Hats To The Heavens!

I’m a hat loving, hat wearing kind of gal! Further, I love costuming. So, you’ll quite understand how I have so many fabulous photos of wondrous hats, taken at the Bristol Renaissance Faire

A wild creature perches upon this witch’s hat, zoom in and you might see it!

One noble’s hat was adorned with trimmed feathers on their individual rachis. I thought they made a clever ornament!

And nothing like prettily fashioned hairstyles and delicate lace collars to add to the elegance of these women’s hats!

How special the simplicity of this young lady’s cap…

How daring the effect of an artful tilt and golden feathers. Fantastic!

And at their prayers…

Truly an excellent ensemble, one lady so richly adorned in blue…

There simply are no lack of smiling faces, and thoughtfully designed hats on this festival day!
