I'm still doubting between a bowler or a top hat. I think a top hat might be easier to make, and both variations seem to occur.

Wrong gender, but i think this can serve as inspiration:

The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

Early bowler hats were tall like stovepipes, but over time they became shorter. If you watch Orson Welles' "The Magnificent Ambersons" the opening of the film actually actually contains a brief history of the bowler hat:

The Magnificent Ambersons (1942). Restored opening.

Looking very cute! Although is it a custom in the low countries to display captured leprechaun's heads on miniature steaks? Roll Eyes

Yours,
Miranda.

Here in the Colonies, we serve our miniature steaks wrapped in bacon.

Looking good.
The extra bulk in the chin area has made him look a bit older and reduced the "cute" factor a bit... although he's still cute. Smiley
Have you tried using Super Sculpey before. It is much easier to shape and blend than Fimo is, but really only has a couple of colours so needs to be painted. Fimo looks perfect for this project, but if the sculpture bug really bites give Super Sculpey a go.
