Using an Alice in Wonderland dress is one of the most classic costume you can choose. Believe it or not, the original novel written by Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, AKA Lewis Carroll, is from back in 1865. And it is still getting new version and adaptation for the current generations.
As we all know, Alice’s Adventure in Wonderland tells the story of a young girl whose curiosity lead her to fall through a huge hole and into the Wonderland. A fantastical place filled with odd people and weird creatures that look as if they’re taken straight out of your wildest dreams.
This book is considered one of the best, if not the best, example of the literary nonsense genre. Not only this, but it is also one of the most popular stories among people of all ages, from the youngest to the oldest.
The novel became so popular that it could not be contained in just a book. Alice in Wonderland is without one of the most influential written pieces in our modern culture. It has inspired musicals, movies -both live-action and animated-, TV shows, video games, comics and pretty much anything you can think of. Even Salvador Dalí painted 13 pieces based on Alice in Wonderland

4. Cos2be Costume For Alice: Madness Returns, Alice in Wonderland dress
While this may be a long stretch, specially coming from the one meant for children, we also have this. Alice: Madness Returns is a psychological horror action-adventure video game. Remember when I mentioned that the novel has inspired many to create new content based on it? Well this is one of those examples.
Alice: Madness Returns is the sequel to American McGee’s Alice. These are incredibly odd interpretations of basically how would a gory, creepy and an over all not-so-Wonderland world. The game’s bizarre art and designs are also part of this alternate interpretation of Alice. Many people take it as “if Alice fell into a world made of dreams, there also has to be a world of nightmares”. And the game is a clear interpretation of the nightmare world
- Looks spot on to the game’s design
- Looks gory enough
- Doesn’t come with the bloodstains so you can chose to paint it or not
- It includes the zebra-print pantyhose
- You’ll stand out from other Alice’s
