A couple people have asked how I built my Kingdom Hearts Vivi Hat, so here's a quick tutorial on how I did it.

fleece would work as well right?
HoiHoiSan's avatar
Fleece should work too, though it might be heavier. :)

Oooh I'll try to make one, it's so awesome :XD:
With your Vivi cosplay, how were you able to see ? XD
HoiHoiSan's avatar
Ah, you see the red band around the hat? I made that stretchy and thin so I can see through that :)

No problem, it happens :)

I just finished the wiring and now I need to get together my fabric. Gonna reuse my golden fleece and I'm either going to cut up an old t-shirt or buy some red fleece. The circumference of the outer circle of wire is slightly wider than my shoulders. XD My brothers are gonna be so proud of me when they see what I've made!
HoiHoiSan's avatar
Cool! Good luck! I'm guessing this is for halloween :)
Sylanc's avatar
Yup, but I'm gonna end up making a Vivi cosplay now.

I hard to find a hot glue because I do not have it, is there any other tool that can be used?
I wanted to ask you something, are you glue the wire with the tool or tied up as usual?
are you ever make a magic wand vivi?
sorry if the english words is fall apart .

I'm gonna use that as a help to make another hat ( remember Stan form Monkey Island by any chance...? eah. Will cosplay him.). It will be a bi different, but this is really a great help, thanks a lot! =)
HoiHoiSan's avatar
LOL, if you do Stan from Monkey Island, are you gonna keep flailing your arms about too? :)

Good luck! I'd buy a boat from you :)

I will ;D At least most of the time... If I do it all the time, it's gonn kill me ;D But he puts his hands on his hips from tiem to time, too, so I'm gonna do that too xDD

Thank you so much xD For te luck wishing and that you'd buy a boat ;D

That sounds so fun, I'd go as Guybrush Threepwood. Probably the one from Monkey Island 2, I like his big blue coat, I could hide things in it :)

*laughs* Yeah, frei of mine does Guybrush ^^ She can't wait for me to be Stan XDD
Although she does the new version, the "Tales of Monkey Island" one ;D

I will definitely make one of these and wear it in public. 8D But I want to figure out a way to make it move like it did in the game . . . I'll do that later. Thanks for the awesome tutorial though!
HoiHoiSan's avatar
Yay! I'd offer to give you mine, it's sitting in my shed collecting dust. Maybe spiders too. :) It probably wouldn't fit either. =/
MikuruNyan's avatar
You should take it out and wear it randomly. XD It's fun~

When I make this (in a really long time X_X), I want to make it a bit tighter, so it won't look so wrinkly.
HoiHoiSan's avatar
It was actually the second time I made the hat, so I was lazy the second time around :)
