Whimsical Homemade Mad Hatter Costume

Here’s my handmade Mad Hatter Costume.  The only thing store bought was the wig.  I love any character that Johnny Depp plays!

I made the hat out of a cardboard box and sewed fabric on the interior and exterior.  The jacket I bought at a thrift shop and added the sleeve ruffles and the bird patch.  I hemmed a pair of old stripped work pants and made the bandolier from a belt and and my grandmas old spools of thread.  I added the colored ribbon to the pocket of the jacket.

I took an old suit vest that was really small and cut the seams, added lace to make the vest bigger so that it fit.  It took me about 2 hours to complete the makeup myself.  This is by far the favorite costume I have created.  Hope you enjoy.
