ENTER | SF/F Avatar Contest | Planet of Hats

OK then, since it falls to me to do this again - and since I don't want to pick some obscure English subject that most of you will claim never to have heard of... - this contest is about the Planet of Hats! In other words, depictions of alien culture as represented by strange and outlandish headgear - the weirder the better. (So not sci-fi characters wearing ordinary hats like most of the Doctor Whos for instance.)

Usual rules apply, and entries stay open for 72 hours or so.

Though, there are some bizarre hats on characters in Doctor Who

Nice one od0_ital

Thanks. I'm tryin' to remember, but I'm pretty sure that the first time is the only time the Cardassians were shown to use those things.

Not even the DS9 flashback episodes had 'em...

I don't think this would qualify as alien headgear ...


... so I have this alternative:

Any more hats?

I'm a bit busy for the next couple of days, so I think I'll leave entries open for a little longer - let's see some more crazy headgear.

That's not a very strange hat. It's a strange creature in a normal looking hat.
