[show]The Jabberwock creature costume was designed by production designer Philip M. Jefferies very early in the production preparation. A description from Lewis Carrol provided the costume design: a body of a dragon, whiskers, fish-like head, insect antennae and pair of talon-like hands on both arms and wings, also serves as forelegs when it walks on ground. The costume was fabricated by Adam Hill (II) and Tom McLaughlin at the Berman's Studios. When the creature costume was shown to Irwin Allen, McLaughlin wore it. Casting could find neither an actor nor a stunt man to fill the height matching McLaughlin height. Irwin decided McLaughlin was the "Jabberwock" and he performed the role from that point on. Interestingly, the set decorator had placed too large in scale furniture for Alice's interior study-library set, when the character first appears. The art director supervised the decorator's selection of size and scale of the furniture (chairs and tables) in order for the Jabberwocky performer to move around in the set. The Jabberwocky appears through out the production (as a figment of Alice's imagination) until at the end, back at home, the Jabberwocky disappears. The monster-creature was a terrific costume character.
