Here's my 12inch Mad Hatter custom from Tim Burton's Alice In Wonderland,
His head is a Johnny Depp base head from a custom figure site, the shirt was a DID shirt, I dyed it pink and sewed lace cuffs in,
All his clothing was hand sewn (coat, socks, kilt, waistcoat, tie), his hair is lambswool.
His buttons, pins, gloves, bandolier, thread spools, peacock hatpin, jeweled hatpin, sporran, scissorholster, and scarf on his hat were all handmade. His pocketwatch was from a Napoleon action figure, I cracked the crystal open so I could paint the watchface and reseal it, the watchfob and toggle clasp were handmade and linked to the chain.
The hat, shoes and interchangeable hands are from a Medicom Hatter figure, and have been completely repainted.
The sword is also a Medicom accessory.
I definitely need to invest in a better camera, the detail I put into this is really quite ridiculous. I even lined his coat! There's 6 pairs of tiny scissors on his belt, and a tiny gold pin in his ring! I even painted the tiny people-in-hats on the buttons of his waistcoat! He has real pockets! And fuzzy eyebrows!
For this project, I went a little crazy. I have never, ever made a custom with such a complicated costume or had so many fidgety little details to contend with.
Never again!!!Aaargh!
I hope my efforts were worth it in the end!
Thanks for looking!
