The Girl In The Hat

1 The Girl In The Hat

There is just something about a girl in a hat. She may be an ordinary girl with doubts about herself, but when she puts on a hat, she changes. Whether it is a beret, a wide-brimmed sun hat or a fedora, when she places it carefully atop her head something magical happens. It is as if a prince has crowned her with a tiara. She is more confident, whimsical and proud. She transforms from a wallflower to the belle of the ball. All eyes turn to her as she enters a room, a lovely centrepiece to be admired.

She is simply perfection, this girl in the hat.

  1. Yes, right on there Peep… for me, I find them the hardest things to fit in sl. I have a few and love them but unless I wear them without hair (OMG) I hardly ever put one on!

    1. lol yes, that can be a challenge. Two suggestions – hair attachments like a ponytail or bun with a matching hairbase work for a lot of hats. Check out Amacci – I know there are others, but that is my go to. The other tip is to make sure you have some non-mesh hair that is hat friendly and you can edit. That is what I did in this picture. It is much more time consuming, but I love having more than a ponytail with most hats 🙂 Make sure you make a copy before editing the linked parts, though, because the hair will never be wearable without a hat again lol

  2. Thanks for those tips, I will try them.
    Also loved the the back view you took with this photo and her Rose Tattoo

    1. That tattoo, my eyes and Slink hands are about the only things I never take off 🙂

      Oh, when editing the hair, don’t be afraid to stuff bits into your head. Amazingly, it doesn’t poke your eye from behind 😉

Talk to me! (please? )
