This is version 1.5 because I made a few mistakes being this was my first trip into hat-town. Pretty happy with it, I must say.

Materials: wonderflex, resin, suede, model magic, acrylic paint.

I have a question.. How would I go about making a hat like this?
I want to be sally whitemane for a con next year and I've already started on her costume.

I just have no idea how to go about making a hat like this :( the general shape seems kinda hard.

Are there any tips you  could give me? I'd be more than grateful :icontearplz:

It can be tough to work with but it's one of my favorite materials. :) Give it a shot!

Thank you for saying what you used to make this! I've been thinking I want to make a Whitemane cosplay, but I had no idea what to do to make a hat.

Will do!
Presumably wonderflex is similar to worbla? Or is there any difference between the two?
Xero-Cosplay Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Wonderflex and worbla are both thermoplastics. The main difference is that wonderflex has a mesh imbedded in it to keep it from pulling apart when heated. However, since worbla does not have that mesh, it can formed into different shapes and sculpted like clay when heated. I've had fair success with wonderflex but I'm excited to work with worbla because of it's ability to act like a clay. I'm not sure if one is better than the other, it might just be a matter of preference or the project at hand.

Sounds like you're right about it depending on the project. I look forwards to get my hands on some of each and experimenting! Many thanks for the explanation. :)
