Nutcracker's hat
Plural: Nutcracker's hats
Back in the Golden Age of Twilight, there was a very confused hero called the Nutcracker. Stop snickering! Anyway, he dressed up like passerine in a 19th century Russian military uniform. Nobody really knows why, but most just assumed that he picked a name and then couldn't decide if he wanted to pay homage to the bird or the ballet.

Regardless, like everyone else in the Golden Age, he faded to obscurity. Unlike every other hero and villain, nobody much cared, or really even noticed. All that remains of him and his (ahem) legend is this ridiculous hat. I'm sure you'll put it to far better use than he ever did; considering most of the nonsense you wear on a regular basis, it won't look nearly so ridiculous.
