So... admiring all the lovely hats in this thread, while simultaneously cleaning the garb room. How does everyone store their hats, particularly the ones with elaborate trimmings? I'm guilty of hanging mine from bedposts, where they do get fairly dusty in the off-season, and at the moment there is a rather Slobokidna-esque stack of them on a cabinet in my bedroom... There must be a better way, but many are too large/adorned to fit well in hat boxes.

Hat boxes, from Hobby Lobby!!!!! I had a stack of them I was using to store various patterns and other non-hatly things. When reorganizing the sewing room, and trying to figure out where the heck to put my hats, I had an epiphany... the stinkin' hat boxes, duh!

  I just may have to do that.  I have a couple of hats now that qualify as  'non stack-able'; which is what hat boxes are for....
    I will hie myself to Hobby Lobby, or perhaps to Gordman's .  They have them in the home fashion department as decorations, and they are very probably cheaper than the Lobby....

I decided that the answer to "feather or no feather" is "three feathers." Of course now that I've started, I might very well add some more.  ;D

Oh yes!  I love the feathers.  They make the hat pop.

Thanks! I just got back from the thrift store where I found the PERFECT earrings to go with it. No only large, scrolled hoops for the bottom holes, but two sets of small hoops to go above them. All scrolled in a dark metal that looks like pirate treasure or something. I'm so psyched to see how everything will look together. :)

I'm not sure it counts as a hat, but it's certainly headgear!

I made my first French hood a few weeks ago! My garb just didn't seem complete without some sort of headgear. :D This image is before I added the black hood part on the back, but I have no photos of it complete in decent lighting yet!
