EXTREMELY OFFICIAL BATEN KAITOS HAT POLL
Hiya! The International Baten Kaitos Day of Haberdashery got me wondering: a couple years go, we tried to sort out who the favorite characters of the English-speaking Baten Kaitos fandom were. But we didn’t settle the really important question: who has the best hat?
…OK, yes, yes. But who has the second and third best hats in all of Baten Kaitos?
Reblog with your first, second, and third choices for best Baten Kaitos hat by November 24, 11:59 p.m. Eastern time (currently GMT+5). That’s short notice, but democracy waits for no one. The winners will be announced on November 25, the last day of Our Glorious Spiriter Week 2017. Trophies will be delivered in the back by Verus in a position that minimally compromises lung function.
- Headbands (adult Gibari) don’t count. Ridiculously high collars (adult Ladekahn) don’t count. Crowns (young Ladekahn) and headdresses (Corellia) are OK. Helmets are kind of pushing it, but I suppose you could include adult Giacomo and Ayme’s headgear in your vote if you wanted. For the Children of the Earth, please remember that their hats should be considered separate from their extremely distracting masks.
Stuff that encases the entire head (Guillo’s hood, Kamroh’s…enormous wood pumpkin) does not really count as a hat for the purposes of this poll.
- And, hey - don’t forget about shopkeepers while voting! That dude in Mintaka didn’t wire up his hats for nothing! (Also, if you’re voting for a character who appeared in both games, please specify which version’s getting your vote.) Just to make it clear, you’re not restricted to the illustrious representatives in the photo selection above - any hat-wearing individuals in the franchise are fair game.
OK, good luck! Exercise your right to vote in a civilized and peaceful manner, just like our friends in Alfard!
Candidates and voters are requested to refrain from wing-ripping. Until the last couple days of voting, of course.
