Default Anyone make mini tophats?

I went to a festival this weekend, and I love the steampunk hats. Check out the wiki for more info if you haven't heard of steampunk. It is pretty cool!

Have any of you tried making the hats? I can't BELIEVE the prices for some of them! Most of the hats are doll hats that you can get at craft stores from under $5. Add trim, maybe some lace and feathers, and voila! I'm going to get some hats and try it out. Some sellers put a velcro band on it so it is like a headband, but I prefer the hats with wig clips. Heck, you could stuff inside and sew on a clip, too.

Here are a couple good examples:

And some really ridiculous examples...especially the appliques and $.49 satin ribbon:
