“I have exactly 15 hats, one for each of my personalities.”

I had the opportunity for a private sneak peek of the upcoming Art in Hats. I have visited 47 hats at Art in Hats at least two times so far, and there have been more added since that time. This does not include those set aside in the auction ring. My first time at Art in Hats so I had a decent idea of what to expect, the title gives me a big hint. What I didn’t realize was that they would not be just hats or just beautiful hats. This is a festival of intricate designs of all type not restricted to that which is usually hat material. Instead walking around and viewing these pieces I had to remind my self they ARE hats and can be worn.

Sure some of them are easy to recognize as traditional hats. Those do not shine any less than the others they offer a different taste of that artist’s vision. I confess to buying two hats, my personal budget, and they were had choices. More about those later along. Let me chat a bit about specific hats as I only found one blog that does give specifics so far.

I was pleasantly surprised to see Circa Ghost put in two entries. I associate her builds as SIM large so it was fascinating to see what this Serbian artist decided to put in her small pieces. One has one of her characters on the brim and the other hat has a desolate building on it. Complete in the most minute detail. Very clever.

Crazy Fish was one of the two hats I purchased. I was already captivated by the whole crazy and those who know me will not be surprised in the least. The moment I met the artist and his flashy avi, had a few stilted words in Mandarin Chinese with him, I was sold. Here is a web link to view some of his work, it is outstanding.

There are more than one Bowler hat in this contest. The Bowler hat originated with a hat made for Edward Coke in 1849. He was a British soldier and the brother of the 2nd Earl of Leicester. My personal experience is that the Bowler is popular with Johannes1977 and indeed he is one of the two artists using this hat. His hat is an amusing “Just Bugging Bowler” you will have to see it to know what it is bugging. The other artist using a Bowler has titled her hat ‘Magritte Apple Bowler [Porcelain]’. Another clever and cheeky title as her hat pays homage to the 1946 painting by Belgian surrealist painter, Rene Magritte and his work “The Son of Man”.

As to Johannes1977, he has a couple other clever hats. One caught my eye straight away titled ‘Rubix Cube Fancy’. It is colorful, apt and I want to buy it to solve the cubes I believe he was in a bright mode when he was doing his designs as the other hat he brings us here is Bright Ideas Fancy Hat with a petite black hat accessorized with its own bevy of light bulbs.

There is the hat ‘Paperclips’ where I imagine someone who cleverly thinks of this usage of paper clips while working at a boring office while others nap or surf the internet in down times. And clips glitter nicely.

With Sundae Beret, I like the name, I like the look and this artist has an image of the model wearing the hat that is perhaps one of the most outstanding images here. Those who chose to include an image along with the hat were wise to do so, these images give another piece of the puzzle to why the artist would, say, make a hat like a Dali egg.

Another hat with a wonderful image behind it is the pink ice floppy sun hat.
The image is like a negative where the pink floppy hat is very pink and all other image details are black. When I viewed the Phaedra hat I thought about Metropolis the silent movie. The look is very Metropolis, yet dear readers the Phaedra of the Greek Gods was treated poorly and treated others poorly. She accused a man she loved of raping her to the point of getting a curse put on him. Interesting possibilities all around.

The other hat I bought was Death to a Romantic Hat. The title, the Spanish styling, but the title, was too good to me. It goes well with my black gowns.

On attending these events, absolutely attend whatever you may schedule. This is not only viewing hats but has a much bigger meaning. You may enjoy art and support a very worthy cause. Diabetes is a serious illness in the world with high sugar and poor diets. It is a painful way to live if you happen to have it. Be generous with your support of the hats and the cause. At the end of the day, you will smile about these hats. There is no cat in any hat, but you will be a cool cat if you wear them. Artfully Yours; Seersha Heart
