A dress is the attire worn by Alice Liddell in her journey throughout Wonderland and Otherlands. Most of the dresses are either based on the appearance of certain domains and citizens of Wonderland, related to the works of the minds she visited, or possess special attributes. The dresses also have different Hollow Yves to suit their themes.
All of Alice's domain and Otherland dresses have two alchemical or astrological symbols on the apron, each different in appearance and meaning. The symbol explanations are in order of the appearance of the dress and have the closest relation to Alice, her experiences and personality.
The reason why Alice's dress symbols are different on promotional images of Alice compared to in-game were due to "poor communication/planning and/or might have to do with the marketing department being overly sensitive about the symbols and their meanings".
In Alice: Otherlands, the Classic dress is the only dress to have Hollow Yves' ribbons.
Unlike the previous dresses, the new dresses in "Leviathan" have no ribbons and Hollow Yves retains its skull appearance in each of them.
