Silly Hat Day: A Story in Pictures

March 1, 2013 | By Brent Almond | MAKING MEMORIES

On a cold, rainy day not too long ago, I had a brain fart of forethought, gathered all the hats from all over the house, and declared it henceforth be known as (cue trumpets)… Silly Hat Day!

In all honesty, I needed a break from playing superheroes (or coloring them, or watching them on TV). And it actually turned out to be more of a Silly Two-and-a-half Hours, but it was nonetheless a fun diversion during an otherwise dreary day.

Let the silliness commence!

I wonder if we've got enough silly to fill all these hats?

Silly Hat Day starts out a little on the grumpy side.

JJ as The Mad Hatter. He's very Method.

Be vewwy quiet, I'm hunting wabbits... with my adowableness.

.

With great power comes giant head.

.

Gettin' crafty. Love me some foam paper!

.

Looks good, but you gotta see to fight crime.

.

Better! But more "Where the Wild Things Are" than Batman. Not that he cares.

.

Umm, yeah. Portuguese Water Dogs do NOT need rain hats.

.

Yeehaw! Silly Hat Day is almost over!

.

Grr? Squeak? Whatever sound a muskrat makes?

.

Thomas the Train meets Flashdance. Or something.
