Carmen Miranda Hat Answered
I am attempting to be Carmen Miranda for Halloween, and there is surprisingly very little on the inter-webs on how to make a Carmen Miranda hat.
I am thinking about trying to paper mache a base, something that resembles a witch hat, from which I can glue/wire fruit on it, and wrap a scarf around the base. But I am worried that this will be too flimsy and/or not stay on my head.
Can anyone think of a good base that I could potentially buy from a craft store, or Halloween store? I was thinking a Dunce hat, but I think that could be too high.
Any feedback would be appreciated.
PS. I am anti chin-strap.
