Welcome to AJ’s Mad Hattery!
AJ Pickard, got her start in Millinery by creating hats for church tea parties. A road trip through New Orleans inspired her to add to her repertoire. She began creating Voodoo, Cosplay, Steampunk, Post-apocalyptic and Halloween-themed mini top hats. AJ says each hat has it’s own personality, and must speak to her. Her master patterns have been distilled from years of modifications. She demands high-quality fabrics like silks, satins, cottons and wool. Her repeat customers are a testament to her meticulous attention to detail and finish work. Her most popular hats are her Steampunk Wedding Hats. AJ works out of her home in Carmichael, CA with her family and her muse, a Springer Spaniel named Wailea. She has joined forces with her daughter Casey Saumure, Jewelry Designer at Rue de la Mort Jewelry for their Comicon debut. Visit frequently as we
