Fez-o-rama is a unique small business that produces fine hand-made, embroidered velvet fezzes. We have also in the past produced custom laser-etched glassware, matching embroidered clothing, as well as commissioned other artists to produce fez accessories. (but mainly we’re all fezzes!)
We’re located in Southern California and all of our production is USA based. We have shipped worldwide and have our fezzes on the heads of many a insanely happy client in hundreds of countries.What makes us a truly unique company is not only what we make, but also the fact that we are an artist run operation. Our designs are created and programmed in-house and the vast majority of production is done by those very same artists. From start to finish we put our focus on our creative expression. We are not just a design front for some factory. The same few people that created the patterns and design the embroideries also answer the emails, sew the fezzes, ship the boxes, design the website and attend the shows. This creative passion extends to our presence on the convention floor with our award-winning self-built custom designed booth and displays. We tend to eschew conventional presentations for a more hand-made, artisan style that better represents our product, our company and our design philosophy.The way we do things is just as important to us as what we do.
Since its inception in 2005, Fez-o-rama has produced thousands of fezzes, both from the mind of our in-house design maven Jason Rodgers, and from designs collaborated and licensed with artists such as Derek Yaniger, Shag, and Mike Mignola – as well as companies like Super7, Funko, and Fender Guitar. We are the licensed fez makers for the Sons of the Desert – the international Laurel & Hardy appreciation society based on the 1934 Laurel and Hardy film of the same name. We also produce custom fezzes for many other groups and have required that they have actual ownership of the artwork before we begin the collaboration process. We can not, and will not reproduce copyrighted artwork without written permission of the Copyright owner. We value the creative endeavors of others and would not, and do not exploit their work.
The Fez-o-rama Booth
Our Fez-o-rama booth shows off our niche product with an equally unique display. The booths function and form can be set-up and broken down in mere minutes, and is reminiscent of the 1930’s ‘suitcase salesman’ in its construction – sturdy yet flexible. Built for the standard 10’ x 10’ spacing, we can be set into almost any location irregardless of alignment or frontage, and have been in locations as small as 4’ x 6’ to as large as 10’ x 20’.
We began attending conventions back in 2004 with Tiki Oasis (www.tikioasis.com), and continue to sponsor and exhibit at this event each year. Tiki Oasis is now in its 12th year and grown to where its now consuming the entire event hotel as well as surrounding hotels for the weekend festivities.
Other recent events that we’ve exhibited our wares include:
- Arizona Amazing Comicon
- HP Lovecraft film festival
- The Los Angeles Comikaze
- L.A. Bentcon
At each convention we strive to release one or two ‘event specific’ fez designs – giving that event an exclusive item not only for collectors but one that builds on event loyalty. We also promote each event on our websites homepage – which for 2011 had over 79,000 page views by over 49,000 unique addresses – and on average about 1,300 people viewing our site each week.
We’re excited to expand our presence to other markets, and look forward to many varied conventions throughout the year.
