Lewis Caroll wrote Alice's Adventures In Wonderland and Through The Looking Glass. These two novels fell under the theme of nonsense literature, where authors began putting a play on words, expressing their imaginations, and creating memorable characters with distinct personality. The Mad Hatter is no exception to this genre. He made its first appearance when he and the March Hare tried to sing for the Queen of Hearts-she then sentenced him to become decapitated! Getting in trouble with the law, having pompous riddles, and bright orange hair are all things that stand out when thinking about a Mad Hatter costume.

Mad Hatter Costumes

You can't miss the big curly burnt orange hair-or the oversized top hat. Hatta, was made popular by a few other appearances too. The fun thing about dressing like this character is that it captures both fun and whimsical as well as awkward and creepy.
