Halloween is next Thursday and we've noticed an interesting trend in hat sales the past few weeks. The 3" fedora is a popular style, but sales have really picked up this month, with most customers requesting to receive their hat by Halloween. After doing a little research, we found out that many folks are using the hats as part of a Halloween costume!
It's probably safe to say that most of us have seen the movie "Jurassic Park." If you haven't seen it, maybe you're still able to picture one of the lead characters, Dr. Alan Grant (played by Sam Neill). Throughout the movie, Dr. Grant wears a hat that looks quite a bit like our 3" fedora! He even has a 5-strand horse hair hatband that he wears with it, similar to a style we carry!
Bryan writes: "My 3 year old loves dinosaurs. So when we asked her what she wanted to be for Halloween, without hesitation, she said a T-Rex. My wife and I thought it would be cute to do a family costume so we all went to Disney's "Mickey's Not so Scary Halloween Party" as Jurassic Park. Sunbody offered the perfect hat (3" Fedora) for my Dr. Alan Grant costume. We were a huge hit with the guests and park staff. I hope you enjoy the photos."
Did you know? Universal has another Jurassic Park movie in the works! It is currently in the casting process but will be released in 3D summer of 2015. We wonder if this hat will make another appearance! Regardless, your Dr. Grant costume is sure to stay relevant and a crowd favorite for years to come! (As an added bonus, you can wear the hat day-to-day!)
Here is a close-up of the hat. Looks great, doesn't it?
We've also heard of SunBodys being worn as part of other costumes such as Indiana Jones, rodeo clowns and little cowgirls and cowboys!
