The Red Queen - Alice's Wonderland by FireLilyCosplay The Red Queen - Alice's Wonderland by FireLilyCosplay
Costume made and modeled by: :iconfirelilycosplay:

Photographer: :iconmindfall:


The Red Queen (based on an illustration by CrimsonCobwebs from DeviantArt). Photo by Elysiam Entertainment at Otakon 2012.

I had to alter this costume somewhat to get the correct proportions and to accommodate fabric. I found a lovely burgundy taffeta embroidered with red swirls, but when I received the fabric order, the red swirls were the same color as the fabric. In order to remedy this, there are over 19,000 rhinestones hand-glued onto this costume!! All the red swirls = Rhinestones!

I made the corset using a French 1700s style pattern from Simplicity to get the correct silhouette. The dress is a mish-mash of styles in keeping with the illustration. I opted for a mini skirt (to save myself from a never-ending bout of rhinestone gluing) over a petticoat with a bustled train on the back. I added white thigh high stockings with maroon and white heart ribbon garters, and 5 inch red velvet heels with ruffles and heart ribbon closure.

I do have the beaded heart thingie on the back of my hair as a barrette, but opted for a heart topped crown for the front - it seemed more appropriate for the direction I took with the costume. I also have hearts on my fingernails!

I absolutely LOVE this costume and can't wait to wear her again!! Many thanks to CrimsonCobwebs for the inspiration - I just adore your picture.

Totally deserved! Thank god the camera is high res since your costume is so freaking detailed from the pattern on your dress to the ruffles on your shoes.

Speaking of shoes I'm still the size of a bug and it isn't too fun, so if you would be so kind... :P
