My five year old daughter has crazy, curly, red hair. After taking her to see the new Alice in Wonderland movie she made her hair all messy and pulled it out to the sides saying "Mommy! I'm the Mad Hatter!". Her sister had already decided she was going to be Alice for Halloween so it seemed perfect that she be in a homemade Mad Hatter child Halloween costume.

I found a pattern that had an Alice and a Mad Hatter costume. Both were dresses, which was fine since we have a girl Mad Hatter. The costumes on the pattern were pretty plain though so I decided to alter them and pick some crazy mix and match fabrics. I added an extra fabric layer at the hem of the skirt, detailing on the bodice of the dress, and detailed accessories like the sash of spools, the ribbon belt, and the peacock feather in the hat. The hat we bought at a store but it had other Halloween embellishments glued on it. I pulled them off and added the pink ribbon, "In this style 10/6" tag, and peacock feather.

We did her make-up based on the Johnny Depp character and, while her hair was pretty close naturally, we added lots of very stiff hairspray and orange hair color spray to boost the color a bit. She has a fun and crazy personality so she was perfect for the part.

This year I had a Homemade Mad Hatter Halloween Costume Idea. The hat is made from wire, poster board, and foam core wrapped in fabric. The coat was dyed, the pants trimmed. The lace was sewn onto the sleeves. The shoes bought at a thrift store. The ribbons and handkerchiefs and bow tie were cut from fabric. The hat pins are bent wires glued with jewels from hair bands.

The make up took three hours. Complete with four different colors of eye shadow, colored contacts and false eyelashes dipped in white makeup. The eyebrows are cut pieces from the wig. The spools of thread were woven together with yarn. The gloves are hand sewn.

This Mad Hatter Costume is of my husband and I. Mine was store bought. He won first prize. We bought an Uncle Sam Hat, painted it black and added the scarf, peacock feathers and long pin. We also bought a cheap red wig and trimmed it. Using the trimmed pieces we glued eye brows. He also has yellow contacts to give a freaky effect. We painted on a gap between his teeth.

The jacket and pants were bought at Goodwill. We added buttons, lace on the cuffs and all kinds of materials coming from the pockets. We made the scarf and other accessories. He also wore yellow stripped stockings and pin stripped pants.
