Day 493 / Hat 493: Yellow, red and orange stylized flame-shaped headpiece composed of 95% polyfoam and 5% plastic. The plastic part is a small battery-powered contraption that's supposed to light up some part of the fireball but I'm not sure exactly which part since I was kinda moving fast on to get this stealth snap.
Although it's technically called the Chris March: Big Fun Light-Up Flame Foam Wig, like the pieces from the Chris March Target collection I featured in the Project in the run-up to last Halloween, I'd be hard-pressed to consider this a wig proper. (In other words the flame doesn't violate Project protocol.)
Here's the description from the retailer's website:
"Light up the room—literally—in this blazing Chris March Light-Up Flame Wig. Made of durable, lightweight foam, this sky-high flame wig feels comfy and cool while making you look hot hot hot. With light-up features, this scorching headpiece in red, orange and yellow is the perfect topper to your unforgettable Halloween costume, whether you go as a big-time firefighter or a clumsy flame-throwing hibachi chef. One size fits most."
Given that I'm prone to impulsivity and the occasional temper flare, I thought it appropriate. But you know what they say -- leaving a flame unattended for too long is never a good idea.
I think it totally makes me look hot ...

Q: OK, nice hat -- but what exactly is Project Cubbins, anyway?
