Metroid Hat by Eyes5 Metroid Hat by Eyes5
One day, on a whim, I made a metroid hat. It's first order of business is to kill all things cuter than it, starting with Togepi.

This hat was so easy and so cheap to make! I spent about 20$ on materials and ended up using about 15% of it all. It's completely made out of fleece and thread. And I don't wanna post any pictures of me wearing it. Just because. The metroid on Pikachu is a beanie baby I sewed three nuclei onto.

Edit: I wore this to PAX '07 and it was very popular! I got linked to by Joystiq. You can see me here: [link]

Your description is perfect, it must kill cuter things!
You've inspired me to make my own Metroid hat, but first I must become skilled in hat making...

Great job!!

Love the hat! But I see... there is something interesting behind Togepi. Is that a Samus Helmet?

two questions,
where do you get that shirt in mens large, and are you going to sell hats like that? or at least have directions online.

Awesome hat and shirt btw!

Wow! Is there anywhere you're selling these?? Or could you explain a little more in detail how you made them? (especially the teeth, I'm curious!) I SO want one!

I adore that hat and must make one for myself. My head gets cold in the winter time so it's obvious that I need a Metroid.

With that much material left, you could make more... You must make more! They're so much harder to combat in groups...

You realize of course that you and your hat were posted on Joystiq's PAX coverage, and the whole world loves you, your hat, and your shirt?

It truly is an amazing hat and I'd buy one in a heartbeat. If you could strike a deal with a company to mass-produce these, you'll be every gamer's hero forever. Seriously.

It's funny, my mom saw me playing Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, and I scanned a Dark Tallon Metroid, and she saw it and said "Want me to make a hat out of that?"
