fusrodesu asked: Hey!! Your cosplays are super great aaa /)u(\ I really like your Nonon Jakuzure!! I was wondering if I could ask how you managed the hat? Generally I think I know how, but I'm not sure about how to make the indent the monkey skull sits in. I understand if youd rather not explain or anything tho. but yea your guys' httyd cosplays are great youre both beautiful aaaa
Thank you so much! I feel so bad when I try to explain how we make things via text. I try to explain very clearly but its so confusing. We hope to introduce a series to our YouTube channel where we explain how things were made (not tutorials just a breakdown). So for the base of the hat I used an actual marching band hat purchased from ebay. I created the extra length by using worbla. I just heated the worbla and wrapped it around the original hat. For the indent the skull sits in,
I just eyeballed where the center of the hat was and cut a U shape that measures 4 inches long at the top of the U. I then covered the worbla with the same light blue material I used for the dress. I got the fabric to stick to the worbla by spraying Scotch Super 77 multi- purpose (spray) adhesive. When using that spray less is more. The top is just craft foam covered in fabric and hot glued to the base. I hope this helps. As always, good luck!
