Now that the hat is finished, I can start something new. How about SteamPunk Goggles!?!
Sounds cool huh? Well, I have started the process and so far my dad and I have tried to make a perfect circle (which, by the way is NOT easy). I can’t wait to share the process with y’all!
I’ll post more soon.

I. AM. DONE. Okay, It was fun…. but when it was all said and done, it was a lot of work! For instance, we made a hat that did NOT fit me whatsoever and we had to make a whole new hat! It’s not a piece of cake… I wish it was, ’cause I’m hungry. But, I love looking at it ’cause it makes me feel good, and I’m like, ” Yeah, I did that. ” Well, onto my next adventure : ).
Today my project transformed.
I started to see my SteamPunk Top Hat look like a Top Hat and less like a multi-colored toy. I applied two coats of black paint to the foam and rivets and quickly it started to look like metal pieces that had been riveted to the hat.
In the picture to the right you can see me painting my hat with black paint. It is really cold here in Texas right now, so I was wearing my penguin hat from SeaWorld. The penguin’s name is Benjamin.
So my ears are warm, my hat is starting to look cool, and it is the first day of 2015. Did I mention that I stayed up until Midnight last night? Yes, I rang in the new year properly.
Hello everyone who happens to be reading my blog!
Adding the rivets to the Top Hat
So, today I continued creating the mystical top hat of amazement!! OK, that was exaggerating a bit, but still, it’s a pretty cool hat. Anyway, I started to do the rivets on the hat. With 2 part 5 minute epoxy, and applied it with a match.
I can’t wait to start painting it tomorrow! I’ll be sure to post some pictures once I get it painted.
