Galactic Pussy

So far, I’ve completed two repurposed military hats:

  • The Pink Power hat
  • The Galactic Pussy hat

Now, first let me say I know what you’re thinking.

You’re thinking these are some pretty out-there hats. And you’re right!

They are some pretty wild hats.

But they’re designed to be festival hats. To be worn when you want to stand out, not so much to shade yourself from the sun, although that is an added benefit.

Here is a collage of the pieces that will make up the Pink Power hat:

My other hat is The Galactic Pussy, so named because I bought a purple sequin pussy cat with a lot of attitude to go on the top of the hat. The purple kitty reminds me of my friend Renee and just seems like the perfect top for a galaxy themed hat.

hatIt occurs to me that “Galactic Pussy” would be an EXCELLENT playa name. I fully expect whoever owns the hat to adopt that nickname. Awesome sauce!

So where do I get my inspiration for these hats? It usually comes to me from something I see online – an awesome scrap of ribbon or a really cool applique. The rest of the hat gets designed around that.

I already have a Bollywood hat and a UV Reactive hat forming in my mind that I can’t wait to get started on!

 

UPDATE:  The purple kitty is no longer available.  Sad face.  What do you think of this?
