A word from Andrea, the 'Mad Hatter and Queen of Hearts' costume creator:
The Mad Hatter is my boyfriend and I am dressed as the Queen of Hearts. The inspiration was Alice in Wonderland, Tim Burton movie.
Mad Hatter: A cardboard box cut into shapes and glued together to form his hat. I then covered the hat in material and mad the pins out of wire, the wig is orange hair which was glued into the hate. His coat was a an old green coat which I trimmed in brown and sewed lace into the cuffs. I then painted on this coat with gold/black/brown to give it a distressed look. I cut many ribbons and a pink scarf and sewed them into the pockets of the coat. His face is painted with white makeup and eye shadow and I glued orange hair onto his eyebrows. (It took an hour and a half.) The spools of the are laced together and tied around his body. The Queen: I bout the red fabric and made the skirt and cut out gold hearts and glued them on and trimmed the hearts with red glitter paint. I then trimmed the skirt with gold/black/red ribbon. The top part of the dress is made of black pleather, sewed many different ribbons down the corset and the top it lined with red hearts. I cut a black long sleeve shirt to make the sleeves and sewed them into the corset. I glued red ribbon and red hearts and gold dots onto the sleeves. I sewed lace into the cuffs. I then sewed a shimmered fabric on the sides. The crown is made of cardboard and covered with gold fabric and hearts glued in and glued to a red headband.
The overall cost for the costumes were roughly $40.00.
