A Historic Halloween

Historic outfits like the ones worn by this charming mother and daughter can make great Halloween costumes.

Halloween is coming soon and it is time to think about costume making. This year why not try something a little different and encourage the kids to dress as historical characters rather than the usual ghouls and goblins.

You could even throw a history-themed party for older children. They can dress as pioneers, medieval princes and princesses, kings, queens, dukes, and duchesses, a World War I flying ace and many other appealing characters.

Simplicity has some delightful costumes for your little historical characters. For the colonial miss, check this cute number. For an authentic Native American costume look at these.
