Hi!! I was finally able to take better pictures of my hat! I think just seeing closeups really says a lot about the process!

I spent a long time looking up patterns because I didn’t know exactly what this style of hats was officially called— which is a chullo hat! McCall’s has this really great basic pattern for them that doesn’t look like it would work, but actually ended up being pretty perfect after some slight modifications! The pattern for the hat will look like a crown with two upside-down hills on the bottom, and the crown pieces are sewn together to create the round three dimensional shape, as opposed to just having two flat sides.
For fabric, I just used black fleece, white Sherpa, and the green fabric that I’m using for the rest of the green accents on the costume. As you can see, I just top stitched all the decorations on with the smallest stitch my machine had! It took a lot of measuring, cutting, fray block, and meticulous sewing, but I think it turned out alright visually! I guess another option could be to iron on the designs, but you would probably have to use a different fabric than fleece for the hat with that method. 
I had an awesomely talented friend of mine help me to braid the tassels, and the pompoms are attached with glue. The gold embellishments are actually an office supply. ;) 
I think that’s about all I can say off the top of my head about the process! As a disclaimer, I haven’t worn it to a convention yet, so I’m not sure just how well it will stay together/ photograph/ ect. Despite that, if you decide to try to make one you’re absolutely free to send me more questions if you have any! I only ask that you share some pictures of the finished product with me!

Good luck! :)

imagine a video game where you create a hero whose destiny is to save everyone, but throughout the game you start making harder and more questionable decisions, and the game gets darker and darker. and in the end you’re just standing there, clutching the controller and finally realizing you were playing the villain all along

fuck

I accept the “Stoick saw Valka in Hiccup during the Kill ring scene in HTTYD 1 head canon” but there is one thing that doesn’t add up.
Why would he disown the image of his “late” wife immediately after?
What if Stoick only saw Valka at first, when Hiccup was talking of the philosophies that supposedly got the woman killed.  Yet, when a Night Fury, one of the most feared creatures of their world, jumps into the fray.  When it rescues Hiccup, obeys Hiccup, Stoick saw someone else.
Because who was the last person Stoick witnessed control Dragons?
Stoick had seen Drago use dragons to burn down his contemporaries, his friends, with out any hesitation.  Now his son had a dragon.  A dragon that would have killed Stoick had Hiccup been so inclined to let that happen.
There is no way that his son could ever be like that monster.  Now way Valka’s son could be like that. But Stoick saw the evidence.
Now of course when he saw Hiccup leading the gang into battle.  Saw him fighting for a village that turned it’s back on him, Stoick realized that Hiccup and Drago were two different breeds.  But for a sharp moment he saw a strange man from a strange land look up at him from the boy’s eyes.
And there was no way that could be his son.

this is beyond painful
