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.
