[quote=HeartlessNobody;4291024]Hey guys, just wondering if anyone has any idea on how to make her Hobby horse. I plan on making the level 1 hobby horse. [as it is the most toy-like, and I'm currently working on Misstitched.]

I'm lost as anything trying to figure out how to make the head and the wheels at the bottom of the stick.

I had a quick look through some old magazines and books: most of them seem to recommend making the head from chicken wire and paper mache. I'm not sure about the wheels though. I think you would have to use a wooden pole, so htat you can attach the wheels to it somehow.

@Lizzie: As far as design goes I'd lean more towards the first than the second. I'd just be worried about the shininess of the dress if you were to make it out of the first fabric. Since it looks to be a bit too shiny. But that just maybe due to the flash and how close you were to the fabric.
My brother is making the one for his girlfriend out of a PVC pipe, made a template out of cardboard pieces, and is covering it in spray foam and carving the shape. Then he's going to bondo and resin it. He's taking progress pictures, so I will share them when he's done.

I also just finished my Alice cosplay. I have pictures in my gallery.

I'm going to be making the hobby horse in the near future. I'm doing it for my final project in art class.

Looks fantastic! I love that you made the Pepper Grinder, and you really nailed the slender fit of the dress!

Thanks so much!
I definitely want to make more of her dresses and at some point make the upgraded pepper grinders too!

More progress on the Queen- slowly but surely getting there!
Overall.
Sleeve poofs.

And I happen to be working on the wig for a certain impresario, and I'm real excited about that! Just adding lots and lots of hair in right now. :3 My favorite character.

After finishing the Classic dress, I'm tempted to do the Royal Suit one as it's my favorite. I feel good about the pattern as it the same basic structure as the Classic, it's finding the right fabric that worries me. If I do end up doing this, I might just buy FM-Anime's version.

Finding the right fabrics is really one of the trickiest parts about doing some of Alice's dresses. I've been helping my brother's girlfriend hunt down the fabrics for her steamdress (I'm actually sewing it for her) and we've been going mad trying to find the right stripe for the dress. She's actually decided to do an even more steampunked version of the steamdress. It will look like Alice for sure (along with the amazing Hobby Horse my brother is building for her), but it will have her own, original twists to it.

I might be a little crazy and attempt her Fleshmaiden outfit >.> (http://images.wikia.com/americanmcge...leshmaiden.png)
I have a few ideas how to make it but it'll definitely be a long project.
But if that becomes too frustrating I want to do either her Silkmaiden dress or her steamdress I think.

Hee-hee: the dress looks amazing!!!

I've been thinking about doing her original dress. ^^
My friend is horribly attached to her steampunk-ish one and she's thought about doing that for Halloween.

THE CON'S SO CLOSE, but I'm aaaalmost done!

Full view- I had to simplify the top design due to time (and three times messing up on the accurate version XD), but I'm pretty happy with it so far! I've since finished the ruffles on her sleeve cuffs and have painted the design along the outermost skirt, so it's just touchups with the waistband on the top, the heart on front, and then dat collar!
