Halloween is a great time to dress up in a wild west cowboy or cowgirl costume outfit. But these types of costumes also go well for many other types of costume parties throughout the year.
Did you know that you probably already have the materials for a homemade DIY wild west costume in your closet at home? Most people do and they don’t even know it.
What do you need for a western cowboy or cowgirl costume? Well, check out this Family Dollar website for some great tips on what you need. They say you create or make a homemade costume for as little as ten bucks, either from stuff at home or some affordable items at the store.
One of the essential items is a bandana of course. You can by them almost anywhere, and of course Amazon has them here. And of course you need to know the right way to tie a bandana so check out some instructions at this website.
What about a lasso? Well, the Family Dollar website link above lists some suggestions for making your own lasso or buying some affordable rope. Once you have it, visit this page for instructions on tying a lasso.
What about the rest of the homemade DIY cowboy or cowgirl costume? Well, grab a white dress shirt, some jeans, and some boots. You also need a cool cowboy hat which you can find at lots of places, including Amazon.com.
You can also buy full western costumes like The Lone Ranger in many stores. But it is a whole lot more fun to create your own simple and easy outfit from stuff in your home.
Be extra careful if your costume includes toy guns as those present an extra danger in public, so make sure children are taught never to point them at people or vehicles.
