In order to create a Queen of Hearts costume for Halloween, you will need the following:

  • Red wig
  • White eye make-up, blue eye shadow, red lipstick, black eyeliner
  • Crown & scepter
  • Corset
  • White collared shirt
  • Navy blue 19th century dress
  • Gold fabric
  • Gold costume jewelry
  • For extra credit, collaborate with a friend dressed as the Mad Hatter, or Alice in Wonderland!

A couple years ago, I painted my face green and went as the Wicked Witch of the West — it was a total blast and I got great feedback for very little effort!  It just so happened that I bumped into a lovely little Dorothy at the party which made for a terrific photo op.

Makeup artist Kandee Johnson has a stellar Queen of Hearts make-up tutorial that includes making her eyebrows disappear!
