Smile Fran's Toad Hat

Hello everyone! I was just wondering how do you make Fran's Toad Hat. Right now I'm just curious about the process of creating the hat. Have A wonderful Day!

Maybe making it with chicken wire would work. I made my Hibird cosplay by molding a big round shape out of chicken wire, coating it in paper mache, and making a big cloth covering for it, Frans hat is sorta the same shape as hibird, so maybe that would work.

@Eluna: Thanks I'll keep my eyes open too!! I'll send you any information, if I find anything.

@tips: Hmm chicken wire, sounds like a good idea. Might have to give that a try! Thanks for the idea! ^__^

I'm not planning a Fran cosplay, but I searched deviantART for a bit and found a tutorial that might help.

Hi, everyone! I made my own version of the hat and wrote a pretty in-depth tutorial on how to make it. I hope it helps for future Fran cosplayers

Basically I took a giant bouncy ball, marked it out, smothered it in vaseline, and created a base from plaster strips. Then, I reinforced it with a couple of layers of paper mache (basically I just used a mix of Elmer's glue and water for this).

Attaching the eyes was a big thing of trial and error because I had to put the thing on my head and see where the eyes would go. I marked those spots and then I curved long, narrow strips of paper to make the points where the eyes came out. Then I cut long oval pieces from paper, stuffed the eyes with stuffed animal stuffing and then attached those to the curvy extensions on the hat.

I stuffed the hat with that same stuff and then put in an old bucket hat. Attached that with hot glue, and reinforced the edges with black pleather. Originally I was gonna use the pleather for the hat itself but it frustrated me to no end. I ended up painting it instead. ^^;

And this was the end result:

It was a lot lighter than I thought it would be and it stayed on well, even when I was
bent over getting my butt kicked by Bel-senpai. c:

If anyone wants me to explain a little better how to make this, please feel free to ask questions. ^^
