One of my first assignments for the costume committee of girl child's play Alice in Wonderland is to make a couple jester hats. The Internet is surprisingly bereft of jester's hats patterns for sewing. So I made up my own.
They still need bling'd (which is what happens to everything made for the stage) and I haven't decided if they should be stuffed and shaped yet, but here they are, with both possibilities for comparison, modeled by the kids. I feel they should have bells on them also, but that may cause unnecessary noise on stage, so I'll have to wait and see what the director wants for that also.
I swear most of the fun of making stuff is forcing the children to put it on afterwards and smile.
Boy child, why you so serious?
No, seriously. You're serious.
This is funny, you know.
Side view. Try not to laugh.
First one to laugh is a rotten egg.
With Halloween coming up, I was wondering if I should do up a little jester hat pattern and tutorial for the masses. What do you think?
