SKET Dance Bossun hat?

What material would be good or appropriate to make SKET Dance's Bossun's hat? Did anyone use a specific pattern, or is there any patterns for this hat that anyone can suggest? I noticed few people have cosplayed this, but i'm hoping there is someone here who can help me figure this out.

I'm really a total rookie when it comes to cosplay and sewing, so any help would be appreciated!

Here are a few reference pics:

If anyone has any better reference pics of his hat, please feel free to send them my way as well.

Any help is appreciated!

Bossun hat

Hello! I actually cosplayed as Bossun this past Otakon and it was a lot of fun to do so. Because I am tall I also cosplayed as Mori-senpai from Ouran Host.

Making the hat was really easy. What I did was took an old cap and cut the visor part from it so what I had remaining was the top part or the dome. I then went to Staples to buy a RED book sock cover. I just folded the sock in half so that one side would have the two corners of the cover sticking up (the ears). Plop it on top of the hat an walla. Your done. I also cut out two cone shaped cones from cardboard to help the ears stand out. I will send a picture as soon as I find them. All you really need to do is have the book sock and hat and the helmet is really easy to put together. I hope this helps!

Feel free to add me on Facebook if you need more tips!

Thanks for responding! One more quick question if you don't mind. Where did you find the buttons and the wristband? I'm looking all over for them.
