We honor the great adventurers and heroes of the space race, the Space Chimp. Daring to go where no man has gone... until at least a few monkeys went there first and safely returned with no discernible ill effects beyond the trauma of being shoved into a capsule with little to no explanation of how this was going to benefit them or their species beyond scoring a few bananas on the return... but I digress. The latest in our now notorious obsession with creating designs featuring primates wearing awesome headgear on a fez, the Space Chimp fez features the hero...

Fez of the Week, primate, purple, tall, wavy -

Alright, you people put me up to this and I can’t resist a monkey wearing a silly hat on a silly hat. I wasn't actually planning to post another Fez of the Week this month, and certainly had no plan to post a second one this week, but after the overwhelming demand I received after an offhanded remark I made on Twitter, I decided that I needed to rise to the challenge. The Monkey Pope is embroidered on our vibrant purple velvet and features what may be the best monkey face I have done so far. Any resemblance to any church officials...

Cruise Crazy, Fez of the Week, joco, Jonathan Coulton, monkey, pirate, primate, skull -

Each February people far more interesting than I gather in Florida and board a cruise ship to the Caribbean for seven days of food, drink, gaming, comedy and music; all hosted by the phenomenal Jonathan Coulton and his cadre of entertainment cut-throats. Sadly I will not get to join the JoCo Cruise Crazy once again but that doesn't mean I can’t live vicariously through those that do!

Our Obsession with monkeys wearing hats continues in epic form! It's a monkey, wearing a Samurai helmet, on a fez! Do we have to diagram the equation of awesomeness that is involved here? See you take the monkey and multiply it with Samurai -don't forget to carry the Bushido- and, look it's not that complica... MONKEY WEARING A SAMURAI HELMET ON A FEZ!!! What started as a simple suggestion made in passing by a friend on the interwebs quickly demanded that it be made real. Now let’s be honest, most fez ideas get filed away in what passes as a...

clockwork, Fez Friday, last call, monkey, Newsletter, primate, winged monkey -

April has been so frantic I needed to do a second newsletter. We are hard at work prepping for our next batch of conventions but I wanted to let you know about a few things before we really hit the grind. The Winged Monkey Fez debuts! Our newest fez features an original design inspired by the works of L. Frank Baum. I was first inspired to make a flying monkey themed fez while sitting in an airport waiting for a flight. After some time and a few concepts I think I finally have my official travel fez. These are up...
