Wild West Costume Ideas
The Wild West conjures up all sorts of images, legends, folklore, and history. Some of it is real, some of it is based on truth, and yet more is just a yarn spun from nostalgia or Hollywood. Either way, the legends and history of American Expansion make for some great costumes.
Don't worry, a horse is not required for this costume. The standard looks for a cowboy is a duster, a cowboy hat, sturdy boots, a flannel shirt, and some blue jeans. Some of those can be found at a costume shop easily enough, as can a full outfit.
The quality of such a costume might be questionable though. Most of the clothes you might already own, and, if not, can be found a thrift store for much less than a new pair of jeans can cost. Dusters are not cheap, and you might not feel like buying one, so a costume version or old trench coat can do the job if needed. Or you can just go without. If the situation allows, a toy holster and pop gun revolver will add a nice touch, but feel free to go without such accessories if reasons prevent such additions.
The outfit here is going to be pretty much the same as a cowboy costume. the advantage here is a chance to include more accessories or touches to add a bit of person flair. For example, more stylish boots are an option, a feminine style cowboy hat, and perhaps, if you are so inclined, a bit of jewelry. A tasteful necklace, bracelet, or some rings can add a nice touch. You can also use brighter colors or switch out the flannel for a more feminine style, if you prefer.
Again, the basic outfit is the same, but it's the little touches that make the difference. For example, outlaws in old movies usually wore darker colors. Back in the days of black and white film, this made it easy to tell who the bad guy was. This tradition carried over into color film as well. So, for this costume, using darker colored clothing makes a lot of sense.
For an accessory, a scarf or bandana to cover your face would add a nice touch. It's hard to identify someone if all you can see is their eyes, after all. This costume works well for men and women, too, and women could have fun adding a seductive element if they so choose.
While Westerns have gone into and out of popularity over the decades, the motifs of the genre are pretty well known. This makes costumes based on the Western genre incredibly iconic. They can also be pretty easy to put together. With a few touches here and there, you can personalize the costume and not break the bank in the process.
Howdy, partner! Nothing recalls old America like a Western Sheriff on the prowl for lawless bandits. Make yourself into the personification of pure justice by wearing a Western Sheriff Halloween costume this year. Here are some ideas on how to put one together:
As a sheriff, you're probably going to want to dress in black. Wear a nice Western dress shirt with a black vest and a pair of black pants. Some leather chaps would pull the look together even more. Drape yourself in an old West-style long black jacket and don't forget to add the gun holster.
One way to make this easier is to get a pre-made sheriff outfit from a party store. Wild West costumes like these are very common.
Part of having authority is having a big hat, so make sure that you get a large black sheriff's hat to complete your look. On the other end, you're going to need a pair of dark boots that you will use to crush the enemies of the law.
There are a few things that The Law can't do without out in the old West. First of all, you will need a gun in order to stop those varmints right in their tracks. You can find a fake revolver fairly easily at a party store, or even at a discount store for very cheap.
Next, you will need your sheriff's badge for some credibility, or else you're not going to be able to make any arrests. You can also get this for next to nothing usually, especially if you go with a generic plastic badge that's shaped like a sheriff's star.
