You want sombreros for the Vegas Con, I got your stinkin' sombreros

My wife just found sombreros at a Party City near our house in Vegas for $4! I got one and if you want one when you get here's where you go:

http://maps.google.com/maps?q=7751+W...0.036774&hl=en

If you want one but don't want to go to Party City, I'll get them and we can make arrangements for payment and delivery.

PM me for info.

Re: You want sombreros for the Vegas Con, I got your stinkin' sombrero

Okay, here's how you wear a sombrero at the movie without them getting in anybody's way: Many craft stores sell doll-sized hats of various kinds -- sombreros included -- for doll-making projects and other crafts. Just get a package of them, glue or stitch on a safety pin, and voila! You have a sombrero pin to proudly wear as a badge to the theatre. If a whole group of people do this, you will have the non-sombrero badge wearers wondering what's going on, which is always fun!

Or, you could take the small sombreros and attach an elastic to them... wear them as hair ornaments, or even small hats if the elastic is long enough. Though that might get in the way.

I was going to add an animation of some dude flogging it but it seemed like a lot more work than it was worth. I think you get the point.

Atavachron, don't post images from a site you don't own unless it's just a link.

I do own that site. Have since 1996. To prove it I just reduced the size by 50%.



I read somewhere here that this is exactly what I was supposed to do. Use a site where I can put an image so it isn't hot linked. At least you won't get one of those "This image no longer exists" messages that you get from photo bucket et al.
