I made the hat the night before I needed it. It has a cardboard body, covered with fabric and stuck with double sided tape (what? I cant realy sew). The hat pins are wooden skewers, with various buttons hot glued to them. The price (10/6) is a burnt peice of paper, go figure. I stitched the red in to make it my own (and make it look like I actually had any talent) and I am aware that the fabric was wrong, but i wanted to make it my own.

I sewed a close-esqe patteren to the pants by looking at pictures.

Also, i did have an orange wig (refering to the last picture, I stole that one from my "fairy" freind) that I wore to the parade, but it was realy annoying, so that was it.

I was really just proud of The Hat, and (sadly) just wanted to show it off.

If you have any questions, send me a message and I'll be happy to help out.

That's actually a really good mad hatter hat
You know, I think what I like most about this hat is that is shows what I think is an important rule of costume-making: it doesn't have to be perfect. You don't sew, so you used the tools and skills you have to create something. It may not be technically &quot;perfect&quot; or identical to the movie, but when you put it on, it looked AMAZING!<br><br>So often, people get caught up in self-doubt before they even begin a project and end up not trying. You made a fantastic hat and had a great time, and I love it! Great job!
OMG!! this is sso cool!! <br>im so gonna try this!! <br>:)
