Ocelot wanted a lot.

This wonderful cat-hat designed by Anna Shepherd for the dark comedy film Inglourious Basterds,
and I do wish I had a lifestyle it would fit into (in fake fur of course, as no kitties were harmed in the making of this life).
Clothes On Film has the details, although they do not mention that Elsa Schiaparelli was their inspiration:

The reason fake fur is the only way to go, is that this dear little scratchy bitey Amur cub
is in a UK zoo because only 40 survive in their natural habitat.


  1. Please don't tell me it's not ocelot. It's fake fur and that could hardly be completely accurate anyhow.
    There are also several varieties of both ocelot and leopard, so the whole question is moot anyhow.
    Cat fur looks best on cats, and only ancient cave dwellers are excused to kill for clothing.

  2. I just found me a new desktop photo--the one of the cub.
