Actually, the hat isn't really heavy at all. It's plastic and cardboard underneath the fabric. And amazingly it stays on my head without any help. People are surprised it isn't pinned or clipped on. Though I'm going to hate testing that theory on a breezy day. lol
Everyone's costumes came out so great! I think my favorite thing though, is your hat! I wonder how heavy it was...did it feel good when you took it off? LOL Also, I love Elk's weapon. It came out really awesome. Again, Excellent job, all of you.
