How to be Cocky Like Booth


I had to wade into this 'get your own Booth Cocky belt buckle' discussion that's cropped up around the Bones fandom in the last few days. A few days ago on 206 Bones I saw a link for an ebay auction of a Cocky belt buckle. It has the same image as Booth's belt buckle, but it's surrounded by black instead of the silver he wears on the show. Now SearchingBones has the same thing up.

Well...

I'm not the only person to point this out, but I wanted to have it here for anyone interested: You don't have to rush out to bid on a sorta-like-Booth's belt buckle. You can get the belt buckle, surrounded in the pewter/silver border, for a set price. And, on another site, for the ladies, there's even a Cocky ring.

That explains how Bones was able to replace it so quickly in the last episode! ;)

There's also a Money Clip, Cufflinks, and Vitamin Case!!!

Thanks for the links. Somebody out there is trying to capitalize on Booth Fashion Mania. LOL

Milky said...

lol, bearlee

If I have to be honest, I'd love having one of those...

The site that sells the ring also sells the cocky belt buckle, though it's more expensive (not sure about shipping though). The link: http://www.ohsaidrose.com/catalog/item/4065350/4199038.htm

Hahaha, funny story. So I have a roommate/best friend, who I got obsessed with Bones at the beginning of the season this year, because he asked me one day why I like Bones so much and I said, "I'm not going to lie, but I think you and I are a lot like Booth and Brennan."

Anyway, so for Christmas I thought it would be cool to get him the cocky belt buckle for a gift, and I honestly didn't think he'd have been paying close enough attention to know where it was from. I got the Classic Hardware one. He practically hit the ceiling when he opened it (he knew what it was, "OMG! You got me the cocky belt buckle!"), and he's worn it every day since (to work, to outings with his grandparents, whether it matches what he's wearing or not...).

Just thought I'd share. Haha!

jenny said...

oh,Sophie this is a really funny and also very touching story!

and of course i think any fan of Bones would love to have one of those

i would hit the ceiling,too, if someone gave me a gift like that!!!

Milky said...

loved your story, sophie!
and as Jeannie said, I'm sure any Bones fan would love receiving such a gift.

I must add, though... what a way of making a fan out of him, uh? you and he are like Bones and Booth? Interesting! lol

Amanda said...

LOL. I wanted to get one for my dad (he likes the show and wears bizarre belt buckles) but he already wears the British motorcycle buckle my mom got him.

I mentioned this here before once, but a while back we had some important stuff going on where I work (we all wear gov't issued uniforms). My boss--who I think watches Bones, but only ever talks about 24-- gave a speech that included a line of "NO logo belt buckles." It was almost word-for-word Carolyn's speech, with a couple of tweaks to apply to us.

I have a crazy buckle I could wear that most folks wouldn't notice, but instead I wear flashy socks.

Shep said...

Haha! I'd love to have one just for the sake of it. Might not wear the belt buckle but definitely the ring!

Dani said...

hahahha, even my hubby is impressed, and he used to bag Bones!!

mwahahahaha for converting him!!

CupcakeBean said...

We should all get the rings and wear them like we're an exclusive club or something! Like decoder rings! :)

OMG OMG I want the ring :) and I want to buy one of the belt buckles for my boyfriend! ah I'm not gonna lie, I'm definitely gonna end up owning some "cocky" paraphernalia

A friend of mine got one of these for Christmas, he immediately showed some photos of his Cocky belt buckle.

cd3010 said...

hmm, well that ring,... let´s say I ordered it and I am about to find out how long shipping to Europe takes,...

When I first saw the "Cocky" belt buckle on the show, I was thinking, "Hey, that's what my scool mascot was called!"
I went to University of South Carolina, and yes, our football team are called the Gamecocks, and our mascot is Cocky :D
At least, it's more positive than Michael Phelps hitting the bong instead of the pool there and Borat messing with dumb, drunk frat boys (shrug)

juan hernandez said...

Is that the right bird? It looks like some kind of parrot - shouldn't it be a rooster? I didn't look that closely on the one on the show.

Chenoa said...

For Juan - The bird on the buckle is a cockatoo, thus the "cocky" nickname :)

Joe Dick said...

That makes sense. I too thought it meant a rooster - you know, a cock being a male chicken. They strut around like they own the place. That seems a bit more manly and Booth-like than a cockatoo.

Chenoa said...

I agree Joe - but I always thought that plumage display cockatoos do when trying to get their mate's attention was similar to Booth's use of his charm smile ;D

Just found this place selling them too! http://cockybeltbuckle.bigcartel.com/

Classic Hardware (classichardware.com) is the company that actually makes the products, and all of the items- belt, ring, pillbox, etc.. are available there. Usually a few dollars cheaper than on eBay.

Jerry said...

This site popped up for me too. http://cockybeltbuckle.com
