#Cosplay: Hysteria Alice Dress Remake

So, to blog about something that isn’t my deteriorating mental health: cosplay!

I didn’t think I was even going to start my Alice: Madness Returns cosplay this year… but as it is, it might even be finished before my Melkor/Morgoth costume! I was scouring my favorite thrift-store, when I came across a horrible wedding dress. Old fashioned cut, long sleeves, high collar, just one layer of relatively cheap fabric… the kind of dress that wouldn’t do a bad job in a kindergarten costume closet. But I looked at it, and I saw the makings of a dress for Hysteria Alice.

For those of you who don’t know anything of “American McGee’s Alice” and its sequel “Alice: Madness Returns”… this is the Hysteria costume.


I’m far from done, but I managed to roughly convert the previously described ugly wedding dress into something remotely resembling the basic Hysteria dress. See the transformation for yourself:

Dress Remake

The costume is far from finished (the apron, the skull bow, the petticoat, and the bloodstains still need to be added to the dress, not to mention that I still have some work on the sleeves) but I thought my progress was noteworthy enough to post about. I did everything by hand, and I’m not the best seamstress, but it came out better than I expected…

About quantumphysica

My name is QuantumPhysica The Insane, but you can call me QP. I am insane, admitted to a mental hospital in Belgium, and waiting for a decent diagnosis at the moment. Once I was a physics student with goals in life and what more; now I'm simply the patient of Room 93. Ever wondered what life is like in the psychiatric ward? I'll tell you everything you ever wanted to know... I am... particularly twitchy of personality. But I also am genuinely interested in everything. There is nothing that doesn't interest me, really. Everything, from quantum computers to fashion and cars to traveling... I also give advice. On anything. No taboos whatsoever. And I make lists of things...
