Homemade Alice in Wonderland Group Costume
Our group decided to go as the Alice in Wonderland party. We had The Cheshire Cat, The Queen of Hearts, The Mad Hatter (Tim Burton's version), Alice, The Tea Party Rabbit and, of course, our Late White Rabbit (who is really late, by this we mean pregnant).
Our Homemade Alice in Wonderland Group Costume was made by The Queen of Hearts. She put the most time and effort into the project, while The Mad Hatter helped with his costume.
The Queen's costume was all handmade from pieces of material that were sown together and some 16- gauge electric fence wire was used to make the bottom springy. On the back of her there was a smile of the Cheshire Cat.
The Cheshire Cat was also, from head to toe, made from spare material.
The Mad Hatter's costume took, perhaps, the longest. The Hat was 100% constructed using cardboard, poster board, material, feather duster feathers, knitting needles and some 16-gauge electric fence wire. The suit was an old green suit that we spray-painted lightly with purple spray paint. The belt across the chest was just spools of thread woven with yarn on an old belt.
Alice's costume was an old blue dress with a white apron sown on top.
The Tea Party Rabbit used a few colorful shirts and handmade ears that the Queen of Hearts constructed.
The White Rabbit had a lady's red overcoat. We took a foam circular ball, glued cotton balls onto it and then pinned it to the back for a tail. We also found an old clock and tied it to yarn to hang from her neck (so she wouldn’t have to hold it all night).
All in all, we had the time of our lives and everyone loved our costumes.

Homemade Alice in Wonderland Family Costumes
For the second year in a row, we have teamed up with our friends to create an entire theme including our kids (last year we went as the Flintstones and Rubbles). With a couple trips to the local thrift store, fabric store, our own closets, the fact that two of us are 7 months pregnant, as well as looking through a few online tutorials of how to alter clothing, we came up with the following homemade Alice in Wonderland family costumes: Alice in Wonderland, the Mad Hatter, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, the March Hare, the White Rabbit and the Cheshire Cat.
We upped the anty this year with homemade bunny ear and cat hats complete with wire to help the ears stand and flap, along with custom bow ties sewn from thrift store t-shirts.
The entire Cheshire cat outfit is made from one medium woman’s stripped shirt with some extra pink-ish fabric for accents. Alice’s apron was re-fashioned from a thrift store window valance. Enjoy!
My family got together and decided to do an Alice in Wonderland Group Costume. We really got into the characters even talking and acting like them. The caterpillar was probably the most work. We used spray foam to construct the mushroom then carved a hole for my son's body to go into and painted it. It fit snug enough he didn't have to hold it up.
Then we fashioned a skirt/stem to match and sewed a caterpillar body out from the shirt section and attached the arms together with fishing line so he could move many arms. Tweedle Dee and Dum we used flexible tubing and threaded it through a casing. We found a baseball cap pattern and attached felt flags. The king is actually wearing a big plastic/foam wig we painted.
We got lots of compliments and had a blast.
