Mad Hatter DIY Costume

My Mad Hatter DIY costume is inspired by Tim Burton's version of the Mad Hatter. I did not have time to take pictures in the process of my making the costume due to time constraints, but it was made completely from scratch.

I started by making the infamous hat which was made from poster board, cardboard, an old scarf, a 10/6 card, and some mock vintage hat pins. Next I created the fingerless gloves using some old plaid shorts. Then I made the arsenal of thread using black string, over 20 spools of thread, and an old black belt. I then proceeded to distress an old brown blazer I purchased at a thrift store, along with some olive green pants, an orange sock, and stripped blue sock, and some old boots.

Then I added the accessories, including hand-made thimbles, a mock push-pin ring, and my roommate’s yellow scarf. I concluded this look by painting my nails yellow, putting in green contact lenses, painting my face white, and putting on "mad hatter" make up.

This Mad Hatter DIY costume took approximately a month's time of preparation and 12 hours to create. The most difficult part of this costume was... well, there's a tie between the making of the hat and the make-up. All in all, I had a blast making this outfit and I received tons of compliments.

For this Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland Costume Idea I found everything second hand or had already owned. The hair is mine, thanks to having it long I was able to crimp it and spray it green. The hat was probably the most difficult to find used. Brand New at least $30.00. My hat was just plain black, I ended up adding a longer scarf from my moms closet, some knitting needles, and small gold safety pins for decoration.

I found some tea gloves from the second hand store and cut the tips of the fingers off. The jacket is actually a girls Guess coat, also from the thrift store, that fit just right. The bow, Mom's closet again. I really have a lot of thanking to do to my Mom, she also pulled the whole look together with doing my makeup. The pants, you guessed it- Mom's closet! My inspiration came from Tim Burton's Alice and Wonderland!

Homemade Mad Hatter Costume

Homemade Mad Hatter Costume

Hello!

We had a Halloween costume contest at the office, and I made my homemade Mad Hatter costume just the day before with a foam hat, the top of the hat is made of carton and some lace painted in green that I found home. I put everything together with staples (yes, just staples!)

I got the pink scarf from a dress, and the rest of the outfit just normal clothes I had at home. The hair is just china paper, scrolled and pasted to the hat. I added some spray to have it stick out like that.

I bought some face-paint, and that's it!! It cost me less than 10 bucks... and, by the way, I WON! first place, yeah.

Happy Halloween

This Mad Hatter DIY Halloween Costume is a mix of all kinds of things, striped sock and old shoes from Thrift store. I really studied the costume to get little details like the silk scarf and the ribbons.

I made the thread belt from old wooden spools and the jacket from scratch. My favorite was the make up. I did purchase yellow contact lenses. I found hat pins at a antique store.

I had lots off fun with this costume .
