185 Fancy Hat Gothic

These penguins guide the beginner through Gothic in my basic book Learn Calligraphy.  Long ago I began to see the resemblance between Gothic letters and groups of stiff, black-coated penguins.  Now I can't un-see it.  

To make Fancy Hat Gothic, all you have to do is elaborate the endings of the ascenders.  Add similar swashes to the descenders to give the letters lace petticoats.
