I'm just obsessed with Alice in Wonderland, so this year for my birthday, I'm throwing an Alice-themed party. (Twenty-five years old, and I still love to play dress-up.) I, of course, will be the Queen of Hearts. Maybe I'll even make tarts for my party...



Here's the action shot. I may try to get a better one when I have some daylight. I'm curious as to whether switching out photos is allowed for these challenges. Any thoughts?

Thanks so much for looking! Everyone's crowns are amazing!!

Thank you both!

I almost forgot to mention the materials: wire hangers, epoxy, fabric, & thread. I may add ribbons, too, so that it stays on my head a bit better.

very cute Smiley

love it.

You could put some loops near the base so you can just use bobby pins to hold it on, instead of a ribbon tie.

Great tiara - looks like lots of fun!

I'm 35 and working on my costume for the Harry Potter book party!
(For the 5th book party my friend (40's) and I were interviewed and in the paper because we dressed up and didn't bring kids)!

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.
