One of my favorite experiences growing up was the TV “movie” Dr. Seuss’s “Cat in the Hat.” If you peruse my flickr, you will see I wear them, well, quite often to say the least. Though I can’t truly say the Cat in the Hat has caused my obsessive love oh hats, I like to think it had something to do with it because I always find hats to be the perfect pick me up to a otherwise dull dress-up day.
Anyone who has been in Second Life for any length of time remembers how atrocious hats used to be, OMGoodness, do you recall? First of all, they were HUGE! To make matters worse, your hairs would stick out everywhere on them! It was not a happy time to be addicted to hats, for sure. But now, wow, there are so many incredible hats, and even hats with hairs out there on the market. When I do an art pic, I love to wear hats, they add an added dimension of focal point to the artwork.
One of my favorite hatmakers is Agnes Finney. She makes the most incredible hats to sell in her My Precious stores, from the elegant to the extraordinary, she has made them all. Forgive first, that this is only a snapshot of a hat that would be much the more beautiful with a conscientuous photographer, but even with my limited skills with photoshop, you can see what a luscious work of art it truly is. This hat is called the Angel Hope Feather and it lives completely to its name. It has the most delightful flower to bring a smile to the face, sweet feathers to uplift the spirits and is an elegant addition to whatever outfit you are wearing. If you have a special event planned, or want to create a favored picture, I would suggest checking them out. I know you will not be disappointed. I know I wasn’t <3
