I need a new head

No, not my own… at least, not really. This one; I bought it at a store called Rossy on St-Catherine eons ago and used it to hold up wigs and hats back when I used to sew for the stage. I’m pretty sure the day-glo orange spray paint is attributable to a production of Gilbert & Sullivan’s The Mikado. Are there any milliners out there who can recommend a new ‘head’? I’ve seen canvas blocks in a costume shop before, but I’ve never seen one for sale.

Anyhow… the beret’s all done, as is the pattern, which I’ll upload it in a day or two. In the meantime,you can see its details here.
