Introduction: Alice in Wonderland's Mad Hatter Costume (mostly the Hat)

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.

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 "perfect" or identical to the movie, but when you put it on, it looked AMAZING!

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!
