This is an example of what the hat looks like on:
Ok, so it’s poofy and kinda floppy, but I’m trying to edit that.
I made the hat below, as is, but much much smaller, on Saturday!
(Please take into account that Baby Alive has a newbornish size head and that Fancy Nancy has a lot of wild curls stuffed into the hat.)
It’s cute, I think. It looks like a little hat. What type of hat? It’s debatable. I call it a paperboy hat (aka – newsboy; pageboy). It’s like hats popularly adorned by “paperboys” while selling newspapers in the streets circa 1920’s. Mike tells me that it looks like a train conductor’s hat, which irritates me. I think he says it A: because it’s striped. Therefore, according to him, every striped hat in existence must be a train conductor’s. B: because he admittedly has never heard of a “newsboy” nor has seen any movies staged in or around the 1920’s. C: because he loves to irritate me. D: all of the above.
This is a newsboy hat:
This is a train engineer’s hat:
This is a golfer’s hat:
All similar, yet very different!
