'Test-driving' shapes?

This might sound really, really silly to some people, but with new customs laws to think about, shipping prices steadily rising, the ever-deflating dollar and euro, and the ridiculous strength of the yen, I started to really re-think slapping my money down for something I have never even worn, on a whim. So I started to think of a way to 'test-drive' head-wear before I went and payed for something that might not even suit my face shape.


Long story short, I have a short, SHORT hair-cut. Pixie-cut hair with bangs, but I want a bonnet, as I want to test the waters of OTT with an OTT Classic set. Since I know all of two other fellow ruffle-butts in this tiny town stuck in a 1970's fashion time warp, and neither of them own bonnets, I started to wonder how I could simulate the shape on my face, and that idea jumped to other lolita noggin-adorning items; Giant hair-bows, old-school head-dresses, flower corsages, ect. Has anyone simulated these things with computer paper, thin cardboard, or anything like that, just to see the shape on the head? I could easily hand-make a bonnet, but I do not want to commit the time and resources necessary until I know it will suit my face.
