I really don't know what is better than Victorian garb mixed with advanced technology. Any time I have ever imagined some of my favorite worlds, like Alice's Wonderland, I imagine it being steampunk. Don't you agree? When I think of the Mad Tea Party I'm always thinking about gears ticking, set in a time where ascots were acceptable. If you love the steampunk world, check out these steampunk hats by Behind the Castle. They are creative, bold, and strange, in a good way.
Sure, Mary Poppins is very cutesy, but I really think she fits in a world where things are a little darker. The steampunk Mary Poppins hat has cute little daisies hanging playfully on the hat. As a contrast, it is made with a hardy black fabric. It is small and less cumbersome than most of the hats at this store. Plus, it comes with a headband to make it stay on.
I think that this steamPunk Mad Hatter top hat tells the story of Alice in Wonderland the best. The Queen of Hearts and Ace of Hearts cards decorating the rim are perfect. There are other elements that represent the story, such as the "drink me" potion and clock embedded in the hat.
If you look at the front, you can see that this steampunk Mad Tea Party top hat looks like it's made from a big shoe. It actually laces up like a boot in the front. I'm not a huge fan of the plaid fabric, but I really like the style of the hat itself!
This steampunk Mad Tea Party top hat is the most ornate out of the four. There are so many things attached to the hat that I feel like it might be hard to keep on your head. The gears and oversized ribbons attached are gorgeous.
This Dr. Facilier inspired steampunk top hat is really awesome. I'm so glad an underrated Disney villain is now being recognized. I've always felt that his hat was so badass. In my opinion, he sings one of the most evilly groovy songs in Disney history.
I would love to accessorize with this steampunk Mardi Gras mini top hat. Even though it's a very colorful hat, it has a more twisted and ominous aura attached to it.
Don't you think these steampunk hats by Behind the Castle are amazing? They are one of a kind, which is always a bonus! Which one do you like the most? I'm having a hard time picking, because I like them all for different events. What would you wear them to? Make sure to tell me about it down below!
