IllusionEars Update

It's time for an IllusionEars update; it's been a while since I posted one!  Eliot and I have introduced a few more designs since I first told you about our idea back at the end of July.  Most recently, we've added two new designs to the collection:

I'm so excited about the Harry Potter Deathly Hallows ears.  This was one of the first designs we came up with.  I insisted we make Harry Potter themed mouse ears since I love Disney and the wizarding world so much.  This was literally one of the first designs Eliot made me.  He brought home the prototype months before we officially announced our business.  It brings me great joy to finally have these listed in my Etsy shop!

Our other new creation is the Monorail design.  This is Eliot's baby.  We both agreed the world really needed monorail ears and he designed these all on his own.  They've been through few designs tweaks, but we're both really happy with the end result!

I'm incredibly proud of how well they've been received.  It's a big deal to wear your own creations to the parks.  I got a ton of compliments on my Harry Potter ears while visiting the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.  The Universal staff loved them and I had some great interactions with some of the "cast".  (The Knight Bus conductor was quite impressed with my Transfiguration Spell gone awry.)  The monorail ears were very popular at Disney.  I got a bunch of compliments from both guests and cast members- most notably from Disney artist Larry Dotson when he was signing our art prints!

There are plenty more designs to come.  In fact, I'm working on a the finishing touches of one right now.  Eliot's working on a few designs that he really wants to surprise me with.  (I can't wait to see what he's cooked up now!)  And we've got a whole list of other ideas!  There's one thing for sure- we certainly won't be bored this winter!  °o°
