Ladies! During the AMA Conference in late July, I had the distinct honor of meeting Team Diva founder, biker babe, and artist, Amy Skaling. Amy is one of the coolest, nicest people you could ever meet and a true artist to boot. Amy makes hand-painted, hand-decorated cowboy hats in every color imaginable and which she festoons with shiny studs, crystals, rhinestones feathers, patches, and various richly colored ornaments. She has outfitted the heads of musicians, movie stars, and bikers all over the nation (both male and female).
In Amy’s repertoire are hats for every taste, in a variety of price points so everyone can sport a gorgeous Team Diva skull. I chose a silver and black hat (Raiders, baby!) at the conference and Amy sweetly offered to mail it to me after the conference so I wouldn’t have to worry about fitting it into my saddle bags for the long trip home. What a doll. I love my Team Diva hat! It makes my grey hair really stand out; and, there is no missing me when I walk into a room wearing an Amy Skaling original! Here’s a snap:
Diva Amy travels to bike shows, women’s events, and rallies to sell her wares, champion female ridership, and present her story. And, what a bike this woman rides! Her incredible motorcycle, that she calls the Diva Glide, literally takes one’s breath away. Amy has attached thousands of crystals to her Road Glide, which is a custom painted, shimmering work of art. It’s seriously drool-worthy! Check out her ride:
I had such a blast talking with Amy, drooling over her hats and gaping at her luminescent Harley. Getting to meet this amazing, sweet, and funny biker babe legend was awesome. I met a few other biker babe legends on this trip, too. So, stay tuned for future posts about them. And, if you get a chance to visit Amy, please tell her that Lizzy sent you. And, buy a hat. You’ll be Team Diva gorgeous!
