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.
