The visual fantasticality of Tim Burton's film did not disappoint, and I feasted my eyes, fascinated by the characters, costumes and scenery. Alice's signature pale blue dress is familiar, but a little more mature, to suit Alice's age in the film.
"Young Alice is in a neverland between adult clothes and children’s clothes,
which is why I made the blue dress the way that it is, it doesn’t quite touch the ground,
it doesn’t have a hoop, it doesn’t have a corset but it has embroidery around the hem
which acknowledges Wonderland in a way but without saying it."
- Atwood on the blue dress
The showstopper frock, however, was most definitely the red dress. I just could not get enough of it. The asymmetricality, the translucency of the layers, the frayed ruffle, even the little arm wrap Alice acquires during the film, it's perfect.
