FULL VIEW FOR BEST DETAIL!!!!

OK everyone! So yes, this is my hat design for this EPIC CONTEST!!! And I really, really, REALLY hope you all like it. I would also love it if you could fave this hat (if you like it, if you don't that's fine too ^.^) so that I have a shot at winning! Votes are based off of faves and the hat with the most votes wins!!

I intended the larger brown straps to be leather (or some sort of thicker material.) They are supposed to criss-cross around the entire hat, but they don't have too. The corset looking part is seperate from the hat itself and is secured seperately to the hat. The laces can be ribbon or string. The gears are supposed to be brass/ copper (cant do that look with my markers XP). The hat itself is black, and the feathers can be whatever. I just picked those colors because I though they looked nice with the hat overall. The red and gold patterned fabric is also seperate from the actual hat and goes on before the corset part. The chain is attached to the clock, and is hung like a garland around the hat with small, pale pink bows. There is also a pale pink, sash-like ribbon hanging from behind the clock, and is secured to the hat with metal fasteners (like the ones on the Time Machine hat the group already designed. Check that one out guys it's one-of-a-kind and it's up on etsy. It's on the front page of the group I think). The ribbon is also hung like a garland around the hat, and it is doubled over with the loops hanging at different lengths.

I colored this with copic markers and it took me about 2 hours cumulatively to design and put on paper.

Thanks for looking guys and for helping me have a shot at winning!!

I would do without the pink; it seems a little bit out of place to me. But other than that, it looks great! Love the feathers and the gears; I've always wanted a hat like this. C:

Wow! Thank you! I put the pink in to add a splash of color, but you may be right. It's not like the hat needs it. It could be red or yellow.
