It's All About The Cowgirl Boots


This young lady is dressed in regular denim shorts and a top and without those boots, no one would know she's a cowgirl. So...gather your usual jean outfit and add western boots and a hat...you're a cowgirl. It's an easy costume to assemble.

Perdy Cowgirl Costume Boots


Now, that's what I am talking about. Take a gander at these fancy Western cowgirl boots...it's boots like these that are going to make your costume. These ladies Western style boots come in decorated in felt, inlay, embroidery, carvings, colorful graphics, fringed, or you can buy costume boot covers to make your everyday boots look like they belong to a cowgirl.

A few Western boot brands are Corral, Frye, Lucchese, Justin, Tony Lama, Ariat, Laredo, or Durango. Check some of the beautiful designs at your local online shoe seller to get an idea of which ones you want to wear.

Cowgirl Hats To Top Off Your Halloween Costume


Western hats, like the boots, come in many different designs and colors. Some are inexpensive and made of straw, others are hand-crafted works of art that cost a small fortune. Since this is for a Halloween costume, I suggest the inexpensive hats. If you happen to fall in love with a more expensive model, why not buy a cheap hat and decorate it yourself with your chosen colors and embellishments.

You can find lots of ideas on Amazon or at a Western clothing supplier like Sheplers.

To succeed in life, you need three things: a wishbone, a backbone and a funnybone.
