Lords of Silly Headgear

If the cap fits wear it. Certain important personages, of kingly status at least, are often portrayed wearing curious ornamented headgear somewhat similar to a medieval jesters' cap, but with much more than bells on.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Jester-gods graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Jester-gods movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Jester-gods statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Jester-gods. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
