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.
