DIY Krang Hat

If you’re not fully committed to making an elaborate Krang from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles costume like this one, you can cheat and simply craft a Krang hat. Instructables user ashleyjlong made the hat for an art gallery project and then realized it would work well as part of a costume. All you need is pink fleece or an already-made pink fleece beanie, felt, black paint or yarn, glue, stuffing, and basic tools.

Creating Krang’s creepy but cute face is pretty straightforward, and this is definitely a project you can tackle in an evening. So, if you still don’t have any kind of Halloween costume to wear, this is a good last minute idea.

The weather is going to get cold soon and this hat will keep your kids warm and have them looking fantastic. It’s a Batman laplander with wings on the sides and when you squeeze the left tassel it activates a pump that makes the wings flap! There’s also one with Michelangelo of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with swinging nunchuks.

TARDIS top hat

Fabulous costumes are a guaranteed sight at Dragon Con, but that’s not all. You’re also likely to see creative accessories at the convention, and this TARDIS top hat is a great example. Spotted and photographed by Hiro Protagonist2004, this hat appears to made of leather or pleather and features a latch. The TARDIS looks like it’s decorated on the inside, and I’m guessing/hoping the interior features the control room.

You can keep warm and toasty and rock one of the most iconic hairdos in the galaxy with this knit Princess Leia beanie from ThinkGeek. The hat is lined with fleece so you don’t have to worry about catching a chill while you’re running around Echo Base on Hoth. Plus, pulling hair buns on is much easier than trying to pin your hair into place.

Groot beanie

If I had to use one word to describe Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy, it would be kind. His niceness continues with this fleece hat by Etsy seller The Pink Castle because he’ll keep your head warm and protected. My favorite part of the hat is the little leaves!

The Groot hat is made to order and will be shipped in 1-2 weeks.

selfie hat

If you thought the selfie hairbrush we posted the other day was silly, wait till you get a load of this Selfie-Hat by Acer UK and fashion designer Christian Cowan-Sanluis for London Fashion Week.

The Selfie-Hat spins 360 degrees to let you find you “best angle” and has an integrated Acer Iconia A-1 840 tablet. Acer explains:

“Whilst slowly moving the screen from left to right, not only does the selfie sombrero help the user finding their best angle, but also how to understand lighting, how various expressions can change your face and ultimately create the perfect social media moment”.

“Users can access any apps such as Facebook or Instagram whilst wearing the hat – being on social media never looked so glamorous,” Acer added.

Um…yeah…I got nothing.

Believe it or not, this hat can actually be purchased by appointment. Interested parties can contact “Hans” at the Acer press office for more info.

Ever wonder what it would be like to have a clone of yourself? Well, with the DOTA 2 Meepo Cowl you can finally clone up to four versions of yourself! Eh… just kidding. This Cowl doesn’t have any special cloning powers. Still, it’s made from a comfy jersey knit/cotton blend, and the ears are made from something called Velboa, with is a very soft acrylic fabric. So, no on the cloning and teleporting, but yes in regards to the cowl being extremely comfortable. At least that’s something, right?

Check out another picture of the cowl after the break…

doctor who hats_header

The Doctor has worn many hats over the last 50 years of Doctor Who. Cowboy hats, fezzes, fedoras – the Doctor’s tried on plenty of them and they’ve mostly been cool. Though I will always remember the Eleventh Doctor’s fez the most, this infographic from Hats.com reminded me of ones I’d forgotten about and also points out which Doctors never wore hats.
