Great for a Mad Hatter costume as it has all the detailing sewn in (10/6 tag, fake peacock feather -- I replaced with real one, pink ribbon, and patch). When it was adjusted to the largest velcro setting it fit my small/average head perfectly and was a little too small for my husband's head with the orange wig on underneath it. We pinned the hat to the wig and had no problems running around all night. The hat totally completed his outfit! Very nice detailing and weight. Order it so it will arrive a little early because as others have said it's a good idea to reshape it for a day or so with some stuffing (we used a sweater).
Not only was your service amazing but the quality of my purchase was exceptional. This hat made my outfit!!!! I received a ton of compliments. It was soooo comfortable to wear in spite of its huge size. I LOVED it! And so did others!!!!! Great price too!!!!!
I found this hat online, fell instantly in love, and ordered it pretty impulsively. I plan to be the Mad Hatter for Halloween, so I ordered the hat fairly early considering how long other online orders have taken... but I got it really quickly! I was pleasantly surprised. The only bad thing is there are really no excuses to wearing it before Halloween. It is currently on display in my room...just waiting to me worn on the big day. Great purchase-- no regrets!
Fast Shipping, loved the hat was much more then expected.
product as described, the only thing I wish is that the peacock feather was real. Also fits kind of tight.. beware if you have an unusually large head.
I'm from Australia so ordered with a touch of hesitation. Wow, how impressed was I, my order arrived packaged to perfection and the goods were even better than described on the web site. The quality of goods was second to none. I would not hesitate to order again or recommend to family and friends. Thank you to the team at Buy Costumes
I did not know what to expect as it was my first order...I was absolutely delighted with my new hat. It is for a red hatter society madhatter tea party. I took the idea from somebody else of replacing the peacock feather with a real one but only because I just happened to have a few lying around I am also adding a tiny little tea cup and some blingy hat pins. I do a lot of costumes and will for sure be checking here first. and thanks for shipping it so fast
Hey there, I'm from germany and ordered the hat for Carnival. Very fast delivery (1 week) with no problems at the borders. The hat is very lightwight and fits perfectly over a wig. If you don't want to wear a wig you can reduce the size inside the hat. I fully recommend this product!
We bought this for our son's 18th birthday - sort of a fun, lighthearted gift he'd wear or take many photos of the hat in various places. It was a huge hit and made his day. The hat was exactly as shown but better. We followed someone's advice and removed the cardboard peacock feather and replaced with a real one... way better now! Don't hesitate - get it!
We based entire costume around this hat and loved how it turned out!!
This hat is a great value, and I would have kept it and replaced the very fake-looking paper peacock feather had it not been crushed in shipping. I tried to get it to regain it's shape, but it never did. Also, you can't really tell from the photo, but the peacock feather isn't actually a peacock feather, it's a piece of cardboard (that looks very fake in real life) sewn on to the hat. Easy enough to replace with real peacock feather, but I returned the hat because it was quite rumpled. Great refund policy, BuyCostumes.com at least will take stuff back easily, so it's very low-risk.
People are saying that the ribbon was frayed, well, that's how it looked in the movie.
Great hat just like the movie. Only complaint is that it isn't as stiff as it should be. Fast delivery & price seemed reasonable.
This was a great hat purchase. We made the rest of our costume but couldn't have made near the quality that this hat gave us. I highly recommend using this hat as part of your costume!
This is a great hat! just what i wanted! the only thing i have to complain about is that it was shipped in a flat box so it wrinkles down easly even after strechting it out
I was very pleased with the quality of the hat, however the ribbon around it was very poor quality. It only had fringe on one side and it frayed very badly!!! All along the sides and the end that didn't have fringe. It definitely left much room for improvement!
nice product, looks nice, needed to fill with newspaper after deliver because hat is devlivered flat, but stands up nicely after.
I received sooo many compliments on the Mad Hatter Hat. So happy I purchased it and so Happy it was a big hit.
This is a great hat. If you need a Mad Hatter hat, this is the one to buy. And it's budget friendly too!
Purchased for teenage grandaughter, fit was fine, quality was fantastic. She was thrilled. Materials used seemed to be top quality. Feather was cardboard, but look realistic. (I changed it for a real one!) Will store it for use again or donate it to a theater group at her school, worth keeping.
Loved the hat. It met all my standards. My daughter loved it. Looks great and fit great.
The hat is very cool, it has a way of fitting it to different sizes.
This Mad Hatters hat ended up being much better then the ones i have seen at the store. I was worried because i couldnt touch and feel it but it ended up meeting my expectations.
I absolutely love the new Alice in Wonderland ... and I absolutely lovvvve this hat! I'm dressing as the Mad Hatter for a Halloween Party, and normall I don't buy 'costumes' i piece stuff together to make it original.... but I am so glad i actually bought this hat! If u are on the fence about it.... GO FOR IT you will not be disappointed.
the product is fun and my kids got a kick out of it! i where it for crazy hat day, and Halloween. I like how it looks exactly like the movie hat. the only thing that would make it better, is if johnny depp had autographed it! :)
The hat was great quality other than one flaw. The ribbon around the hat is orange and in the movie it is pink. I modified the hat but removing the orange ribbon and getting pink fabric from a fabric store to create a more realistic movie version of the hat.
Very nice product for a reasonable price.
I was more than pleasantly surprised with my Mad Hatter's hat. I had walked in halloween stores and saw similar hats and one that actually looked like the one I just purchased from BuyCostumes.com and thought OMG this hat is ugly and cheap. I was so concerned I was getting this same ugly hat. My daughter called me and told me my package arrived and said the hat was awesome. Got home and wore it all night. Now I have to make the rest of the costume to go with it. The fringe on the scarf was a little frayed - could have been finished off, but that's ok. Love it.
This hat is wonderful. Looks just like the movie version. Well made and the adjustable fit works perfectly. Only down side was it was a little crushed in transit, but we fixed it by filling the top with a few of the air bags that came with our order. My husband says he's leaving them in because it makes the hat look better.
We ordered this hat for a bookweek parade for my son. Leaving it to the last minute as usual. The hat arrived in Australia within 3 days of being ordered which was fantastic. My son loved the hat and he looked great. Thanks for the prompt efficient delivery, made my life so much easier.
I purchased 3 of these hats to use for an Alice in Wonderland themed wedding, July 31, 2010. The guests were invited to a Mad Hatter's Tea Party as the reception. The hats were used as center pieces with ivy, silk butterflies and mix/matched tea cups and suacers filled with candy or flowers. I also had some other top hats and a variety of tea pots as well. The bride and groom were blown over how pretty everything looked and how much fun the tables were. Also the hats were a hit with the guests who tried them on for many a photo op.
Great hat! Got it for my daughter. She hosted a 'mad hatter' tea party and had all her friends wear costumes. The hat was the hit of the party! It will be part of her halloween costume this year also.
I bought this hat hoping for something really over-the-top, something deserving of the "Wonderland" association, boy did this hat stand up to the challenge! I'm from the UK, I was worried that I'd not get the hat in time for a party, ordered late on Tuesday night and I had it in my hands by Friday! Amazing delivery - yes it's expensive to the UK but boy is it worth it! I've made a Mad Hatter's jacket to go with it :) Only thing I have changed about the hat is adding a real peacock feather instead of the paper one. Loads of compliments, loads of fun!
Company shipped the hat fast. No issues - hat was of great quality.
This was my first purchase from buy costumes. The whole process was quick and easy. Love the product! I will purchase again and tell all of my friends!! Thanks
The hat is great! Wish Sash was a better quality.
Went to a mad hatter bar crawl party. Got compliments all night long and at the end of the night a guy came up and told me 3 girls tried to get him to steal it off my head! I have a large hat size and had no problem wearing it for the 4 hour bar crawl! The interior is adjustable for smaller craniums.
I just love the hat... its original and different and I wear it all the time. Its a great conversation starter and attention getter, and im all about being the center of attention! LOL
i love the hat. great service. i used it to go into school and read poems to a kdg. class as the Hatter . they loved it.
This hat was a hit at a costume party I went to recently. Many people commented on it and wanted to try it on. My transaction went very smoothly and the hat arrived the next day even though I hadn't paid extra for overnight delivery. Very pleased overall!
This hat is amazing, i would definately recomend it to a friend. It really stands out, it just like the one off the movie. It would fit most heads. a 10 out of 10
love the hat - read a review that it was indented due to being folded -I remedied that by stuffing it with the pillow plastic that came in the shipping box - lightweight and forms the shape of the hat..highly reccommend the hat !
This is a high quality item. I was happy to see that it has an adjustment strap in it, because we all know one size does not fit all. The only thing that I found disappointing is that it ships flattened. But I stuffed it full of newspaper for a couple of days and it seems to be holding it's shape. A little more cartoonish then I thought it was going to be, but not bad.
Love love LOVE it! The hat is quite big, which is good because I have a boof head (has adjustable headband for smaller melons). The fabric is great - it's kind of a satiny-brocade finish - looks great. The peach ribbon is shimmery with fringing on the end. The 10/6 and the peacock feather are actually cardboard, but you can't really tell that unless you touch the feather. Super pleased with this purchase.
This hat tied the whole outfit tougher. had an Alice and Wonderland theme party to go to and only four days to put a costume together. the one thing i was missing was the hat. Well found it here worked great and they got it to me with in two days right in time for the party
The Hat is very big, which is very good. It has a life like feature, but didn't stay very true to the movie. There are a couple things sticking out of the ribbon, but that's it. The coloring is kind of off, it's suppose to be green. Another thing I had a problem was, is the shipping style. It is squeeshed to the point where I can't straighten it out, because of the matirel. However, the detail is very good, and over all I love this product.
Well made. Very realistic to the movie costume. Nicely priced. Has a adjustable head band to fit your head. Awesome!! Fast delivery.
This is a great hat. Everyone who has seen it loves it. It's made good too. It will last for a long time. It's quite big but great!!
