The hat

Honestly, I can’t remember why we had the Joss is a Hottie hats made. But if I had to guess, I’d say it was at Kai Cole’s insistence. When Kai first learned about the club, she suggested several activities including poetry writing, and I bet she suggested that we needed hats or apparel as well. But I could be wrong. In any case, when I asked around at the Bronze to see if people would actually buy and wear Joss is a Hottie hats, I had responses from maybe 15 people, including a few VIPS (people who worked on Buffy and Angel). So I ordered 19 of them, in order to have one for Joss and one for Kai and a few extras.

I took the hats to the 2001 Posting Board Party and distributed them to the people who had ordered them. There were a few requests from other VIPs to wear them – I’m pretty sure it was a great gag and they all thought it hilarious, but I was pretty sincere about it. (I’m perhaps a bit too earnest and not ironic enough about this whole Joss is a Hottie thing, but that is neither here nor there.) Regardless of people’s reasons for enjoying them, I had a great time and felt like they were a big hit and the hats even garnered a press mention over at IGN SciFi. A friend who had the fortune to visit the Mutant Enemy offices after the party told me they even had one pinned to their bulletin board.

Sadly, I didn’t anticipate demand for the hats and there were more people who wanted them than I ended up having available. But here, many years later, I’m working on creating a similar hat on Zazzle, so you can purchase your own if you feel inclined to share that you, too, think Joss is a Hottie.

Here are some pictures of folks wearing the hat:
