The hat is made from carbonated cardboard and covered in green printed curtain fabric, i glued patches of odd materials on parts of the hat and tied a scarf above the brim. The top of the hat is hand sewn, the brim-machine sewn.I wrapped kebab sticks in gold christmas streamers to give more detail to the hat.
The outfit is mostly things from my wardrobe, and the spool of thread sash is made from spools of thread and a large stand of yarn. I used white face paint, and Rimmel & Make Up Academy eyeshadows. I painted a layer of red on the orange wig to make it more like the real thing.
Happy Halloween!
