My Precious...

Nuthin' says keep yer head warm during the holidays like a crocheted wool balding toupee with ears and eyes...



Just look at that likeness...



I know, stunning, is it not?

C'mon, sure Yoda hats are groovy, but I don't think anyone's got one of these! Then again, I don't know that anyone would want one of these either. Okay, so my style is a bit, um, unique. Whatever. At least I've got appropriate apparel for this event.

OK, start crocheting about 50 of these to take with you and sell them for at least $99.95 each while at the show. You can walk around inside with one on, and send everyone who stops you out to a cohort who will sell them out of your trunk in the parking lot.

I want one, and know aat least one other person who would kill for one.

Hah!!! I've been making hats with ears too. HOWEVER, my current hat is the oh toooo cute Kitty Hat. LOVE your baldy guy...the wrinkles in his brow are amazing!

Heather said...

Sweet! Can Hobbit feet be far behind?? :)

Micky said...

Absotively Awesome!!!

So, could there be some elven ears and braids in your future??? lol

Your imagination just leaves me in awe.

Oooh, better yet--a crocheted one ring!! With embroidered lettering.

Ok, I know, I really get into LOTR stuff!!

Hahahahahahahaha!!! That is fantastic!

Vik said...

I agree with the first comment! You could sell them at the show, Regina!

Seriously - make a few. Tuck them in your bag. *When someone goes bonkers over your hat and offers to buy it off you (and they will), do it. Then pull another one out of your bag, put it on and repeat from *

My mom suggested I do this when I knit up a "BEAT LA" beanie (forgive me SoCal Dodger fans) for a Giants game and I could have sold a dozen of those at the ballpark with the amount of people that came up to me.

And, in my experience, LOTR fans are even more enthusiastic than drunken Giants fans.

Aaaack!!! You are amazing!! I agree, you should make a few and sell them, or at least take business cards to give to the hoardes of people who will stop and ask you where you got your fabulous lid!

Samantha said...

That is by far the best hat I've seen in quite some time!
