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.
