In July, I was filming the first scene of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland for a book video contest and needed a costume ASAP. So after googling around to find pictures of the classic blue and white Disney outfit, I pulled out my trusty sewing machine and made the dress and apron myself! Here’s what I did:
You can’t really tell in the outdoor scenes at the end, but it was really hot the day we filmed. Angela and I were both sweating buckets during filming (which took about an hour) and had to keep fanning and wiping ourselves off in between takes – but it looks like just a lovely day by the riverbank in the final cut. Movie magic lol!
Fun fact: Angela was one of my Kpop dance students back in the day when I was still dancing and teaching at the University of Toronto with R.P.M dance crew. Aah, how I miss those days!
