Alice In Wonderland Costume Ideas

In the studio’s new live-action movie of Alice in Wonderland, directed by Tim Burton, the character has grown up into a young woman of nineteen who believes that her adventures in Wonderland were a dream. So she does not believe that the land is real once she returns there with the help of the White Rabbit. Fortunately, she eventually comes to believe in Wonderland, just in time to save it from the reign of the evil Red Queen with the help of The Mad Hatter and her other friends. This year Johnny Depp and Mia Wasikowska reprised their memorable roles in Disney's newest movie sequel, Alice Through the Looking Glass, which was released on May 27th, 2016!

As portrayed by Mia Wasikowska, the character is an unconventional young woman who is struggling to find her place in the world. Through her adventures in Wonderland, she develops into an empowered and self-confident heroine who is able to reject the traditional roles Victorian society imposed on women in order to shape her own destiny. To reflect the character’s free-spirited nature, costume designer Colleen Atwood opted to outfit Wasikowska in a dress without the corsets or hoop skirts that women of the period commonly wore. The lack of constricting garments also helped the character move around more easily during the many physical scenes the movie required.

While Alice’s outfits are considered the most “normal” in the film, considering all the eccentric and colorful characters inhabiting Wonderland, young women who view Alice as a role model will still want to dress up in Halloween costumes inspired by her look in the film for the holiday’s many parties. The costume consists of a light blue dress with petticoats and matching fingerless gloves. It is available in small, medium and large adult sizes. However, it does not come with white shoes to complete the outfit; you will have to buy these separately.
