    Soo true , there is alot of reasons why people like to build a figure as a model. some just a big fan of alice that they really want one as a model for a display to impress others when they see it.:mrgreen:

    There is a close neighbour next door to me , as which i spoke to her i do paper modeling & i show her some of the models that i have done.After she was impressed with my work, she ask if i can do a paper doll or something similar to a doll for her granddaughter. So i reply to here i'm doing a alice royal suit as a paper model this will be good for her, she is only 9 but i told her it is only for a display & it is very fragile to play with.

    She was happy with it after showing pics of the model with out the vorpal blade.:thumb:

    Also from the old American McGee's Alice the paper model version of alice was not as graphical as from Alice madness returns.

    When I was very young, I used to help my other, a professional seamstress,cut out patterns for pants suits, wedding gowns, Men's Suits, you name it. Macy's, Reads department stores, and a couple of others would place orders, and as a family unit, we would bang out out 100 suits or Winter Jacket or so. My father died when I was very young and my Mom raised 8 of us, never going on welfare, or taking any support. Those productions runs paid for trips, utility bills, and a really nice car, that she purchased cash. In 1970, she purchased a 1968 Mercedes Benz 320 4 door couple.

    You patterns could easily be adapted for making clothing like that. You could always hire some babes to do the hard work, and do the design. There is the possibility of making big money in that. In some of these little Connecticut towns, people are quite well off making custom outfits for people who not even want to be seen shopping for something someone else is wearing! Coplay is really big. I am often amazed at the beautiful women "playing". You may have a little goldmine there. It's one thing to be able to make them, but designing is a whole 'nother thing. :)

    Wish i can do that but my skills with materials is not that good , i use to work in one printing place that print out flags , curtains , bed sheets & special orders that came in but that's about it.

    I have came across some websites that is selling these clothings online but they are pricey to buy.

    I'll tell you a big secret to material. Pay attention to the brain. It will stretch one way, and not the other. That is how clothes are made to follow a persons body. Being a 14 year old boy and stretching these dressing all over these 19 and 20 year old girls took MUCH concentration. Much, so much, I still have the images in my head, 34 years later. For some reason, they would change in front of me like I didn't exist. I played the part well too. I acted like I didn't exist really well.. Now, married all these many years later, it's almost the same thing all over again! Well, not quite. My wife notices me, as far as the rest of all women go, I am dead to them, and that works out well. :)

    Hmmm interesting , all though sometimes my brain tends to wonder all over the place. Even when i watching a movie or down at the shops , it's like it open the door & flu out of my head.well that's my brain sometimes.sign1

    When you think of some dresses , skirts or mens clothing it's just gone a bit over board. well that's what i think.:p

    Wow, for a second, I thought you might have dismembered someone!

    Great job!. Put a lamp shade on it with a Light bulb and plug, and you'll make a fortune!
