Hatter's Hat to the Red Queen's palace (before becoming Um).

March 12 - Compiling my Research photos into one easy to see spot.  I already have the ribbons needed for the bodice/Shoes/Arm Wrap, as well as a decent lace for the skirt and bodice.  I just need the fabrics for the dress and the giant flower.  I'll also need a proper wig (because Alice is not a red head) and shoes for a base.

Alice's "Hatter's Ride" dress.  This is what I'm calling it since I'm not really sure what to call it officially.  Fairly simple in design, it will just be time consuming assembling the ribbons.

Silk Satin ribbons in Copen and Black.  The copen will be sewn to the black to create one piece for the bodice and shoes and arm wrap.

The underdress with the Point D'Esprit and lace pinned on.  I hadn't added the tulle under layer yet at this point.

Taken with Flash
The dress portion is done.  I sewed the two ribbons together to make one ribbon (about 11yds long) and it really needs to be a bit longer still, probably another 3-4 yards.  It's just wrapped in place at the moment.

Taken in Sunlight
Sames as the before photo, but the natural light looks a lot better.  Unfortunately for me, Dragon Con is made of people with flashes... so the color will look a little off in photos *grrr*

I'm wondering if the added tulle underlayer makes this look too poofy, and almost 50's in style.

The shoes before.  Simple ballet flats that were on sale and easy to cut up for Alice shoes.
The ribbons are a smaller version of the silk ribbons on the dress.  It took 4 yards of ribbons per shoe!

Hot Glue + Ribbon + Shoe = perfect match.

One shoe down!  You can see I removed the giant bow and cut out the toe area.

All done!  They are so cute and are probably my most comfy costume shoes yet lol.

I need a better wig cap to keep my natural hair flatter under the wig.
