Day 119: Obligatory Royal Wedding Post

29 Apr

First, a note about the site. If you look at the sidebar, you will notice that I’ve added categories and tags. I wasn’t able to actually go through and tag each and every entry yet but I’m going to do that little by little throughout the next few days because although this task helps to organize my posts, it is also incredibly tedious.

On to the actual post!

I was planning on making a Royal Portrait of the newlyweds for my Obligatory Royal Wedding Post. It was a very good plan. I had preliminary sketches too. I was just waiting to see what Kate’s dress was going to look like. But then of course, I got completely sidetracked because Princess Beatrice happened.

And she was wearing this glorious masterpiece of a hat. I think I'm going to call it The Fallopian Hat. She stole the show completely. For me, at least. And her sister's hat wasn't too shabby either.

And dear oh dear I think I spent four hours trying to capture the essence of this ridiculous hat, which in society’s standards is probably considered Way Too Much Time. I don’t know. It was speaking to me. It was saying “draw me like one of your french girls.”

Look at my life. Look at my choices.

See you when I’ve made something that isn’t as pointless as this post.

But look it’s funny because: her hat.
