Hat & Sunglasses:
Dr. Alan Grant might not be as suave as Dr. Indiana Jones, but the paleontologist picked up a fashion tip or two from watching Indy on the big screen because he also shares his trademark brown fedora. Maybe professors just have a thing for fedoras when they get out in the field.
Dr. Grant wears a wide brimmed fedora and a pair of aviator sunglasses to keep the sun out of his eyes as he looks out for velociraptors on Isla Nublar. Pick up a high quality tan fedora online at Amazon or at your local department store to get the Alan Grant look.
Out in the field when he’s out digging up dinosaur bones, Dr. Grant wears a sturdy pair of khaki pants and a long-sleeved denim shirt. He fleshes out his attire with a red bandana around his neck to keep his skin safe from UV rays during his long excavations. And of course, he doesn’t hit the excavation site without wearing a pair of brown hiking / work boots which helps him stay comfortable during a long day’s work.
You will be able to find many of these items at retail and department stores. We’ve hunted for the replicas for these Dr. Alan Grant costume items and found what we believe are the best matches.
With your Dr. Grant costume complete, you’re ready to hit the convention floor or halloween scene. Pair up with a partner or friend dressed up as Dr. Ellie Sattler to really turn some heads. Just remember to leave the dinosaur poop at home!
