Gijinka Parasect help?

Hello. I'm a noob at cosplay. And I need help on making a hat... But, i never made one before. Well.. I'm planning on doing a Gijinka Paracest cosplay for next year, and i'm wondering how to do the shell(that will be the hat). What material should I use? And How should I sculpt it into the shape I want?
Thank you for reading! Please comment~

You might want to post a few reference photos, till then I can only give general advice.

As for hats, you have a few options. Alter and existing one, make a new one from scratch or commission one.
What ever you do use keep it light, your head will thank you at the end of the day. Model magic, fabric, and wire are a pretty good combo. Cardboard is also an option.

I've never done one, but my instinct is to try and use a light foam. I'm not exactly sure how to go about doing that, but it would definitely keep a good shape if you could figure out how to carve it. It might be a little hot, though. If you do figure out how to do the foam, I've heard that you can paint it with glue and let it dry in the sun so that you have a good surface for colored paint and it won't look like, well, painted foam.
