Headcrab! Quickly, grab a crowbar!

Watch your head! The Half-Life HeadCrab Hat is here to leap onto your face and stick its nasty claws on your brains. This plush hat is made to resemble the parasitic, crab-like, alien organism from the highly-acclaimed game series. It looks oddly cute and ready to cuddle, but, beware, it’s got four claws that rest on your head and grisly teeth that can eat you up. It’s made entirely from polyester, making it just as comfortable as it is fashionable. What’s more is that it has adjustable Velcro straps, allowing it to fit…or turn just about any head into a mindless zombie.
$21 – $25

It’s a Half Life head crab cap costume

Headcrabs, as they’re commonly called, are parasitic alien creatures from the Xen dimension featured in the long-running series of Half-Life games. They leap onto potential hosts’ heads, break into their skulls with their beaks, and take control of them.

This Half-Life HeadCrab Hat is an accessory designed to make it look like the so-called alien creature has latched on to your head and taken over your body, which can spice up your cosplay attires or simply protect you from the sun on a hot day.

It’s fashionable, comfortable, and detailed. The only catch is it could convert you to a zombie. Not scary at all, right?

Awesome product features

  • Game-realistic printed texture details: The Half-Life HeadCrab Hat looks so detailed you’d be forgiven to think that it’s the exact creature from the game jumping out of your computer screen. It’s the ultimate piece to go on the shelf of a collector or to complete Half-Life-inspired cosplay costumes.
  • Otherworldly comfort: It’s not only fashionable but also fits snug on your head being made entirely of high-quality polyester. This alien headwear is not sacrificing your comfort while it takes over your motor functions as it transforms you into a zombie.
  • Adjustable head grip: This plush headwear fits most, if not all, sizes of heads. It has an adjustable Velcro strap at the back that you can use to loosen or tighten your fit. Just be warned that once it’s on, it begins breaking into your skull.

Who will appreciate this as a gift

Surely, no one wants to become a host for a parasitic alien. But a lot of people want to celebrate the Half-Life saga in any way they can while they lose their wits about the mythical sequel that’s seemingly never coming.

The Half-Life HeadCrab is the perfect display piece for any fan of the games from Valve. It’s also great for cosplayers who want to take their costumes to the next level. This headcrab headwear is going to turn some heads and make people think the recipient is a mind-controlled host after series protagonist, Gordon Freeman.

Because you need to know

Is this an officially-licensed item?

Yes, the Half-Life HeadCrab Hat is an officially-licensed collectible from Valve Corporation, the same company behind the game.

Will it turn me into a zombie?

It definitely will. Be warned, these so-called hats are sourced from Xen and shipped to shady warehouses before they’re delivered to your homes. We wish we were kidding, but we suggest keeping a Gravity Gun handy when you receive your package. We don’t want to be responsible for anyone turning into brain-dead creatures.
