Linkin Park Concert

28 Jan

They performed like beasts. The concert was last Thursday January 20th, I haven’t written for over a week because my internet has been acting awfully foolish. Anyhow, I can’t even began to describe the performance. The thing is, you really had to be a fan to love that concert, it’s almost as if they created the  show just for me. I love that they didn’t just play their new music, the lineup was perfect. Chester came off stage and I could see the sweat on his face. Mike was almost eaten when he jumped into the crowd. Linkin Park has been my favorite band since I was 7 years old, and this was the first time I’ve gotten to seen them so I’ll be on a mental high for the next month or so.

 

 

What also made the night more special was my preparation for the concert. My LP logo purple fedora was noticed by many along with my fiercesome new combat boots.

 

 

Pink Hat

14 Jan

I’m going to see Linkin Park in concert next Thursday so I had this plan to make a pink fedora with their LP logo on it.. But the one I made was a bit too big to wear to the concert so I might end up buying one then putting the logo on. But anyway It took about four hours but I made the hat out of cardboard and wire.


I always have a hard time throwing out old cardboard boxes, I guess this is why.. I cut the panels off of the top and bottom of the box and was left with the middle. I then cut that in half and stapled each side together to form a circle.

Wire hangers came in handy here, I took one, unraveled it, and twined it into a big circle to make the brim.

My plan seemed to be coming together.

After that I covered the cardboard in pink fabric. Then I took several fabric strips and folded them around the circular wire.

I then sewed the edges of the fabric from the wire onto the inside of the base of the hat.

I got a another piece of fabric and sewed it onto the inside of the hat to be the top. And Viola! my pink hat.

I bit patchy but I did pretty decent considering I made this from a box and a coat hanger. Here I am, beating the economy at it’s own game.
