In this post, I will talk about the building of the hat.

To build the hat, I first created a model with a thick sheet of paper. This is easier to cut and to work with. I cut the thick paper with common scissors until I got the desired shape.

With this model, I proceeded to cut the PVC film the MagicHat will be made of. The PVC film is a good compromise between the flexibility required to make the hat look "human"

Finally I placed a baseball cap inside the hat to make it more comfortable to wear
