Every year we have a children's day.  One of the highlights is a play which usually is based on a film from Walt Disney.  This year we did Alice in Wonderland.  There is a friend and myself that does the costumes each year.  This year I asked for helphere and it wasn't slow in coming.  Thank you Craftster and everyone that helped. A special thanks to the wonderful member that sent me the patterns for the Tweedle's, Alice and the Queen.  It is all non profit and we all donate our time and skills in order to give the kids a special day all of their own.
Nuf' babblin' and on to the pictures.  All of the patterns we used were altered to our needs.
This is Alice (costume made with Simplicity pattern 2785

I love this picture.  This is a pratice run for Alice "falling" into the hole.

I think the rest are self explanatory.  If anyone has any questions please ask.  And again, Thank you all!!!

And finally:

I hope this gives inspiration as you've given to me.

Awesome. I hate to say it, but I have never read that book.

I have a split personality, because you guys crack me up.  AND The best day I ever had was TODAY!

Thanks alot.
 lovesclutter :  I couldn't remember the book or the film.  They had to bring the movie to me to watch again.  It was crazy trying to watch when it was still in the secret stage.
elucidation :  Yes, it was loads of fun.  Lots of stress but loads of fun as well.  This year we only had 19 costumes to fit out.  We try to "recycle" the costumes from previous performances as well as find as much as possible without buying.  Just trying to keep the cost down.
Do y'all think anyone will recognize my table cloth?  Or my bed sheet?  Well, maybe someone will recognize my Moms old slip that the white rabbit has around his neck in one of the scenes. lol.
I'm just sorry that I don't know how to take better pictures.  Thank you for your comments.

Awesome. I hate to say it, but I have never read that book.

the Walt Disney Co. film is MUCH different than the book, and all the characters posted here are representative of the WDC film

i love that you guys do this for this kids, and all the costumes look like you put that love into them...great job

i think im back....9 months almost to the day but i miss art, and i missed you guys!

Thank you for your comments!!!
MissDisney, you are so right.  The Disney version is very child friendly.  (For want of a better phrase.lol)  When I heard the name of the play this year I went and took a look at my book..lol it was printed in 1948 and I knew that I couldn't use that so they arranged to bring me the film so I could "brush up" my memory.
This is a tradition (children's day) that has been going on for now for over 60 years and we are really trying to keep it going and there have been some serious "bumps" along the way.  I love being a part of it!!!
Of course we don't do the exact thing from the movies, just the cutesy style.
I forgot to post a picture of The Twiddles with a special thanks to the Craftster member that sent the patterns.  Bless her!!!

And because I love the way this guy love to "ham" it up when he came to try it on:

These were made with  Simplicity pattern 2785

That is so funny.  The "Queen" here is actually the "Kings" real Mom and when she got carried away at rehearsals and kept saying "Off with her head", her soon said "Mom, stop already"  which cracked us up for so many reasons...esp. since Mom isn't written in the play. lol
