My family doesn’t celebrate Halloween — instead, we go to the Fall Festival, an event run by my church. There’s lots of games, candy, and, of course, cool costumes.
When I started thinking about who I was going to dress up as, I immediately thought of Oswin from Doctor Who. However, I had nothing in my closet that was even remotely similar to her outfit, so I had to pick something else.
I looked around Chasing Fireflies for inspiration and found this Mad Hatter costume. I love weird costumes and Alice in Wonderland, so I decided to be the Mad Hatter.
Here is the costume I put together!
I suppose the costume could have worked without the black leggings, but I’m not a skirts/dresses kind of girl :)
I got the vest and shirt from Goodwill. The Johnny Depp version of the Mad Hatter has a large, loose bow tie, so I tied my mom’s plaid scarf around my neck in a big puffy bow.
My mom made me this awesome top hat out of cardboard! She tied a *cough cough* weird *cough cough* scarf around it and tucked two playing cards into it — one is the Queen of Hearts. (Heheh, get it? “Off with their heads!”)
I hope you liked looking at my costume!
What are you dressing up as for Halloween?
