Vintage Bird Hats

Now, regardless of my personal opinion on the matter, I know that animal parts have been used in human fashion since our species first figured out how to manage it. But these designs are hardly functional.
In fact, some of them resemble the aftermath of massive bird tragedy. Perhaps a plague, or at the very least some unfortunate bone crushing accidents.
I searched out a few more.
I suppose this sort of thing enjoyed a brief stint of popularity in the middle of the 20th century, even if it made the fashion savvy woman look like a perch.
More catastrophes here.
