Homemade Mad Hatter and Queen of Hearts Costumes

Homemade Mad Hatter and Queen of Hearts Costumes

The idea for the Homemade Mad Hatter and Queen of Hearts Costumes came from Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland”, starring Johnny Depp, and premiering in March 2010. We happened to see the trailer for the movie and pictures from it online and based our costumes on them. Both costumes were completely homemade by us.

A big focus of the Mad Hatter’s costume is his hat. To make the hat, we found a cowboy hat, which we used for the brim, and a small garbage can, which we attached to the cowboy hat’s brim. We covered the entire thing in fabric from a fabric store. Accessories for the hat were all handmade out of wire and jewels. The “3/5” tag was part of a cardboard pizza box; we then burned the edges for an aged look.

The jacket, the vest, the pants, the collared shirt, the shoes and the bag were all found at a thrift store. All of these items were drastically altered to fit the Mad Hatter’s style by using a sewing machine, spray paint, fire, and sand paper.

The Queen of Hearts started as a plain velvet black dress from the thrift store. We then built up this dress with different fabrics from the fabric store, spray paint, fabric paint, and jewels. The red and gold skirt parts were sewn on with a sewing machine and hand painted.

The gold crown and scepter stick were handmade also. The crown was a sauce can which we altered and spray-painted. The scepter consisted of a candle-stick, heart-shaped cookie cutter, and jewels, which were all spray-painted and hot-glued together. All makeup and hair were also done by us.

Homemade Cheshire Cat and Mad Hatter Couple Halloween Costume Ideas

Homemade Cheshire Cat and Mad Hatter Couple Halloween Costume Ideas

Our costumes are based on the Alice In Wonderland characters the Mad Hatter from the second movie and the Cheshire Cat from the first.

For the Cheshire Cat we used face-paint and eyeshadows for the face makeup, and canned hair sprays for the hair. We cut up an old tshirt to represent the cats stripes.

For the Mad Hatter we used face paint and mostly eye shadows on the face makeup, bought green colored eye contacts and glued an orange wig inside the top hat. We made the sash out of thread spools and weaved them together with ribbons. The pants are just old dress pants laying around the house. The bow is made out of 2 pieces of fabric sewed together, and the jacket it from an old thrift store. The scarf out of the pocket is just a ripped piece of fabric found in the basement. We took the movie cover with us everywhere we went while trying to put our costumes together making sure the Mad Hatter's outfit was dead on.

The homemade queen of hearts costume involved a red dress with glued hearts on it and a corset over it. The corset had glued gold trimmings. The stockings were purchased online and were the same as in the movie. The wig was from a discount store. I sewed the hair using clear thread into an up-do.

The homemade mad hatter costume had lace glued to the coat sleeves. The hat was covered with fabric and a sash and the bow tie was fabric glued together. The wig was from a discount store.

Alice and the Mad Hatter Costumes

Everyone always told my daughter that she looked like Alice so we went ahead and dressed her for Halloween. Their grandmother made the dress and my son's suit from patterns.

I bought my son's hat from a costume shop and wrote the sign for it that was in the book. I also bought the dress shirt and the white headband and tights.

My daughter was easily recognizable, but my son needed to be with his sister to be understood :-)

Homemade Queen of Hearts and Mad Hatter Couple Halloween Costumes

These are homemade Queen of Hearts and Mad Hatter couple Halloween costumes. I bought the wigs/hat/bowtie. The rest of the costume was made using a pattern and then improvising to make it as realistic to movie. Pictures from the movie were used to help put the make up on the girls just like the movie.

The makeup and head shots look very realistic to the characters in the movie. I wish we could see more of the complete costume to be able to see just how authentic the costumes are. The Queens expression is priceless!
