An Octopus on One's Head

Once upon a time, Madame A forwarded me a photograph of a woman wearing a top hat with goggles and an octopus intertwined, and I've coveted it ever since.  We met up with the designer a few months ago and I commissioned a version for myself.  Since I'm a smaller person, we chose a lady's riding hat with veil, and added a treasure motif with shells and gems.

How could anything be more perfect than to wear an octopus on one's head?  Now I just have to design the appropriate steampunk outfit to go with it.
