This year I went as the Queen of Hearts from Alice and Wonderland. It was kind of my own version. I used an old bridesmaid's dress, and a red corset for the top.
For the belt I took a piece of elastic and taped cards to it. For the collar and cuffs I used an old red tie (taken apart and re-sewn) and coffee-filters to make the puffy-ness. They were layered on top of one another and made the perfect Elizabethian collar thingy. :}

You can't see in many of the pics, but I have a tiara on, and a felt rose that I made myself in my hair.

Hope you guys enjoy!

That is really classy! I saw a lot of Queen of Hearts costumes on Halloween but they were all pretty umm.. revealing and cheap looking. This is much nicer. Great job.

Yarn is my craft drug of choice
