OOH I loves me some hats too! I have to wear something on my head when I'm garbed up, or else I don't feel completely dressed. I'd love to start making my own hats, but it seems so daunting...right now I'm happy to purchase from and support talented artisans!

Since we're also sharing non-Ren hats, here's my tiny topper I wear when I'm being Victorian:

These are the ones we have been wearing the most recently.



My red tall hat that I've named "Gandoff" and Mad Maggie's Italian Bonnet... both by Margaret Roe Designs



Maggie's Attifet... I don't know who made this



My black Excaliber Leather Hat from Bristol... not sure the style name



Maggies "mushroom" hat.. again, don't know the style name.  We bought this at Bristol at the hat shop just up from the noble's glade

Look at those marvelous hats! All with shiny bright things on them. Things my character could not afford and cannot talk my wardrobe mistress into. Dag-nabbit. I am jealous, jealous.

I loves  everyone's hats.  I look stupid in hats, so I rarely wear them.

I have hat envy now. I must go find some more plumage for my hat. I was thinking about some antiquey buttons to sew around the brim but not look gaudy. I liked the anchor ones from JAS Townsend, and they weren't at a bad price.

Also, tomorrow I want to post pics I have of my straw wide brim floppy hat that I decorated. I called it Rosey Pirata. I tied a burgundy ribbon around for a hat band, sewed a big pretty red rose on one side, with a couple of rosey red buds, baby's breath and some shiny berry things and sewed up one side.  I can wear it with the one side flipped up, piratey, or turn it around with the flipped side in the back, where I look like something either out of Austen, or from the POTC movies. Either way, it's cute.  :P

Whoa, I just now noticed your beautiful parasol! It looks like a soft feminine spider web. Gorgeous.

I would really love to one day be able to complete the hat you're wearing in the bottom pic. So pretty.

If you feel you look foolish, it's only because you haven't found the right hat for you yet.  :)  I'm sure there's one out there.

Yeah, like I thought I looked dorky in hats- turns out that I only look good in certain ones... usually ones I can't wear in mundane public though (although... Imperial Officer's hat does look somewhat 'normal')

Aww, thanks ladies.  But seriously, I do look BAD in hats-any kind.  Now, tiaras, that is a whole 'nother thing, I was meant to wear those.   ;)

Hats normally worn at fair:

My cavalier hat made with a $15 hat blank bought at a fur trade rendezvous

My Scottish blue bonnet/balmoral (Everythings better with blue bonnet on it!)
http://historicgames.com/gifs/attire/Strib.jpg

I have a straw hat I bought at AZRF but no pics of it. It's similar to this one:

Hats for later periods

My gold trimmed tricorn with a white cockade bought from Flying Canoe Traders

And the new pith helmet with a Royal Scots badge added to the front.

Speaking of hats, Here's a tricorn tip to try. When my wife made her tricorn she used tiny snaps in the rim hidden in the lace trim rather than permanently sewing up the three sides -that way she can unsnap them so it takes up less room and can nest under another hat while it's in storage, or while traveling. The same thing could be done with a cavalier-style hat that one side folded up.

This is not the greatest pic by far of me in colors with my hat.  For those MNRFers, you may recall seeing me due to the very large Feathers (one red, one yellow).

Hat was purchased from a Merchant who's name I cannot recall out at Bristol.  It was located over by the Joust track along the outside ring of the faire.  The feathers were purchased from Excalibur.

SILVERSTAH! That Flemish thing is GORGEOUS. I'm looking around here for directions to make some appropriate German 1540's Noble Ladies hat. That one really caught my eye.
Fortunately, ah keep mah feathers numbered...for just such an emergency.
