A word from Angela, the 'Mad Hatter' costume creator:
My 5 year old daughter Téa is wearing our version of The Mad Hatter. My idea just came from watching Alice In Wonderland and seeing this insane character in action. I went thrifting so I could upcycle clothing and make adjustments to make it similar to the original character. I added ribbon to the pockets, lace fabric to the sleeves, I made the thread sash with 2pks of small singer thread and a long chain I purchased at Michael’s. The gloves I made with old plaid fabric I had laying around. The hat was made with poster board and cardboard. An old stretchy fabric I had worked perfectly. The rim of the hat is wire, the faux hat pins are small wooden dowels painted gold and I glued on old buttons or jewels on top of them. Peacock feathers where from Michael’s as well. The bow tie was a shirt I thrifted, cut up and made a bow out of it. Pants I sewed to fit and made them flare at the bottom, I drew with pen on the pants a flower pattern and just went over it with a thicker needle and thread to create an embroidery look. Boots are from target. One sock was from a thrift store and the stripped one from Dollar Tree. Makeup is all by Mehron and the wig was an Amazon purchase. I also made the hat scarf with fabric and added tassel to the end of it with a piece I purchased from Joanna's! Oh and last thing, I purchased the tooth block out to create a gap from Party City.https://www.instagram.com/myaangelaphotography/?hl=en
