Knit Baby Space Invaders Hat: Geeky or Geek Chic?

If you're not a Space Invaders fan and you're looking at this hat and wondering what the pattern on this baby cap is, you're not alone.

It took me awhile to recognize the pattern on this hat, created by a crafter that goes by the name of tracy_the_astonishing on Instructables, but it's actually the Space Invaders themselves descending down onto the earth/blue knit sky.

First the Space Invaders Mobile and now this hat for a newborn? I am sensing a "lil gamer" trend. Am I the only person that thinks it's wrong to put anyone that's too young to play games in gamer apparel?

You can't really make out what those things are. Even if you have played Space Invaders O.o

The hat itself is nice, but the space invaders are over the top. Borderline tacky.

"Am I the only person that thinks it's wrong to put anyone that's too young to play games in gamer apparel?" I'm kind of with you on that; it's how I felt when I saw a resurgence of Care Bears stuff at Target. It was all produced for little kids who have never seen the cartoons. Sigh. Same with My Little Pony. It's a cute idea but the Invaders don't translate into knitwear too well.

That is so freakin' cute! I bet you would get SO many compliments from wearing this! People would be like "Hold on! What's that on your hat? Space Invaders? That's so sweet!"
