With Winter Bash 2017 nearing its end - another 3 days and all the hats go back in the box - why don't we take the opportunity to show off our hats and display our achievements? You can screenshot your hats and post an answer below, and show off your posh headgear!

Post hats, hats, and more hats! Those that you're especially proud of, or that you simply look good in - all are welcome ;)

    hmm... looks like many people here consider this as kind of poll hence off topic. Personally I think it's on topic, but it appears to be only the minority opinion and that the question is going to be closed and heavily downvoted. (Just saying, it doesn't mean you should delete - let those who hate fun delete it themselves if they can. That said, I can't find past similar threads, and sure there were, so it means they were all deleted) – Shadow Wizard Dec 27 '17 at 19:06

    This is pretty squarely on-topic. After all, we usually wrap up the event with a blog post that showcases some interesting or funny uses of hats, what better way to not overlook something than to set up a place where folks can just submit them? I'll reopen this if it gets closed. – Tim Post Dec 27 '17 at 19:08

    @TimPost but the question isn't "post your favorite"... it's "post them all"... which isn't interesting to me. It's one thing to post your full hat collection view or just a couple of favorites and another to post an individual image of your avatar wearing each and every hat. – Catija Dec 27 '17 at 19:18

    I'll step out of it, and enjoy a long-awaited vacation. Happy holidays everyone! – Tim Post Dec 27 '17 at 19:21

    @Catija - I've removed the part about the entire collection. – Mithrandir Dec 27 '17 at 19:47

    I don't know why this is still being downvoted! Why kill all fun? – Jǝssǝ Dec 28 '17 at 9:30

    Chat is where this belongs, not Meta. – Nij Dec 28 '17 at 19:54

    @Nij - Why? What's wrong with posting it on meta? See also Tim's comment above. – Mithrandir Dec 28 '17 at 21:03

    Tim supports having a place to do this. The place to do this is Chat, where you can establish a room specifically for it. – Nij Dec 28 '17 at 21:06
  • 2
    Or the place to do it is here, since here is fine. Tim didn't mention anything about chat while advocating that it was on topic. – doppelgreener Dec 28 '17 at 22:36

    @Nij Winterbash is a function/usage of SE, at this time of year. There are other questions about Winterbash that are fully on-topic and about what they reference or how to obtain them. Would you also argue that those are off-topic? Or the Moose and Silly Putty question, which is in a similar vein to this, just not started by the SE team. Is that question off-topic? – Kendra Dec 29 '17 at 14:14
  • 2
    This isn't a question about function or usage. It's just "tell me about stuff you've got". A question asking for the strangest questions or most amusing answers from the year is equivalent - it would be downvoted and closed pretty quickly. I also downvoted the Moose thing as well, as I fail to see how it had any relevance to running SE. @Kendra – Nij Dec 29 '17 at 19:49
  • 2
    @Nij To be fair, I fail to see how the Moose thing - a question started by a member of SE staff on behalf of SE to announce a network wide contest / promotion would not be relevant to SE. – SPArchaeologist Jan 2 at 14:31

    This is now featured in the official blog post... and to think people voted to close this at first as off topic. lol – Shadow Wizard Jan 10 at 15:19

Where there's smoke there's fire.

I figured out a way to wear multiple hats! I can only easily change the last one I put on though ...

I'll handle It, I Think, and You Get a Hat - Just Jesting :)

And when I want to disguise myself - It's a Me!

    "Now I'm Fascinating"... Anyone else think that looks like a face hugger from Alien shown like that? – Jon Clements Dec 27 '17 at 18:19
  • @JonClements Yeah, me. It was deliberate :) – DavidPostill Dec 27 '17 at 18:20
  • You used screenshots to wear multiple hats, right? – NH. Dec 27 '17 at 19:46
  • @NH. Oh dear, I've been rumbled ;) – DavidPostill Dec 27 '17 at 19:47
  • You're a few years behind this guy. – Monica Cellio Dec 28 '17 at 22:44

I used picture of Leonardo DiCaprio, one of my favorite actors, as avatar for this Winter Bash.

And here are my favorite hats.

    Sure this isn't a summary of "Catch Me If You Can"? :p – Jon Clements Dec 28 '17 at 7:44

Here are some of my favorite hats/ones with interesting stories. For a full list of my hats, see revision history.

Hero Of Time | Sherlock

This one was interesting - the question I asked for this hat unexpectedly hit HNQ, and it's now my top-voted question on the network... and I also posted a late self-answer to it that got 50+ upvotes and the Sherlock hat, none of which I had intended to happen when I asked the question (I had expected it to not go higher than 10).

Hat combo time!

Think! & I'll Handle It

enter image description here

Think! & Some Kind Of Sun Thingy

This is possibly my favorite. The way the background of the picture works makes it look like it's slightly cloudy, and the bow in the hair works. Overall, it colors up the picture a bit.

Did y'all know Vader likes Tacos?

Taco Vader

I think the Force is strong with this hat. And Vader didn't even have to Force it on; it fits perfectly!

I'll show myself out now...

I also like these hats, they fit rather snugly.

I find that the Rep Cap works equally well as a cap and as a beard.

And some more hat fun:

Some people here think this hat is a beard. They don't know it's really a mustache:

    @NogShine Actually it's a onesie, not a T-shirt. And the fun fact is that I won it (or actually my son won it) after wearing a hat on Winter Bash 2014 in a very cute way. – Eran Dec 28 '17 at 8:00
  • The rep cap a beard? I thought it was a chin warmer! – Jǝssǝ Dec 30 '17 at 14:20

I always have a very difficult time to get a hat that works for my profile picture because I am not facing directly into the camera, but I think this one suits me very well:

When you got the second highest number of hats, you got to show off:

My usual avatar:

The big bad cat himself!


Whosaysbigcatsdon'twearhats's hatted avatars:

My personal favourites:

Oh, Waffles are a tasty treat,
With golden syrup thick and sweet,
Or chocolate, melting, spread on top,
Once you've started, how hard to stop!

Oh toasted Waffles, firm and brown,
The sticky syrup running down,
With ice-cream, maybe, smooth and cold,
Or Waffle wonders yet untold!

That juicy Waffle waiting there,
A thing to eat and not to wear!
Why make you hats of such a treat?
Why waste you what is best to eat?

Oh tasty Waffle fair to see,
Your end has come, you come to me!
Then at last a sigh I'll heave,
Your end was right, and none need grieve.

Scrumptious Waffle, a memory now,
Your kin still grace another's brow!
But still kept you your purpose true,
For such enjoyment I thank you!


The catter hatter, up with hats for cats!
(Long live the Cat-in-the-Hat)


Division identified, Sir.


Some Christmas Cheer,
But don't come near,
Unless you have no fear,
The Cat himself is here!


Its-a me!
(So watch your step!)


Quite Egyptian!

Have I seen your Unicorn? (burp) No, never!!

I'm proud of a couple hats that just don't look all that good on me. (Wait, when did I develop a fashion sense??) But here are some others.

I always try to find something to do with the coffee cup in my gravatar. This year, something disturbingly bright and cheery is trying to crawl out of it, Alien-style:

Just Jesting

This hat provides a good disguise:

Silencium

This hat doesn't stand out as a hat; maybe I'm just having a bad hair day:

And YOU Get a Hat!

And, well, even if it doesn't look particularly splashy on me, I am pretty proud of this one:

This is my picture profile "with a Hat earned in WinterBash 2016":

And there is a few options I have in mind:

These are hats which fit very well for my avatar.


This fits good and also goes well with my name. ;D

    That mustache is probably the best hat trick I've seen! – NH. Jan 3 at 21:54

This is my first year participating in the winter bash, and I was really happy when I got the Red hat!!

Here is how I wore some hats:

Its gift time hat!

Some decorations!

I think the one I'm wearing is the best fit for my particular (very-difficult-to-hat) avatar:
