What makes it magical? Well, two things. One is that there's a secret pocket inside. The second thing is that I was just walking through a world famous toy store in Midtown Manhattan earlier today -- totally minding my own business -- when, wouldn't you know it, a gust of wind blew through the store. Quicker than you could say "Frosty the Snowman," this bad boy up and perched itself on my pate.
I don't exactly know how it got there (perhaps it thought I was a fungi) but I do know better than to look a gift 'shroom in the gills so I pulled out my trusty iPhone and captured the moment for posterity.
Before it tumbled away in the next gust of wind I managed to see that it was made by Elope (which has had many a fantastical lid featured in the Project), which means it's probably this here toadstool.
Though I'm no ace at mushroom identification, it appears the mushroom millinery I'm sporting was crafted by elves to resemble Amanita muscaria -- this here mushroom -- which has psychoactive properties.
Which would make it a magic mushroom -- in more ways than one!

Q: OK, nice hat -- but what exactly is Project Cubbins, anyway?
