Lilian Chapman

The theatrical costumiere Lilian Chapman sent us the pictures you see of a Mad Hatter outfit she made  In her words:- “I’m a costume designer and maker, working for the last 30 years in Film Theatre & TV Here’s a few photos of my Mad Hatter costume, I made a version of Johnny Depps’ costume for Comiccon, (an event where people dress as their favourite character from film, tv and comics) I’ve tried to make everything myself and used up-cycling, using clothes from charity shops and scraps from my fabric collection, I’ve enjoyed working on this as I love doing research and millinery is a favourite of mine.  By the way ,the large bow was hand painted as I couldn’t find a decent “All sorts” fabric.  I wore this on April 27th at the NorthWales Comiccon at Glyndwr University in Wrexham".
