Pink Alice dress

Urusei Yatsura

Last Updated: 07-10-2012

Working on this for another member of our UY group. I went with a theme of toadstools for the outfit. Like Ran, they're cute but totally poisonous, and if you know the character they suit her completely.

The dress is kind of a hybrid of several different dresses of Ran's. Plain pink seemed a little boring, so I went with a simple gingham for a bit of visual interest. The pattern is based off Simplicity's Alice costume with some alterations. I made the bodice a little looser and added a built-in petticoat and ruffle on the cuffs.

The apron follows a commercial pattern more closely than usual for me, almost no alterations whatsoever. I added double rows of pink and red rick-rack/baby rick-rack to the skirt and bodice. I'll also be adding pockets with pink/red toadstool patches, and matching buttons. The buttons were super-hard to find and had to be ordered from Thailand, but they're exactly what I wanted!

The wig is a Holly in Shadow Red from the cos.com store. Ran's dark raspberry color was too hard to find--everything was too bright of a pink--and I decided burgundy would photograph better. I added extra body by pulling the curls apart, then recurling, making it super fluffy.

My model will be returning to the area soon, so hopefully we can get our group together again in a month or so. I'm looking forward to getting more pictures!
