      I'd get a kick out of dressing like Johnny Depp's Mad Hatter character for Halloween! I actually have an appropriate hat for it and a vest that would work well. It would be fun playing around with the make-up for it!

      Johnny Depp is so great at these crazy characters, and I just love this one. It would take a lot of work, but would be fun. Not too keen on his other characters for costumes though.
