My New Top Hat! With a little Steampunk Fashion

I have always wanted a top hat but honestly I have a huge head, no seriously I really do (please avoid the silly comments ;) ). It has always been hard to find myself a hat let alone something as hard to find (locally) as a top hat. So one morning I decided "you know, I can make all these things. Might as well give it a shot." I looked up some history on top hats to try and get it accurate as much as I could with the materials I did have. So about 5-6 hours from the "I'm going to try" I had myself a new top hat that was very oddly ME. and frankly I think it looks awesome! :)

So After it was done I found myself a ribbon to spice it up

But the real addition were the goggles. Honestly, top hats always seem to look better with a pair of goggles on them. :)

 Here it is on my head to give you a basic size idea. Besides I actually ended up wearing it all day anyhow.

 Liked this Picture so much i decided it should become my new picture for my blog, My YouTube, My Etsy, and even my Facebook Page

Please comment let me know what you think of my new hat :D 

Also please let me know if you would be interested in a custom made top hat if there is some interest I may start making them for sale.
