Project Cubbins: Hat 358 Pink and (Cameron) Silver Birthday Princess Edition

Day 358 / Hat 358: Pink conical plastic cap printed with the words "Birthday Princess" on front. Additional details include pink feather trim and top fluff, elastic chin strap, and pink folded fabric rose and bow detail.

Interior cloth tag reads: "Little Day Dreamers by elope" on one side and "hand made in China, spot clean only." Interior paper tag reads: "95% PVC, 5% other."

I've been ferrying this hat, from the MRBOH back and forth from home waiting for the appropriate birthday to pop up on my social media radar. When I saw on the Facebook that it was Cameron Silver's birthday today, I took it as a sign from the hat gods that it was time to plop this bad boy atop my balding pate and preserve it photographically on behalf of the Project.

The hat-tip to Marilyn -- and a symbolic assist (not to mention a "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" shoutout) to the birthday boy, CS.

PC 357: Rib-Knitty Cat
PC 356: Brim Be Crazy
PC 355: R.E.D. Head

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
