Mini tophat in red tafetta and black beads

Rotterdam, Nethe...






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!

Created on: august 3rd 2007
Time worked: little over 2 hours

Material Notes

-cardboard from an empty cereal box
-red tafetta also used for my skirt
-black beads from a broken necklace
-brooche from a thrift store
