Many people have asked where Johnny got his fabulous hat. Well, now you know:

Store Location: Bastion
License: Small Artisan

I really love the juxtaposition of modern on a pirate setting... Builds like this are the reason I ended up as a Sea Rat. This build is probably as extreme as I will take this idea.

C&C welcome as always!

While the historical purist in me baulks at this (mainly the digital cash register!!! :pir-oh3:), it is a fantastic build! The use of the new(ish) rounded tiles to make the font for the sign is great - I haven't seen that before. The shelving also looks good and that is an impressive collection of hats. Minifig posing is also perfect. Great job!

He traveled into the future to get his hat.   :pir_laugh2:

Nice nouveau pirate style.

I laughed quite heartily at this...  While not historically correct it's a great build I think this is how the store would have looked back then

Thanks for the encouragement everyone.

@Ayrlego I agree, the build is a bit extreme. 

It was a fun design. Where would pirates buy hats? Then I thought of those slightly obnoxious stores in the mall. 

The only difficulty I had was getting a slightly lighter color behind the hats so the bicornes would stand out a little better. I ended up melting some 1x2x2 white panels trying to dye them dark grey. 😟

I ended up building a back using dark bluish grey tiles/plates. Frustrating evening. Sad for losing the parts... I have successfully dyed some blue plates dark blue so there’s still some hope!
