Sad Kitty Ear Hats! (ping ping wig not included)

"Sad Kitty Ear Hats!"

Wednesday - September 28, 2011

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

Fred will be a guest of honor at Youmacon Anime Convention November 3-6 in Detroit, Michigan. After I posted this event information to the Megatokyo Facebook page we were very amused to have someone comment, "YIKES!!!DETROIT???". Well, what can I say. We live here. LOLZ. Home Sw33t Home, ya know. We frequently attend downtown events and go to Belle Isle Park and we support the restoration and renovation of the historic Belle Isle Aquarium which was tragically closed during the corrupt (and embarrassing) administration of the former mayor.

We don't believe Detroit is worse than any other city we have attended an anime convention. Anyone remember Otakon 2001 in Baltimore, Maryland? Fred called me at home and went off about underground fires, exploding manholes, flooded sewers and streets flowing with rats. It was too unbelievable. I told him to call me back when he wasn't drunk and hung up on him. It wasn't until I watched the news later that I realized he wasn't drunk and was telling the truth. Every convention is a unique experience from the guests to the weather and you never know what will happen,

We'll be having a giveaway for Megatokyo character cosplayers who show up at the main panel and there will be a photo op afterward. Thomas Knapp, co-author of the Endgames: Behind the Masque short story will also be on hand. As always, you'll be able to come and see us in the dealer room throughout the convention. We'll be regularly posting convention news, updates, and photos here.

Youmacon pre-registration ends September 15th so get your badges early and avoid the lines.

If you want to see us at a 2012 convention near you, then let your local convention know you want to see us there by suggesting Megatokyo in the guest relations forums. We'll definitely consider all invites.
