"Baby Train Conductor" or "Jack's Hat Continued"
Though fun and pretty cute there were a couple of problems with the Imperial Baby hat. Firstly, it didnt cover Jack's ears. Since the whole point of this hat experiment is to make something that will work as a sun cover, that just wont do. This time I made the main part of the hat an inch wider and I think that for Jack's head size, this new measurement will work just fine. The other problem I had with the first attempt was the brim. I wanted something a bit more... baseball capish?
Note: Please excuse yogurt face McDoogles below. Sometimes you do what you have to do to get a non-blurry baby picture, like feeding him spoonfulls of yum and then quickly scooting backward on your butt while madly snapping pictures before he thinks to start crawling all over you again.
I tried making the whole thing a bit smaller and slightly curving the edge that actually connects to the hat. Its better, but not quite right yet. Its a bit exagerated still. Hence the train conductor comparison. See?
I feel like this is a less awesome family costume theme idea. Bruce would probably look pretty hot in a bandana and overalls though.
My mission continues...
