DOWNLOAD FOR FULL GLORY!
If you've wondered why I haven't been on TF2 for the last few, erm, months, well, here's a visual essay.
When I asked my friend for advice on this. He said, "my only advice is to never do it again."

Producing it was a pain, that is. But seeing it finished is glory!
Before you ask:
-I know the spy can't equip most of these hats ingame. But how would you know anyway? He's invisible.
-All the hats are there except the 'hatless' headgears; I thought of showing them as a box of hairgel or a severed head or something but I had the feeling it'd elicit more questions than otherwise.
-The misc. items that could have otherwise qualified as hats - like the Large Luchador - were not included. I had to stay sane somehow and most of them were facial hair and other bits that were hard to stack.
-Best hat: Towering Pillar of Hats. It's so majestic!
-Worst hat: Geisha Boy. EW!
-The Cheater's Lament is there! Not sure why it's hard to find! But then again I had my nose in this for 50 hours...

UPDATE: This has been featured on Gameinformer and Kotaku! So cool! But the best reaction by far was that of my mom.
MOM: "Why is that man smoking?"
ME: "It's a character in a game, mom. I don't advocate smoking."
MOM: "Oh, good. I'm relieved. Is that that Team Force 3 game your boyfriend's always playing?"
ME: "Yes. Yes it is."
MOM: "I tried printing it out, but it's too long. I'm going to have to tape it together."
hehe... CAN YOU NAME THEM ALL?
