Beginnings Of A Mini Nut ‘n’ Bolt Hat

Starshine’s costume will be topped with a mini top hat, shaped like a hexagonal prism, i.e. a nut. I’m toying with the idea of leaving the top of the hat off. It’s still a work in progress but here are the pieces we’ve gathered for it so far.

If you’re curious (and I’m sure at least some of you are) I’m using fiberglass window screen for the hat. I have no intention of covering it with fabric. I will however, be covering it with fabric rosettes, the ribbon that you see here, actual hardware pieces, some metal pieces I got from a friend, galvanized steel wire and gold jewelry wire.

It doesn’t concern the same kind of ‘bolt’ but I thought this quote was quite appropriate for other reasons.

“No padlocks, bolts, or bars can secure a maiden better than her own reserve.” ~ Miguel de Cervantes
