This is my 12-year-old niece E. She's The Mad Hatter for Halloween. And she did everything except apply her Katy Perry Lashes by Eyelure.
For real, E came up with the concept for her Mad Hatter costume and accessories, styled her hair, and designed and applied her makeup all on her own. She also picked up those Katy Perry Lashes by Eyelure in Starstruck ($9.75, claires.com for locations), which her auntie cut into two to apply. (The "diamond-studded" strip is a bit stiff, which resulted in a fringe gap when I applied the inner section. But we loved the result!)
Confession: When I foolishly wondered if she was to be a Mad Hatter-ette, E pointedly reminded me, "a hatter can be a man or woman." As Liza puts it, I've been schooled! (I blame Johnny Depp. And Lewis Carroll.)
This charming watch pendant belonged to E's great-great-Aunt B.
Love how E tied that scarf (from Grandma for her birthday) in a big floppy bow. Also love that blazer, which her mum helped her acquire; she'll wear it again, with jeans. She finished her Mad Hatter costume with plum tights with black polka-dots; sorry they're not in my photos.
Little girlfriend has skills, right?? For Halloween, I'm a Proud Auntie. Maybe not just for Halloween.
