Let’s take a moment to check in on the latest crocheted headwear by Melbourne-based textile artist Phil Ferguson, aka Chili Philly (previously featured here). Ferguson is still hard at work creating some of the biggest, silliest hats we’ve ever seen. It doesn’t matter what the weathers is like, any time of year is a good time to wear a giant banana, drumstick, or popsicle on your head.

Original Submission Date: September 1, 2012

Summary: The first part of this project was created in Illustrator, as I decided to trace the general outlines on Captain Falcon’s helmet from a reference I found on the Internet.

On February 21, 2013, I built on this work by adding a back to the helmet and a gold trim.

The final submission, uploaded, October 14, 2014, was part of another project I was working on for someone else. I enlarged the front-view of the helmets, added a gold trim, and placed the full vector alongside a minimalist version of it. Both would be used for Jordan Rejaud’s Android App

The minimalist design will show up on Google watches.
