Steampunk hat with googles by akinra-workshop Steampunk hat with googles by akinra-workshop
Hi there! Here is the first (yeah first!) steampunk hat made by the workshop.

Vegetable leather of 2mm, hand sewn.

Embossed with gears, first dyed with brown and then darkened.

Frist googles too.

I worked it so it will look likes a little bit aged. Not worn, but I want it to give the feeling of a hat that have already lived.

Available as a custome order here : [link]

This is a sensationally designed piece of clothing/apparel. Though I can see it more worn with clothing as the partial or full extent of being a costume. What's interesting is the subtly applied designs of metal gears and toolwork pieces. Amazingly enough, this houses a close resemblence towards clothing by specific characters from fairy tales and video games. With the leather housing the vegetable basis, you can clearly see the time and extent paid towards getting this work properly done. You have to have had a very dull childhood, away from tales and games, for you not to hold some sort of positive connection with this type of work. There are a few minor details that I would personally add in, but such things are not looked for by all. Still, if such could be applied, then I would definitely be aiming for the purchase of this for an exceptionally wonderful Halloween costume. Squenix(Square Enix) fans should nod with joy over this.

Awesome work. I must ask, though. For the custom order, can you get additional features added to the hat? Not anything crazy, just small design additions to allow for further originality and connectivity with a character's similar piece? I'm asking for the hat and goggles.

Still, great piece. And, I like it a good bit. Fav'd, as you should know.

Thanks you very much for the watch, the critic and all.

Of course, the hat can be modified by your will. The best way is to send me a picture or a sketch.

Wow, you are really awesome. THANK you. And, certainly, I have to be honest with my view on things. So, know that it isn't fake fluff I type in regards to your work.

When I get the money situated, I'll be sure to get everything set and drawn for what I'd like. I don't want you to have to hold that info, and then wait on me to get my financial situation squared away. Thank you, once more. Truthfully, the honor was mine to partake in seeing the work.

I have a friend who would go more insane than he already is if he got his hands on this. I WANT IT, and I can bet you the he will want it fifty times more since he would probably wear it DAILY.

I can make him, or/and you, a custom hat that will fit your dreams, if ya want ^^
