I’m very excited that SteamFest– a celebration of all things train- is coming up in Maitland on the 8/9th April! Apparently, Marie Antoinette used to gad about in a hat with a sailing ship on top of it (the design celebrated an American victory against the British during their war of independence). The My Year as a Fairy Tale costume designer, Kadisha Patterson, had the genius idea of doing a hat with a train on it, and we recruited the very talented train addict/artist David Hampton. David has designed the hat and it’s in the process of being constructed. Choo Choo!
