Girl on Fire.
Flaming cocktail hat

Milliners of Etsy team Movie Hat contest entry June 2012.
The brief is to create a hat inspired by a movie, and we can use any movie modern or old, to inspire this hat, it can be plucked straight from the costume set or inspired but the general feel of the movie.

Update: Finalist MoE Movie Hat contest.

Girl on Fire is inspired but the movie The Hunger Games.
Katniss Everdeen is nicknamed "the girl on fire" after the costume made for her initial team entrance into the Capitol from her home in District 12 following her volunteering to enter the Hunger Games in her sisters place.
Each team has to be dressed in an outfit inspired by their home district, and as District 12's business is coal mining, her team stylist creates a synthetic flame which will burn around her costume during the parade around the city, making her stand out above all the other contestants.

Flames of Red, Orange and Gold lick around an Old Gold wool felt mini hat.

Adorned with hundreds of different colored metal scales, more commonly used in chainmaille, each one hand stitched in place and overlapping to create a burning inferno look as they catch the light when you move.

Hand blocked from wool felt using traditional millinery techniques involving steam and wooden hat blocks, and finished with a wired brim edge to maintain sturdiness.

Can be worn tilted towards the front of the head in a jaunty manner.

Measures approx 4.25" - 11cm in diameter.

Held in place with a metal comb underneath.
