Cowboy & Cowgirl Halloween Costume Ideas
Nothing is more fun then dressing up as a cowboy or cowgirl for Halloween. Let's take a look at some fun options for this year's Halloween party.
• Kid's Cowboy
The basic Kid's cowboy costume is simple, were beige pants or jeans, and included a dark or pattern colored shirt. A vest is optional too. Complete the outfit with boots and a western hat. Cowboys have to look scruffy, In this case, you may want to go for some fake stubble. Sparsely rub some brown or black makeup on your kid's chin until it looks like a 5 o'clock shadow.
Another fun costume for kids is Woody from Toy Story. What you will need to get that perfect Woody appearance is brown cowboy boots, blue jeans, yellow shirt, vest with a cow print on it, brown belt, red bandana and brown hat.
Remember to be polite and positive because these are some of the characteristics of Woody. There are dozens of other popular Western cowboy characters, so you can make some other experiments too.
• Sexy Cowboy
Another good idea for a cowboy costume is the so-called Elegant cowboy costume. Elegancy usually requires simplicity, so it won't take much before you create this costume. First of all, you need a pair of black boots.
After that, you can use a pair of blue denim jeans or black jeans. On top of that you should use a dark or completely shirt with pockets. It would be nice to use a shirt with white lining and metal buttons. However, If you want to look hip, than a plaid shirt will work too. Don't forget the black belt and the black cowboy hat.
• Sexy Cowgirl
Now this is a simple, yet attractive Halloween costume for women. The wild west has always served as an inspiration for Halloween costumes, but this time we are talking about sexy costumes. Grab a pair of really short jeans mini skirt or shorts and a knotted shirt with squares. It would be best to wear boots and a cowboy hat. This is a very comfortable costume, but make sure to get extra clothing if the weather is cold.
Rodeo is a contest or exhibition in which cowboys show their knowledge and skill at roping calves, riding broncos and much more. This is a very popular activity even today when we live in a digital world. If you want to make this costume you need pant chaps that include white and brown splotches. This is a similar design to the pattern found in marked ponies.
