It turned out so well I decided to do a movie-themed hat last year for this year's TCM Classic Film Festival (TCMFF). I'd found a vintage boater hat on ebay. The style of a boater seemed to be more in keeping with TCMFF, though the texture of the hat was not as easy to work with as the Stetson. I put some blue tape on the hat so the artists could see where the hat band would go and work around it. I still need to get a new hat band made.
I started it at Wonder Con (got three pieces done) and continued at another convention (another three pieces). I had it finished at Comic-Con International in San Diego. The results are shown below with the artist and their individual sketches, more or less in the order they were done.
