It seems like Epcot is getting a whole load of new merchandise lately! Earlier this month, over at the Mexico Pavilion, calaveras, or Mexican decorative sugar skulls, were the focus of the new designs on their merchandise, and it seems the trend has continued over with these brand-new Ears that are just in time for Dia de los Muertos!
These brand new ears and ear hat cost both $27.99 each and are really quite stunning with these bright colors! Let’s take a closer look!
Starting with the headband, we can see a lot of detail was put into these ears. The pattern features sugar skulls, music notes, flowers and even a few hidden Mickeys.
The bow is etched out like traditional Mexican papel cortado (“paper cutouts”) and sits on the side, surrounded by beautiful flowers that line the top of the headband.
The fabric on the ears is black satin and it really makes all the colorful designs pop out when looking at it.
If you’re more of an Ear Hat fan, don’t worry. We’ve got you covered as well!
This ear hat features a beautiful large sugar skull on the front and is topped off with, well, a top hat!
The design on the ears lets everyone know that you’re celebrating Dia de los Muertos too!
The sugar skull design is a mix of being printed onto the fabric and some of it being stitched in, making the face really pop out against the black background.
The back of the hat is left blank, so you can get it embroidered if you like. Mouse Gear does have embroidery machines, so you don’t have to rush over to Magic Kingdom to get your ears embroidered at The Chapeau.
Both Ears are detailed with the celebration titled on them, as well as other little colorful designs.
What do you think of these new ears? Will you be picking up a pair to add to your wardrobe for when you’re celebrating Dia de los Muertos yourself?
