Hey, ladies, “buy by the kit and save” when you make your own hats! From Fox Millinery Supply Spring-Summer Catalog 1966.
And, “Fruit & Berry Hats To Copy” — because, unlike Carmen Miranda, you need “new ideas,” and “helpful hints” to make “‘THOSE’ Clever Small Hats.” (Also included, “Make An Easter & Summer Veil Hat.”) From the 1961 Louie Miller catalog.
As Ann Miller clearly explains.
Charlton Heston would have you think that a future world ruled by monkeys would be medieval and brutal in nature, in which chimpanzees and gorillas and orangutans are castes in a worldwide religion based on the first monkey to rise up and destroy all humans. Fortunately for lovers of the truth, I’m just back from the future, and I bring you this political poster, pulled straight off the wall at an army recruiting center:
If monkeys rise up and overwhelm humanity, this is what the Planet of the Apes will really look like – because people forget that monkeys are totally crazy. (actual poster by this guy)
Yup, just plain “high”; no sky. Me thinketh it’s the fumes off the pink and orange polyester — fumes so strong, the hats have shrunk. Which means they could just be retro Burger King employees. (Via Boogie Children.)
I’m pretty sure that’s monkey fur on Evelyn Brent’s hat, shoes, and skirt…
Some days, you’re just sitting around with a couple knitting needles and a few skeins of wool, and you think to yourself, “self, I really should knit myself a viking.” So you go to work, without really thinking about how one would really knit a viking, but you’re a dedicated crafter, and in the end your result looks like this:
And then the entire Reddit world totally freaks out at your awesomeness. (via)
Mrs. Skele Ton has friends — and you can find out how to crochet her hat and make her other clothes — at her home, Minna’s Doll World.
So warns this risque vintage postcard (via A Slip Of A Girl). I’m guessing that artist Tony Roy expected lady’s underpants to be worn as hats at some point in the evening… Which only further drives home the point about imbibing too much. So here’s to a happy & safe New Year’s Eve, for you, your panties and your hats.
PS I love that the “i” is upside down in “liquor.”
Normally for “And Some Sort Of A Hat” posts I prefer actual photos, but this series by Vera Brosgol is too charming to exclude. (You might also want to see my post about vintage bird hats at my other blog.)
