One of the best things about sitting through long graduation ceremonies is spotting the cool graduation cap designs. While plenty opt-out of decorating (or use one of the many overdone phrases), many are inspired to be creative and unique when decorating.
Check out some of the coolest, funniest, and most unique designs of 2018. Movie, television, and video game references were hot, but these grads made the designs their own.
Some took a humorous approach, with plenty of puns.
Others celebrated their cultural backgrounds.

Many were directly inspired by their majors.
I AM OFFICIALLY GRADUATED 🎉🎉🎉 Okay technically I have two more classes to take this summer before I’m completely done BUT I’ve gone through the official ceremony. Which is why I’ve been MIA the last couple of days. It’s been very busy around here. A few of you were interested in seeing my cap once I finished decorating it so I thought I would share it in an official post instead of just my stories. The titles are books that I love, whether I read them on my own or during the last four years of college. Shout out to @nerdy.post for the LOTR tape and @littlecrowcandles for the Dobby sticker! 😍😍😍 . . . #graduation #graduationcap #bookishgraduationcap #englishmajor #englishliteraturestudent #englishliteraturemajor #indianauniversitysoutheast #classof2018 #bookstagram
My graduation cap! I decided to decorate it with my favorite children’s book, Magic Tree House 4: Pirates Past Noon. My favorite scene was when Jack and Annie find out the librarian was helping them on their adventure all along. I thought this was appropriate since I’m graduating with my Masters in Library and Information Science from Rutgers University! It’s been such a wonderful experience and I can’t wait to move forward with my journey! 🙂 #graduationcap #magictreehouse #librarian

This one graduate was influenced by the Met Gala.
And some paid tribute to their celebrity icons.
Whatever the inspiration, these graduates definitely showed off their passions. Congratulations to all these creative grads!
