ok, So I made both of my DD's costumes. DH and were going to be cowgirl/cowboy for Halloween. I cannot find a cheap felt hat for myself anywhere. He already has everything for his costume. So I was thinking because I don't have a hat maybe I should be a country girl or farm girl? 

I need some homemade ideas of what I could add to my costume. I have a red plaid button up shirt, jeans, & cowgirl boots, what else? Thanks...

I'd buy a straw hat and have braided pigtails. Maybe a bandana sticking out of your pocket, a touch of hay here or there, and call it a day. It sounds like you have all the essentials for that costume.

OR

You could dress up as a saloon girl and have DH be your cowboy.

Good luck and have a Happy Halloween!

Not all cowgirls wear a hat, lol, I live in Wyoming... I have noticed :).  Is your hair long?  Lots of wide curls and maybe  a piece or two pulled back.  Belt buckles are more common for cowgirls than hats... or just a t-shirt that says "Cowgirl Up" "Cowgirl 4 life"  or something.  Too bad you can't raid my closet :)

Native-American inspired jewlery... lots of chunky charms....

LOL! I was just thinking "Come pick an outfit out at my house!" LOL!

It's expensive being a cowgirl. Or at least LOOKING like an authentic cowgirl. I have no idea where to get a cheap felt hat! Walmart has some pretty cheesey "cowgirl" belt buckles....heck, even the jeans are at least $50 bucks! lol!

Perhaps instead of a hat go with a kercheif/bandana on your head.  Braids or curls hanging down the back.  Think a little "country girl" instead of cowgirl for some ideas.  I agree with the belt buckle.  Check out your local thrift stores.


good Luck!

ok, I get the idea that not ALL real cowgirl where a cowgirl hat or maybe not very often. It is a costume..If I don't wear a hat, I am just looking for additional ideas to make my costume appear that I am a cowgirl/country girl. Thanks for those that have given there ideas, I look forward to any more suggestions!
