Some of you might have seen V's new hat at Crown. Here's a link you'll have to crete a login if you don't have one already. It was based on a hat from depictions of Vlad Tepes (1431-1476) but those depictions are late 16th century, which is why I made it. I'm interested in the ones in the top row. I'm trying to figure out what to use for the white thing that sticks up behind the series of five pearls. It looks like horsehair or bristle to me but I'm open to other interpretations and all ideas.
