Project Cubbins: Hat 407 - My Old Bat Self Edition

Day 407 / Hat 407: Black pointy bat ears with purple interior ear accents and two black cords that allow it to be tied under the chin.

The final hat in the PFQ, these ears come to the project from Bremerton, Washington, and Nancy Williams says of their provenance: "... the bat hat was part of one, of a pair, of children'scostumes which enabled [husband] Erik and me to effortlessly go as guano merchants one Halloween."

Thanks to her kind donation to the Project, you might say the costume is guano -- but not forgotten.

And with that groan-inducing pun I offer a final, well-deserved hat-tip to Team Painter for their four-pack of headgear. You've brought much delight to the top of my 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.
