If you are looking for an FBI badge as a part of your Halloween costume or as a part of a law enforcement memorabilia collection, then you may be wondering about the best sources for locating one. As accessories for Halloween costumes go, it is definitely a lot easier to locate a light saber for a part of your Jedi costume than it is to locate an FBI badge; however, with a bit of research and shopping you will be able to readily locate a great replica of an FBI badge to complete your costume!
If, on the other hand, you are a collector of law enforcement accessories, then there are several sources to help you to add to your collection.
A Replica FBI Badge
Perhaps the easiest place to locate a replica FBI badge is to do an online search for one; there are many online retailers who offer these types of accessories for use as a part of dressing up. If you have had little to no luck searching costume and party accessory stores in your area then their online stores may have more options for you.
Don’t forget to do a quick search on Craigslist or eBay to find sellers that might have just what you are looking for!
If you simply can’t find what you’re looking for then consider looking for supplies at a craft store so that you can design and make your own FBI badge. While it may not look entirely authentic, for a Halloween costume you can’t really go wrong with an accessory that is made out of plastic, gold foil and a permanent marker. With a pair of novelty handcuffs in your back pocket, a pair of dark sunglasses, and a brightly colored squirt gun, your costume is complete!
Law Enforcement Memorabilia Collection
If you are looking to add an FBI badge to your collection you may find it difficult to locate one; however, they do occasionally come up for sale in the auction markets. If you do happen to come across one it is important that you make every effort to authenticate the badge so that you can be assured that your purchase is worth the money being spent.
Consider reaching out to other collectors, finding them online has never been easier. Fellow collectors could be the best source to help you to track down the latest addition to your collection. Not only could they prove to be a wealth of knowledge, but you may just run into someone who is looking to lighten their collection of an authentic FBI badge.
It should go without saying that it is a serious offense to falsely represent yourself as an FBI agent so be sure that your FBI badge and costume are simply used in good fun. Whether you are attending a Halloween party or putting the crowning touch to your collection, the most important thing to remember is to be a savvy consumer so that you don’t get ripped off while buying your FBI badge.
