New York-based menswear company Bonobos wants to create a shark suit inspired by the Left Shark dancer at Katy Perry's Super Bowl XLIX halftime show

Introducing your 2015 Halloween costume! Katy Perry, Missy Elliott, and Lenny Kravitz were great and all, but the real breakout star of the Super Bowl XLIX halftime show on Sunday, Feb. 1, was Left Shark, Perry's fabulously fishy backup dancer. Left Shark was so popular, in fact, that New York-based clothing company Bonobos is thinking about remaking the so-called "Shark Suit" for people to purchase. (The real Left Shark was dancer Bryan Gaw.)

The brand — which specializes in menswear — even created a landing page for its proposed Super Bowl-inspired costume. Interested parties can submit their email addresses for updates on the project.

"You asked for shark costumes (no you didn't?) and we responded," a message on the page states. "If we receive enough interest, we will make this shark costume, inspired by the half-time of a popular football game. Enter your email and we will keep you updated on everything shark costume related."

CEO Andy Dunn told Re/code this week that the company had already gotten "thousands of emails" about the idea. "Most-liked Instagram for us of the year," he told the site. "The world is a funny place."

Whether the Shark Suit actually comes to fruition remains to be seen, but Bonobos did tweet at Perry's costume designer Marina Toybina with a proposal. "Great work last night," the tweet read. "We are sincerely interested in a collab."

For now, at least, the Shark Suit is just a dream — but one the Bonobos team is determined to keep alive. On Monday, Feb. 2, the company's Twitter account shared a picture of a #SharkSuit inspiration board, with swatches of fabric and pictures of sharks and shark products.
