I made this hat in the few hours I had left after finishing my castlefest costume.
I cut the raw form from cardboard and glued it together. I drawed the design for where the beads would come on the tafetta, on both sides of the black brooche. Then I sewed on the the beads and tafetta, and glued the tafetta on the hat. I also glued on a pin so I could easily attach it to my hair!
The white dreads I wear where handmade and partially installed by moi!
