Loved Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland? So did I, that's what has inspired me to make this post detailing how to cosplay as the Red Queen, voiced by Helena Bonham-Carter. Its a colorful, very eye-catching look, plus its fun to run around parties asking who ate all the tarts. Its perfect for Halloween. Lets get going then! Can't be late.

To start of with, you'll need the basic dress. There are two options, the first being a long skirted dress which is most true to the original design, featured above. It comes with a petticoat to give the skirt some lift, so you don't have to worry about that, plus you get a free crown as well.

The second option is a more sassy, sexy and flirty version of the costume with a shorter skirt, featured on the right. This outfit comes with the costume dress, a petticoat to give it some volume, a collar with attached choker, a cute little crown and a pair of white knee high stockings.

Once you've chosen your costume, let me suggest some fun accessories for it. This red royal sceptre goes fantastically with either outfit, as does this pair of red and black shoes by Pleaser. These black baby-doll Mary Janes by Leg Avenue also look great with both costumes.

Red Queen Wig
Once you have the costume down, its time to fluff up your hair and do your makeup. Above is cute Red Queen wig that you can buy to get the look quickly, easily, and without the need to perm and dye the living daylights out of your hair. Meanwhile, below is a fun tutorial on how to achieve the Red Queen's makeup, using Snazaroo Facepaint (White), talcum powder, Urban Decay Eyeshadow (Painkiller), elf Liquid Liner and MAC Lipstick (Red).

And there you have it! One quick and easy Red Queen costume that is sure to look amazing regardless of the occasion.
