Lent 1

For those of you in the doldrums of Lent 1, we thought we’d raise your already flagging spirits with an entirely gold lamé Spanish bonete; nothing quite says penitence, fasting, and abstinence like an utterly unrepentant hat. Proof if proof were needed that you simply cannot over-accessorize.

Surely another piece of adornment for statuary you say, but no; this is in fact to be worn by a Pentecostal apostle. You might accuse us of being a bit of a broad church here at this frousty gothic convent, but we’re always happy to entertain the inventive.

We’re in for it if Mother Prioress gets wind, but for the next few days we’ll try to post some of our more unusual confections for your delectation. Before we’re handed the flagellum. Again.

  1. Gold? The photo shows it black-oxidized Goth.
    Definitely a Steam Punk Biretta which should be worn with Doc Martin gaiters (with chrome chains).
