    There might not be. Real blood stains don't come out; Clyde Barrow's pants still have visible blood stains and they were washed, cut down and worn by Blanche's kids for years after his death. Stage...

    Aluminium foil and super glue are your best friends for that kind of modding. If you have confederates with slouch hats, you can trim off the Bruins then glue the foil side pieces on in their place....

    I'll second what has already been said, but also add that because of the material they're made of, they're probably not going to fade in the sun the same way a period hat will. The raised "nap" (for...
