Parents of steampunk and "Alice in Wonderland" fans rejoice — we've got the perfect costume for your kid.

Yvette Manes shared photos of her Mad Haute-r costume on the TODAY Parenting Team, and explained that the beautiful look she created for her daughter is the perfect mix of items she picked up at the store and DIY.
