Maker Faire Detroit & Steampunk Hatter

Sore feet, a bit of dehydration and, I am afraid, a bit more sunburn than I would have preferred.  Despite that, Maker Faire was a hit for me this year.  I was a bit concerned at first because the show looked smaller than it did last year.  Surprise, the added space in The Henry Ford (Museum) was a perfect touch.  What a better place than a museum dedicated to the greatest makers of the past.

I think the highlight of the show for me was meeting the nice folks from Steampunk Hatter.  They had a decent sized tent and the most extraordinary hats that I have ever seen.  All leather with varying amounts of steampunk decoration to your taste.  Of course, I couldn’t pass up getting a hat.  Call it a celebratory gift for finishing the first draft (ok, still a bit pre-mature, but it is going to be done this before I head off to Gen Con blast it all!).  I passed on the top hats and went for the black stoker.  If you have the chance to get one of these hats online, or in person from the fine folks at Steampunk Hatter… you will not be disappointed!
