It’s the end of September, which means if you’re a person who actually plans things, you should have started your hunt for the perfect Halloween costume about a week ago. And while you’re sifting through mounds and mounds of top hats and Cleopatra headdresses, we think you should consider the one hat to rule them all: Princess Beatrice of York‘s royal wedding hat.
The Philip Treacy creation sparked an immediate response among the billions of people who watched the princess get out of her Rolls Royce on Kate Middleton and Prince William‘s wedding day. It quickly had its own Facebook page and Tumblr and eventually got auctioned off for charity. The same thing probably won’t happen if you wear the replica on offer from Headline Costumes, but it might get a few good laughs from whoever sees you wearing it.
On April 29, 2011 the world changed forever. Princess Beatrice went from “That Weight Watcher Lady’s Daughter” to “That Girl with the Ridiculous Royal Wedding Hat.” To think, that one little hat changed what’s her name’s life forever….
Oh, what’s her name. Check out the costume here and tell us if you’ll be wearing it on All Hallow’s Eve.
