My husband wants to be the Mad Hatter for Halloween, so we're making his entire costume pretty much from scrap. We went to a costume grave downtown and found a cheap top brain protector that fit him. Here's the before
I took some of those sheets of craft foam and made the crown taller and wider, then glued it onto the base of the brain protector. I covered the whole thing with three by three squares of the same plaid we're using to make the pants, and added the ribbon band and card.
I really like this part.
Ok, so here's the whole costume:
The only thing we didn't make on his were the shirt and the shoes. On mine we bought the shirt, but stenciled a skull and flowers on the shoulder with freezer paper.
And because I really liked my butterflies:
Happy Halloween, everyone!
