Hats, Specifically Piratey Hats

I’m off to the Georgia RWA National Conference on Thursday. I have my bag mostly packed, I’m flying a red eye from the WestCoast on Wednesday night, so I’m packing and gathering stuff. Been doing this for a week or so, wanting to look nice for Moonlight And Magnolias.

And I decided I really did need a hat. A brown hat, to tie into the brown shows I’m taking…

I have pirate hats…but they are all black and loaded with feathers. Hard to travel with, honestly. So….

I went shopping. I found a nice brown derby style hat. Fit. Right color. I can make this work…

Had a nice brim, trimmed good, hatband with a bow…


It wasn’t in the proper style. Nothing…pirate about it.

So, I toyed with it…and now I have a new hat to wear to the conference!

I added a blue flower because my colors for this conference are blue and brown…

I will post pics of meself all done up proper when back!

Yes, everything can be pirateized!






  1. So cute!

    I hope you have a fantastic time and I wish I could be there with you! I’ll be looking for any tweets from you and Terri this weekend so I can live vicariously!

    Good luck!


  2. I wish you were with us, too! Finish your book so you can justify coming to the cons to pitch!

  3. This made me smile. I passed a young man waiting for the light to change at an intersection today and he was wearing a tricorn. He looked rather dashing. Enjoy!

  4. Most gentleman will acquire dash-hood when wearing a tricorn… 😉
