Alice in Wonderland is a classic story that has remained popular for many years. There are many characters from the book by Lewis Carroll and the movie produced by Disney that are suitable for making a quick and easy adult Halloween costume. You can keep these costumes as authentic as possible by referring to the illustrations from the book and movie while you’re creating your costume.
Alice in Wonderland Halloween Costume Ideas for Adults: Alice
You can create a basic adult Alice in Wonderland costume by getting a pale to medium blue dress with short sleeves and a short white apron. Wear white tights or hose, black pumps and put a black ribbon in your hair. Make a sexy Alice in Wonderland costume by wearing a very short blue dress with a lacy petticoat showing underneath. Wear thigh-high white stockings and garters and high heeled shoes.
Malice in Wonderland, Alice’s evil twin, is an interesting variation on this costume. Get a black dress with black lace trim and a small white apron. Wear black fishnet hose or black and white striped stockings. If your hair isn’t dark, wear a black wig.
Alice in Wonderland Halloween Costume Ideas for Adults: Mad Hatter
Find a slightly oversize pair of pants and long frock coat with tails. They can be any color you like, the louder, the better. Use wildly clashing colors and patterns to evoke the Mad Hatter’s personality. Get an enormous Mad Hatter top hat from your local Halloween costume store. Get a white button down shirt and a bow tie. To make your Mad Hatter costume look more like the Disney Alice in Wonderland movie, dress in conflicting shades of green, wear a white fright wig and put a large price tag reading 10/6 on your hat. Make your Mad Hatter costume complete by carrying a teacup and saucer.
Alice in Wonderland Halloween Costume Ideas for Adults: Queen of Hearts
To make a Disney Queen of Hearts costume, get a skirt made from fabric with gold and black diagonal stripes. Make a velvet top that’s black on the right and red on the left. Attach a long velvet overskirt that’s also black on the right and red on the left. Sew on some white faux fur trim on the edge of the overskirt. Also attach a white stand-up collar to the top. If necessary, buy an Elizabethan queen costume pattern to use as a guide as you work. Get a cheap plastic crown, a plastic scepter and long white gloves to make your Queen of Hearts costume complete.
Alice in Wonderland Halloween Costume Ideas for Adults: White Rabbit
Get some white pants, a long red jacket, a yellow vest and a black bow tie. Also find some fuzzy white slippers, white gloves, an umbrella and a plastic prop pocket watch. Get an oversized top hat and some costume rabbit ears. Remove the rabbit ears from their band and attach them to the front of the top hat with hot glue. After you’ve put on your White Rabbit costume, paint your face white, draw on a brown rabbit’s nose and whiskers. Wear wire-rim glasses down on the end of your nose.
