Who is this Mad Hatter we speak of? He explains to Alice that he and the March Hare are always having tea because, when he tried to sing for the Queen of Hearts at her celebration, she sentenced him to death for “murdering the time,” but he escapes decapitation. In retaliation, Time (referred to as a “Him”) halts himself in respect to the Hatter, keeping him and the March Hare stuck at 6:00 forever. The tea party, when Alice arrives, is characterized by switching places on the table at any given time, making short, personal remarks, asking unanswerable riddles and reciting nonsensical poetry, all of which eventually drive Alice away. He appears again as a witness at the Knave of Hearts’ trial, where the Queen appears to recognize him as the singer she sentenced to death, and the King also cautions him not to be nervous “or I’ll have you executed on the spot.” Pretty scary, huh?
And you know the fraction on his hat? Ever wondered what that meant? That’s how much he bought it for. In this style 10/6. 10/6 means 10 shillings and six pence (or a half guinea), the price of the hat in pre-decimalized British money and acts as a visual indication of his trade.
Well, we know there’s usually a dilemma when it comes to picking costumes; To be or not to be a villain?
We make it easy for you, theres a unique dark side to everyone.
Why is a raven like a writing desk?
“Have you guessed the riddle yet?” the Hatter said, turning to Alice again.
“No, I give it up,” Alice replied. “What’s the answer?”
“I haven’t the slightest idea,” said the Hatter.
“Nor I,” said the March Hare.
Alice sighed wearily. “I think you might do something better with the time,” she said, “than wasting it in asking riddles that have no answers.”

The classic story of Alice in Wonderland was a blockbuster hit in 2010. The film, directed by Tim Burton, follows the story of 19-year-old Alice (Mia Wasikowska) who returns to the magical world from her childhood adventure, where she reunites with her old friends, such as the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp) and learns of her true destiny: to end the Red Queen’s (Helena Bonham Carter) reign of terror. While always a strong seller, the officially licensed Disney Tim Burton Alice in Wonderland and Mad Hatter costumes are expected to be a huge bestseller in 2010.
