Help with Snufkin cosplay
This will be the first costume I will have ever made. I really want to do a cosplay of Snufkin from Moomin/The Moomins.
I was going to start off by making the hat. I was hoping to make one a bit like this: http://www.downsizer.net/gallery/23461/Snufkin+hat.jpg
Could anyone please tell me what materials I should use and how I would go about making a hat like this?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for reading this.

Looks like felt to me, although you could probably use a blanket fabric too.

Both of those are pretty absorbant so you would want to line the inside where it rests on your head. Using interfacing or something sturdy as a liner of the cone would also help to keep the shape, and stop it flopping.

The simplest way would be to make a cone for the main body, and a hollow circle for the brim, and sew together.

You could also use your favourite search engine and look for tutorials in making wizard hats (particularly the "Gandalf" style)

However I would seriously recommend making some mockups in newspaper to get the shape, and fit, just right before you buy any fabric.

One advantage of felt is that you can pull it into shape if its not quite right (but not too heavily as it can split!)
