In part one of this two-part blog series, we went over some of the top ideas you might pass on to your kids if they’re looking for a rodeo theme in their Halloween costume this year. While we know it’s still quite a while until the spooky day actually hits, we know many kids and their parents love to get started on costume ideas months in advance, and we figured we’d line up with the program!
At A Cut Above Buckles, we’re happy to offer a wide selection of custom rodeo belt buckles, Western accessories and numerous other items to help you build any kind of Western outfit you’re in need of in Texas — and Halloween is one of our busiest times each year. What are some other possible ideas to consider for your child’s rodeo-themed Halloween costume? Here are a few.
For those looking for a slightly simpler costume idea, but one where your child can carry multiple accessories and really look the part, consider going as a roper. A cowboy hat, chaps, Western boots and of course, a lasso are all you really need to put this one together. You can find most of these items used — or even better, borrow them from a friend who rides!
For those who aren’t familiar, the roper is the one on horseback who tries to lasso the calf (or in this case, perhaps a younger sibling) and secure it for points. If you’re going this route for your child, just be sure they’re old and mature enough to know not to use their rope in any mean or dangerous ways when interacting with others.
One of the most well-known rodeo events, bronc riding, is a great option for a Halloween costume as well. A plain Western shirt, jeans, boots and a cowboy hat are the foundation for this outfit. You can even find fake horses at some party stores to help complete the look — or if you have access to a real horse, that’s an even better option!
Cowboy or Cowgirl
Finally, perhaps the single most common rodeo-themed costume idea of all is to just go as a cowboy or cowgirl. This one is easy enough that just about anyone can do it, and you have a lot of leeway in terms of what kind of accessories you want to add. A bandana, rodeo belt buckle, Western boots and a cowboy hat are some classic choices, but you can really add or subtract just about anything to personalize the costume to your child’s liking.
As you can see, there are plenty of great rodeo-themed Halloween costume ideas out there for kids of all ages. At A Cut Above Buckles, we’re proud to be your go-to source for custom rodeo belt buckles and other products in Texas. Contact us today to learn about our products or services!
