MAD HATTER COSTUME
Mad Hatter: We’re going with the Johnny Depp version, obviously!
What You Need:
– top hat with ribbon added
– cream colored blouse
– spools of thread
As you can see, I purposely left out super descriptive details from each garment. The thing is, as long as you get the color scheme down and the general silhouette, this costume is so easy to replicate. Every clothing item is from my closet. I made the thread holster by stringing thread spools onto yarn and draping it over my shoulder. The makeup is an understated version inspired from the original, but really easy to recreate. And yes, those are fake eyelashes as eyebrows!
Easy enough, right?
