It’s already time to pick out costumes for Halloween parties and events. A popular choice for all ages is Alice in Wonderland. It seems almost everyone has seen the movies or read the books. For larger women, a plus size Alice in Wonderland costume is an easy choice that also looks good.
A big reason to choose this type is that you may already have most of the components at home. All you need is a blue dress with a skirt that falls below the knee and with puffy sleeves. Really, any blue dress will work, once you put a white pinafore on over it.
The apron length is a little shorter than the dress. It will look most like a little girl’s if it has some lace or flounces on it. You can easily add some yourself if you know how to sew. If you are going to need to carry things with you, an apron with a pocket is useful.
You will probably want to wear comfortable shoes. As long as they look like something a young girl would wear, they will go with your costume. The socks can be either striped or white, and whatever length you like.
If you are not already blonde, you will probably want to wear a wig. Most representations of this character shows her with long, straight hair, so try to stick to that. You should also wear a plastic or cloth headband, which can be black or blue as you like.
You may not be able to find the costume in the stores. Whether you are looking to buy or rent, the stores don’t carry a lot of plus-size options. If you are looking for a particular item you are going to be out of luck. Fortunately, there are a lot of online shops that do carry plus sizes. Check the sizing charts to be sure that they will fit you. It is a good idea to talk directly to someone at the company on the phone or live chat so you can be extra sure about how the sizing runs. That way, you won’t end up buying something that you can’t use, and you won’t find yourself scrambling to find something else.
The plus size Alice in Wonderland costume is great choice because you’ll look great, and you can go so many different ways with it, too. These are just a few ideas. If you look at pictures and illustrations, you will come up with even more.
