The making of: Alice Misstitched dress from Alice: Madness Returns

I made this dress some months ago but never posted the progress all together before. ^^ It was so much work but I’m still very happy with this costume. ♥

Q: Do you have a favorite Arda Wig style and/or color?
A: I wear Arda Wigs, almost exclusively, in recent year for all of my costumes. The variety of colors and workable styles make my job much easier. My most purchased style is Claudia, the wig has a lot of bounce and fullness, and is a perfect choice for any character that needs tight, ringlet curls (out of the bag) or soft waves (from light brushing). To get extra oomph, I will stack two Claudia wigs together to create extra volume and bounce. And, because I have a huge affinity for white hair, my favorite color is Titanium Blonde. It is the perfect combination of milky white and bleached blonde.
