Has electricstyles.com shut down? Where to buy military hats with EL wire ?

Postby Abbey2412 » Mon Sep 18, 2017 4:00 am

Hello lovely burner crew,

I used to buy these amazing military hats with EL wire embedded in them from electricstyles.com but now the website seems to be unavailable, their amazon store seems to have shut down and they are not available on ravenation anymore either. I've tried emailing the store but just get error messages.

Two questions:

1. Does anyone know if they have shut down?
2. Does anyone else know where I can get similar/the same hats with EL wire embedded from? I've tried searching loads of places with no luck.

thank you so much for your help!!!!

I just about flagged this as spam, but the shop you're interested is supposedly gone. So no bother.

Why don't you just make your own? Get some fishing wire, a needle/thimble, some EL wire, a hat, and spend a night creating your own costume piece rather than buying one. Something like this. I've done it. It's not hard, you can customize it however you want, and then you'll actually have some pride in a piece you constructed for yourself.

I did declare my hats, photos attached, as that's the joy for me. I'm useless at sewing and loved the fact that these hats were cheap and had EL wire embedded already. Hence asking if anyone knew where I could source more to decorate them!

For what it's worth, the website seems to be working fine.
