HATS OFF

Whenever I have a bit of time on my hand, or whenever I'm a bit bored, besides reading all these blogs, I tend to visit the website FFFFOUND. It's a website that collects fun pictures from all over the internet. The pictures are about architecture, graphic design, fashion, photography and much much more. Well today I was browsing through the pictures and I came across this one:

picture from Flickr

I immediately loved the picture, but the hat reminded me of something I had seen before:
Photobucket
Very sorry, but I don't remember where I got the picture from!

Isn't that hat great ^-^? It's the drummer of the band Sigur Ros wearing it. I saw Sigur Ros on a summer festival this year and I have to say, the concert was amazing. Sigur Ros makes this dreamy music (listen to it if you're feeling stressy and need to calm down!!) and they were playing just when the sun was setting. And on top of that, they had decorated the stage with enormous white lampions, just breathtaking! Of all the artists I saw in those few days, this hat must be my favourite stage costume ( Well, that and the 12 (or something like that)outfits Roisin Murphy wore in her one and a half hour during set!)
So tell me, which crazy stage outfits have you seen before ^-^?

EDIT: I now remember the website I got the last picture from, it is in fact the Sigur Ros website, because this summer the hat went missing, but luckily it has been retrieved!

Bonus picture:
Photobucket
I got it from the same Flickr page as the first picture

Wow that website is really cool, I'd never heard of it before, so I'm glad you've now introduced me to it! That first picture is beautiful, and that hat is indeed killer! :D

I haven't heard Sigur Ros music before, I will have to check it out! :)

Late comment, but I'm not sure if you know, but the man on the horse and the other guy in the strange suit are wearing the traditional costumes of the Samis, a people that live way north across Scandinavia! Sigur Ros are Islandic, so not sure about this guy's hat though. Anyways, thanks for a great blog!!!

thanks for the explanation! =)
Yes I think the Sigur Ros guy's hat is probably just a stage costume, not some traditional costume... Thanks!
