Project Cubbins: Hat 180 -- Megamindful Edition
Day 180 / Hat 180: Sky blue Megamind headgear with pointy ears and black applique eyebrow detail. Interior tag reads: "DreamWorks, Megamind. Bad. Blue. Brilliant. Manufactured September 2010."

Graciously on loan to the Project, this high hat is from the Team Boucher (henceforth TB) series, which is no well on its way to becoming the first family to be added to the ranks of the MHDC.
I never actually saw "Megamind," which hit theaters three years ago this month, but I'm all in for anyone -- reformed/lapsed/practicing super villain or not -- who's comfortable with rockin' a gigantic bald head.
I'd hoped the side-by-side comparison turned out funnier, but we'll always have my mawg shot.

OK, nice hat -- but what exactly is Project Cubbins, anyway?
A: One man's homage to Dr. Seuss and his second book, "The 500 Hats of Bartholemew Cubbins," which is celebrating the 75th anniversary of its publication in 2013, Project Cubbins is an attempt to document the wearing of a different hat or piece of headgear every day for 500 consecutive days. No do-aheads, no banking of hats, no retroactive entries. PC started on May 27, 2013 with Hat 1.
Got hats? If you loan 'em, you'll get e'm back safe and sound!
