This Homemade Original Disney Queen of Hearts Costume is my version of the original Disney Queen of Hearts from the animated movie. The crown is a beer can that I painted gold and my hair is held up with a q-tip. The earrings were created out of wooden decorations and also painted gold. I made the paddle with extra thick craft foam, self-stick felt, and a wooden dowel.
The dress was entirely made from scratch combining 5 different patterns; one for the collar (which didn’t turn out exactly right, but I am planning on re-enforcing it), one for the neckline, one for the bodice, once for the sleeves, and finally, one for the skirt. The hoop skirt was purchased and modified to create a more bell shape. The pantaloons were made from a purchased pantaloon pattern.
This took me about 2 months to create with the help of my mother and sister. This was by far the most difficult thing I have ever made.
