Steampunk Aviator Cap - The Assassin by ShoriAmeshiko Steampunk Aviator Cap - The Assassin by ShoriAmeshiko
This is a style of hat that I've been wanting to do for AGES. It started with me doing a fleece version to get my feet wet Steampunk Critter Hats by ShoriAmeshiko
It was inspired by kind of a steampunk Catwoman kind of notion -- I think in an alternate history her headgear would most definitely be an aviator cap with cat ears.

The idea just evolved from there, becoming a suedecloth cap (because while I like leather, I like suede even more, and suedecloth is washable) with minky lining (because minky is amazingly soft), and painted side panels so I could introduce more design elements to the whole deal. I also tried out different colors for variety and fun -- I've always thought steampunk can be loads of different colors if you play it off with the right motifs and design elements. The ears started as a tribute to Catwoman but animal hats are kinda what I do so I ran with it, which is why I have long rabbit ears here. Plus the idea of a bunny-eared assassin seems so incongruous and cute >w<

This one features long pointed bunny ears with a skull motif (painted in black) on each side. The outside is burgundy suede with black minky lining.

i just wanted to praise you for your amazing hats, and i bought one myself! it looks like this one, but with fox ears rather than bunny ears (they were sold out) im no good at writing though, heh ^^;

Your hats are amazingly well made and incredibly soft. They are also fun to wear and make a good cold weather accessory (its pretty cold where i live right now) and even when its not cold, its fun to wear. I feel almost blessed to have one as well as only a few other lucky people out there. i, i was speechless when i got mine and i still love it (i got it in June). I love the designs and you hats are absolutely FABULOUS!

i hoped you liked it even though i cant type. i love your hats!

I just wanted to stop by to say that I just received my Aviator cap (not the one showed here), and I love it! :heart: Thank you! 
I wanted to make a proper review on Etsy, but I have to wait until July 3rd. I didn't want to wait until then :meow: I love it and will definitely get another one (but not right now because I'm very broke ^^; )

Will the customization options be back in the future? It seems that they've gone from your "Steampunk aviation cap" section atm...
Another question: will you do any more of those "big" bunny hats, like this one? -> Cyberbun Hat by ShoriAmeshiko

Aww ;o; thank you so much for the kind words, and I'm so glad you like your hat! ♥
You're right though; the custom aviator caps are sold out for the time being (because I used up all the fabric x3) I hope to restock with more of that fabric as well as restock the extra-long bunny ear hats as soon as I can :D
It might be a few months, because I have more fabrics I want to make use of (like faux fur for plushies!) before I by new fabric, but it's definitely my highest priority ^-^
