Homemade Alice and the Queen of Hearts Costumes

My daughter and I love Alice in Wonderland so we decided to create homemade Alice and the Queen of hearts costumes. She even carried a scepter that was huge and said "off with your head". My dress had actual cards all along the bottom. It was a fun year.

I was a peacock another year and my daughter was a Smurf and Velma from Scooby Doo other years, boy those were fun too. I'll try to get the pics and post those too.

We never buy our costumes store bought, too much fun to make em ourselves. I especially love adding all of the extra little touches like me carrying a Cheshire cat for example. We make our costumes every year. I even am making a friend of mine's little boy into a yo yo this year. Whoa, that'll really be a doozy.

I take pride in taking my time and being that mom that the kiddos all know will make something awesome for them in the end. My daughter's outfit was all hands sewn for the queen and mine was a child's apron cut and I added cards all around the bottom. The pictures do not do this justice, we looked hilarious. I recently redid the kitchen in our cottage to an Alice theme (just for fun) and we were able to use many parts of our costumes in there... Great memories.

Homemade Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum Costumes

I love the story of Alice In Wonderland so, for our work Halloween costumes, a friend and I dressed up in Homemade Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum Costumes.

We went to a used bargain store and found red sweat pants for under $5. Then we bought cheap, extra large yellow T-shirts. The collars/bibs were easily sewn, and we wrote the names of the characters on them with marker and pinned them to our shirts. I tied some blue fabric I had bought into a bow. We bought a big bag of fabric stuffing and stuffed ourselves fat, making sure that only our middles were round.

The hats were little circles of felt that I glued together in a cone shape. I cut a blue straw for the flag pole, and the flag was just yellow paper. We pinned orange felt to the hat for hair, wore black shoes, rosied our cheeks and drew on freckles.

It was so much fun; we laughed at ourselves so much as we scuttled around working and the customers' responses were great!

Coolest Homemade Alice and The Brady Bunch Costume Idea

Homemade Alice and The Brady Bunch Costume Idea

There's a story of a lovely lady! Growing up I loved The Brady Bunch, so for Halloween I wanted to be Alice & the rest of the Brady's!

For this homemade Alice and The Brady Bunch costume idea, my mom handmade my Alice uniform and I found a great wig that I was able to restyle, add some grays and put in that classic twist/bun she wore! I really ended up looking like her, it's amazing how that blue & white uniform really reminds people of Alice!

My brother constructed the frame out of wood, pvc piping and special blue plastic material we found to attach the pictures of the Brady's, which I had enlarged from a poster! It looked just like the opening scene from the Brady Bunch, my costume even played the theme song, which everybody would join in on!

The costume took about 2 weeks to make but worth every second! It was such a fun costume to wear, it brought everybody back to their childhood!
