Day 412 / Hat 412: White conical Asian hat made of papier-mâché with gold metallic detail at top. This hat was worn by the pinata version of Sensei Wu before it was whacked from his round yellow head full of candy and toys at a six-year-old's Ninjago-themed birthday party earlier today.
According to the Lego Brickapedia (who knew?) Sensei Wu is a Lego Ninjago
minifigure who serves as the Ninjas' sensei and in addition to the hat, he traditionally sports a long, white beard and mustache (which I'm holding in my right hand in the above photo). The birthday boy's younger brother Freddy is the fellow in my arms, he was a little put out as he was too young to be allowed to play whack-a-sensei.
The birthday party was super cute and the tip of the hat goes, unwittingly, to young master George the birthday boy who will be going to sleep this evening no doubt a very tired but happy Ninjago birthday boy.

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.
