Still looking for a hat for the Halloween?

The creature on top of the hat is not an alien or a monster but a tiger.  This powerful animal has been a subject for worship, its strength and fearless image offers a kind of protection and aspiration for the Chinese.  Along with other costume of the tiger theme, the tiger hat would be given to the child by the parents on Chinese New Year so the child can be protected for the rest of the year.
