Steve Ricks Seven Hat HankyHaving finished the first round of McCoy Bat Bandanas, I gathered some reviews and comments from my buyers, which you can read in the Customer Review entry.
Most were short comments and thanks, but by Nathan King stood out, being a more full review of the whole experience of buying the Hanky.
Here it is reproduced in full.
I recently ordered Steve Ricks’ Seven Hat Hanky, after reading his INTEREST THREAD on the forums.
Steve Ricks has a fantastic attention for detail.
Inside carefully folded in tissue paper was the Seven hat hanky – I tore through this tissue paper like a kid tears through his present wrappings on Christmas.
The material is light but strong. The pattern is expertly pieced together. It is a single side print handkerchief, but it works great for the costume. I compared the Bandanna to images of Sylvester McCoy on the BBC classic Doctor Who website and after experimenting with folding the Bandanna, discovered it matched with the original prop / hanky.
Attached to the hanky is a manufacturers label with the seal of Rassilon and washing instructions. I am quite pleased with my purchase. I am convinced that all well to do Time Lords make arrangements with Steve Ricks for their adventure apparel.
here are some preliminary photos:

Check this out – it really makes the costume!!
Compare with the link of my previous costume at the top!
Yes I look like a goof but it is clear that I'm having a good time. I may not have the right coat but it really completes the illusion! (Master beard not withstanding.)

This really is well made and a necessary addition to your Seventh Doctor Costume!!!
With thanks to Nathan for the fantastic review, and permission to reproduce it here with the pictures he took.
