Halloween is only five months away, and it’s never too early to start thinking about what you’re going to be. If you’re thinking of going as something literary this year, you can’t do much better than a character from Alice in Wonderland, so we’ve rounded up the best Alice in Wonderland costumes for adults and kids alike.

Few characters are as whimsically fantastically and instantly recognizable as Alice, the White Rabbit, the Queen of Hearts, and the rest of the crew. Of course, you also don’t need to wait until Halloween to dress up – maybe you have a literary party you’re throwing, or you just want to shake things up at the office.

And there you have it! Lest you start to worry that making any of these costumes is impossible, I’ll leave you with the Queen’s words:

“Alice laughed: ‘There’s no use trying,’ she said; ‘one can’t believe impossible things.’

‘I daresay you haven’t had much practice,’ said the Queen. ‘When I was younger, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.'”
