14th July 2010: Post Cruise Madness Loved The weekend in London it was immense! Hatter was semi complete so it'll be a beta test verion. I'm happy with how the coat turned out still wish I coulda bought one but it was impossible to find a brown coat like his. Things left to do on the cosplay are:
Line the coat & add real pockets!
Change the ribbons dangling down to the right ones
Add a proper sash to the hat
find/make the hat pins
find/make the clasp on the peacock feather
make brown lace gloves
attach long pink frilly lace to the cuffs of the shirt
take the collar in of the shirt
line the sash and print liquorice allsorts onto the underside
find the right colour mens boots
make a waistcoat
re-do the button holes on the coat
find some white face paint.
3rd June 2010: Why is a Raven like a Writing Desk? /o/ Wow after expo I'm just reaming with cosplay energery!
| There were 2 Hatter's at expo and they were both breathtaking! I hope that
/ \ I can get mine to look as awesome! I ordered the wig for hatter today I need to start looking for a pink shirt and pink lace for his ruffled cuffs, I'm watching a brown men's coat on ebay so fingers crossed that I win it! it looks really good and its only £4.99 (inc.P&P) I've decided that my budget for Hatter is £50 anymore and he's just not feasible especially with all the other cosplay I want to do over the Summer!
There's still one thing I can't figure out for this costume and that's where the ream of thread spools ends.. I can't find any picture of Hatter that aren't from the front. i'm gonna have to borrow the film off someone =/ ohwell lol
The hat I've made is only a base (it needs fabric but I can't find the right brocade D: I only have a month to do this cosplay!)

do it! Can't wait to see it plus it'll be epic since your taller then me so we would make a cute couple lol :P
even if I wasn't taller than you that hat is gonna give me some height D= I hope I get through doors without having to crouch ... because if Kita Sat night was anything to go by I wont pay attention to door ways .. I would want to lose my hat!

Major kudos on the showcase! You totally deserve it ^_^. This looks amazing. The hat is absolutely gorgeous; I love whatever fabric you have used for it.
Don't think I've ever seen a female Hatter before, but you really pull him off.
Your Alice looks gorgeous too >.<

I want to thank everyone for the lovely and awesome comments! I'm really proud to have been showcased (never thought I would) but I must say I really owe it to Gaming_Goddess for being my amazing and beautiful Alice as I doubt the photo's would have been anywhere near as effective without her! And also I owe a huge credit to Shirak (www.shirak-artwork.com) for taking these stunning shots. Without either of those two amazing people I doubt I'd have made it to showcase :').
Wow I feel like I just wrote a speech xD. Anywhoooo Thankyou everyone once again!
My__RoadOfBlood - 29th March 2011
Wow you both look amazing! :) I love the pictures!
Your costume's accuracy is brilliant, as is your Alice's!
