"A Pair of Eboshi" project added

Back in September, I made a pair of Japanese eboshi caps. Medieval Japanese of middle and upper classes rarely went about with their heads uncovered. In modern times, it's often inconvenient to wear a helmet or formal hat of some kind, so most people I know wear eboshi. These even make good "liners" for actual hats or helmets (not that I wear a kabuto).

I've needed these for a while to complete my outfits, so it's good to finally have them, although they make my ears stick out.
