I made this Mad Hatter costume head to toe (minus the socks and shoes). I finished most of it by creating my own patterns.

My daughter, Kielyn, helped with all the “extra’s” for it. This is her real hair, teased and color sprayed. She looks awesome and almost identical to the Johnny Depp version of the Mad Hatter!!! We absolutely loved this year’s Mad Hatter costume. I made a shirt, a scarf type item to tie around her neck, a vest, a jacket, hat, and skirt. We took the same material from the hat and incorporated it into the vest and buttons on the vest to tie the items together. Kielyn painted the “spools” to look like thread.

For the makeup, we used a photo of Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter from the movie Alice in Wonderland

We tried to copy the shading and colors. I put her hair up in foam rollers all night and in the morning, flipped her hair over and began to tease. I then used orange hair color spray and when it was stiff, pulled it apart to make it stick out all crazy.

We took a tin stove-eye cover and camping cup, spray painted them white and decorated with a clock and white rabbit and “tea party” decorations.

She looks great in this costume, don’t you think?
