I honestly think I may be a bit premature in thinking about this, but it is something I do want to have a good idea on. So here is my issue. I have been working on character development lately. What I have figured out (sorta) is this: artist/nerd-geek/elegant with a focus on more "visual" type magic (contact juggling, the hawk, anything with fire, etc).

So I have been trying to figure out if the fedora I have worn for years now needs to be retired. I honestly think what would fit my character better is no hat at all, but this is not possible. For health reasons, I need to protect my head from the sun, SO . . .

Do you think perhaps the fedora could fit?

Thigns people thought of when they think fedora:
Casablanca
Prohibition
w/ feather, pimp (I don't use a feather)
film-noir
classy

I know my character is going to develope and change more over time, so this may not apply in the future. But for now I wanted to address my thoughts on it.

Can you wear a wig? Costume stores have some real looking wigs that would protect your head from the sun

This is definitely an option I should consider, but not one I'd prefer. I already have awesome hair. It's blonde, long, and curls. I think if I were to use a wig, I'd have to cut my hair short.

For long hair, I suggest trying on the fedora, and top hat, see which looks better with your hair. You might also experiment with tying your hair back.

ArchAngel_G, stupid question, but we have all been making an assumption. Are you male or female? Makes a difference in the advice.

I am male. The alias is a hint to my actual name, Gabriel.

Thank you all so much for some simple, yet helpful advise.
