The Christmas Cat Fascinator

I recently had a request for a custom Christmas Cat Hat via my Etsy storefront The Notso Kitty Shop. The purchaser, a lovely person named Emily, asked that I make a “holiday ornament fascinator” in the same vein as my “planetary fascinator” already on display in my store.

Here is a picture of the original “planetary fascinator”:

After about a week’s time, I had completed the new “holiday ornament cat fascinator”. I used traditional red, green and silver decorations per Emily’s request… I think it came out splendidly! Notso Fluffy modeled this one as well. Presenting The Christmas Cat Fascinator:

I think now I need to make a few more of these for the Notso Kitty Shop in the future! I just loved the original so much— but it sold out much too quickly 🙂 I like the idea of stocking a few in a few different color varieties. Notso has never been so well decorated! I’ll post again here soon when I create a few more. Also in the works are some Hanukkah looks— though I’m not quite too sure what those might end up looking like. Knowing me, they will be wacky– that is for certain 🙂

Until next time, I leave you with a few more pictures of Notso Fluffy sporting his fabulous Christmas Cat Fascinator. Enjoy 😉

Christmas Cat Hats

I have decided to decorate my house for the holidays for the first time this year; why not start with the cats? 🙂 I’ve designed a few new Christmas cat hats for the Notso Kitty Shop to help get me in the holiday spirit. Deck the cats with boughs of holly? Sure, why not!

First I made this lovely little Christmas Tree Cat Hat modeled here by the famous Notso Fluffy. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find an electric light set that was small enough to use for this hat— so the lights are non-working. I think they are still fabulous all the same, as does Notso. Whenever I see this hat I can’t help but think of “One Little Christmas Tree” by Stevie Wonder. Even if I don’t get a real tree this year, this one would be the perfect substitute 🙂

For the second of the Christmas Cat Hats, I went with a more traditional hat design and decorated it with some holly and festive feathers. Notso modeled this hat as well– half holiday pimp, half classic hat 🙂

That’s all the fun with Christmas cat hats for now. Now time to think about decorating the rest of the house now that the cat is taken care of! We’ll see what I come up with on that front in a few weeks!

Celebrity Pet Costumes: Featuring the FAMOUS Notso Fluffy

Every now and then I wonder if my pet costumes are too crazy for public consumption. I mean who really (besides myself) feels the need to dress their cat up like Kanye West? Clearly that’s not an urge that afflicts most normal people.

But every now and then I am surprised to get a sign of acceptance from the mainstream– this time in the form of Notso’s Kanye West / Kitty West costume being used in a Yahoo! video story!!! I was contacted a few weeks ago by a producer at Yahoo asking permission to use my Kitty West image for a story on celebrity pet costumes. Yesterday they let me know the story had been posted.

To watch the full video, click here! Notso has an appearance around the 37 second mark!

On top of the brief video appearance, if you happened to click on the “Celebrity Pet Costume” story link on Yahoo!’s homepage on Halloween (yes, that’s right, THE HOMEPAGE) you were greeted by the following image:

 AMAZING! Notso is clearly on his way to being famous!!! Crazy or not, my cat costumes have at least some viral appeal. Thanks Yahoo! for validating the insanity that is the Notso Kitty Shop!  I can’t wait to get back to work on some new ideas…. Let’s see where this brings me next!
