Cosplay | Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland | Norwich Big Geek Meet

Hi everyone! If you follow me on any of my social media accounts, you’ve probably seen a few photos already of my Alice cosplay, but I didn’t give too much details of why, where, what I was actually up to. Well, the answer is… I attended my first ever Norwich Big Geek Meet!


Norwich Big Geek Meet is hosted by a company named Animeleague who organise Big Geek Meets all over the UK, free-to-attend events that welcome anybody and everybody who love all things nerdy to meet up, cosplay, and have fun!


Although I have had a blast dressing up for fancy dress parties and for Scare Actor work in the past, this was my first ever “proper” cosplay. Whatever I chose for my first cosplay I decided just had to be Disney-related (I’m sure you can tell how much of a DisNerd I am from the majority of my blog content!), so I decided on Alice Kingsleigh from Disney/Tim Burton’s live action Alice In Wonderland.


There’s a few reasons why I chose this particular Alice; a) I love the Tim Burton movie, it’s amazing and I cannot wait for the sequel this month, b) I think Alice’s blue dress from the movie is just beautiful and, most importantly, c) Alice has always been one of my all-time favourite Disney characters, but Mia Wasikowska’s Alice was, in my opinion, a perfect portrayal of her inquisitive, curious personality and adventurous free-spirit.


The whole day was a brilliant experience, we had a wonderful time and met so many lovely people, everyone’s cosplays were spot-on and looked incredible. I think it’s safe to say we’ll be attending the next one in July! I’m currently running a poll on Twitter (which ends Monday 9th May) as I need help deciding what Disney character I should cosplay at the next event. If you can head over to my Twitter (@MandyJean) and vote for who you’d like to see out of the four options, I’d be very grateful!

My name is Mandy Jean, I’m 23, and I’m probably likely to be in the top 5 of the most nerdy people you’ll ever meet (I’ve been personally informed of this on more than one occasion). I’m also obsessed with Disney movies, an avid comic reader and pastel colours are my Kryptonite. When I’m not blogging, I’m a cosplayer under the name Enchanted Rose Cosplay, and have been working part-time as a pro make-up artist for 7 years. Oh, I also enjoy sketching in my downtime and chilling with my dogs, Maggie May and Minnie Bow.
