We’ve Got The Secrets To Being The Mad Hatter or Red Queen For Halloween (You Won’t Believe What You Need)!

By   |   October 19, 2016   |   Dish!, Entertainment

Hi Divas! This past weekend, we spent some quality time with costume designer Colleen Atwood, the mastermind behind the looks for Alice In Wonderland (2010) and its sequel Alice Through The Looking Glass, which came out on Disney DVD, Blueray and Digital HD yesterday!


Ms. Atwood, who won an┬áOscar for her whimsical designs in┬áWonderland, gave┬áinsight on her inspiration for this latest trip down the rabbit hole. She explained that she was influenced by┬áthe original Wonderland┬ásketching in the original book from author┬áLewis Carroll, and Disney’s previous animated incarnations. She then ┬áshared how one could recreate the costumes from their newest film, just in time for Halloween.

For the Mad Hatter (pictured up top), “Do a vintage coat with striped pants and a hat with a scarf around it, that would probably easiest,” Ms. Atwood┬ásuggested. Try these┬áBrigitte Bailey Allison Striped Pants.┬á”Of course you need the hair and makeup,” she added.


To recreate the Red Queen, Ms. Atwood admitted it’s a little more challenging. “Try a crazy big skirt with a [cinched in]┬áwaist and exaggerate┬áthe┬áhead,” she advised. We like this chiffon skirt┬áfrom CiChic.


Of course, we had to ask her about real-world applications of her Through The Looking Glass┬ádesigns, including Alice’s amazing pea┬ácoat.


“It would be a beautiful coat to have… there are a lot of maritime-influenced coats out there right now this season,” Ms. Atwood said, adding that she hasn’t been approached to do one (yet!).

We’re so hoping that Disney considers creating a Alice-inspired ready-to-wear line. Until then, we can┬ámake do with this mid-priced similar look┬áfrom Guess.
