You're about to have a (disco) ball! The Gumdrop Hat is a structured, round beret style hat, the Disco Ball Gumdrop Hat is exactly that... she's a disco ball as a hat! A lilac base features 360 degree real mirror disco tiles, leaving only a space for the Elleni Logo at the rear of the hat. These are real mirror pieces, so this hat is a legitimate disco ball and reflects light as a disco ball does - it's pretty incredible!
The Disco Ball Gumdrop Hat will be made in very limited quantities as it takes hours to make each one. Each is lovingly hand crafted, so will differ slightly from the one pictured in terms of exact tile placements. As each tile is hand placed (somewhere between 750-800 tiles I believe!) this hat is truly a work of art so please treat it as such. Being that they are real mirror pieces, they are just has breakable as mirror so be aware this hat is delicate. In addition to the mirror tiles smashing, they are hard glass attached to a softer, pliable base so if you press too much on the hat they may pop off.
Glass is sharp - so please also ensure you're being safe and don't engage in any activity that may result in the tiles being damaged, especially when it's being worn.
Though I will be packaging these hats with extra care, and you will be wearing yours with care - I will also be including a strip of 'just in case' mirror tiles should any mishaps occur during transit or throughout its life with you! (My traditional disco balls always have the odd tile mishap)
Simply cut out a tile, remove the adhesive backing and glue into the spot desired on the hat. Make sure to use glue, not just the adhesive backing - I recommend E6000 glue for any touch ups.
Please only spot clean and be careful in the rain. You can shine the disco tiles as you would any mirror! Note that this hat covered in glass so is quite heavy.
