During Hat Kid's adventure, she can unlock customizations by exchanging Rift Tokens in the Orb Machine hidden behind the barrels in the Main room of Hat Kid's Spaceship, or by completing each Time Rift for the first time. Customization options include Hat Flairs to change the appearance of certain Hats, palettes that change the colors for Hat Kid's clothing/hair, and remixes to change the music in certain levels/areas.

One important thing to note is that there are NOT enough Time Rifts and Rift Tokens in the game to get all hat flairs, palettes and remixes in one file. Not counting the completionist's hat there are a total of 31 items available on the PC version, and 29 on the console versions (it is missing two remixes). You can spin the machine 28 times (14 times from time rifts, and another 14 times from the 42 tokens you collect).

This means that on the PC version, you can get all but 3 customizations, and on the console versions, all but 1 customizations.
