Henry VIII wore this Hat

I'm Henry the 8th, I'am

This hat style at least within the reinactmant circles I belong to was called a 'Cow Pat hat'.

The hat is made of same fabric used in the coat. 

Under it I'm wearing black lace edged coif. 

This hat was made by my good friend SamK ( she is in the mustard yellow dress in the photo below) as part of the full head to toe costume she made to allow me to play Henry VIII for several Living History performances I did. 

The photo below was taken at Skipton Castle and the one above at Lincoln Bishops Palace.
