    If Deana wins or loses...I’m predicting she’ll definitely win, she will do it with grace and character cause even when shes getting negative remarks thrown her way she’s lifting and encouraging all the other contestants...check out her Instagram post!!!

    I am amazed at the creativity and the work that has gone into this competition!

    Peggy's narrative was well placed, at the top of the entries, because it helped me understand how the hats relate to the Derby event. And she's right, the more you look at her creation, the more you notice, the more you see.

    To all the contestants: A job well done. A job artistically done. I thank you.

    What an amazing finish to a great refashion competition. The hats are all so darn cute and show such creativity. I loved how each contestant pushed the envelope and delivered an abundance of visual loveliness, playfulness, and whimsical inspiration in their hats. Thankfully, I can spread out my votes because these hats are outstanding.

    I especially enjoyed seeing the white/green bowl used as block...I have that bowl (it came with our first dinnerware set 39 years ago).

    I enjoyed all the hats here.

    I was looking through trying to find something really different, something that took the idea of the derby hat to a whole new level. Something that blew my ideas of what a hat could be out of the water.

    The camo hat did that for me. I never thought camo could be remotely elegant. Now I see how a talented person can turn even camo into something I'd wear with pride.
