“Fashion is a kind of communication. It’s a language without words. A great hat speaks for itself.” author unknown

A hat is a shameless flatterer, calling attention to an escaping curl, a tawny braid, a sprinkling of freckles over a pert nose, directing the eye to what is most unique about a face. Its curves emphasize a shining pair of eyes, a lofty forehead; its deep brim accentuates the pale tint of a cheek, creates an aura of prettiness, suggests a mystery that awakens curiosity in the onlooker. (Jeanine Larmoth)


Let’s face it, to a lot of avatars, one of the most inspirational pieces in Second Life are hats! Hats, tall ones, frilly ones, artsy ones, and most of all day to day ones! Where I live in the “real world” there isn’t any need for hats, accept perhaps in the summer to ward against sunburn, so one of my greatest joys in Second Life is to don all these magnificent hats that I couldn’t possibly afford in real life. And with increased inworld interest in them, the truly talented milliners have made their presence known.

One of these people is Petalos Clary of Baoba. Today, being in a post Miss Virtual World relaxation mood, I decided to keep it simple for a day of hanging with friends. I am wearing the Velvet Black cap, a sporty velvet “newsboy” cap, the black velvet accentuated with a light smattering of polka dots! To make the hat playfully glam, Baoba included two chicly gauzy hibiscus type flowers. The overall affect of added details in this hats appearance take it from run of the mill, to over the top in elegance.

If you are looking for the defining accessory for whatever you are wearing a particular day, check out Baoba, I know you will find a hat that will make you Gorgeous! After all, saying you don’t look good in a hat is like saying you don’t look good in shoes! So I will leave you with a quote from noted author Felecia Mcmillan, author of Crowns-Portraits of Black Women in Church Hats, “We just know inside that we’re queens. And these are the crowns we wear.”  Taxi:


About the Author

My name is Caoimhe Lionheart. I've lost my Second Life shine these days, not jaded, just resigned. Second Life is filled with so many self-serving people. Them aside, the beautifully kind, intelligent people are the ones I am drawn to. I feel it's incredibly special and unique on the occasions that I meet someone who is sincere in nature, kind to the bone and their beauty shines from within. Now those people, and I have met quite a few, they are the reason Second Life is uniquely wonderful and special to me. I am a prankster and a gad about. I love to laugh and create fun and I have a real bad Fashion addiction. My friends call me Cao (and I am pretty sure they are saying Cow) but thats okay, it kinda fits. I enter contests to show off the abilities of the photographer or clothes I am wearing, not for the pursuit of the win and I always enjoy a good chat. Thanks for the read, perhaps one day you too will be a friend. =)
