Hat Orders for WWWC4

Thursday, December 4th, 2014

Greetings!

I’m getting together a hat order so I can have pre-orered Vented Hats ready for delivery at WWWC in Tucson, AZ in March 2015. If you wish to order one from me, I will need to know the following information by the end of December:

What style of hat (standard top, flared top, short top, derby, or another one I haven’t had in stock yet)?

What color of hat (black, grey, or brown are the usual colors if given a choice at ll by the manufacturer)?

What material of hat (leather or felt)?

What size of hat?

What style of gaskets (if you have a custom design in mind, I can try to accommodate it, my skill level will decide)?

What color of gaskets?

Link to my gasket designs: The first 16 are for the top of the hats, the rest are for the sides.

How many side gaskets? (I can make 1-6 depending on the cut, design, and size of the gasket. Ex: 6 small round gaskets look great on a derby.)

I will need a $50 down payment before I order the hat. Email me for my PayPal address. The rest will be due upon delivery at WWWC, or upon completion if I need to ship it to you. Final bill to include shipping.

Vented Hats in Another Music Video

Monday, June 23rd, 2014

Greetings!

The music video for Caravan by the JHB – Jeff Hunt Band, has been released. This is the one hubby and I are both in, along with a boat load of our friends (old and new). I hope you enjoy it as much as we did helping make it. Look for two vented hats, one on my head, the other on hubby’s. For those of you who don’t know, Caravan is the title track to the web series Mantecoza, which we are told, should be out by the end of the year (hopefully).

My Vented Hats have made their international debut in the new Professor Elemental video by Moog, at just after the one minute mark. Hubby is the man wearing it, he’s the handsome fellow in the rose colored glasses.

WWWC3

Thursday, February 27th, 2014

Greetings,

Wild Wild West Con 3 is in a week and a half. It is the only SteamPunk specific convention in the state of Arizona. It is held at Old Tucson Studios. My team and I will be out at the Vendor Barn with plenty of Vented Hats. Come on out and say “Hi” and enjoy the day.

This is a really fun event. There are plenty of panels and classes to take. There is a SteamPunk Fashion Show. Some very talented artists in the Vendor Barn, and plenty of SteamPunks to ask about their costumes and how they made all of their accessories. It is going to be a weekend of creativity!

Studio Time

Wednesday, February 12th, 2014

Greetings,

Well, I just couldn’t stand it any more. I went downstairs into my studio yesterday and today to work on a hat. For those who don’t know, i have a small tear in one of my little ligaments in an ankle. I can go up and down stairs sideways to not put any strain on it. The problem with that is my opposite knee is my bad knee, so I’m trying to not make it angry as well. Yesterday, I just couldn’t stand it anymore! I had an idea for a hat and just had to work on it. The epoxy is now drying overnight, and I will get good photos of it tomorrow. I feel so much better being able to conquer the stairs (slowly) and create.

I will post the pictures of it tomorrow.

Enjoy!

Potential Opportunity

Thursday, January 30th, 2014

Greetings,

I went over to the gallery and picked up several pieces. Then I went over to the gift shop and picked up 2 hats. I have sold 3 pendants and 1 hat! Yea! I should get the payment notification next month. When I got home, I emailed them back and thanked them and said I would be interested in having some more of my pendants there if they’re interested. We’ll see what happens.

Enjoy!
