I’m Not Sure About This Hat

When my parents brought my sister (age 12) and me (age 15) to England for a few weeks in the summer of 1997 (I think? The 90s are already blurry), the giant novelty plush hat was very much in vogue. My sister bought one with a giant union jack on the front of it, and I think it’s probably still hanging in all its black velour glory in her bedroom at my parents’ place. Well, to be honest, shape wise, it looked like this:

The Tip Top Topper crochet top hat from Lion Brand

The Lion Brand website says “This whimsical hat is fun for everyday or for your Mad Hatter Halloween costume. ”

With the STEAMPUNK! of everything, I can imagine displaying this hat in black or brown (not blaze orange), and on a guy wearing a waistcoat, not on a lady who’s wondering why she’s wearing it. And if you wanted it to be a Mad Hatter hat, wouldn’t you go with something that looked more like a recognizable pop culture Mad Hatter hat? I will concede that the hat is the same colour as Johnny Depp’s hair.

I wouldn’t make it in blaze orange, and I don’t think I’d ever wear it a peacock blue blazer thing, but I kinda want to make one!
