This year’s costume challenge for the Montreal Comic Con was Iracebeth the Red Queen Armour form Alice through the Looking Glass. I chose this version of the Red Queen because it was very different from the original design on Alice in Wonderland. It’s so elaborated and so detail, something I like as a challenge! And once again, Colleen Atwood made it. She is honestly one of my biggest inspirations and one of the most amazing designers out there. Her designs are so magical, so detailed, so perfect!!!!
I actually got the chance to finally make one of my favorite characters from this Alice in Wonderland film version and also got the chance to go with my amazing boyfriend as a couple (off course he is using his Mad Hatter, with some new items: Hat and bowtie that I will show you on a post soon!) and it was such an amazing experience.
I got to work with new things like the magical WORBLA, create a crazy beautiful wig, try bald caps, make shoes, and sew lots and lots of ribbons among other things…
So here is a quick recap of this amazing adventure: First thing I did was to research anything I could find about this beautiful and empowering costume. By the time I decided to make this costume they were not too many images available online but fortunately those few were in HD! so I got the chance to see all the details up close =)
Isn’t she amazing? Helena Bonham Carter is so perfect in this character!
Once I studied the pictures I broke down the costume into the following parts:
- Corset Armour
Since this costume have so many pieces I decide to write different posts to split the whole process and share it with you. I will tell you how I made the shoes, the wig and the entire costume!
For now, I would like to share a few shots of the Complete costume during the comic Con in Montreal this year, I hope you like it and hope to hear from all of you!
This is all for now guys! Hope you enjoy it and I’ll see you next time!
Check out my post on how I made the Boots of this crazy costume!!!!
