Hi well i watched the 2009 remake of the Alice films, gotta say, pretty freakin kool. well anyway, i want to do a hatter cosplay, hes played by andrew lee potts. and i have one good pic of him but i need help finding a shirt that may work well for this.
Heres a pic of him: http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k188/RazorXCore_2006/hatter.jpg
obviously hes the one on the left here.. its hard to tell what his shirt really loks like but but it looks like a reddish brown, with some kinda gold designs on it. if anyone has ebver seen a shirt like this or knows where to get one and can tell me, thatd be awesome.

Also..That hat? i have never seem one like that in a store. if anyone can find that either or at least tell me what its called so i can look it up thats be awesome too
thanx in advanced

It looks like a fedora. As for the clothes, ebay and thrift stores might be your best bet. Particularly places that have a lot of 60s and 70s style clothes.

You might have a difficult time, but I would look for burgundy/dark brown and gold paisley designs.

I don't know if this will help but this is a bit of a better picture of his shirt:

i'd say also check the quilting dept of your loacal fabric store, they might have something similiar if you're REALLY lucky, but it wont be as silky as the shirt looks in the show

an indepth look into the characters costumes- scroll down a ways till you reach the Hatter section, apparently they even found a place to buy the shirt fabric. Hope this helps too.

Good luck!
