Steampunk Aviator Cap - The Skyfarer by ShoriAmeshiko Steampunk Aviator Cap - The Skyfarer 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, hence why we've got fox ears here.


This one features black-tipped fox ears with a wing motif (painted in metallic lavender) on each side. The outside is purple suede with cream minky lining.
