John Hammond

John Hammond

John Hammond had good intentions when he decided to resurrect dinosaurs but as we all know things didn't go as planned. However, John did somehow manage to keep his clothes relatively white despite all of the chaos. If you're bold enough to pull off an all white wardrobe, perhaps you're also willing to test your craft skills and recreate John Hammond's famous amber mosquito cane. Don't worry, no one will expect you to clone a T-Rex.

  1. Thanks for putting together this list; it’s a great jumping-off point. Obviously, it’s not realistic to spend upwards of $600 on all the parts necessary to pull this off. I’m hoping to do a John Hammond this year, if the stars align and I can get what I need in time. Here’s a comparable item list that I assembled:

    Shirt: Guayabera (four-pocket button shirt) – $17 http://amzn.to/1qvPLif
    Pants (ideally a thin, cotton sweatpant, but I think pleats are the wrong direction) – $33 http://amzn.to/XmSthU
    Shoes – $25 http://amzn.to/1puXu11
    Wedding Band (comfort fit, plated tungsten) – $18 http://amzn.to/1kpGHxG
    Right-hand pinkie ring – $18 http://amzn.to/1qvQ3Wh
    Glasses (should be silver, but gunmetal is fine) – $20 http://amzn.to/1nYlo70
    Watch – $22 http://amzn.to/1qOU5xU
    Assumed A-shirt (aka wife-beater) or comparable undershirt – Walmart

    Before shipping and not counting the cane, I got away with about $150 all said. The pinkie ring and the watchband should have white, ambery-type stones (as seen here: http://bit.ly/XmpXNf), but I couldn’t find anything similar, so I figured onyx and a crocodile strap wouldn’t be too far-fetched.

    Now, the hard part – the cane: There’s a guy, Gavin Robinson, who can sell you the amber egg, but I haven’t contacted him yet to see if he’ll do the full cane, as he has done in the past. The egg will run you about $75, and I saw somewhere that the whole cane would be closer to $270. He’s at http://www.myjurassicpark.com and seems to be the ONLY place to get this thing pre-made.

    I might try to craft a cane myself, as it’s a resin-cast, painted, sealed cane, but it’s a first foray and I’ve little confidence, but I have to try.

    Again, thanks for getting me started, and wish me luck!
