Just a wild folly I've decided needs to exist, The Ludiculous Skytop Zeppelin Hat is a neo-victorian flight of fancy...
I created the hat from scratch using white faux leather and then painted it with the sky motif as a backdrop for a small model airship I built from kitbashed toy pirate ships and a few extras added on like the dieselpunk engines. I also sewed the balloon together from the same fabric as the hat, stuffed it with plush, and painted it tan. Then, I wired everything together and added a fine black and white bow to accent the piece.
This is a celebration disguised as inappropriate millinery, and yes, it is wearable! More pictures are found in my Flickr stream:
Happy new year to everyone, and may your greatest dreams come true in 2008!
