Blathering about hats; new Aviatrix icon.

The "average" girl has a large collection of some clothing item or accessory, like shoes or handbags or lip gloss.

For me, it's hats. Not pretty hats, but ones that meet my dual requirements of being relatively dull-colored yet practical, like my grey fake-fur toque, that olive drab Aussie cap I picked up over winter vacation or my beloved fedora. (That blue beanie I've been wearing all winter is an exception to the dull-colored rule because it matches the blue scarf Vogon gave me last winter.)

Anyway, I've been debating buying a Royal Mail hat from the American Science and Surplus catalog for awhile. Today I was browsing Pop's Leather (they make custom-fit leather at incredible prices) and was distracted from my Royal Mail hat fixation by their Sheepskin Flying Helmet. Could I pull that off or would I look too much like a character from Tank Girl?

...

This is really a gratuitous icon post for my new aviation-related icon: Dave Bryant's Aviatrix character.

I know! I made a polarfleece flying helmet, but it's toddler-sized. I figure I can throw ears and a face on it and turn it into a bear for one of the small people in my life.

Holy moly, do you know how expensive those goggles are? Halcyon's Mark 8 goggles are around $100 directly from them and $50-80 on eBay.

I'll add it to my queue of things I may buy someday.

Vogon looked at me like I was nuts when I told him a flying helmet would be incomplete without the goggles.

I'm the last person who should be giving fashion advice, but I'd say no to the flying hat. And I can't see the royal mail hat!

My idea of a cunning outfit is a pair of jeans, a geeky or children's book art fitted tee, a pair of Crocs-style clogs and my current favorite hat. My sister aptly described it as "displaced summer camp counselor".

The only time current fashion really influences what I wear is when I go out with Vogon. His metrosexual fashion sense makes up for my lack thereof.

Always wanted an aviation helmet myself. They're just so neat. ^_^*

It'd look awesome with your new Spike hair. (:

I know! I think they're part of why getting TDY in Turkey is great for folks shopping for gifts to send home.

Pop's Leather was recommended to me last year by princessbunny or a commenter in her journal.
