Legend of Zelda - OoT Link's Hat

Hey everyone~

I'm in the middle of sewing my hat (hence the unfinished borders, and the lumpy pumpkin effect...), but I want to know some opinions on the overall look. Is the shape alright? I gave it a little flair at the bottom, to accommodate the scabbard & shield that'll be on my back. I was pretty happy at the results, but a second opinion never hurts!

I've been trying to figure out a pattern for this cursed hat for a while, and this is my third attempt (first being that triangle pattern, second Skyward's version), and now with the foam core to help guide my shape. It's partly stuffed, I might add more, but for lazy's sake, let's say this is how it'll look finished.

Critiques? Opinions? Anything & everything is welcomed, thanks a bunch guys! You keep me motivated~

I think it looks cute. I don't think you need it stuffed more since it might look like a stuffed animal (not neccesarily an animal but I meant like it looks stuffed or something. Hard to explain. =T ) and loose it's hattiness.

Looks great, I agree with cowsrcute too. Stuffing it adds a nice effect but too much looks overdone.

Nice hat, but I feel just a little bit of stuffing should be taken out. The overall shape is great. I like the little details on the top as well. I'm in process of creating a Young Link cosplay and making the hat is scary. lol.
