This is really neat: I found out about it through a friend on Facebook.

Have you ever wanted to make a hat for a costume but didn't know how to make it? Here is a tutorial from ThreadBanger and Victor Osbourne:

Awesome, right? I would have never thought to use insulating foam as a base for a mould. And I've visited Hats by Leko and I'm in love. I now know were I'll order all the hat bases for the numerous projects I've been wanting to make, including Tricornes and of course, a Beauxbâtons School uniform flower hat!

Clémence Poésy as Fleur Delacour, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005)

To make that hat though, I intend to by the Flower Hat Shaper (from Hat Shapers).

Well, I'd love to stay and chat about headwear, but I have an Irish Dance dress to make (and a teething baby who won't let me work on it all that often).


  1. Hi, I would just like to ask how this hat turned out? (Fleur's Hat, I mean) I am looking to buy one, and I was wondering if you would make me one?

  2. Same question as Isabelle, actually!
