Cosplay costumes have undoubtedly been popular for decades, and their rise in popularity began back in the 90s. This performance art originated in Japan, from where it spread around the world. Since everyone has a beloved character from a movie, comic, video game or maybe a cartoon, it is very interesting to have a costume that is inspired by your favorite one. For example, when it comes to Halloween, it’s almost impossible not to see people dressed as Spider-Man, Batman, Superman, or maybe in these days popular costumes inspired by characters from video games like Overwatch, Fortnite, etc.
However, although we have mostly talked about characters from the film industry and video games so far, none of them will be a topic. Today we will talk about one of the most iconic characters from the manga world, which is certainly Jotaro Kujo. Although perhaps not the most popular character in the manga and anime series, Jotaro is certainly remembered for his distinctive outfit, and above all his hat.
Jotaro Kujo is a character who is the protagonist of the 3rd part of the manga series called JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure. He was also involved in parts 4 and 6, but certainly, the most notable role was in the third one. The character itself and the entire series was created and written by Hirohiko Araki. You can read more about it below besides reviews of the best Jotaro hats currently available on the market. So, if you’re ready, let’s get started.
A very short history of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure manga series and Jotaro Kujo
As we mentioned earlier, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is actually a Japanese manga series, specifically one of the best-selling manga series ever. It has a very long history, from 1987 until today. The creator and illustrator of this manga series is Hirohiko Araki. He is also most responsible for the great popularity of one of the most iconic characters in the entire series, but also the manga world. It is Jotaro Kujo who first appears in parts 3 and later in parts 4 and 6.
An interesting fact is that he was actually inspired by the legendary actor Clint Eastwood. So, the whole third part revolves around Jotaro who actually possesses a supernatural ability called Stand. Jotaro is a great fighter, but also a very stylish character, which is why he is actually one of the most popular in the series. Generally speaking, all the characters in all eight parts of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure so far have been illustrated fantastically, which has contributed to great success on the American market.
Perhaps the most interesting detail of the outfit of the main protagonist Jotaro is his hat. It has become so popular that it is still a common and favorite detail when it comes to cosplay. We have decided to create a list of the best Jotaro hats that you can buy today, and the list can be found below.
Best Jotaro Hats
1. Cosplay Real Type and Taro Kujojo Bizarre Adventure Jotaro Kujo of JoJo Wind Hat Black by GEANBAYE
Simply put, this black Jotaro hat is inspired by the original we all remember from the manga series. And at first glance, we can immediately conclude that this is a truly credible replica. What we like most about this model is the fact that a lot of attention is paid to detail.
For example, high-quality materials were selected. This Jotaro hat is made entirely of cotton, which certainly contributes to the comfort and overall better appearance of the hat. Also, the details on the hat are really made of metal which is a big plus. The manufacturer could have used plastic or some other material, but choosing the metal is the right way. Price details are currently unavailable.
2. JoJo’s Hats JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Hat by Damdos
This Jotaro hat is essentially very similar to the previous, as well as the next model on our list, which we will talk about a bit later. We don’t think they are identical, but all of them are very authentical copies of the original one from the manga.
The fact that we especially liked was the use of quality materials both for the hat itself and for the accessories. The fabric used is a combination of cotton and polyester (65% of cotton and 35% of polyester). As for the metal details, they are made of zinc alloy.
Also, we like that the size can be adjusted according to your head. However, we can’t say we like everything. The only thing we would complain about is the weight of the metal details. This could probably have been reduced for even greater comfort. In terms of price, it is currently possible to find this Jotaro hat for around $24.
3. JoJo’s Cap Jotaro Hat by Yaboo
So, we said a little while ago that this model is quite similar in design terms to the previous ones, but the materials used make a difference. For example, sturdy polyurethane was used as well as very soft cotton in most. All this means that the materials used are very durable and that this product have deserved place on our list.
Also, metal accessories are made in detail. However, one thing is very interesting, and that is the price of this product. Namely, although this product is really superbly made, its price is more than budget-friendly. For just $14, this Jotaro hat is available on Amazon.
4. JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Baseball Cap Hat by UU-Style
Last but not least Jotaro hat is this one by UU-Style. The design is original and incredibly reminiscent of the one from the manga series. When it comes to the materials used in the production, we must emphasize that a similar combination was used as in the previous case, i.e. PU (polyurethane) and cotton for most of the hat.
This combination of materials makes the hat durable, resistant to damage and very easy to wash (machine or handwash). This one also includes very detailed and finely done accessories (thread and badge on the front). Finally, we must mention that the price and quality are not harmonized here, which is good for you if you decide to buy this hat. Although the quality is at a high level, the price is quite budget-friendly. For a price tag of just $15, you’ll be able to order this hat from Amazon.
