I finally got the pictures of my rigolette on my head.  It's made of brown wool/silk blend laceweight yarn and natural wool laceweight yarn with about 150 pom-poms on it.  The only deviation I know of that I made from the pattern is that I made the pom-poms on the back out of white alone instead of mixed colors since I ran out of brown yarn.

The pictures were taken by Greg Graham at the Liendo Plantation reenactment in November.  The pom-poms give it a really fun feel as you move your head around.  For those who are interested in such things, here's what the pom-poms looked like before I cut them apart.

I love the rigolette, but you in that color tops it off!

Oh, MY! I just love it. It's so, so, SO of its period, and so much fun! You look lovely to boot.
