This was our very first cosplay for San Japan Anime Convention in 2010. We were very proud of ourselves as we had worked very diligently. We modded out most of the clothes by finding items from our local goodwill and the little sewing we did was very basic, and very beginner. It’s good to look back and see how far we’ve come as a group.
The reason I picked this cosplay was because I’ve always been a fan of the Mad Hatter from the books, to the films. I’ve also always been a huge fan of Johnny Depp and Tim Burton, so when this film came out, I knew I had finally found the costume that would begin my cosplay journey.
The hat was actually from an awesome tutorial we found online from this group called threadbangers.
We wore the costumes again for All Con Dallas in 2011. However, this costume is currently undergoing a re-design, and will be re-made for Wizard World San Antonio 2014.
