Here's the story: I'm going to make my hat for Halloween this year. I'm going as the Mad Hatter. I'm making my hat because all the hats I find are way out of my price range. Here is where you lovely people come in. I don't know what kind of material to use, where to get it, or even how to make a hat! Could you be of help? Please and thank you!

I made an oversized top hat a few years ago for a very silly Blueberry Muffin costume... I used a few sheets of thin foam from the craft store, cut out my shapes and whipstitched them together, then covered the whole hat in a layer of thin batting and fabric.

You can see my messy stitching at the underside of the brim here, but you get the idea.
