A Mad Hatter’s Tea Party

If you follow my blog regularly, you’ll realize that I started on the costume for a theme party – before even finishing off everything I wanted to make for the Viking costume I’ve been working on.  At the beginning of November I posted looking for ideas, and used Pinterest quite a lot to brainstorm ideas.

As I mentioned in my late November post about purchased costume hats, the party theme is a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party, and.. well. .. things didn’t go quite as planned.

A week before the party – I got sick.  I had hoped that it was just a normal cold, but I just couldn’t shake it, and even while sick I kept trying to finish off the costume so I could wear it to the party, but a few days before the party I was still really sick.  I’m going to still share some of the costume, even though now I haven’t yet had the chance to wear it.

If you’re reading this afterwards, you can read all the posts I (eventually) write following the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party category.

Pinterest Inspiration

In the meantime, feel free to check out my Pinterest boards. When I first started, I wasn’t sure which character I wanted to be inspired by. When the Tim Burton movie opened, I dressed up with a big group of people for the openning, and did a Steampunk Jabberwock – but since that costume wasn’t quite right for this event (it requires things like claws and wings that aren’t exactly working-the-party-friendly) I knew I’d need a new inspiration….

I divided my boards up into:


I eventually settled on sort of a Steampunk or Neo-Victorian inspired Red Queen.. who has borrowed the Mad Hatter’s hat. Hopefully I’ll have some interesting posts for you in the near future!
