Hey Sailor! Hats
Hello, hello!

What a time it has been and how time flies! I can't believe the holidays are already around the corner, so in the spirit of the holidays I've begun a very special Hey Sailor! Holiday Hat Sale in our Etsy Shop and on our website - absolutely ALL hats are 10% off, which includes made-to-order, in-stock and clearance items! I've also just added a TON of brand new, one of a kind designs to our Etsy shop with many lovely little fascinators under $75......

Hey Sailor! recently returned from an amazing time at the Dances of Vice 'Grand Shipwreck Ball' in New York! It was wonderful fantastic meeting up with old friends again and getting to know new ones! Here are a few fun photos of me with the doll-tastic Dame Darcy (who is wearing her blush pink Hey Sailor! 'Antoinette's Dream' ship hat) and the incomparable, drop dead gorgeous Shien Lee of Dances of Vice showing off her custom Hey Sailor! tricorn hat.

Hey Sailor! Hats
I can't believe it's been so long since I last updated my LJ! Time has been flying by these past few months, between being buried in hat projects, I got married on May 23rd and had a fabulous trip out to New York City where Hey Sailor! had a hat show at the always incredible Dances of Vice on May 16th. Talk about a whirlwind! And it's not slowing down either! I've barely had a chance to settle back in after getting more hats together for magazine shoots, the Northern California Pirate Festival....and on and on.....

Onto the hats! I just added a handful of brand new, one-of-a-kind hats to the Hey Sailor! Etsy storefront, we also happen to be having a HUGE summer sale! All hats are on sale for 10-50% regular price, so get 'em while you can!

I wanted to share some new hat designs with everyone! I've been working like mad for the past couple of months getting pieces made up for some very exciting magazine shoots that were just done. The pink silk 'Rebecca' classic tilt hat and red silk 'Ruby' topper hat are one-of-a-kind pieces and the emerald silk 'Vamp' topper and 'Napoleon' bicorne hat are limited edition designs.

The 'Napoleon' bicorne hat is one that I've been wanting to create for a while and I am probably most excited about...I'm planning to make an early 19th century dandy ensemble to go with it so I can wear it for Ragwater performances, I've got the patterns, the piles of fabric, now I just need to find the time!

A wonderful time was had by all on our whirlwind trip to New York City to perform at Dances of Vice Valentines Voodoo Rhythms. It was fantastic to finally be able to meet the incredibly lovely rattengift and lulu! Shien, Lucas and Sarah were so sweet and hospitable, we are forever indebted to them for letting us stay at their apartment.

The show went even better than I could have imagined, the atmosphere was electric, the people so gracious....Shien has an amazing thing going with Dances of Vice, everyone who is a part of DOV seems to glow with this incredible excitement that can easily engulf and inspire you. It is truly something very very special. We need such a thing out here in the SF Bay Area! I am keeping my fingers crossed that DOV will make its way out to the west coast so everyone can see the fabulousness they are missing out on. Something like this does not come along very often....

This trip only whet my appetite for NYC, I am already counting on heading back out as soon as it is financially possible (perhaps for my birthday?!?) so that Kris and I can once again partake in another killer Dances of Vice event. Yes, it's like drugs, once you taste it you must go back for more!

Without further ado, here are some photos from our performance that night taken by the lovely Miss Fae...I'll post a video from the show soon as well!
