Day 445 / Hat 445: Black velvet bucket hat with two metal grommets and over-the-top chicken details including white felt wings with gold and red felt applique details, two gold, velvet three-toe claws, red, gold and white felt tail feathers, gold velvet beak, red felt tongue, black and white hard plastic eyes and red felt cockscomb nestled in a halo of white head fur.
The sixth and final installment of the DSAOH, it's hard to tell what part of this hat makes me laugh more -- the extensive chicken detailing (you're extensive chicken detailing) or the fact that it adorns a black velvet bucket hat. Either way, a sincere vote of thanks to Dianna Scott back in the 802 for trusting me with her menagerie of whimsical millinery.

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.
