Cosplay costume contest; Need Ideas for Cheshire Cat Bag (24 hours)

I have been working non stop on my cosplay's for an upcoming local comic con. I just read the rules for the costume contest and a little side note says that there will be a prize for the best "coin bag" (Basically one of the things people do at this con is they get a coin when they come in and whoever they like, they can give that coin to as a vote).

I am going as Cheshire Cat and I am trying to think of some kind of bag I can make, Alice in Wonderland related (preferably) that I could use as a bag to collect coins and stuff.

I thought about making a "pocket watch" style purse or something like that.

Any other ideas??

The reason this is under "emergency" is because the con starts Friday, so whatever I decide to do has to be done by Thursday, so it needs to be started today or tomorrow.

Thanks!

A top hat and bag in one?

I like the idea of a teapot, or a teacup, or cupcake shaped thing, or anything tea-partyish?

Can you get a clear plastic purse and then use fabric or ribbon to make the cheshire cat's stripes? Then make a head and tail - the tail could even be the handles or strap of the purse, depending on which way the cat is facing.

hey everyone! Thank all for your help, I kept meaning to come back here and post a picture and keep forgetting. I did end up going with a teapot idea.

The Goodwills in my state have 25% off everything on Monday's so I found this awesome teapot/cup set, and painted it the way I wanted.

I know I'm supposed to lock this after the emergency has passed but I want to show you all the teapot so I'm leaving it open so I can! haha

moneyzorro - You should try and go sometime, they are a lot of fun :) Five Night at Freddy's has gotten so huge so there are always a lot of characters around. Personally, while I've played the games, I'm not quite sure what all the hype is about... but it could just be because I've only played it on my ipod touch haha
