Hitty’s Royal Wedding Challenge



The royal nuptials of Prince William and Catherine Middleton are soon upon us and, as Hitty has a penchant for inserting herself (and righteously so) into any occasion of import, The Wiregrass Hitties and Mad for the Farthing Crowd announce Hittygirls first ever:


~*~Royal Wedding Challenge~*~


            The task?  Design, execute and photograph a hat worthy of Hitty’s attendance at the Royal Wedding.  The challenge begins April 1, 2011 and all photos should be placed in the “Royal Wedding” album no later than Friday, April 29th, 2011, the date of the ceremony at Westminster Abbey.


            Guidelines?  Imagine a chapeau slightly shy of Carmen Miranda yet able to provoke envy in Hyacinth Bucket…er….Bouquet – a hat that will cause banks of cameras to swivel in Hitty’s direction, but, of course, in the “best of taste”.  Here is a top-notch opportunity to use every bit of frippery hiding in the bottom of your sewing box – feathers, jewels, silks, sequins, ribbon!  The challenge is to create a hat, but if you are inspired, please consider dressing your Hitty in something equally divine.


            Challenge, not a contest.  This is a photo challenge and the fun is in the making and sharing, so no prizes will be offered.
