"Alice in Wonderland" Um from Umbridge










Alice in Wonderland

"Um From Umbridge"



Alice went to the Red Queen's castle, but she grew when she ate some of the rabbit's cake, so the Red Queen's seamstress made her a dress out of her drapes.
Her bustle is made with a
curtain tieback, ribbons, and old keys from Alice's grandfather.  Her necklace is a watch tied with a ribbon.  The shoes are "character shoes" that "Alice" doesn't need for her dance class anymore, so with some red ribbon the Queen of Hearts approved.  The "seamstress" changed a red dress to make it asymmetrical.  There was a spat about whether both sleeves should go, but ultimately the Red Queen didn't want her to loose her dress again.  It took over thirty rollers for the "hairdresser" to do her hair for the party, and it has to be done again for Halloween.
"Alice" outgrew the red hat on her head, and her"scratch" is from a Bandersnatch.



Alice's grandmother made her the Victorian rabbit.
Silver hearts still need to be painted on the ribbons,
but the Red Queen's staff is busy painting the roses red.


Has anyone seen a white rabbit?

I am sharing this at the amazing Fanciful Twist's Halloween Party!
