A Red Hat Pirate Extravaganza and DIY Craft!

AHOY ME HEARTIES! Yesterday, September 19th, was Talk Like A Pirate Day, and Hatters around the world donned their best RHS-inspired pirate regalia and transformed into Pirate Wenches for the day. Queen Wench Scarlet Siren of the SoSimco Scarlet Sirens (Ontario, Canada) posted an invitation for local Hatters to attend a Pirate Luncheon on the Red Hat Society's Members-only message board, the Queens and Members Board, and what an event it was!

Her invitation read: 

"T' pirate captain and her gang look fore t' seein' all ye beauties again dis year dressed in all yore splendour and jewels .... gotta be in purple and red, just like t' little fishies in t' sea. Scarlet Siren and her band o' wenches hope t' see ya all thar t' celebrate. Ya never know ... thar may be swag."

In a Sisterhood that's all for playing dress-up, Talk Like A Pirate Day, is just another reason to dress in head-to-toe costumes and seize the day! Check out those great pictures, and read below for a great DIY Craft! 

Last week, we shared a DIY Pirate Eye Patch to help you get ready for "Talk Like A Pirate Day," but because some Hatters find occasions to wear their Pirate garb year-round, we wanted to share this easy way to create a Red and Pink Pirate Hat to look like a true RHS Pirate Wench. 

What You Need: 
A Pirate Hat (We got these from the local dollar store.)
Red, Pink or Purple Spray Paint 
A cardboard box

Simply place a cardboard box on floor or table and spray the bottom of the hat first and let it dry. Once it has dried, flip it over and spray the top. 

Once the hat has dried you have a completely blank RHS Pirate Hat canvas to bling to your heart's desire! Give it a try and send us your pictures to! We can't wait to see what you come up with!
Are You Ready To Dress Up? 
They say that dress-up starts at age five and never really ends. When was the last time you channeled your inner child and played dress-up just for the fun of it? If the answer dates so far back that you can barely remember, then we think it's time to have some fun. Sometimes the circumstances of everyday life can be a bit overwhelming, and we believe that it's important to a woman's overall health to take some time to escape, let loose and play with other like-minded women. Are you ready to have some fun? We're ready to have you! Click here to join The Red Hat Society today!
