Thracian Cap

Thracian cap. made of cow hide

The style or shape is that of phrygian cap, i.e. with a forward pointing top the crown, smurf hat style.

Thracian caps where made of skins with the fur still attached, and then the rest of leather is left to dangle down over the shoulders.

You will find the style of hat in many images of ancient Thracian warriors or Bulgarian area history.

Purchased from a reenactment fayre, although you could easily make this yourself for cost of bit leather its only got one crude seam.

Probably going to be used for some sort of fantasy goblin.
