Project Cubbins: Hat 386 - Gangsta Kitty Edition

Day 386 / Hat 386:Beige woven straw fedora with Hello Kitty applique on left side of crown. Additional detail includes pink hatband with allover print butterflies with matching bow in back of hat, white crown lining and white sweatband.

Pink interior label has Hello Kitty on front (with the name Ava handwritten underneath) and the words "Hello Kitty by Sanrio" on back along with the words: "used under license, ABG Accessories." Secondary tag reads: "one size, made in China."

Hat three of the quartet of wayward hats from the MRBOH, this obviously belonged to Princess Ava.

For those of you keeping track, with this fedora the Project now has a genuine hat-trick of "Hello Kitty" themed lids. To save you the searching (Did you know you could search the hats to date by key word by using the box in the upper left of the screen?) the first was PC 339 ("Hello Knitty Cap") and the second was PC 357 (Neon Rib-Knit Kitty).

Of all of them, in my opinion this is the most gangster one. When I put it on I immediately wanted to steal everyone's lunch money and act up during nap time.

A Year Ago Today In Project Cubbins

Q: OK, nice hat -- but what exactly is Project Cubbins, anyway?

A: One man's homage to Dr. Seuss and his second book, "The 500 Hats of Bartholemew Cubbins," which celebrated the 75th anniversary of its publication in 2013, Project Cubbins is an attempt to document the wearing of a different hat or piece of headgear every day for 500 consecutive days. No do-aheads, no banking of hats, no retroactive entries. PC started on May 27, 2013 with Hat 1
