A Knockout Accessory

When I see the comic book onomatopoeias 'POW' 'BAM' 'THUD' what first comes to mind are the fight scenes in the 1960's TV series Batman (the one where Batman looks like he's had too much beer). These words were used first in comic books to capture the excitement & add an extra layer to an otherwise silent comic book.

And they've clearly been the inspiration for Janine Basil's Comic Sound FX Headbands that I found on Etsy. These machine embroidered headbands are made from polyester felt and are a fun accessory that can bring color to any outfit. And they're a great conversation starter.

The pink one's on my must-have list (perfect with my new Puma shoes).
