Sometimes a Buffalo hat doesn't quite work in its original incarnation and Buffalo comes back to it and tweaks it until it does work. That's what happened to the Mermaid Party Hat. It just didn't sit right with the flopped over tail, which made it look like a sad Orca with a floppy dorsal fin at SeaWorld. So Buffalo added some wire armature and now it is much more festive. See the before and after shots below. The new, erect Mermaid Tail Party Hat is available on Etsy.
Remember the Pizza & Beer Hat? It was a hit, and sold quickly. But Buffalo never makes the exact same hat twice so she started thinking about other alcohol options. Thus was born a whole new product line: the cocktail hat series. This is the first in the series: the Margarita Hat. On sale now in the Etsy store.
I never posted the photos from the "Over the Moon" show - the Diane Gage poetry reading and art show from a few weeks back that was a book art project of San Diego Book Arts. You can still see the exhibit. It's on display at the Mission Valley branch library until September 29, 2016. The photo on the left is Buffalo in front of her art piece, "New Moon in Old Moon's Arms". The photo on the right is the bound book that Buffalo created with all the artists' work in it.
