Alice in Wonderland White Knight armour and Mad Hatter battle costume...

Aside from the futuristic Tron costume display, another of the highlights of the Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives exhibit at Disney's D23 Expo this year had to be these fantastic battle costumes from Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland.

I've already seen many costumes from the movie up close, but I loved seeing these Colleen Atwood designed outfits, especially the White Knight battle armour worn by Mia Wasikowska as the titular 'Alice' when she fights the Red Queen's army and the Jabberwocky at the end of the movie.

You don't often see battle armour made for women in movies, especially someone so petite as Mia, so it was interesting to see that the materials used were mainly faux metal and looked quite lightweight to wear. It's a wonderfully detailed costume and looked very convincing on the big screen.

For a more authentic suit of armour made from metal and chainmail, check out Milla Jovovich's Joan of Arc armour designed by Terry English.

Johnny Depp's colourful and unique Mad Hatter battle outfit and sword prop was also included in the exhibit.

If you're a fan of the eccentric character, be sure to check out another crazy Mad Hatter costume from Alice in Wonderland on display at Disney's D23 Expo on August 19, 2011.
