“Always keep your bowler on in times of stress and watch out for diabolical masterminds.” This is a quote I have on the front of my SL profile. It was said by the character Emma Peel to John Steed, as parting advice just before she left the 60s TV show, The Avengers.
The bowler hat has become an item of fashion, so quintessentially associated with us Brits. To me it goes hand in hand, or on-head-in-hand the umbrella. I don’t mean the clever, small ones which collapse in on themselves to fit into even the tiniest handbag. I refer to the long, walking-stick-sized item with a point at the end.
I am often to be found in SL wearing a bowler…. which perhaps says a lot about the presence of stress and diabolical masterminds… haha. I am also very fond of umbrellas, proper ones. After all… they are most useful when it rains…. or the shit starts flying, but you can also whack someone with them, if needed! *grins*
