I just couldn’t wait to show all of you these pics. of my grandson.
They’re having an event at T-Man’s school called “War, Peace, and All That Jazz.” This event includes a five page essay and a costume contest. Your costume can be either a real or fictional character from a certain time period.
After much costume consideration…..
Meet the Mad Hatter!
Heather put her heart and soul into this costume, I’ll tell ‘ya! It started with four hours of thrift shopping to find the perfect clothes. I wouldn’t have thought a pair of plaid men’s pants and a ‘70’s style corduroy jacket still existed ANYWHERE! But she found ‘em!
She painted the detailing on the pants.
The original Mad Hatter had gray hair. She couldn’t find an orange wig (a la Johnny Depp), so they went with the old style. The hat was perfect, and only $10.00 at a local costume shop.
She made every single hat pin and all of the other detailing.
The gold detailing on the vest was sponged on. And the lace was sewn on the sleeves of the jacket.
She found the mini spools of thread at Michaels and strung them with jute string.
She and T-Man spent lots of time researching every little detail of this costume and all I can say is………….
Heather, you did an absolutely amazing job! Good luck to T-Man tomorrow.
