Horned hennin documentation

My second attempt at a Horned Hennin. This hat is made of dark red cotton velvet and embellished with faux pearls and metal billaments.

On January 20, 2018 I’ll be presenting my research, documentation, and finished hat for comment only at Montengarde’s Twelfth Night. I’m not entering the competition to be Montengarde’s next A&S champion (since I only stepped down as Kingdom champion in November!). I wanted to share my documentation here – in case I need a digital version at the event!

UPDATE
Here’s a photo that the Baroness of Montengarde took of my display at Twelfth Night!
