Didn't see the item because I had it delivered to my friend as a gift, but got pictures of her happily wearing it. My friend LOVES the scarf and says it's very warm. And thank you for the very fast delivery!

About

Controlling your brain meats.

Hi, my name is Josh and I make squids, that you wear on your head, as hats!

I made my first squid hat in May of 2008 as a wedding gift for my sister. I had decided that I wanted to make something by hand rather than give a generic store-bought forgettable. Why a squid hat? Well, the idea popped into my head while driving home one night. Thinking back on it later, I had made a drawing of a pirate with a squid on his head about a month earlier.

The gift went over so well that I decided to try selling them on Etsy. The first sold in a week, the second a week later. The third took another month. It wasn’t until September that sales really took off as Halloween rolled around. After that thing just kept rolling.

I have since expanded my designs to include sharks, octopuses, jellyfish, angler fish and mushrooms. I have also started making a range of small plush, non-hat, creatures. Whenever I design something, I try to imbue it with a feeling of fun and enjoyment. I mean, how can you feel bad about something if you’re wearing a stuffed jellyfish on your head?

My Etsy store has been a tremendous help in getting my hats out there. I don’t know if I could have made it without it. Especially since when I started making them I was suffering from near constant migraines and the Etsy store allowed me to make some money in the times I was able to sit upright. In 2010 one of my small squids appeared in season 4 of the web-series, The Guild, it was an incredible boost both to my ego and in people finding my work.

I will keep crafting and no matter what I make in the future, it will be to make someone smile and laugh.
