And how do we get them?


(2011 Edition)


  • The Abby: Participate in closing a post.
    A red bowtie

  • Shiver Me Timbers: Beat the current accepted answer of 3 upvotes or more by 2x as many votes.
    A pirate hat

  • Bushido: Earn the necromancer badge.
    A Japanese Bushido mask

  • Epic Punyon Beard: It is the dawning of the age of Aquarius./It was hairy. (wut? Relevant Meta.SO post's here. I think a mod has to manually give this one, and it seems to only be given out on Meta.SO. They say that it's earnable and at least one non-mod has it (dmck), but that doesn't mean that it's possible to earn it without them manually awarding it.)
    Long brown hair and a brown beard
Users who have unlocked secret hats should link images of them. – Wipqozn Dec 19 '12 at 17:18
@Wipqozn Kind of way ahead of you. – badp Dec 19 '12 at 17:19
Crap, the images kind of have huge margins. Feel free to crop them – Ben Brocka Dec 19 '12 at 17:22
Here's a set of images which appear to have some secret hats but they may or may not be real, and they're not all of the secret hats (note the currently above hats dont' appear on that sprite) – Ben Brocka Dec 19 '12 at 17:40
I have all four of these now, what other hidden hats are there? – user27134 Dec 19 '12 at 21:39
@BenBrocka I don't think that picture you linked contains actual secret hats. None of the secret hats that have been found appear in it, and all of the images that are in it and are not known hats would be stupid as hats. – murgatroid99 Dec 19 '12 at 23:17
@murgatroid99 I agree since none of them have come up yet; it may just be another Easter egg – Ben Brocka Dec 20 '12 at 0:56
Someone not lazy edit this in… – Ben Brocka Dec 20 '12 at 3:55
Someone else not lazy: – Ben Brocka Dec 20 '12 at 14:00
I already got Necro, does this mean I have to get another Necro to get the hat? – Retrosaur Dec 21 '12 at 17:52
@Retrosaur yes you have to get it while the event is on – Ben Brocka Dec 21 '12 at 17:56
