We know that many of you will be happy to see the end of January, but the Go Ape tribe are looking forward to the 31st for another reason altogether: it’s National Gorilla Suit Day!
For you lovely folk, National Gorilla Suit Day presents the perfect opportunity to stroll around town dressed as an ape…and get away with it! If anyone raises their eyebrows (or runs away screaming), just say to them:
“Didn’t you know it’s National Gorilla Suit Day?!”
Pass on the knowledge, and hopefully next year they’ll join in and celebrate too!
Anyway, we’re actually after your help. We’ve decided it’s time to refresh our wardrobe. As you can imagine, we get through our fair share of gorilla suits. So we’ve decided to treat ourselves to some new furry finery… a gift to us, from us!
We’ve scoured the web for some new suits and have narrowed it down to five options. Your opinions, please…
A classic choice, and not too different from our current clobber (though this guy does look a bit possessed, sort of like Frankenstein’s monster, don’t you think?). The question is: do we go with what we know, or mix it up a little this time…?
Dressed in this neon suit, there’ll be no more blending in with the forest! And that means no more creeping up on visitors and surprising them when they least expect it (boo!). We dig pink, but we can’t imagine it staying this colour for long in the forest.
Woah! What is this? A freshly-shaved gorilla? We’re sure it’d be easier navigating one of our Tree Top Adventures courses with this sleek suit on, but it lacks authenticity. It won’t be as snug as the furry alternatives either, meaning we might get chilly when swinging from tree to tree. And are we the only ones who find it kind of creepy?!
Another realistic gorilla suit and we think this guy looks much more cheery than option 1! Oh-ah-ah, or oh-ah-na?
Oh no! One of the Go Ape tribe members has been captured by a gorilla! We’re sure this suit will get some laughs, but that big cage on the front might not make it the most practical of options!…And there we have it five choices for Go Ape’s new gorilla suits.
