AIBU to send DS into school wearing this masterpiece for comic relief?

My DS (4) has crazy hat day tomorrow for comic relief and I thought I'd be inventive and make him a paper mache volcano hat. Tinsel to be added to create a lava effect, and red paint also will be added for lava streams etc, and another coat of the brown paint but I'm slightly worried about the current effect. Does anyone else think that it looks slightly.....suspect??? blushgrin

Should I go back to the drawing board while I still have time and credibility?

Hmm you don't want him to look like a dickhead...

WorraLiberty Thu 23-Mar-17 11:26:20

As long as he won't be bothered by the chorus of "Good morning shit head!", it should be fine grin

Just joking OP. You've put a lot of effort in. I'm sure he'll look fab.

TaffetaMuttonfudge Thu 23-Mar-17 11:26:43

Haha, thanks both - exactly what I thought!!

Dontactlikeyouknowme Thu 23-Mar-17 11:28:10

I'm sure with some red lava painted on it will be fine.

ProfYaffle Thu 23-Mar-17 11:29:13

Can you add some trees/greenery to make it bit less - um - turd like?

Miniwookie Thu 23-Mar-17 11:32:16

grin I'm very impressed with the effort. Yes it looks a bit like a penisturd right now, but get some red and yellow wax crayons and melt them over it. Job bie 's a goodun!

I think even with trees and lava you might struggle to save it without a fair bit of effort! confused (Sorry!)flowers
It needs to be much wider at the bottom (I think the biggest problem is that it doesn't look volcano shaped).
Try to paint it in a slightly lighter brown too. At the moment it looks like sometimes been a bit constipated! grin

If it makes you feel any better you can totally get your own back on me in a couple of weeks when I have to make two Easter bonnets for school!! confusedblushgrin

Sorry, but one look at it and I almost spat my blueberry and lemon curd muffin all over the screen. Which would have probably resulted in a similar colour to the one in the picture, plus or minus a shade of purple.
It looks like a mummified erected penis.
But I'm sure with the added effects it will be all fine.

LanaKanesLeftNippleTassle Thu 23-Mar-17 11:40:26

mummified erect penis grin grin

I wouldn't put bushes at the base, it really won't help the rotten knob look!
Also wouldn't lava make it look like an infected mummified cock?
<nice thought there>

Can you make the base wider so it looks more "classic" volcano shape?
Then add some palm trees and then the lava??


LanaKanesLeftNippleTassle Thu 23-Mar-17 11:41:07

Have no idea where the extra 'the' came from!

emochild Thu 23-Mar-17 11:42:42

So just me that thinks it looks like a giant butt plug then?

slinks away with her dirty mind

BoBaraMoMara Thu 23-Mar-17 11:43:04

Sorry, it really does look like a rotten knob.

And I'm worried that if you put thing "spewing" out of it that it will look like a rotten knob trying to be revived.

Can you widen the base as others have said - make it more triangular shaped?

ohfourfoxache Thu 23-Mar-17 11:44:24

Wow, that's quite......something grin

TaffetaMuttonfudge Thu 23-Mar-17 11:46:01

Thank you all for making me laugh, actually have tears rolling down my face right now. I don't think it's saveable, but I shall complete it just for you lot.

I cannot send him to school looking like a gorilla's bellend.

MrsArthurShappey Thu 23-Mar-17 11:57:19

Placemarking for the photo of the finished article - it's looking pretty stupendous already!

FourFlapjacksPlease Thu 23-Mar-17 12:01:11

i am crying with laughter at 'penisturd' - thanks OP. This has made my morning!

WorraLiberty Thu 23-Mar-17 12:02:51

Oooh the melting of the wax crayons is a brilliant idea shock

AutumnalLeaves38 Thu 23-Mar-17 12:04:27

No, that'd be two of us, emochild blush


I applaud your efforts and creative vision. Truly.

But please reassure us doesn't issue forth with live bicarb+vinegar eruptions, too??? That may send my hysteria over the edge...

LittleFryingPan Thu 23-Mar-17 12:09:41

Placemarking purely to see the finished effort grin

EineKleine Thu 23-Mar-17 12:14:20

Oh dear.

Can you cut it? The top 3/8ths or so would be fine and the crayons are a brilliant idea.

Bluntness100 Thu 23-Mar-17 12:18:22

Actually I looked at it and thought " wtf is that" . I was imagining a little kids head poking out the top and their little legs out the bottom, with their arms neatly tucked inside.

I genuinely thought you wished to send him to school dressed like a little shit.😂

Took me a moment to realise it was a hat...

PageNowFoundFileUnderSpartacus Thu 23-Mar-17 12:31:14

That is immense. I think you should sell it to a Danish museum as Tollund Man's morning wood.

PoorYorick Thu 23-Mar-17 12:43:39


Oh dear. Suggest a paper pirate hat...

Please report back in 10 years OP when every last scarp of enthusiasm has been beaten out of you by countless world fucking book days and mad fucking crazy hat day
