I think this is absolutely the best Mad Hatter costume and characterization! It's so detailed and well done... Incredible Did you make the whole outfit yourself? I'm actually quite curious about the hat. Apart from the great hand work, did you have a structure for the hat? Or was it just done with the fabrics?
Welcome! Now that I look at it more, Hatter could either be really pensive, or struggling not to freak out a bee that's a little too close to his face...he's in a garden, afterall :3 Again, luv itttttt
Oh one the best cosplay to Tarrant iīve ever see! Even if you made some different parts on the outfit i really love it And iīm most impressed by the way you got the hat O_O What did you do for it? And just one thing (even if i know its for the contest XD) i donīt like XD Its the beard on your chin XDD
Its amazing OO really, cause i watched the close up of your hat.. And sadly the most of people forget that the pattern of the hat are "swaged"... I really adore you for this!!! Donīt tell me, your job is to be a real hatter?
I would like to point out incase anyone was wondering that I did infact make this entire costume. Somebody suggested that I purchased Items from a professional but this is untrue, I have been perfecting this costume for a Little over a year now. Colleen Atwood, Costume designer for the film, has been my personal Idol since I was 14 and I aspire to be as talented as she is someday. I dedicate this picture to her and her brilliance.
It's funny to read some of the other comments on other people's work. Not to bash or criticize anyone else's work, but they complain how they spent hours on their drawing.. You spent a whole year making your costume and then the photographer spent a while editing the photograph. I like several of the other entries, but your's is soooo awesome because you actually did the work to put yourself into wonderland. Ten thumbs up Chadrificus
This is one of the best Hatter costumes I've ever seen...and I've seen quite a few. Congratulations on being in the semi-finals! How very exciting! I like how you altered your eyes to make them larger, and I love the blur-effect on the background. It's a beautiful image. Would you mind terribly if I were to use this sometime as a reference for a drawing of Hatter? I would credit you, of course ^_~. I just really love the perspective, and also how much detail you put into the costume and the lovely surroundings of the rose garden. It's like he's just standing there, worrying about not really being "real", but only a figment of Alice's imagination, half-mad as she may be...he's still rather perturbed. Very nice <3.
Hm, well I would do that for free, but I'm incredibly broke...so you'd have to print it out yourself, I'm afraid...or I could make it into a print and you could buy it from my print gallery XD. Especially if you win one of the prizes, then you'll be in the money ^_~.
I just really adore Depp's Hatter, and I think you did a great job with the costuming and choosing the setting, angle and pose for your picture, and it would make a nifty drawing ^_^.
Alrighty then, well, I'll keep you posted ^_^. How 'bout you watch me and then you'll know as soon as I upload it?
I adore his Hatter...there's just so much depth to him, so much more than just "Oh, this guys is nuts LOL". He's wonderfully erratic, and that Scottish accent he's got (but only when he's angry) is friggin' hot XD. I love him <3.
