I look good in hats....yet I can't think of many anime/manga characters that wear them! The only one I can think of is Azmaria from Chrno Crusaude...plus, she's too cutesy for me.

Suggestions? Anyone?

Yolei, mimi, Sora (Digimon)
Misato(Eva) It a beret but it counts.

blanking on rest.

how about dark magician girl from yu gi oh

10-17-2005, 01:14 PM
What about Maetel from Galaxy Express 999? Or a member of the military from Full Metal Alchemist? Are you averse to crossplaying? If not, what about Vampire hunter D?

Wave users from .hack// wear hats ^_^
and all main characters from Magic users club.
oh! and Sai from Hikaru No Go wears an imperial noble's hat.
And the president from Kujibuki Unbalance (a manga they read in Genshiken) wears a hat and goggles.

Then there are some good ole Miyazaki titles... Laputa castle in the sky and Princess mononoke have an assortment of hats.

Yay hats!

Risky from Risky Safety wears a hat. Chocolate from Sorceror Hunters wears one too. ^^

Izumi/Zoe - Digimon Frontier
Nico Robin/Miss All Sunday - One Piece
Karin - Bleach
Kirara - Samurai 7 (not sure if I'd call the normal thing she wears on her head a hat, but she does wear an actual hat in some of the first episodes)
Honoka - Samurai 7
Natarle Badgiruel - Gundam Seed
Murrue Ramius - Gundam Seed
Talia Gladys - Gundam Seed Destiny
Meyrin Hawke - Gundam Seed Destiny
Marimeia Khushrenada - Gundam Wing: Endless Waltz

Some may be young, but they don't have the "cutesy" feel that Azmaria does. And I stuck with all females since you didn't specify if crossplay was an option. Military uniforms usually have some form of a hat, so anime with that element in it may be a good place to look for more ideas.

Seigaku Tennis Team - The Prince of Tennis
Misato Katsuragi - Evangelion
Monkey D. Luffy - One Piece
Udo Jineh - Rurouni Kenshin

Wow, this makes me realize how few of characters there are with hats out there. For Prince of Tennis, their uniforms have a hat, and the uniforms are really nice. For Misato, she's got her hat with her NERV uniform, and Luffy has his straw hat. If you know any mecha or military themed anime, I'm sure you could find hats there too because the uniforms usually have them. Oh, for Jineh… he has the Asian style straw hat. Samurai anime have those quite often as well.

Yuuko has a hat for the fifth volume cover.

10-17-2005, 11:43 PM
And the president from Kujibuki Unbalance (a manga they read in Genshiken) wears a hat and goggles.

Gah! Nitpick... Thats Izumi that wears the hat and goggles. She isn't any president. I think you're thinking of the Chairman, Ritsuko. She wears a German war helmet.

Anyway, all the characters from DiGi Charat have hats. That's pretty cutesy though...

You could try Police a/or Military Uniforms.

Yuuko has a hat for the fifth volume cover.

Isabella from Paradise Kiss, George does too sometimes. Rosiel from Angel Sanctuary often is seen wearing a cop's hat. Cardcatpor Sakura usually wears cute little hats as does Li. I think that girl from No need for tenchi wears this Space Policeman hat...i forget what her name is. Meroshi or something? At that moment, that's all I remember XD

You could always be one of the shrews from Victorian Romance Emma... (see attached)

And actually, if you did that, Butterick has a really cool hat pattern for the 19th century era...

Howl's Moving Castle is CHOCK FULL of hats. Sophie is a milliner, and always wears a hat. Her stepmother (either Honey or Fanny, depending on where you look for info) has the craziest hats ever. The Witch of the Waste has a big fur hat. The Prince has a hat. Howl has a hat in his disguise uniform. The blob monsters all wear hats. All the various soldiers have hats. It's positively hat-tastic!

Gankutsuou also has a few characters who wear hats at some point, notably The Count, Beppo, and Albert.

Boogiepop from Boogiepop Phantom wears a hat.
So does Kuon (Quon) Kisaragi from RahXephon.

EDIT: Here are some artbook scans from CCS with some hats (although the second is more of a decorative headband than a hat):
Also, how could I possibly forget the Queen of Hats, Mama from Kodocha?? But apparently I did, so I'm adding her in now that I remembered her. ;)

Does't the chick in Trigun wear a hat... a cowboy one? Dominique the cyclops?

And speaking of cowboy hats, Judy (a la Punch and Judy) from Cowboy Bebop wears a cowboy hat, too.

There's a hat for the Fullmetal Alchemist uniforms (RIza wears a helmet in the movie).

Not really a hat, but I often see characters from Twelve Kingdoms with a big square hat thing that has dangling bits... Couldn't find a proper pic quickly, but here's someone on cosplaylab with a 12 kingdoms costume with a hat...

There's a character in some Clamp anime that has an awsome hat. Altough I don't know which clamp work it was. It had floating cars in it, that's about all I remember. But if anyone else knows what i'm talking about please tell me what it is, becuase I wanna cosplay that character.

Also Kyon wears a hat in episode 11 of Haruhi.
