My oldest son Ethan, 6, was dressed as the Mad Hatter. He loved the new Alice in Wonderland so much he has been planning his Halloween costume since the movie came out.
For the Mad Hatter I used an old robe, shoes, and pants purchased from a local second hand store. For the spoons of thread I used my stepdad's mom's old thread supply. For the scarf just a small piece of fabric from a fabric store. The hat was mad from an old top hat covered with gold fabric and finished with a peach-colored sash (small strip of fabric from a local fabric store) and some old sewing needles and a peacock feather. For the entire costume I spent less than $15!

Contest Photo Tips and Guidelines:
- Avoid clutter. Keep the background simple -- your gingerbread house or holiday cookie is the star!
- Daytime, natural light is best. If your area is bright enough, try taking the photo without the flash.
- Upload a horizontal photo. If you crop the image on your computer, make sure you keep a landscape 4:3 aspect ratio.
- For best results, make your image 1200x900 (or "save for web").
- With a digital camera, you can take as many photos as possible and choose the best one. Have fun!
