Cinco de Mayo is less than two weeks away. Anybody need a sombrero? Or perhaps the limited edition Margarita cocktail hat.
Giuseppe Arcimboldo (1527-1593) was an Italian painter who created portraits of people out of fruit, vegetables, flowers, fish, and other objects - animate and inanimate. Here's an example of his work:

Arcimboldo's work inspired Buffalo to create a modern update on the theme. Behold, the Junk Food Mask:
Buffalo's Egyptian headdresses have been popular in the Etsy store so she made some more. Click on the images to go to the store listings.
We finally have some of Buffalo's wonderful themed shirts available for sale on Etsy.

Buffalo has been working on some new raffia hats, raffia masks, and costume hats -- all appropriate for Halloween. I have uploaded four of them to the Etsy store. Click on the images below to go directly to the store listing and check back over the next couple of weeks. There is more Halloween gear to come.
Buffalo has been a busy bee since returning from camp. She's made several new hats and an adorable raffia mask. The non-sombrero hat style below is what Buffalo used to call the 'Lady Di Hat'.

Cinco de Mayo is coming up pretty soon, which celebrates the Mexican army's victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla. Or as we know it in the US, an opportunity to drink margaritas and listen to mariachi bands. It's the perfect day to wear one of Buffalo's raffia sombreros... or her one-of-a-kind margarita hat.
