Hats I made five years ago...





I stumbled across these when I was bored last night and wanted to see what the oldest emails in my box were. I always liked it, you cant see the details so great but the purple and black hat was a bird of paradise wearing a top hat, and the ugly one with the pink glove had a cool trick in it, I thought at least, which was the center was a giant crystal covered in lace, which was a cool effect, I got the idea watching the Food Network and on Iron chef this Japanese chef put gold leaf on sushi but then covered it with a super thin slice of ginger so it wasnt such a GARISH GESTURE but still FANCY, more fancy even if you HAVE IT, but just TONE IT DOWN, I mean because if you really do have it, you dont need to call as much attention possible to yourself to prove it... Advice I could take myself.
Id do them very differently now though.. I was so heavy handed then, but if youve ever seen my hands you know why.
