Alice in Wonderland Wedding Dress

Alice Wedding Dress 1

I have always dreamed of the idea of doing an Alice in Wonderland wedding, but as much as I would love an Alice in Wonderland wedding gown…. I probably wouldn’t go full on themed dress for my actual wedding. That said, I kept dreaming of what that dress would look like… crisp white silks, flowing teal organza, and somewhere… stripes.

This costume was actually a fun challenge, since I wanted to have a huge flowing skirt, but not spend a fortune on fabric, since it takes a lot of tule or organza to really give it the volume I was looking for. This would require a hoop skirt, and the hoop needs to be hidden by more than just a tulle tutu. THIS was the perfect project to try something different with my new sewing machine. Also, a great time to try being a blonde 😉

Ultimately, I LOVED how it turned out! I wasn’t confident enough to try sewing the corset piece, so I went with a purchased one, which I ended up having to resize anyway (and broke my first needle *tears*). I played around with the idea of doing different accents, but once I got the base of it finished, I loved it so much I didn’t want to change a thing.

It also looks pretty sharp without the hoop skirt! Definitely a big difference in volume. And considering just how hot it was outside, the hoop skirt was a welcome relief from the warmth underneath the skirt.

Speaking of under the skirt… I love these stripes! Keeping them hidden allows the dress to be elegant and classy, but exposing the tights brings in a fun flair with a nod to the Alice in Wonderland wedding theme.Alice Wedding Dress 12

Hello!

Hi! I'm Alyce.
Welcome to my journey towards living a happier and healthier life while living with PTSD and chronic pain... and never letting it keep me from my passion for Halloween, cooking, and way too many DIY projects... all at the same time!

  • One last look at this (insightful? Revealing?) makeup! I actually really loved the eyes by themselves, and they took a good 2 hours themselves. A good challenge in trying to make a flat art of round objects translated on a curved surface! #eyeseeyou #eyeball #eyes #makeupartist #inspiredbyart
Inspire by art by @xsullo
  • Eye see you! I also understand I’m not funny, it’s ok. 😂
This was actually a fun challenge, eyes are really complex and took nearly 2 hours to get them where I was happy. Of all of this, I’m really proud of the detail I was able to get in the irises of each eye, and my blocked eyebrow almost completely disappeared! This actually looks amazing compared to the first time I blocked them out. Yay for progress! #eyeseeyou #eyeball #horrormakeup #horrorart 
Inspired by art from @xsullo
  • I love finding inspiration in new places, and when @bearded_horror shared artwork by @xsullo a week or so ago, I knew I had to give it a try as a makeup! Seriously, such amazing art. I hope I did it justice! Check out their profile to see even more incredible works and compare to the original.
  • After this photoshoot im not sure how to go back to my plain black background... I mean if there isn’t ominous fog in the background, does it really even count?!?! #fogmachine #clownmakeup #scareactress #hauntlife #evietheclown
  • This is my level of excitement right now! The love I have gotten for Evie over the past few days have been amazing, thank you all so much! #clown #clownmakeup #clowns #hauntlife #scareactress
  • That’s not a Wiley grin, that’s me clamping my teeth together so I stopped chattering. This spring was BRUTAL in SD, and it was in the 30s when we shot this in an unheated parking garage. #clowningaround #clownmakeup #scareactor #scareactress #hauntlife
  • Evie is probably my favorite full-costume character I’ve created to date. It’s so fun to think a practice look I made for haunt last year will be a fully fledged character come haunt season next year! Also, I NEED these light bars @jibclimmer used in this shoot. If anyone has a few hundred dollars to donate to the cause just let me know. 😉 #clown #clownmakeup #hauntedhouse #hauntlife #makeupartist
  • If only @grave_digger_the_clown would learn to share, Evie wouldn’t have to steal his shovel! #justclowningaround #clown #clownmakeup #hauntlife photography credit goes to the incredibly talented @jibclimmer
  • Hey guys! It’s been a hell of last few months, but trust me, I’ve been busy! I’d like to introduce my newest character, Evie the Clown! Thanks so much to @jibclimmer for these incredible photos... more to come very shortly. #clown #clownmakeup #hauntlife
