(If you didn’t see it, here’s the backstory to this series)
Costume two was also another easy one, costing me zero dollars.
I used Disney’s Alice in Wonderland as my inspiration, wearing the ubiquitous Rodarte for Target dress, the same shoes and tights as the Morton Salt Girl costume.
Alice in Wonderland is a great costume, because it’s very recognizable, without being over-the-top.
You will need:
Black shoes, preferably mary janes
Black headband or ribbon
Stuffed cat or white rabbit (depending if you want Dinah or the White Rabbit)
If you want to wear a white apron, but don’t have one, try using a white pillow case, pinned over a thick ribbon and tied around your waist (I would’ve demonstrated, but I don’t own any white sheets. Go figure.)
Dress: Rodarte for Target
Tights: Betsey Johnson
Flats: Charlotte Russe
Headband: Black ribbon
Stuffed cat: Gift in middle school, stand-in for Dinah
There is a lot of interpretation you can do with this look. If you prefer to dress as Alice from the Syfy mini series, trade the white tights for maroon/red/orange tights, the black mary janes for brown ankle boots and wear a long purple jacket over the dress.
Next week, Ke$ha and Twiggy…
