Okay so since halloween is just around the corner, I've been trying to figure out what my I'm going to dress up as (I don't care that I'm an adult, I'm still dressing up :D ). My good friend who I'm going to be with on all hallow's eve is dressing up as Alice from Alice In Wonderland so I want to be either the Cheshire Cat or the Queen Of Hearts.

The Cheshire Cat would be a simple costume to sew and wouldn't have much to it, but for one thing finding similar fabric where I live will be extremely hard and I know for a fact that last year it seemed like every young lady was dressed as a cat so I don't want to be a "copy-cat" (pun unintened :p )

The Queen Of Hearts would be an awesome characture to act out but I'm just worried that the costume itself will be difficult to come up with without spending a lot of money.

Anyways, that's my delema and would love for people to shoot out their opinons and help me decide what I should do :D

Thanks!
Kate

I would say to do the Queen of Hearts, just seems cooler.

How about being Malice in wonderland, her evil doppelganger . You could copy the costume idea's or buy one of the costumes from the links below, also I've added a link to an illustration of the Dark Alice.

Love this idea though.

Are you looking for a not wearing so much type costume or are you trying to be true to the character as much as possible? Right there would knock out a lot of the costumes posted.

Thanks for the replies everyone! I'm planning on doing either the Cheshire Cat or Queen of Hearts costume but with a twist...not too "adult-like" if you get my drift, but definatly not like the orginal.

If I go with the Cheshire Cat, I'm going to most likely sew the costume and it will look extremely similar to this:

(but the skirt part will be a tad longer)

If I go with the Queen's costume, I'll probably sew most of it and it will look like this:

(without the tattered bottom of the dress)

So there are my choices and like I said I will most likely be sewing most or all of the costume myself with whichever one I do.

So what do you all think? Which one do you all like more or think is more associated with Alice?

Thanks again!
Kate

I like the cat idea the best. I think that you could order material on line if it is not available in you area in a fake fur paturn.

Now I really like the Cheshire Cat version better, thanks for that image.

Honestly, either one could be associated with Alice. I also just thought up doing the Mad Hatter, a cute girl in a top hat is always a plus :D

I did McGee's Alice 3 Halloweens ago and it was pretty awesome in the end.



Good luck with the decision making. I'm already having too many ideas in mind.
