This cavalier hat is made from a Felt Hat Blank and are one size fits most. This hat has a more finished edge to it than my other listing. Each hat comes with a sweat band inside. I have had several folks buy these in person at my shows and so far they seem to fit a wide variety of heads from small to large. There is a ribbon on the underside of the sweat band that can be pulled to tighten the fit if needed on all hats. I've added 3 new colors and don't have pictures of them made up into a Cavalier yet. I'm showing them pictured as a blank without pin and feathers so you can see the color. You will receive the hat pinned up. My new supplier keeps running out of hats so what I have in stock is what I have with no guarantees of getting anymore or when that would be.
The hat brim measures about 4 1/2 inches depending on where you measure it on the hat. The crowns on all the hats is about 4 inches high. Since these are felt they will stretch a bit when worn and mold themselves to fit your head so the more you wear it the better it will fit.
I secure the hat with a penannular cloak clasp that was hand crafted by my friend Thomas and will also vary slightly from piece to piece. The hat comes with your choice of one large ostrich feather or 2 smaller or other type of feather. If you want a particular color or type of feather please include a note at time of purchase to let me know your choice otherwise I will just choose 2 smaller ones for you. You may also choose between a Nickel or Brass Pin. The hats are pictured with the Brass and the nickel is a silver tone color. The Ostrich feathers can come in white, black, purple, yellow, wine, green, orange, blue, and red. Check to see for availability on feather colors as I may not always have all colors in stock. You may also choose between pheasant and striped turkey quill feathers as well as the 12" Peacock Eye feathers if you are taking the two feather option.
The hat comes with pin inserted and folded up on the side. The feathers come loose in the box to keep them from getting broken during shipping. You simply insert the feathers behind the pin in the fold of the hat. I would suggest tacking them down with needle and thread for added security in case of a windy day. These hats are great for Renaissance Fairs and other re-enactment events. They also make a great pirate or pioneer era hat. The hat may be slightly bent from shipping but is easy to bend back into shape once taken out of the box.

Yes, I made the snoods worn by Alyssa Milano on Charmed. The listing in my shop for a Net Beaded Snood Standard length is the same style that I made for the show. A replica of the Burgundy Snood she wore is the first one you'll see on that listing.
Yes, I have made several different snoods over the years for DMGM Creative Costuming with Disney, Florida. They are worn by Cinderella's dancers in the daily parade as well as several others have appeared in different productions for Disney as well as for shows on the Disney cruise ships.
The length of a snood depends on the thickness and length of ones own hair. If you have fine or average thickness of hair the standard length will work fine. My hair is average and just past the middle of my back and I wear the 8" length. I like having it up off of my back and level with my shoulders. If you'd like it to hang longer or you have longer and/or thicker hair you should go with a longer snood. I would also caution on the Net pattern that if one has very fine or layered hair you might want to choose another pattern. Since the openings are larger on this snood that type of hair may poke through the openings and look messy. A snood with smaller openings works better for ladies with fine hair.
All snoods and bun covers are made to order so please allow 2-4 weeks for delivery of those items. Hats and Renaissance Garb that I sell are in stock and ship out as soon as order is received and processed, taking no more than 2 business days.
