A friend and her daughter had decided to help another friend and make him a matador costume for the Kenton County Fair Spanish Competition on Saturday. They came to a problem. The cape was pink and I gave them the witch's cape that we had from a past Halloween. It was red on one side and black on the other. They needed a matador's hat. I said I would try, no guarantees. There are no patterns for a matador's hat anywhere to be found and I did not write this up as the bumps on the side were not great. But it happened and she is happy with the hat.
