Court dress in Germany Weihnachtsmann?

Looking at the reaction to the court dress story in The Volokh Conspiracy, I remembered the court dress I find most ridiculous of all – that of the Federal Constitutional Court in Germany. It looks to me as if it was designed in the 1960s – I haven’t checked; the headgear somehow reminds me of the spaceship in 2001.
Eugene Volokh then showed the picture (I had hesitated to show a picture from Der Spiegel), and he has another of the Supreme Court of Canada, added to the same entry.
