Of all the things on this costume, this was one of the last things I thought would give me a hard time, but I'm about to start crying over it because I CAN NOT get it to work out.

As you can see in the second picture best, her hat is basically a very exaggerated pirate hat, but with the middle cut out so her hair can come through. It's not just a headband, and I don't want to make it like one.

I've been fighting with craft foam to try and make the basic shape of the hat, but no matter how much i cut and tape it together at different angles, all it wants to do is be like a cylinder on top of my head, or pull to the front and stick out there like a unicorn horn. I can hold it in place to the sides, but as soon as i let go, it all leans forward again. It does not want to puff out to the sides at all, and it's driving me crazy. I need this done in less than a week, and I didn't think it was going to be this much of a problem. ;_;

Help? Anyone? Any ideas?

Maybe cut the foam at an angle and then glue it, or discreetly put a few stitches on the inside to pull it into a more oblong shape.

Aaahaha... I actually just figured it out, and it's so incredibly simple i want to hit myself.

I turned the foam in the back so that the 'out side' is in against my head and now it sticks out all nice and poofy.

Nothing like 3 days to a con to send you into a panic. -_-; Thanks for your help though <3
