I am beyond ecstatic about how this all turned out. I wanted to do this theme forever.
This dress was a B****. I couldn't find a pattern in her size (child's size 10) then I couldn't find the right colored material. She is a crazy about attention to detail.
So I decided to recycle a old formal dress.
Here's the catch, it was a Women's size 8. I broke out the seam ripper and got to work. After I butchered the bodice I finally got it to fit her properly, she is only 10, so I had to take it in a ton.
Then the length, then I removed the sleeves and took the salvage from the bottom to make the "Puffy" sleeves.
The apron was easy that was just some white fabric I had.
The horse she necklace and the skull were made from polymer clay.
My old combat boots, a knife from the kitchen (I ordered a fake one, it's not here yet), and the bunny I made for the costume.






The original dress:
Here's a pic of the action figures:

Well done! I like how you decorated your house in keeping with the theme--it makes for a great photo shirt. Your daughter (?) is perfect for the role, her expressions are spot on.

Wow, this is awesome.  I'm unfamiliar with the figurines/story.  Is it a book, movie, tv show, etc.?

This has to be my favorite costume I've ever made for her!

Oh, how I love this costume.  I have been working on something on a smaller scale for my furry ones in the house for next year.

I remember your mad hatter from a while back and then I see your entire house and your daughter are American Mcgee themed!  I would like to come live with you now  Cheesy.  Great job on the dress, I love the skull on the back.
