Your Cat NEEDS This Bonnet

So you know that look your cat gives you? The one where you’re pretty sure it’s contemplating murder? If your cat was wearing this bonnet, you could think of the Firefly line “I swear by my pretty floral bonnet, I will end you” and laugh and laugh. Watch your back though.

pokemon go accessories

By now, several of us have begun our journeys as trainers in Niantic Labs’ hit new augmented reality game, Pokemon Go. The new mobile title based on Nintendo’s hit game franchise is helping people explore their surroundings in new ways, and it’s getting tons of us out of the house. But when it comes to long-haul trips like those required by the game, even the most physically fit trainer can find themselves weary.

So, here are a few suggestions for creating a trainer ensemble that will make your journey a bit easier (which you should cap off with comfortable shoes, of course). [click to continue…]

We’ve featured the unique handmade hats of Etsy seller HandiCraftKate in the past, but now there are comfy hood versions in her whimsical and (mostly) colorful style.

Check out more examples below. [click to continue…]

dragon scale hood

It may be summer in your neck of the woods but, you know, winter is coming and all that.

When it does come, you’ll be glad to have this Dragon Scale Nomad Hood from Etsy seller Ember And Ash. In addition to the chunky scale pattern, the hood includes crochet extensions that measure 105 inches from end to end so you can wrap them around your neck like a scarf. Plus, there are loads of color options.

Looking for a snail shell helmet? You’ve come to the right/only place. These custom helmets from Etsy seller HighNoonCreations are made from rubber and assembled and painted by hand.

They don’t come with the tentacles though—which is baffling. I can’t outfit a snail posse with non-tentacled helmets.

There are a lot of college graduates out there, so you’ll want to stand out from the crowd. You can start by wearing an LED graduation cap with scrolling messages on the top.

Human person Dan Barkus has customized his graduation cap with a Teensy 3.2 board and a small Bluetooth module connected to a full-color LED that can display a handful of pre-designed graphics or, if he’s feeling a little cheeky, a customized scrolling message. The commands are sent to his hat via his phone. That is not a sentence I ever expected to have to write in my life, but there you have it.

Check out a video of the hat in action along with a second video highlighting how the cap was made.

As part of the Alien Day festivities yesterday, Mondo has released a new Facehugger ski mask and Chestburster sweater. Because of course they did. They’re Mondo and they’re awesome.

The Blonde Swan Hat Boutique has all sorts of cool things to put on your head, but I’m partial to the vintage-style Wonder Woman products.

I think I’d do the vintage cap with the vintage goggles. No eagles—I want to keep it simple. How about you?

Check out the rest of the lineup below.

rocking chair hat

Sorry, Grandma, but you’re getting replaced. This invention by students Damien Ludi and Colin Peillex of ECAL is called the Low-Tech Factor Rocking-Knit is able to knit a hat all on its own — all you have to do is rock back and forth. No, this isn’t an April Fool’s joke: the Rocking-Knit was built for real, and it is magnificent.

See it in action below.
