Alice – The Adventurous Heroine

Alice is the heart of the story, and her costume is both iconic and simple to create. Inspired by the classic tale, this costume is perfect for any little girl or adult who wants to step into a world of wonder.

To start, find a simple blue dress and pair it with a white apron. Don’t forget the white tights and black shoes to complete her look. A blonde wig with a black bow will give the perfect Alice finishing touch, making you instantly recognizable as the beloved character.

DIY Tips:

  • Thrift store finds: Look for a blue dress and white apron at local thrift shops. You might be able to find an old dress that you can repurpose, or even some fabric to sew your own. Check out this DIY Alice Dress Tutorial for step-by-step instructions.
  • Accessories: Add a pocket watch for a whimsical touch. This accessory nods to the White Rabbit and adds an extra layer of authenticity to your outfit. You can find inexpensive pocket watches at costume shops or online.
  • Blonde hair: If you don’t have blonde hair, a wig works great. Look for a blonde wig with bangs and style it with a black bow headband to capture Alice’s classic look.
  • White apron: You can either purchase a white apron or make one from a thrifted white pillowcase or sheet. Simply cut to size and add straps that tie around the waist and neck.
  • Shoes: Black Mary Jane shoes are ideal, but any black shoes will do. You can even use a bit of black fabric paint on old shoes to get the right look.

Final Touches:

  • Makeup: Keep the makeup simple and fresh. A light foundation, a touch of blush, and some mascara will give you a youthful and adventurous appearance. For an extra touch, you can add a small heart-shaped beauty mark near the eye.
  • Props: Carry a small bottle labeled “Drink Me” and a faux cookie labeled “Eat Me” to add a playful element to your costume. These can be easily crafted using small glass bottles and cookies decorated with icing or markers.


  • For more inspiration, consider watching scenes from the animated “Alice in Wonderland” movie or the live-action versions. Pay attention to the details of her dress, hair, and mannerisms to fully embody the character.

Creating an Alice costume is a fun and rewarding project that can be customized to fit your style and resources. Whether you go all out with a handmade dress or keep it simple with a few key pieces, you’ll look every bit the part of the adventurous heroine from this timeless tale.

Mad Hatter – The Eccentric Tea Party Host

Mad Hatter costumes are a fun way to let your creative juices flow. Known for his zany style and love of tea parties, the Mad Hatter is a character that allows for a lot of creative freedom. Start with a top hat, a mismatched suit, and an oversized bow tie. Add some crazy patterns and vibrant colors to truly capture his eccentric style. The more outrageous, the better!

DIY Tips:

  • Thrift store finds: The thrift store is your best friend for this costume. Look for a variety of suit pieces, such as a plaid jacket, striped pants, and a colorful vest. The key is to mix and match patterns and colors that clash in the most whimsical way.
  • Costume accessories: Use a glue gun to attach fun details like ribbons, buttons, and lace to your clothing. You can add these to the hat, jacket, and even the pants to create a more elaborate and personalized costume.
  • Top hat: This is the most iconic part of the Mad Hatter’s outfit. If you can’t find one that suits your needs, consider making your own. You can use felt or cardboard to construct the hat, and then decorate it with ribbons, cards, and feathers. Check out this DIY Mad Hatter Hat Tutorial for detailed instructions.
  • Bow tie: The larger, the better! You can make an oversized bow tie using fabric and stuffing, or buy one from a costume shop. Opt for bright colors or patterns like polka dots or stripes.

Final Touches:

  • White wig or orange hair spray: The Mad Hatter is often depicted with wild, white hair in the cartoon. A white wig can work, but for a more authentic look, use orange hair spray to mimic the vibrant hair seen in many portrayals of the character, like the live action Johnny Depp version. 
  • Makeup: Go for a whimsical makeup look with bright colors. White face paint can serve as a base, with pink or purple eyeshadow and bright red lips. Don’t forget to add exaggerated eyebrows and a bit of blush on the cheeks for that mad look.
  • Props: Carry a tea cup, saucer, or even a teapot to emphasize the Mad Hatter’s love for tea parties. You can also add a tag to your hat with the classic “10/6” price tag.
  • Gloves and shoes: Add a pair of mismatched gloves and brightly colored shoes to complete the look. Check your local thrift shop for unique finds that can be adapted with some fabric paint or accessories.


Watching Johnny Depp’s portrayal of the Mad Hatter in the live-action “Alice in Wonderland” movies can provide additional costume and makeup ideas. His character’s whimsical and slightly chaotic appearance can be a great reference point.
