WHY HALLO THAR COLD!
I think I'll enjoy it, but living down here this long spoils you clothing-wise. You can pretty much wear whatever the hell you want year around. This means I don't have a whole lot of cold weather gear.
When I was looking at warm hats that would cover my ears, I had more options than I thought. I have this white thing with black snowflakes on it that mom bought me years ago that I haven't had occasion to wear yet. It's cute. I don't know if it's my style, but it's cute. I have the infamous deviruchi hat, as seen at pretty much every con I go to. It's a lot bigger than you'd think, and I can roll the brim down to cover my ears.
I also have the NIS PRINNY HELMET
I think this is superior because it has a big padded helmet section, retaining optimum body heat. It also has two flippers and an under-chin strap. This seems to be the obvious choice for keeping the ol brain pan thawed out. It's also AMAZINGLY, AMAZINGLY, amazingly stylish. I can't help but think this would also be the best choice to visit family in (most of whom I haven't seen in a long time)
My common sense is really getting in the way of the ovbivously superior headgear choice, though, and I'll probably end up wearing the devi hat in shame. I tried to get Ray to wear the prinny helmet, but he won't. I told him he could wear the other prinny cap I have and I'd wear the prinny helmet and we'd match and we'd never lose each other at the airport. He also said no.
Just think of how many people I could embarass merely by association if I was wearing this?!?!
