This is a Homemade Queen Of Hearts Costume. The dress was purchased as a vampire dress but soon converted to the Queen of Hearts. The checkered pattern is a sheet from the thrift store that was cut and wrapped around the torso. The necklaces is made out of a deck of cards that have holes punched in them and are strung out on a string. The crown is made of the deck of cards as well, the cards are stapled together and the top cards are cut in a triangle than bent and stapled. The crown is stapled to the red hair which is a plain red wig. The wig was striaght so we curled it and put the hair into Thumbalina. Then stapled the crown on.
The makeup was done with a white base and then flour blown on top to finish it off. The lipstick is done in the shape of a heart so you always look like your pursing your lips. The eyeshadow is a light blue that you can get any time all year around. This outfit was a ton of fun and even got asked by a few different people to get my pic with them. I hope you enjoy the costume but dont forget if you dress up as the Queen of Hearts get into the character! Tons of fun!
My Queen of Hearts Costume was based off of Tim Burton's "Alice In Wonderland". It was made using several well loved gowns that I bought from a thrift store. The top of the gown was taken from an old velvet dress. I cut the sleeves off so I could wear another shirt underneath. The front of the top is actually the back of the gown. I cut off the zipper and hand stitched gold buttons so that I could have a corset-like tie in the front.
The skirt was made from an old prom gown. I sewed on a white panel from another old summer dress and attached gold hearts. I then outlined the hearts in pearl ribbon and outlined the white panel with gold ribbon. The makeup was done by myself. The crown was bought at a local holiday shop and was jazzed up using rhinestones and a little magic.
