Every cosplayer starts somewhere, and for Redditor ScarlettTon, it was with an Alice costume from Alice: Madness Returns. She recently shared her handmade project and said it was her first attempt at crafting a costume — and she only had three days to make the entire cosplay. She explains:
basically my mum, cousin and I had to work of reference photos as we had no pattern. It was very stressful but and we didn’t think we could finish if but we made it just in time. A lot of sewing and cutting out shapes and altering it so it would fit me best. If I had more time I would make a few changes but I plan on recreating it as well as the viral blade to a much higher quality.
Congrats on your complete your first costume, ScarlettTon! We look forward to seeing what you make next.
