Ye Old George and Martha

Ye Old George and Martha
            Everyone knows that Halloween is generally a time for men to dress scary and women to dress sexy, but maybe it’s time for a departure from this method. Want to go the opposite route? Well, how about going historical! No, we don’t mean sexy hippie, we mean the Washingtons, George and Martha (among others, of course).
            Our George Washington Adult Historical Costume is the perfect way to pay your respects to our first leader even if it’s not the 4th of July! It includes a historically accurate blue jacket with gold trim, a grey vest and grey pants. If you’re going to dress like Georgie, you might as well go all the way. Top it off with our George Washington Colonial Wig, a smooth and distinguished (and very tall!) hairpiece that exudes a highly presidential air.
            If you’re looking to replicate the hairstyle of Miss Martha herself, we recommend our Madame De Pompadour Wig, a hairpiece that subtly compliments George Washington’s, so that husband and wife can look powerful and polished together.  
            If it’s another president’s look you desire, try our Abraham Lincoln Adult Historic Costume. This deluxe getup includes a long black coat (Abe’s signature), as well as pants, vest, stovepipe hat and requisite beard. Don’t be surprised if the neighbors start asking you for advice regarding the upcoming election!
            If you’re not looking for the whole shebang, check out our Abraham Lincoln Heroes in History Kit. This kit includes a beard and a stovepipe hat, but you’ll have to practice Abe’s speeches on your own time.
            Another idea is to try out our Ben Franklin Historical Costume, a look so close to Ben’s that you might swear you’ve transcended the limits of time! The costume includes a jacket with attached vest and white cuffs, matching knickers and white socks, shoe covers and a white jabot. Top it off with our Ben Franklin Heroes in History Kit, which includes the headpieces and eyeglasses needed to transform you from ordinary Joe into historical hero. 
            No matter which famous historical hero you choose, make sure to educate yourself on the politics that go with them! While you’re at it, educate yourself on the politics of today as well. With one of the most important elections in recent history coming up, make like a historical hero and know your stuff.
