Happy Gilmore is a fictional character that stars in the comedy film of the same name. Created by Tom Herlihy and Adam Sandler in 1996, Happy Gilmore dreams of becoming a professional hockey player, he possesses a very strong snapshot, that was taught to him by his father. His skills with the hockey stick are not mirrored to his woeful skating ability which has always stopped him from getting into hockey teams. He oneway stumbles into golf and learns very quickly that he has a talent for it.
The Happy Gilmore costume changes quite a bit throughout the film but the premise of his costume stays the sam e.g. shirt, t-shirt etc. I will pick one with the hockey jersey as it best captures the Happy Gilmore look . I will leave links below to all the items used to complete this costume, along within information on all the items quality as well.
Happy Gilmore Costume hockey shirt
For the Happy Gilmore hockey shirt, I found on amazon. The hockey shirt Happy Gilmore is the Boston Bruins team jersey. It is made from polyester. There are no player names on the back of the jersey, I see some people ask that. The jersey’s quality is spot on, as it should be, considering the asking price. It runs a little big but I expected that. It was very comfortable to wear. Overall I definitely recommend this jersey, perfect for the Happy Gilmore costume.
The Happy Gilmore navy pants, I got on amazon. I went for sweat pants made from cotton. It’s a little lighter of a color that I was looking for but it was the best I could find within a reasonable budget. I found the sizing to be fairly accurate. I personally love these types of pants for around the house, so comfortable to wear and I’m happy to say this was no different, kinda surprised given the price. Overall I recommend this for the Happy Gilmore costume.
The golf club, I found on amazon. I went for a driver as it is the club he often uses in the film. I must confess, I don’t know a whole lot about golf club so I picked mine based on reviews and price. The one I ordered did everything I needed it to do. It was built well, with some quality materials used. If you are versed on golf club, then I suggest you pick one based on your own expertise, If not I would recommend this one as a prop for the Happy Gilmore costume.
The last piece to the Happy Gilmore costume are the shoes, for these I got on amazon. I went for a simple pair of black shoes. I went for the Reebok brand as I have owned a few pairs in the past and they were a good quality shoe. The shoe is made from synthetic materials with a rubber sole. They have a 3d measurement based on what type of shoe you are or currently wearing and it’s quite accurate I have to say. Overall I recommend this for the Happy Gilmore costume.
