Contestant for ugliest hat


So many ways to make fun of this craft--Princess Leia's hairstyle gone wild, a pillow tied to a baby's head, baby hammerhead shark ... I just don't know which one to go with. And do the rest of you see a little doo-hickey, mabobby at the top of the hat? What is up with that? Trying to make it more like an alien instead of a monster? The poor kid, he doesn't even know what's tied to his head or he wouldn't be looking so complacent.
Thanks to Shaylah D. for having enough sense to send this into us!

I first emailed this to Shaylah D (my SIL). I found it when I was searching for a hat to crochet. This one is wrong on so many levels...

That's from Katamari Damacy, a computer game.

This has got to mean something to someone, because its just too nonsensical for somebody to have just thought up all on their own as a good idea for a baby hat.

I feel bad for that darling baby, she seems to have no clue how ridiculous that hat looks.

it IS ugly - but Giggles is right - it's from a video game... and I actually have a few family members that are big enough fans that they'd love that hat... and I'd give it to them, because for crying out LOUD it's ugly!

This is a rendition of the headgear worn by the main character in videogame Katamari Damacy. It's actually not a bad match. Pic for reference: http://tinylub.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/04/katamari-damacy-prince.jpg

The game, by the way, is very fun.

Actually that's a great hat. Yes, Katamari Damacy. But if you don't know the context then yeah, it looks bad.

It's the Prince's hat from Katamari Damacy, and it's awesome.

This is a katamari damacy hat... if you know what that is, the hat makes a lot of sense and is totally clever & adorable!
