You may have seen some pictures in the past few years of me wearing a Sad Kitty Ear hat prototype. Other than pointing out that my son Jack looks much better in it than i do you may also have wondered wondered if that was just a one-off like the Ruri-Neko Kitty suit or if it was something we might put in the store someday. Well, guess what - now you can get a Sad Kitty Ear hat of your own.
It was actually a lot more difficult than i thought it would be to finalize the design for this hat. Seraphim and I muddled over it for a long time, but finally we got it just about right. Made of a soft fleece the hats are one-size-fits-most. Also, this is not something we had manufactured somewhere far away and shipped to us in huge boxes or anything - Seraphim is making these, each one of them, herself. In fact, i even came have made little tags for her to sew into the hats (which look like this). She's been working on making them in small batches so when we put them in stock they go pretty quick. If they are out of stock, just keep checking the MegaGear store or follow Megatokyo on Facebook or on Twitter. So far, they have been selling out quicker than i can get a little rant together on it (not that that surprises anyone).
So, if there are days when a perky kitty ear hat just isn't the thing, the sad kitty ear hat is for you - go check em out. Made by Seraphim, with <3
