Alice in Wonderland Cosplay Ideas & Wig help!

My absolute definitive icon is Alice in Wonderland, so girlish, wide eye'd and innocent, yet brave and adventurous. She is always out of place (much like me) but still manages to make friends with all the "less then normal" life around her. She is refined and polite, yet she will stand up for herself when threatened.
I want to be Alice, or I am Alice. Either way she is my inspiration.
Here is the outfit, what do you think? Should I go blonde (traditional), black(sinister), red (passionate), pink, green or purple (all surreal and somewhat cutting in on Cheshire Cat's territory - I think)? Help!!!



Such cute hat and gloves that match the heart on the corset!




There are more accessories for this outfit on heavyred.com, I think I like everything, the hat the gloves, the little pocket watch necklace, the harlequin stockings, the dress, the corset, the elegant strait jacket, even the 9" padlock - it tells my story pretty perfectly.

I love Alice in Wonderland~ It was my first group cosplay last year. I honestly think since you want an edgier Alice to go with a layered/multi colored wig, plus the outfit itself has a ton of different patterns I say since it is wonderland not to stop at the hair! Here are some color combos I think will work. I also like the idea of a short haired Alice since it would look nice with the headdress and allow the outfit it be shown off more.

Their greatest error was thinking that they could make us into willing puppets who would fill the thankless
role of your everyday villain without complaint... They were wrong!

Wow - they all make such different statements!
I do love the 2 toned, but I'm worried because the red in the did is much brighter then the red on the corset / gloves / hat. What do you think?

I loooooooove the last wig. There is something so childishly elegant about ringlets!

I could pair it with some wild eyelashes and maybe eye sparkles.

Hmm I guess that is true about the shades being different but you can always blend it together by putting the same shade on your nails and as your lip color. Those are both my favs. so I can not decide (I plan on buying both at some point lol) I think it should then depend on what color you want to play up more. Red and black you would have to go with the brighter make up while the ringlets could be more of anything you want from extreme to natural. I also have never owned a ringlet wig so it might be harder to maintain
