Librarian Hat

I have named this hat a Librarians hat, as I think it has a scholarly look however it's not mortar board which is a hat most associated with scholars.

A basic cotton cone of fabric with an elasticated brim to hold it comfortably and firmly on the head

 The hat is decorated with decorative fabric tape/bias binding/trim.

This is a version of a Nightcap, perhaps a bit baggier than normal.

Feathered headpiece

This feathered headpiece is based on 1920’s Flapper Headband.

It was advertised as  1920s Great Gatsby Headband Carnival headpiece.

However, it was actually intended to be used to provide an additional imposing item for an Egyptian based culture as in the photo below.

Combined with the feather collar and bit of jewellery it gave to look and cost less than five pounds.
