Lewis Carroll’s Alice from Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass is easily one of my favourite characters. Her lovely curiosity and witty humour have given us some beautiful quotes, albeit cryptic ones!
“But it’s no use going back to yesterday , because I was a different person then.”
Lots of different looks for Alice!
She also has some great costumes which can be highly versatile. Alice’s costume can be sweet or sassy and looks great on everyone. She is instantly recognisable in her blue dress with black accents and white apron. The perfect costume for Book Week!
Alice can also carry props like a toy clock or stuffed white rabbit – maybe even a real white rabbit if you happen to have one handy! Today I’m posting some of our Alice costumes, just because I’m in an Alice sort of mood – curious and curiouser!
Just by keeping some simple elements there are a number of different looks that Alice can easily adapt too! Your base of your costume is a relatively simple blue dress in a nice clear light blue……..
Add a matching white apron or pinafore, maybe some flouncy blue petticoats?
Add a long blonde wig, black headband and black accents……
Or go the easy way and purchase one of the huge variety of commercially available Alice’s:
One of our popular sellers is below – easy peasy stretchy Alice dress with built in petticoats, apron, ribbon headband…………don’t forget the stripey stay ups!
Tone it down for Book Week and up for a Wonderland inspired party – Alice is a great, go-too costume. Best of all, you get to run around quoting Alice-isms all night!
“I knew who I was this morning, but I’ve changed a few times since then.” Alice in Wonderland – Lewis Carroll
