Alice en Bataille

| |

We like gothic and we like literary, so Heavy Red’s Alice en Bataille couture Halloween costume really hits the spot. The concept is a sort of goth battle-ready Alice in Wonderland. Each year, Heavy Red does a different take on Alice in Wonderland cosplay.

Maybe I am over-thinking it, but I do believe the progression of Alice costumes progresses through the themes of the books, first riffing on Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, and now moving on to Through the Looking-Glass. If you would like to over-think this analysis with me, I’d love for you to download a free Kindle book of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and of Through the Looking-Glass.

I believe that this increasingly dangerous and capable Alice is themed more for the beginning of Through the Looking Glass. As always, Heavy Red has stunning photography of their designs (lots more on their site) and I do believe that is a vorpal sword Alice is holding in front of that beautiful spooky tree. Perhaps to do battle with the Jabberwock. Some day Alice shall be Queen. Perhaps soon you shall be Alice.

Heavy Red offers overnight and/or expedited shipping throughout the world, so perhaps that day shall be very soon when you shall be Alice. Heavy Red offers different Alices for different moods, but, this Hallows Eve, Alice en Bataille is the newest and most fear-inspiring Alice on the block.


‘Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

‘Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!’

He took his vorpal sword in hand:
Long time the manxome foe he sought—
So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
And stood awhile in thought.

And as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!

One, two! One, two! And through and through
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went galumphing back.

‘And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!’
He chortled in his joy.

‘Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.
