Remember when hippos were popular, lovable creatures? When they had board games dedicated to them (like Hungry Hungry Hippos) and were often portrayed as silly and comical in old-school cartoons? Hippos were once everybody's favorite megafauna. But then something happened. All these "nature shows" and "scientists" started coming out and saying that hippopotamus are actually one of nature's most dangerous, aggressive animals... so hardcore, in fact, that not even crocodiles dare mess with them. Hippos have never needed a "rebranding" more than they do now. And you can help! This Halloween, become their laid-back, fun-loving ambassador to the rest of humanity by wearing this awesome adult hippo costume!
While we won't dispute the science of hippo behavior (especially the part about how crocodiles are afraid of them), this hippo is a real party animal. And most importantly, the type that's safe to approach in the wild! The fabric the jumpsuit is made of is a soft knit flannel, so if someone does get close enough it won't be weird if they want to pet you (unless they're a crocodile...then it'd be kinda weird). There's also a stuffed tail attached to the suit (for scientific accuracy) and a "hippo head" hood that sorta makes it look like you were swallowed feet-first by one of these giant water dwellers. Because there's nothing like saying "hi" to your friends from the inside of a hippo's mouth!
Made by us, the adult hippo costume will make you a worthy representative of a proud and noble species... and assure that everyone knows you're king of the Halloween watering hole!
