Crazy hats at the Ascot races in the U.K.

This article on Fashionista by Tyler McCall, highlights some of the weird and wonderful hats worn by ladies at the Ascot Races.  This is a long tradition and one has to wonder if this is really the roots of the recent craze of CosPlay that it seems everyone is doing now.  The Ascot Races dates back to 1711 when it was founded by Queen Anne.  The reason for the “high-tea” atmosphere and the advent of the crazy, weird, beautiful hats is because of the influence of the royal family.  The racecourse is only about 6 miles away from Windsor Castle. Take a gander at some of these hats and perhaps inspiration for your next CosPlay costume at DragonCon and Comicon.
