New Hat Rack just in time for Comicon

Well the UPS man never let’s me down.  I purchased this great hat rack for the Comicon show coming up in June.  I realized our little table wasn’t enough for all of the fabulous things we are going to have ready for the show.  I ordered this yesterday from U Line in LA, and as promised, it was here about 24 hours later.  I just filled it with 20 more mini top hats ready for decoration.    My daughter got our placement perfectly on the Comicon website.  The blood on the Zombie hats is real.  I’ve been working my fingers to the bone getting ready for Comicon!  It’s going to be more fun than a Zombie walk at a Mensa convention.  We can’t wait to see you there! ~AJ

Skilled Milliner AJ Pickard and her jewelry-designer daughter Casey Saumure premier their joined Cosplay accessories at Sacramento Comicon.  AJ Pickard began creating high-quality top hats for her church’s Mad Hatter Tea Parties.  Inspired on a trip through New Orleans to create Voodoo, Cosplay, Steampunk, Post-apocalyptic and Halloween-themed mini top hats.  The wild hats were the most popular.  AJ’s daughter, Casey got married in a Virginia City cemetery.  The hunt for Victorian bustle gown and mini top hat inspired her progeny to create what she calls “Jewelry from the dark side.”  Casey Saumure began creating creepy jewelry for fun.  Skeletons, zombies, ouija boards and circus freaks-if it was dark, Casey wanted a piece of it.  The two combined their skills naturally to create fabulous pieces.  After last-years wildly successful Comicon hit Sacramento, her daughter suggested they join forces in Artist’s Alley.  “These aren’t your church hats”, AJ smiles.  “You can’t wear a Ouija board necklace everywhere.”  We like wild.  I knew Comicon would appreciate us.”

The mother-daughter team can be found in Artist’s Alley at Comicon Sacramento on June 19-21st at the Sacramento Convention Center.  Look for AJ’s Mad Hatttery and Rue de la Mort Jewelry.  AJ’s Mad Hattery can be reached at (808)291-3266.  Online at  Her daughter Casey Saumure can be reached at (916)759-7880, or online at   See you at Comicon.
