Don't think I'm not making notes... crafting one-off hats, little works of art that spoke to individual diehard fans and were items to value seems like an amazing, unique way to connect with Traveller and its fans.

Interesting. i was talking to a group of Star Wars folks at a sf convention earlier this year and they made most of their costumes. Except for the body armor, and they were looking at a thermal vacuum forming machine that would help them make that.

We had one of those at university, back in my theatrical desgin days, that was used to form things like columns and face masks for Greek and Roman plays.

That is really well done. Did you do the embroidery yourself?

I did not. I found and acquired the cap, selected the logos and the colors, did the design work... and then had someone much more skilled and with equipment do the embroidery at my direction.

Which I'm sure was a little annoying, but lucrative for him.

Like others, I don't wear hats but that one could throw me over the edge. I like that it looks sort of well-used as well.

Looks like a movie prop from an old Traveller film. I want to say that it's that cap that Jeff Bridges' character wore.

Heh... that's definitely the vibe I was going form - a keepsake that looked like it had seen more than a few parsecs, something a Scout decided made it into the bag every time there was another move, transfer, or paring down of items carried.

You should seriously get an OK from Marc to make these. I'm serious about buying one.
