Be One of America’s Very Own SuperHero – The Cowboy and the Cowgirl.
The American cowboy and cowgirl are unique individuals. The Cowboy is probably not as noble and ruggedly handsome as the images created of them in the movies.
We often hear more about the Cowboy than the Cowgirl, but each has contributed much to the exploration, taming and settling of this great Nation, throughout the American West.
Often the image of the cowboy is that of an outlaw, renegade, gunslinger and loner.
Much of the legend of the cowboy came from stories about the broken southern army who took to the life of the cowboy rather than attempt to integrate into a society that included making peace with the “Yankee”.
That type of individual did account for many of the outlaws who went on to become the stuff of the legends and stories we hear about to this day.
Dress Up as the Bounty Hunter from the Wild West in the Western Costume shown on the left.
It was a difficult life. Many of the stories became a part of our history. But far more of the stories glorify the hard lifestyle on the trail.
The renegade and loner image was combined with the rough life of an actual cowboy.
The western movies usually portray the Gunslingers and the Bounty Hunters spending many hours in the Saloons drinking, enjoying the company of saloon girls and partaking in their favorite card games. Gambling was a part of their lifestyle.
The Ladies will follow you anywhere when you appear at the next Western Party or Halloween costume party dressed as The Gambler as pictured on the right.
The successful Gambler would travel from town to town earning a living through card games of chance. Disputes would often arise due to claims of cheating and gunfights would settle the matter.
Think of Clint Eastwood in The Good, The Bad and the Ugly and A Fist Full of Dollars. His western movies depicted the lone, renegade cowboy.
The image of the cowboy grew larger than what the actual lifestyle of those simple but rugged men must have lived in the American west.
It was an image of a man who demonstrated the rugged individualism that Americans consider to be one of the central unifying traits that makes America great.
The American cowboy defends the virtue of the weak and helpless. He is a staunch defender of family and those in society who are tried to carve out a home in a difficult world.
The American cowboy fits with the ‘superhero” image that also appeals to the American system of justice and morality and values.
One of America’s Favorite Masked Man was …
Hi Ho Silver…and Away!
For many years we followed the adventures of The Lone Ranger traveled with his faithful steed, Silver and his Native American Indian childhood friend and partner in justice, Tonto.
This Masked Man was a Hero of the West. The perfect Western Couples outfit. You can be the Hero of your next Western or Costume party as you and your other half dress up in Lone Ranger Western Costumes.
The Lone Ranger’s Code was a belief in our Creator, Country and fellow man. To fight for what was right and for truth and justice.
The cowboy concept grew up from a history of our country that included the settling of a big wild western land and the settling of a wilderness that pit the god given will and intellect of man against God’s creation. And it was the will of man that prevailed. This is why American’s admire the cowboy. The Cowboy represents peoples own struggles for greatness, for success and to be a heroic figure.
