      No with head scarves, but I occasionally wear a turban
      (either in ME garb or going more Byzantine than usual
      :D ). I wore a turban to an "Arabian Nights" themed
      costume party, and had some drunken nut assure me that
      he held 'nothing against my people'. And the
      attendant at the parking garage, who WAS
      middle-eastern, asked if I was arabic, and praised my
      outfit. Oddly enough, at SCA events! I occassionally
      get a funny look for the turban, but I think that's
      because we have few authentic ME personas around, and
      more 'bellydancer/AmericanTribaldancer' types. And
      the few byzantine types either go bare-headed w/
      masses of braids (ultra Greek), or wear these funny
      stuffed headrolls.....
      Personally, I won't go bareheaded at an event unless
      I'm cross-dressed in male garb (which I also do
      occasionally), so I'm always swathed in scarf, veil,
      turban, povoynik & ubrus, whatever.... :D
