The real hat (right) and the retexture (left)

A retextured hat is a model that was made by a roblox user, it is a hat with a different texture from the original hat, and it is not a real hat.

Retextures and Real HatsEdit

Most people make retextures because they want it to become a real hat. Their goal is to advertise their retexture so an admin can see it. When an admin likes a retexture, he tells the other admins about it, and then it becomes a real hat. Retextures are usually limited hats.


Edited or recolored faces are not called retextures. A recolored face is a face that looks like another face, but has a different color in a part of it. When recolored faces become real hats, they are always limited items, because all faces with color are limited.
