Patriotic Costumes For Halloween

Patriotic Costumes For Men, Women and Couples

When looking for a costume for Halloween, people are usually of a couple different schools of thinking: Scary, Gruesome, Pretty and/or Original. Couples sometimes are looking for great combination costumes, and Patriotic costumes fit nicely into two categories: Couples and Original.

The Statue of Liberty (torch sold separately) and Uncle Sam couple is always appropriate. A Confederate and/or Union Army officer with their lady partner. And stretching a bit, a Southern Belle confederate sympathizer or a Yankee woman can be considered somewhat patriotic.

Born on the Fourth of July costumes are fun and can be any original costume of red, white and blue. Betsy Ross who sewed the first American flag is a very cool costume for a lady, in a period dress, with mob cap, rimless glasses and of course her flag! Her male counterpart could be Ben Franklin or Paul Revere. Martha and George Washington, and Abe and Mary Lincoln are good pair costumes.

Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, Bill Clinton, Nixon and Obama, are all presidents who are readily recognizable for costumes. Any armed forces uniform is patriotic, as well as space scientists and astronauts.

World War II lady WACs (Women’s Army Corp) and Sailor boys or Bugle boys are authentically patriotic. As well as any type soldier, renegade, or warrior who is fighting for his country.

Whigs and Tories with 19th century jackets and pants and white Historical Colonial Man Wig are also good. If you want to be very creative, go as the American Bald Eagle.

On the cute side, any cheerleader outfit with USA on the sweater and red, white and blue pompoms would be appropriate patriotic costumes.

And if you want to get really far out, the dance hall ladies who “entertained” them all.
