I have a top hat, now what?

So I have a top hat. 1) What can I pair it with for Halloween that isn't some outlandish character*, and 2) how can I wear it on days that are not Halloween and not look like I'm (trying to) dress way up? [more inside]

Glowing light bulbs in my hair: help me wear this piece of art

Help me create a functional light bulb crown! I saw this amazing sculpture at an art walk this week, and I'd like to make it into something wearable for Burning Man. My guess is that I can start by buying this type of bulb, but I need some advice beyond that. Wiring type and strategy? Batteries? How about affixing them to my head? I have long hair and could do something creative with little buns - I want to secure everything in a minimalist way (no baseball hats) so that the focus is on the lights.

“If a woman rebels against high-heeled shoes, she should take care to do it in a very smart hat.”

I want my halloween costume to be (primarily but not exclusively) an elaborate hat, and I want to make it. I have two and a half weeks, and somewhere between $25-$45 to devote to things to put on the base hat (I have a free and/or inexpensive source for various kinds of hats, and so am not factoring that into my expenses). I want it to be clever, to be ridiculous like Marie Antoinette and her wigs, and I want it to be something I can wear all night. What should I do? [more inside]
