You can learn all about Lizzie, Alice's sister from Alice: Madness Returns
at the AMR Wiki
. These models were created because after completing AMR for the first time, I was deeply saddened that McGee and Spicy Horse missed out on the great opportunity to use Lizzie more actively in the story. This is my way of making that happen. :]
I put a lot of thought into these designs for these models, and here's a brief summary of what each of their outfits mean/represent.
Based off the Liddell family portrait, Lizze has suspenders and a scarf (though Lizzie's is actually more of a handkerchief). I gave her a blue dress in honor of Alice's classic dress, but I made it darker to reflect Lizzie's more mature age. Her entire outfit is also rather dark and grungy to reflect the London Alice look. I also chose to remove her stockings, since those are more Alice's trademark (notice none of her models are sporting stockings) and also because low socks on a young girl/teenager at the time could seem somewhat "scandalous," which plays into Bumby's obsession with Lizzie. And the hair is the closest match I could find to the portrait.
This is the partially innocent version of Lizzie I imagine Alice would encounter in Wonderland. She still remembers what happened to her, and she clings to that memory, hoping to guide Alice to the end to get revenge for her and the rest of the family's murder. But she's tainted here, obvious by the splatters of Ruin on her hands. Lizzie's death is translated to Wonderland in the form of stitched lips, keeping her from speaking the truth to Alice. Her eyes are no longer green but a fading gray. The Ruin is slowly claiming her mind, and there's so much consuming her that it even leaks from her eye, slowly leading to her blindness, and stains her hair, making it a slightly darker brown. I chose to make her barefoot because that's how she was when she was killed, and lastly, her gown's charred edges and bold black/red color scheme is paying homage to the house fire.
Corrupt Puppet Lizzie:
This one's my favorite.
Driven blind by the Ruin's destruction of her mind, Lizzie's eyes are now nearly solid white with Ruin smothering the white. Ruin continues to drip from her eyes, and her once-stitched lips are now permanently sealed shut. Her hair is nearly stained black, with only a few strands of her once-brown hair still peaking through. At this stage, her corruption has progressed so far, that she is merely a puppet to Bumby now (I imagine she would be a sub-boss leading up to the final boss in AMR). She has lost all control of her body, having become a complete doll (just as Alice nearly becomes). Her outfit is blank and colorless to imply that everything Lizzie once was has completely vanished. She's an empty shell, a lifeless doll. Blind and without her own mind, she would willingly attack Alice endlessly at the hands of her puppeteer, never knowing she was trying to slaughter her own sister.
I hope these models still hold some relevance to someone because they took a lot of hours of work and effort and thought to create. I never got to work with London Lizzie myself, but you can see Wonderland Lizzie in 'My Heart Is Open, Alice.' and Corrupt Puppet Lizzie in Corrupt Puppet Feel free to send me any artwork you make with Lizzie's models. I'd love to see it!
