I made this Queen of Hearts costume in two days. I bought a few decks of cards. I bought a large red dress at a thrift shop. I bought a short black wig. I made the collar out of cardboard, a wire and three decks of cards. I also took Christmas lights that are battery operated and sewed them into the skirt. I bought the accessories and made the wand out of a stick, paper and glue.

The costume was very well received! Plus all night I spoke in a British accent, ordered people around and said “Off with their heads” as often as possible.

The make up wasn’t that difficult. I just googled ‘Queen of Hearts’ make-up, I used black eyeliner, red eyeliner, blue shadow and white face paint.

It was fun to make and even more fun to wear.
