As I mentioned in the last post, I used Eric Basaldua’s beautiful artwork on Alice for the costume. I also used that reference for the hairstyle. The costume was sculpted in Super Sculpey mixed with black Sculpey III to get the gray color. I didn’t use a metal armature for the skirt, but instead built up a thin layer of skirt and baked that. I then had an anchor to sculpt the rest of the skirt onto. For adherence to the figure, I brush a thin coating of Vaseline onto the figure and I then mix the Super Sculpey with a small amount of Vaseline to soften it and make it a bit more sticky.
The rabbit and accessories I also sculpted in Super Sculpey.
Michael Measles molded the figure and James Rowell then painted the master prototype you see here. He’ll also paint the Chase figure of Alice we’ll post soon.
Thanks for reading!
PS – You can see Alice in person at booth #4920 during Toy Fair in New York, February 12-15!
