Black Hat Banshees -- Black Hat Divas

 
*Official trademark of the Black Hat Banshees AND Black Hat Divas




We're so much more than "that little black dress".  We are young, we are middle aged, we are more mature, or NOT.  Whatever we are and whatever we are doing, we're looking absolutely fabulous doing it!

The Black Hat Banshees actually started on a whim, and sort of "tongue in cheek". The name Banshee is in honor of a mother who used to tell her kids that they "sounded like wild banshees" when they were noisy. During a discussion on our private Ladies of the Hat community website, many ladies expressed sadness and concern about the changing times of their organization. Other ladies did not belong to any organization at all. We decided we should have a Black Hat Day. After four successful simultaneous Banshee Bashes in four different states on April 4, 2009, the Black Hat Banshees became a separate entity all to itself. Those BHB Bashes started Black Hat Banshee sororities. In addition, because so many ladies are total Divas, our group has added the Black Hat Divas organizational name to coincide with Banshees.  
In either case, please do not refer to either group as red hatters wearing black.  Another hatting organization and LOTH came to a mutual agreement over five years ago that the two shall not mix.  I'm doing my part....are you?

Banshee or Diva.....Party on girlfriends!



Black Hat Banshee/Black Hat Divas Sorority gatherings are happening all over!  As of June, 2014 there have been hundreds of Black Hat Banshee affairs.  From the East Coast of the USA to the far shores of the West Coast of the USA, down South and up North in Canada, the Banshees RULE.  We have sororities in New Zealand, Australia and the United Kingdom.  We are not about dreary, super-natural, or grim.  We are about dressing up and playing.  How many times have you worn that "little black dress"?  We just take that one step further.
