Merry Fezmas!

As we approach the Christmas holiday, we thought it only right to give our fans a bit of Christmas gift in the form of a large update to the Museum. Today, we have posted eight new fezzes, in six categories, with one becoming a completely new area of the collection!

You can start today’s tour over in the Improved Benevolent and Protected Order of Elks of the World display where you will see three new additions, including a Past Grand Exalted Rulers fez, which was a spectacular addition to the collection. Next, drop on by the Mahi Shrine area to check out one of our newest donations. Speaking of which, we also have a newly donated piece over in the Grotto area at the Zafar exhibit.  Oh, and while you’re in the Masonic area, check out our newest DeMolay fez as well!

We recently posted our first acquisitions of AHEPA fezzes and we just received another AHEPA fez to fill out this area, so make sure to give it a looksie. Finally, you can check out our brand new area dedicated to what we believe to be a clandestine Heroines of Jericho group. This area has proved very interesting to the Museum collectors and we hope you enjoy it.

After this update, we only have two fezzes left that haven’t been posted (and that’s only because we forgot to get pictures of them!) We wish everyone a happy holiday season and we look forward to talking about even more fezzes in the New Year!

Be thankful for fezzes!

As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday here in the US, we at the Virtual Museum of Fezology are thankful for all the great feedback we’ve received from those viewing the page. This collection is a labor of love and we really enjoy sharing it with everyone!

As a way to say “thank you,” we’ve updated the museum with two new exhibits before the holiday. First, you can learn more about Kismet Shrine, and it’s variant Shriner fez. Kismet may be small, but it’s an old Shrine with lots of history. Once you finish that, drop on by the Mokanna Grotto exhibit to learn more about the most unique and special Grotto still in existence (well, sort of.)

Enjoy your holiday!

Cleaning Out the Closet

That’s right boys and girls! You get an update two weeks in a row! We’ve had such a backlog of fezzes to post that we thought it would be a good idea to get some more exhibits up here ASAP. Today we’ve added two completely new areas to the museum, filling in some interesting niches.

The first new fez comes from a little known group called the Shrine Guilds of America, which is a ladies organization tied to Shriners International. It is a unique piece and was a great auction find for the museum.

Our second new exhibit comes from the Order of AHEPA – the American Hellenic Progressive Educational Association – a Greek rights group founded in Atlanta in the 1920’s. We have a nice example of an older fez as well as a more updated version for your viewing pleasure.

Thanks for stopping back and checking our the Museum! We hope you’ve enjoyed your visit!

Five Fez Update

Whew! We’ve finally gotten caught up on those boring real life tasks and have had a chance to do some much needed updates to the museum. Today, we have posted four new exhibits for you to enjoy. Start your tour of the new pieces over at the Alacala exhibit in the Order of Alhambra area where we have added a Past Grand Commander’s fez. Next, slip on over to the DOKK section of the Knights of Pythias to check out our new Royal Prince’s fez. After having your eyes dazzled there, shoot over to the Ladies of the Oriental Shrine of North American and check out our two acquisitions from Su-Zu Court No. 21. Oh, and why not end your journey with a little bit of mystery by checking our the new Bison fez at our Unknown Fezzes exhibit.

We hope you enjoy these updates and we encourage to stop back often to check out our ever expanding collection of fraternal fezzes.

A long awaited update…

Good day fellow Fezzians! Today we have a long awaited update to the fez museum. First, we start with a more general piece in the form of a fez from Medinah Shriners. We then, take a little detour into the obscure with some information on a rare United Order of Splendor and Perfection fez. Finally, we end our journey in the unknown, with the Chinar mini fez.

We hope you enjoy this update and we look forward to bringing you even more fezziness int he near future. We still have more than a dozen fezzes that are not yet on display, so check back often for more updates.
