Original costumes and props from Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland on display...

Following the release of Tim Burton's live-action Alice in Wonderland in 2010 I've been fortunate to see a variety of original costumes and props from the Disney movie in person, but never so many in one place and so openly on display as at the Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives exhibit.

Actual costumes and props featured in Alice in Wonderland

Whether it be at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, the D23 Expo in Anaheim or at the new exhibition at The Reagan Library & Museum in Simi Valley on July 17, 2012, the Disney outfits and props are always presented impeccably. On this occasion they've even tried to recreate the Mad Hatter's tea party to make Colleen Atwood's Oscar-winning costumes even more memorable.

Included in the display were Alice's White Knight armour and the Mad Hatter's battle costume, which you can see in more detail here at Hollywood Movie Costumes and Props.

They also had the dress Mia Wasikowska wears as the nineteen year old 'Alice' when she first disappears down the rabbit hole to the magic realm of Wonderland.

If you like this costume, be sure to check out two other dresses she wears in Alice in Wonderland, including her 'Um' dress from the Red Queen's court and the outfit the Mad Hatter whips up to her after she shrinks out of her other dress.

Meanwhile here's another of the eccentric 'Mad Hatter' costumes that Johnny Depp wears in this big screen re-imagining of Lewis Carroll's literary classic, standing beside his chair from his tea party. It's been a favourite costume choice at West Hollywood's Halloween Carnaval festivities in recent years.

And if that wasn't enough, here's a fantastic selection of props featured prominently in the fantasy movie.

In addition to the Vorpal Sword (and its ornate case) which Alice uses to slay the Jabberwocky and the Oraculum Scroll which was drawn by artist and conceptual designer Dermot Power, the display case also held the Red Queen's sceptre and eye-glasses, a 'Drink Me' bottle, an 'Eat Me' cake box, skeleton keys in three sizes and even a miniature hall table from the film.

If you're a fan of the movie, be sure to check out these other original props from Disney's Alice in Wonderland on display.
