Great stuff, perhaps he has an automated hatstand that fits, removes and stores his hats.

it's the translucency that really gives the monsters inc eyes that special quality, a friend of mine is working on photoreal eyes at the moment and he is having a nitemare of a time with them

Staple Gun? That might explain why it sits like that without falling off Probably why he doesn't make it sit straight either
