I have made a hat.
I wanted it to be unmistakeably Irish, but also kinda cosplay-ish and more feminine than your typical leprechaun’s hat.
I used a thing called créamousse (no idea as to the translation to that), which is basically flexible material often used in cosplay, and glued and sewed felt over it.
All it needs now are a couple of hair clips to be glued (or sewn, perhaps) underneath so I can pin it to my hair.
The woman who taught me how to do this has won cosplay competitions. If you’re into that kind of stuff, check out Shun Geek on facebook. She’s amazingly talented.
Now I’m going to sit and marvel at my own abilities.
