how does her hat not fall off?

This one challenges his good friend, the reader.

Cosplay as one (or both?) the following, and figure out how to keep the hat on, without resorting to duct tape or glue:

Because ma’habocath keeps looking at these pictures for another reason beyond the interesting outfits adorning the beautiful Mari and Yoshiko Yohane: the hat bugs the crap out of this one because ma’hab cannot wrap his mind how it would be worn IRL…

Many outfits from otaku media look less than functional, for example this one from the Final Fantasy series:

That “collar” around the lower-half of Auron’s head looks highly bothersome, especially when he needs a swig of saki or to cut something with that unwieldy-looking butterknife.

Not to imply that dork-lording across the pond is any less ridiculous:

That is a stupid hat, no matter who wears it. But at least it looks like it can stay on without duct tape; now if only those doofus horns were not the cause of much neck and shoulder ache. No wonder the trickster god is less than pleasant in any of his incarnations.

ma'habocath knows some, tells much. ma'habocath knows few things others do. This one is a live-alone, full-time burger-flipper with an odd mind and too much to say. ma'hab always tries the best ma'hab can to keep up: • Chores • Bodybuilding and other health-nuttery • Japanese language studies • Culinary experimentation (see “other health-nuttery”) • Exploration of newfound spiritual territory • Exploration of my Self • Figuring out how to socialize well enough, mostly face-to-face • Backlogs: books, heavy metal, anime • Blogging, chatting, texting, and talking to whomever will listen about all of the above
