Although the 2010 tale was improved to have happened in Alice's teenage years, the magic and fantasy which we have all noticed in Lewis Carroll's story lived on in the motion picture adaptation. Tim Burton's version was full of color and distinct images. With a mix of Tim Burton's dark and brooding creativity and Lewis Carroll's unusual storyline and characters, the Alice in Wonderland 2010 video adaptation became this year's top choice for kids and adults alike.

Aside from being a well-loved story and film, Alice in Wonderland has also become a top selection for costume-themed activities and Halloween parties; Alice's fancy dress has always been a highly recognizable piece along with the Queen of Hearts and the Madhatter.

Alice's most widely used attire is her glowing blue puffy-sleeved blouse and white apron. This gown gives her the adventurous type of farm girl look which stays timeless throughout the years. This famous dress has been a fairy tale favorite and has also been used for other fairy tale film adaptations.

In the 2010 version of Alice in Wonderland, Alice's apparel took on a distinct design. Instead of the casual Victorian era outfit, she is seen donning an off-shoulder blue outfit instead and through the film, her outfit changes size and color, and at one point, she put on the Red Queen's curtains.

Alice isn't the only one who alters clothing throughout the movie. The sewing-obsessed Madhatter changes hats in the course of the video as well and has even supplied to give the Red Queen a hat makeover. However, being the Red Queen, she has declined almost every style suggested to her.

For males, the Madhatter is regarded as the best pick since he has the most eye-catching suit in the story. Since there are various well-known adaptations of Alice in Wonderland, any individual who prefers to come as the Madhatter can choose from two different designs that are equally recognizable; however, since the 2010 film is still fresh in everyone's memory, Johnny Depp's suit is highly recommended.

If you want to be the intelligent and mysterious cat, the Cheshire cat is a good choice for both men and women. Although the Cheshire cat has often been pictured as a male, ladies could also costume as the Cheshire cat and not be mistaken for simply a girl in a cat suit. The Cheshire cat's stripped tail makes this costume easily familiar.

Absalom the Caterpillar and time-obsessed White Hair are only two of the three most popular talking characters in Wonderland. Absalom provides help to Alice during her most troubling occasions while the White Hair constantly reminds her to show up on time on tea parties. If you want to represent any of these two characters in parties, you could come as the caterpillar in this huge and multi-legged caterpillar costume or as the White Rabbit in this full length attire, complete with bunny ears.

Last but not the least, if you want to portray a villain, the Red Queen or the Queen of Hearts would be a very good choice. She is, after all, known for her stern attitude and merciless ways; your costume will be very recognizable in a crowd.
