01:01 pm - Weird head-gear
I just came to a rather stunning conclusion about why a bunch of Druid orgs wear those weird hats and sometimes fake beards. . . And white robes!

I have to write it up, still, but I think it has to do with powdered wigs.

Seriously.

(Here's hoping I can put it together in a coherent mess before I have to turn in my paper!)

Ah--I think I see where you're going. Has to do with the ornamentation of the time period when the Druidic Revival was begun. Yes, the 17th and 18th centuries were ostentatious times.

Good point, if that's what you're intending. I'll have to remember that for my book. (Due credit, of course)

*grins* Thanks. It's actually somewhat more complicated, and has to do with the entire idea behind why wigs were popular. . . Or else, it's so simple that it's irreducible. *shrugs* I'm not sure yet. I'm still trying to figure it all out.

But I'd like to be a footnote, if you don't mind. I always wanted to be one.

Two words: Lawn gnomes.

'Nuff said.

Of course, being from an area where hunters abound, I feel the only appropriate color for druid robes is blaze organge.
