    The Checker Board clearing was created on the right of the forest area, with backings rented from JC Backings, located on the MGM lot. Brown paper was taped to the bottoms of the landscape drops, painted to tie into the checkerboard main ground cover. The checkerboard pattern was planned in a false perspective grid pattern for the distant checkerboard ground rows to become smaller in scale. This allowed the painted checkerboard scale on the backings to become smaller, as well. The miniature train cars were built by an independent train hobby company, using the train car design provided by the art director Hub Braden. The full scale train compartment was located on the edge of the set for the scene to be filmed. The miniature train track was set up inside this main set filming separately. Upon looking at the exterior of the full scale compartment car, Irwin ordered the exterior to be finished. This had not been planned. Construction and paint finished the exterior prior to filming the scene. The windows and doorway in the compartment interior looked out onto the checkerboard landscape.

    The Jabberwock creature costume was designed by the Production Designer Phillip J. 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 and Tom McLaughlin at the Berman's Studios. When the creature costume was shown to Irwin Allen, Tom McLauglin wore the costume. He had also served as the model for the costume's fabrication. Casting couldn't find neither an actor nor a stunt man to fill the height matching Tom's height. Irwin decided Tom 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.
