Buffalo says this is the last in the kaiju series, but I'm campaigning for a Gamera hat. She doesn't want to do it because she's never seen a Gamera movie. Time to crack open that sweet MST3K Gamera deluxe tin. Anyhoo, behold the majesty that is Mothra (singing tiny twins not included).
Remember the kaiju hat Buffalo finished a couple of months ago, Godzilla and King Ghidorah fighting on Mount Fuji? If not, scroll down to the previous blog post. Godzilla and Ghidorah account for one part of the MonsterVerse but we cannot forget the King. I am speaking of Kong, of course.
Lest you think King Kong and Godzilla belong in different universes, Legendary Entertainment and Warner Bros. are in the midst of a shared universe franchise that includes both of them [films: Godzilla (2014), Kong: Skull Island (2017), Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019), and the upcoming Godzilla vs. Kong (2021)].
Buffalo's Kong is old school. Instead of fighting a Japanese kaiju, he takes out his aggression on the Empire State Building.
It has been ages since I blogged, but to be fair it's been a while since Buffalo made anything new. Now that she's been furloughed from her day job she's producing again. She has launched a new kaiju series of hats. It is still very much a work in progress, but I thought I'd share her work so far.
First up, the guy we all know and love, Godzilla (or Gojira, if you prefer).
After crocheting Godzilla, Buffalo went to work on King Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster.
I love his wings.
But what can these two behemoths fight over? My laptop?
Nah. Mount Fuji!
Yes, that is a hat. Her original plan was to attach the kaiju securely to the hat, but they are so much fun to play with that now she's thinking of making them removable. What do you think?
Stay tuned for more.

Easter is almost upon us. Whether you want a big floppy hat or something small and smart, Buffalo has you covered. I am particularly fond of the shepherdess hat with cheetah ears. So cute! Men's hats too.
Time for the annual Halloween sales pitch. Is there anyone who makes more Halloween-worthy goods than Buffalo? She makes masks, pirate coats, silly hats, and themed Aloha shirts, among other things. Here's is a sample of her current stock (more on Etsy). If you want a special order, better contact Buffalo now. She has limited time available to accommodate special orders.
Mardi Gras is February 13 - less than a month away. Buffalo has tons of merchandise that would be perfect for Mardi Gras celebrations: silly felt hats, needlelace masks, silly raffia hats, awesome raffia masks. Some favorites are pictured below.

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'. But so many guys like it, we've renamed it the 'Lord Dan/Lady Di Hat'. Click on the photos below to open a link to the Etsy store listing.
