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.
