New York Police

You can't really make it out, but the badge says "New York Police."  100% legit.  Also, it's made out of cardboard, like a cereal box.

The Lonely Flower

The Lonely flower.  Klappar Maskerad, from the brilliant and creative minds at IKEA (made in Vietnam).

No longer lonely.

Santa Pom Pom

A wintery hat with a Santa-on-a-string pom pom:
It's kinda sorta almost a Christmas Fez.  This hat was hidden behind my bed for about a year, until the last time I moved.  I suspect the guilty party has four legs.

Racoon head

Totally 1956.  Hat donated by the girlfriend's father.  Photo taken months ago.  Post posted now.  Apparently Davy Crockett really did wear one of these things as a joke because of how awesome it is.  See for yourself:

FedEx Horns

A client sent me a bunch of CDs and papers via FedEx, so I folded up the envelope and put it on my head.

Sparkly Purple Baby Hat

After a brief hiatus, this thing.  Which was on my bedroom floor for months, but I finally did laundry.

Operation Infinite Desert Freedom Enduring Dawn Justice Storm Odyssey

As a semi-followup to late March's Muammartacular! here's a six-color desert pattern boonie hat.  I think this is Desert Storm issue.  Also, it's way too small on me and it hurts to wear.

Yet another Old Lady Hat

I don't even remember where this came from.  Unlike some other Old Lady Hats, this one doesn't smell like mothballs or too much perfume.

There are a lot of things being said about the current leader (for now) of Libya, Muammar Gaddafi.  Rather than jump on the bandwagon just to be popular, I'm choosing to point out one of the Gaddafi's shining strengths, his excellent fashion sense:

Bedazzled Pleather

Silly Hats Only: Bedazzled Pleather Baseball Cap Hat
This baseball cap is silver pleather, bedazzled, and has sequins.  Perfect baseball season, right around the corner.  The label says it's by Kids Import (made in China).  Your mother dresses you funny.  It turns out that the Bedazzler website is as awful as the Bedazzler itself.

Montera Picona

The second overseas donation from Rosa.  The Montera Picona is the traditional Asturian hat, made of dark wool and worn by men. It features a pointed tip that was once used to cover the face against the cold, though it is now largely ornamental.

 From the side you can better see the blue and yellow ornamentation.  Blue and yellow are the colors of the Asturian flag and coat of arms.

Elf with Ears

Another elf hat.  This one has ears sewn on to it. 

It turns out that elf ears point towards the back, apparently, whereas Spock ears point towards the front

Also, here is some sort of Spock/elf hybrid, for no reason.

St~Germain, a French liqueur, sends out paper party hats to celebrate New Years.  The Eiffel Tower hat is from 2010 and the windmill is from 2011.  These two hats are on loan from the private collection of a generous donor.
