I have a baseball cap that I need to dye, but I'm not sure of the best way to go about it.
The hat is 63% polyester, 34% cotton, 3% spandex. I think most of the polyester is from the stiffening layer at the front of the hat on the inside, as the outside of the hat itself seems mostly cotton, or at least very close to it.
I was figuring I could just use RIT dye, but I'm a little reluctant because the tag says only to wash cold, but it doesn't seem to say anything about putting it in a dryer... I don't know how the heated water will effect it during the dying. The hat is fitted, so if it shrank, I can't just adjust the strap on it.
I suppose another option would be "sharpie and alcohol," but last time I tested that on something, there was a lot of bleeding of different colors in the material.
What would be the best way to dye a hat like this?

Any questions, quality, pictures, anything goes as long as it's Indie Brand..
Does any have experience with Akane & Alois?
I really love their Devil Doll OP, I think it's gorgeous, but considering that this is 666 yuan it's quite pricey for a Taobao brand (looks worth it though!).
How is their quality?
I'd also love to see a picture of this worn by someone else than the model but couldn't find any.
Where did all the Europeans go?

I noticed that we've had some decline in terms of threads about our dear continental friends. This pains me greatly, since I really enjoyed making fun of them (especially the Irish, Italians and Swedes; Hispanics tend to, unfortunately, keep talking in their own language).
Have they all stopped cosplaying, or is the crisis really that bad in the EU?

Non-Europeans are welcome too, as long as they're not from countries under Her Majesty's protection (that includes the colony that lies between Canada and Mexico).
