So here's some very nice and serious "Alice" cosplay.. (tons of photoshop though)

Check the link below for more pictures, the rabbit one is really cute!
CGI is just cheaper than practical effects these days. It's even true in movies; I felt The Hobbit skimped way, way, way too much on practical effects and looked fake and video-game-esque as a result.

Cosplayers have so little money compared to, you know, a film studio that of course they're going to use computer enhancements over practical effects... it'll be cheaper and look better than anything they could ever afford.

I much prefer Photoshopped cosplay pictures to horrible shiny fabric and bargain-basement budget costumes that look pulled out of the Adam West Batman TV series.
