Occasionally I wandered in where I was not wanted and gave truthful answers.
Sometimes I even did it deliberately. A little disruption now can prevent disaster later.

Hatband experiment

It started simply. I wanted a wizard’s hat. Part of it probably came out of rereading a Harry Dresden novel. Part of it probably came out of a science fiction story I read once where the hatband messed with sensors trained on the guy’s face. And part of it was just because I like hats.

The hat I chose wasn’t all that unusual. After experimenting some, I decided it wasn’t necessarily a hat I wanted, but a hatband that I could use on several hats.

So over time, I carefully picked the parts I wanted to use. Hematite
beads with a twist. Copper buttons. A kevlar thread for strength, intertwined with two silk threads for the spellforms.

I’m still not perfectly happy with the hatband. It’s heavy for one thing. Sometimes the weight gives me a headache. And it’s not something for casual wear. It comes closer than I’d like to ritual garb. And I can’t find a clasp I like.

I’ve taken it apart and put it back together several times. It’s done several things over the years. And it’s never been quite right.

Still, it’s a good experiment and I’ve learned from putting that hatband together.
