Steampunk Aviator Cap - The Pirate by ShoriAmeshiko Steampunk Aviator Cap - The Pirate 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.

This one features a squid motif (painted in silver) on each side. The outside is black suedecloth with dark gray minky lining.

Seriously, once these do come out on Etsy (or by some chance I get one in the drawing), I'm not gonna know which one to get. |D They're all really cool.
