Style Icons Part 1 - Alice

January 1st, 2012 (01:31 pm)

I realise Alice is the cliche style icon for a Lolita, and I do have a soft spot for the original stories, aswell as the Disney version. However, it's American McGee's Alice that has particularly captured my imagination lately. I recently started playing Alice Madness Returns which I'm enjoying in an intense and creepy kinda way. Part of the attraction is that the game is asethetically stunning and not just the scenery but Alices many guises throughout. Alice changes her appearence when she enters each new section of the game, so I'm going to talk about a few of my favourite outfits:

Steamdress (Alice meets Steampunk):
 What I particularly like about this outfit is the rivets  along the edge of he dress and the buckle waist cincher. I would love to do a version of this with; a similar belt, buckle shoes, a black blouse and skirt and a few steam punk accessories. As with all of these outfits I would avoid wearing stripey tights/socks and an apron at the risk of making it looking like cosplay.
Royal Suit:
  My favourite outfit. I would love a version of this dress. I especially like the sleeves and design of the bodice.
Silk Maiden:
I'm generally not a big fan of oriental dress designs and prints in Lolita, yet I would love a dress llike the one above. I suppose the closest would be one of Meta kimono prints?

I especially love her bows at the back of her dresses. I'm tempted to buy brooches so i can pin one on to the back of mine.
Alice is so iconic I thought she'd be a good way to kick this series off, and first post of the new year :D. (can't  believe how long I've stuck at this!) .  

Happy new year ruffle butts x
