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.

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.

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.

This is so much better than that silly red and white striped hat that other cat wears. It’s made with little styrofoam planets painted with acrylic paint then embellished with glitter. I’m not sure the average cat would wear this for more than ten seconds, but it would be the best ten seconds of that cat’s life. Of course, he might kill you in your sleep as revenge, but, whatever.
