See these ladies and gentlemen here? They gave me inspiration.
Firefly/Serenity hat quote
(for my fellow geeks out there)
Jayne: (wearing ugly homemade hat) "How's it sit? Pretty cunning, don'tchya think?"Go big or go home.
Kaylee: "I think it's the sweetest hat ever."
Book: "Makes a statement."
Jayne: "Yeah, yeah!"
Wash: "A man walks down the street in that hat, people know he's not afraid of anything."
Jayne: "Damn straight."
So, I bought the biggest sun hat I could find. Then I bought out the dollar store craft section. This was the result.
We went to a tea room for the party. Ladies were taking my picture left and right. My mom had to stick me in the corner, though: no one wanted to get knocked in the head by my larger than life hat!
Not only did I wear this to my mother's tea party, but I was able to wear it again at a tea party for my daughter's Girl Scout troop. I won first prize for the best hat. Are you surprised?
