    Greetings,

    Any advice on how to make Luna Lovegood's lion hat from Harry Potter?

    What do you think it is made of under the fabric?

    Thanks

    I personally would go the foam route and then use stretchable fleece to cover it...

    take care,
    Tommy

    I'm thinking fleece as well. This might be a fun hat to make & wear to cons.

    In the video discussion, the maker said that she used fleece but that if she were to do it over, she would use something else. I think the original is made of some velveteen-type material, which has a firmer strength than fleece. Next best might be double-thick felt, I think.
