In celebration of the release of Tim Burton's version of Alice in Wonderland, we thought we'd offer you some other alternative Alices.
Our search for Alice turned up various versions of sexy for adults. For kids and teens also, the skirts are short and full, except on the Alice Blue Gown, which is modestly full length and includes a satiny blue dress, white apron and matching blue bow.
A search on the Queen of Hearts brings up costumes that range from sexy to sassy to seriously fancy. If you feel more like the Mad Hatter, we've got your hat…and a cute and sexy version for the ladies that we call the Tea Party Hostess.
Then in our Cosplay section, we have three Alices - one from Resident Evil Extinction, who just happens to be named Alice, and two that are based on Lewis Carroll's stories.
Though her skirt length indicates innocence, the symbols on her apron hint at the darker character beneath from American McGee's Alice. Here, Wonderland, being a creation of Alice's mind, has been corrupted by the insanity caused by the death of her family and her subsequent suicide attempt. Ten years later, the White Rabbit summons Alice to aid a radically altered Wonderland, twisted under the despotic Queen of Hearts. If Alice can manage to save Wonderland, she might restore her own sanity as well.
The other is from Pandora Hearts, the Manga that features heavy references to Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass. A mix of fantasy and mystery, it also is a darker twist on the tales, featuring a prison known as the "Abyss", a "chain" known as Alice, and a bloodstained black rabbit.
If you long for the innocent, untwisted Alice, pop the animated Disney classic into your nearest player!
