Each year, millions of people purchase Halloween costumes that range in a variety of styles. Some people dress up as famous people, some as animals, and some as “things” like toasters or hot dogs. But, a Halloween costume can also be a history lesson. Someone who wants to look like a real historical figure can do a bit of studying and research to determine what the correct hairstyle, jewelry, hats, clothes, and shoes will be needed to carry out the costume. Today, some manufacturers understand that many people are looking for accuracy in their Halloween costume, and have created many historical outfits and accessories. For example, a woman who wants to be a Southern Belle will be able to find the correct undergarments for her “hoop skirts;” or for the man who wants to be a soldier, he can have a whole host of accurate uniforms to choose from.
