This hat is the latest in my steampunk series of hats. I designed this one more with a man in mind but, it could work for the right woman as well.
I was inspired by the Borg from Star Trek the Next Generation. I used a bunch of old computer parts, circuits, coloured wire and some plastic tubing to embellish the hat. A pair of welding goggles adds that traditional steampunk element to the front of the hat. A fabric hat band, braided trim and a spray of burnt orange feathers provides a dose of elegance and panache to the finished piece.
I am very happy with how this design came together and its new owner can be assured indeed of having the one and only hat of its kind in existence!
