    I can't seem to see the vtf of the Gibus, as the black becomes blue on Paint.Net.

    Edited:

    Well, looking as we have plenty of colors with no photos so we see how they look like when painted on a hat, we should probably start doing that.

    Similar to how Mnemo used the Ol' Geezer in his photos, we should use the Wiki Hat in our paint preview photos.

    Only thing is I have no clue how to do that, so someone might need to help me out.

    Edited:

    A Shadowy Figure's Ghastly Shade

    Sampled from the Ghastly Gibus

       I copied the TF2 wiki picture of the Heavy wearing a gibus, put it in MS paint, marked a square inside the Gibus, pressed ctrl and minus until it had been summed up into a single pixel, and then I pressed ctrl and plus until the pixel was large enough to show the color that I wanted. SCIENCE!
