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.
Buffalo is back from her private catering gig and the stores are back open - or will be open once I get her to provide the password information to reactivate Stripe processing here in the buffalohats.com store. But the Etsy store is open now.
UPDATE: the buffalohats.com store is now open for business.
Good News/Bad News: Buffalo sold a lot of stuff while she was away, including the Pizza & Beer Hat, the Supreme Queen of the Fruitflies Hat, both Shepherdess Hats (cat and fox), the Cartwright Hat and three out of five party hats. Plus my favorite of the fabric masks: the Monster Mask. And another favorite hat of mine, the purple riding hat with veil. Those are all gone forever so if you were thinking of buying any of them, too late!
But I am sure there are many wonderful new hats just around the corner once Buffalo has had a few days of rest and relaxation. I will keep you posted.
