I was always a pan of the movie huge TROUBLE IN small CHINA. And also for this year 2016 I wanted to construct a costume based on one of the superordinary villain STORM "LIGHTNING"....

You are watching: Big trouble in little china hat

I was going come buy the straw cap from Japan however the price was $500 + shipping...which to be waayyy to much...

So I made decision to construct that cap myself out of cheap materials....so I figure basket weaving and also lots of patience must pay off...

Materials:

30 inch Christmas Wreath structure (I think this is an accurate measurement based upon an auction spec the the $3000 WIND Hat the was marketed a pair of year back) = $8.00 native Michaels with a 50% turn off coupon

20 packs of Raffia straw from the Dollar save at $1.25 each

1 bundle of twining = $1.25

1 spray can of irradiate Brown primer/paint = $6.00

1 laundry basket = $1.25
