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.

Will you be selling these as commissions once the giveaway is done? Like in case someone really wants one but didn't win the giveaway or was too late to buy one of these examples? o:
