... and the green-cover hat has less distinct whipped cream, too. The first one has better-defined frothy toppings.

I kind of love it, though. I have a thing about hats, and wide-brimmed hats are the most fun. :)

[quote=""Nefret""]That is one epic hat. It kinda looks like somebody sprayed whip cream on the top.[/quote]

Is it me or does the orange title blend into the background too much and the white title not as easy to read as it could be because of frilly stuff?

Yep you're right EC, the orange does fade a bit, and as for all that white flowery stuff - slight overkill! That's if you're not totally distracted by that hat....

Also reminds me of a big Catholic christening I attended when my sons were teens. Eldest DS leaned toward me as the baby made its entry festooned in lacy white robes. 'Another child succumbs to the attack of the killer doiley,' he whispered. How I managed not to burst out laughing I'll never know!

We need to find the meringue milliner.

Or ... at least, I do! ;)

I like the ship cover better. But why is the pendant floating in the sky?

If they wanted to show it in a large size to get the details, at least if it's floating in the sky it looks better than that gigantic photoshopped pendant the woman was wearing on that other cover (I think that book was called The Pendant).

Her make-up is way too heavy in both shots though.
