Sherlock Holmes Or Deerstalker Hat - Lightweight
I went to two costume parties with this hat, a trench coat I got at a thrift store, and a meerschaum pipe I bought several years ago. It was my attempt to look like the standard depiction of Sherlock Holmes. Despite the fact that Holmes would never wear such a thing in the city, it helped me 2 prizes. I won 1st prize at the smaller party, with only 5 or 6 other contestants, and 3rd prize at the much larger party with a couple dozen other contestants. Awesome.
