I had been looking at this hat for a long time, and finally decided I had to have it. So glad I did! It is so beautiful, elegant, well made. I bought it for my renaissance/Halloween costumes, and can't wait to wear it!

I absolutely adore this hat! My mother gifted me this hat for my most recent birthday, knowing that I have an extreme fondness for dramatic Gothic fashion. If I could include a photo of myself wearing it, I absolutely would. It's a perfect fit for me, and is definitely a taller hat. It's not a tiny one that your head can hit the inside top of, as well. The tulle that covers your face in the front gives the wearer an air of mystery, as well as a tinge of sultry vibrance. I will most definitely be getting some use out of this hat, especially when I don my steel boned corsets.

I bought this as a gift for my daughter which I know she will love. I have fantastic experience with items I have ordered from Victorian Trading Co., so I expected this to be high quality and I was not disappointed. The hat is exactly as promised.

This hat is just gorgeous! The fit and finish of this is beyond what I paid for it. I will be wearing it for Halloween but you could wear it for any formal occasion. Makes you long for the bygone era when these hats were worn daily! You won't go wrong with this purchase.
