Okay... let's think. I have the dress, the makeup, the wig is at Angie's... The rest should be easy enough to find today. So what does that look like?
Lace-up gloves (probably from Hot Topic or a costume shop, right?)
Corset (the ONE TIME I need a Fredrick's of Hollywood and they went out of business... figures)
Those black boots I saw at DSW yesterday (would I really wear them again? Sure...)
Tights (Sarah said stripes, but I guess I had a pattern in mind... we'll see what's available for cheap)
Oh, and I need that headband from Forever 21 (if I can still find it in that mess of a store...)
What else am I missing.... eye lashes!
Um... so the list is longer than I thought it would be. The Hot Topic is downtown, thanks to the cleaning up of riffraff at Castleton Mall. The corset will have to be found at either a sex shop *sigh* or a costume place, providing neither one are sold out. This was a central piece to my outfit, so if this doesn't work out, I'll have to wear a regular apron...
I'm actually getting a little stressed out - is that weird? And I keep thinking about how I still have to be at work tomorrow at 7 am, so all this planning will have to only last me, what... three hours? I've always wanted to be Alice but never have. I just didn't like the idea of going blonde. But I feel the darker version of her is much more suited to me than the more bubbly version (or the readily available slut version). I still am kicking myself about the overpriced skirt from The Toggery. So rude to price anything at a consignment shop that high. Oh well.
Time to wash my face, throw on a hat, and get to Joanne's so I can find a ribbon for a choker...
