Nothing but Hats

Happy New Year me Hearties!

Couple of my latest I'd like to share. Back to the fighting sail timeframe with these ones. The first is your basic duty cocked hat, tried to get it as close as possible to the ones in the Hornblower miniseries;

This one I'm going to keep for myself. Sorry about the hideous looking creature ruining the picture, but I wanted to give a general idea of the size of the hat.

Now let me ask a practical question; as I'm working towards starting my online hat site and plan on offering these two hats as standard designs, what do you think I should be realistically charging for them? As there are so few people offering stuff like this it's hard to get a good idea of what people are willing to pay.

Thanks!

Thank'ee Strick, I sure hope so!

I've been wanting to do one like this for a while now, and as I ruined a blank trying to make something else I figured I'd use the scrap to make it.

Any chance at getting a "Dutch Masters" type from you sir? Been wanting one of those since the first time I saw them on grandad's cigar box.

These are all really cool, eventually I'm going to commission a 17th century style bicorn, similar to the one Governor Ensley had in Cutthroat Island.

Back with more! These ones are all commissioned pieces.

First up is a very weathered and piratical looking one;

A more conservative look (I lightly weathered it since I took these)

And this one was for someone who wanted a "Horatio Hornblower Hat";

Hey nice job on all of them. The last few brown ones caught my eye big time. I need a brown hat.

Has the one with the bullet hole been sold as of yet Mr. Yellowbeard?

Aye, that one was a commissioned piece that's gone.

I guess this one is a stretch for pirate-related garb, but it would fit in with Jean Lafitte's time period;

I'm particularly proud of this one because I made everything myself, no pre-made blank used at all. It's made of cardstock covered with canvas covered with silk plush.

And thank'ee all for the compliments!

The hat I got my avatar in Pirate of the Caribbean Online is almost Identical to this one, it's a nice hat, but is more Napolionic than PotC timeframe
