When we think about the History of Cowgirls the first name that typically comes to mind for most people is Annie Oakley. And while she's probably the most famous Cowgirl of all there are many other young ladies who assumed this roll back in the Wild West. Usually these women were daughters or wives of the men who owned the cattle ranches. Then around 1920 women began entering Rodeo Competitions but it wasn't until the introduction of Wild West Shows that we began to see the type of Cowgirls we think of today. During these shows, girls would demonstrate their expert horse riding and roping skills in an effort to entertain audience's worldwide! And of course entertaining cowgirls need fabulous costumes! With such a rich history, there is no question why so many little ladies love to dress up on Halloween as Cowgirls.
In addition to Halloween, Cowgirl costumes are great for school History reports, Western theme parties or Square Dance Events. They are fun and comfortable to wear and always a popular costume choice for girls! Cowgirl costumes typically consist of a shirt and vest on top with a matching full swing skirt on the bottom. And naturally a cowboy hat and cowgirl boots are essential to completing any outfit. Cowgirl costumes are often seen with some sort of fringe trim and today most come with some variation of cow print. At Anytime Costumes we offer a broad selection of Cowgirl costumes for kids.
