White Knight armour from Alice in Wonderland on display...

Hard to believe that its been over two years since Tim Burton's vision of Alice in Wonderland graced the big screen in Disney's live-action adaptation of Lewis Carroll's famous and beloved literary character.

Here's the wonderfully intricate suit of armour worn by Mia Wasikowska as the titular 'Alice' for her battle with the Red Queen's forces and the fearsome Jabberwocky. This costume exhibit from the Walt Disney Archives was photographed on display at Disney Studios in Burbank, California on December 30, 2011.

Colleen Atwood won a prestigious Oscar for her costume designs in this 2010 movie, so be sure to check out more original costumes from Alice in Wonderland here at Hollywood Movie Costumes and props.

Personally I love the design of this lightweight 'White Knight' armour because on screen you wonder how someone as tiny as the actress could move so effortlessly in such a heavy suit of armor, but when you see it up close you realize it's all smoke and mirrors and this costume isn't really made from traditional metal at all.
