Perhaps our new Festive Hat is the fruit of our most unlikely collaboration yet. A certain well-known jolly elf (from even further up North than us) sent a letter this year and expressed an interest in a custom design. Now, Steve doesn’t usually entertain such requests, but the tone of the letter was one of urgency.
Our hats and helmets sit nicely (if they are exercised regularly and in a good mood) on one human head. Some of our hats and helmets can be custom-fitted with the internal headband included in the template, while others just do their own thing and use your head as a nest or landing pad of sorts. We hope you enjoy making and training them as much as wearing them.
We quickly discovered that the Festive Hat is much more than a fitting tribute to good ol’ Saint Nick. We made the mistake of leaving it unsupervised with our other Magic Hat. When we got back to the Lab, we found them entangled in a sort of millinery wrestling match. All the while, angry elves skittered across the floor, attempting to stuff hopping rabbits into burlap sacks. Once the melee subsided and we were finally able to wear our new Festive Hat, we discovered that we felt an overwhelming sense of merriment all-the-while. We hope you feel the same and wish you all a blissful holiday season.
Simply print the templates on paper, stick them to card, cut them out, match the numbers and join the tabs together. The Mask is scaled to fit an adult but you can make children's masks by scaling down the templates when you print - check our FAQ page for details. The templates come with instructions for an internal head band that can be adjusted by moving the fixing points to get a snug fit. Some templates are supplied with component colour guides to help you create identifiable markings unique to the Mask.
