Alright, I'll admit: this hat was a total bitch to make. I did learn a lot of things in the process (both good and bad) and this isn't a hat pattern I'll want to tackle again anytime soon because I made it more complicated than it should be. I also went too far off center when sewing on the right eye and I really fucked it up, but the rest of the hat looks ok. Well, I made the fingers too small but I can live with that too.
Anyway, I really like the embroidering of Kyogre's markings on the fins and the "hands" (flippers?) I was considering cutting out red fleece and then satin stitching the pieces onto the main body like with the white spots on Kyogre's head, but that would've been too much work and the outcome probably wouldn't have been as good. The flippers are longer on purpose so they act as a sort of scarf and keeps your neck warm
EDIT: I forgot to mention earlier that this hat is also up for sale! It measures about 22" in circumference and will fit anyone with a 22"-23" head. It's $45 CAD, shipping included; I take PayPal only. If you're interested, please send me a note and I'll get back to you! Sorry, the hat is sold!EDIT 2:
