Top your noggin with a wilder-style yarmulke #Fashion#groom gear#hat#jewish#LGBTQ#superficial snack#superhero October 9 2012 | Catherine Clark bijouxandbits Jessica and Jason. Photo by Jonathan Keller Yarmulkes (or kippahs) are caps worn on the head, typically by those of Jewish faith. We have seen these many times in our real weddings, but I wanted to share a few interesting yarmulkes I found while digging around the internet. For those able to wear something a little more daring, I present these alternative (and sometimes out there) yarmulkes for your offbeat Jewish wedding. Channel your Gotham-saving nostalgia with this retro-style Batman yarmulke. For Google devotees, this Chrome version is totally tech-friendly (and probably virus-free). A rainbow yarmulke would be pretty awesome for a Jewish/LGBT wedding. It also comes in black. Everyone will know you've got Pokémon on the brain when a Poké Ball is keeping it stored up. This swirl style will either hypnotize your guests or make them think of candy. Either way is a win in my book.

These colorful yarmulkes are hand-crafted by Mayan women, and sales go to support villages in Guatemala where they live. Noah wears a similar super colorful style.

How are they supposed to stay on your head? I see Noah there is wearing a little hair clip… Reply You usually use bobby pins or barrettes (the kind Noah is wearing above is the most common). Some actually have a little velcro or hair comb on the inside that helps if the wearer has the right type of hair. Men who are growing balder by the day often start to wear bigger kippot (plural of kippah) to keep them on with nothing to clip them to. Reply Plural of Kippah = KIPPOT! This is awesome. Reply Also, some types are larger and more hat-like, such as this one. They stay on pretty well, because they fit over the whole top of your head and come down about 2". Reply Super cute 🙂 I've made my Fiancee a 2-sided Kippah, one side had cats, and the other side was more formal with a shiny blue. They are super easy to make, I'm hoping to make another one for her for our wedding 🙂 Reply Please send us a DIY guestpost about this – I want to learn how to make these! Reply These are pretty tame to all the ones I saw in all the shops in Israel. There were many variates to suit anyone and everyone so much so that I never stopped to take pictures because it was a normal thing. Guess the Holy Land is a little more offbeat than people give them credit for (and no, it was not just in Tel Aviv, they are even in the very strict communities in Jerusalem). Reply Love these! My guy's favorite is his Army-issue ACU/camo print. Reply You forgot the most obvious alternative of all, PROPELLOR BEANIES. Oh yeah. We're having 'em. Also, this barely (barely!) scratches the surface of funky kippot. Do a google image search for bukharan kippot, and check out the colorful embroidered awesomeness available. (And for anyone looking for larger kippot but don't want the square format that you see in the Bukharan versions, Jews from assorted African traditions typically wear larger ones that conform to the shape of one's head.) Edit: Here's a wiki on the Bukharan Jews, if anyone's interested in this tiny central Asian culture who make some bitchin' yarmulkes: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bukharan_Jews Reply For my wedding a friend of mine made a kippah out of wire and beads, I am going to attach my birdcage veil to the kippah for my head-wear. She makes them out of all types of beads and different wires, you can check them out here: http://www.byadokippot.com Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
