HOLY DOOLY THAT IS ONE BIG HAT :U
From what I've heard craft foam seems to work well, so maybe get some of that and paint it black/paint on other details? Considering it's 'foam' I think it would be pretty lightweight... however I think wearing it in the sun might be a pain, with the black-absorbs-heat thing c:

I'll be trying to make a Fran hat/helmet out of layered insulation foam, y'know the pink stuff. That's the only thing I can really think of, unless you made a big stuffed vinyl hat or something.
