Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Bat

See Me In My Little Hat

This was not a project for class, but it should be known that besides being interested in the “traditional” arts I am also crafty ( in the scissors and glue sticks sense of the word). Two weekends ago, my school had a formal dance where the theme was “Mad Tea Party,” You Know Alice and wonderland. I decided to conserve money this year by wearing dresses I already owned. I thought, since the theme was Alice in Wonderland, That I should have fun and go in character.

It should be pointed out at this point that the dance was not a masquerade but I did my costume in a  very elegant manner.

The whole night people were concerned it was going to fall off or over while I was dancing.

I engineered it atop a head band that is hidden underneath my hair. Needless to say my Mad Hatter costume was da bomb.

The only part of the costume I bought were new earrings. Yes, that means all the things that compose the hat are found and household objects.
